I love her version of "Show Me Heaven".

Some songs that I connect a memory too, are hard to listen to...I just listened to this song, after avoiding it for about 9 years. I still love it.

It is sad that she died so young.

I love her Best Hits album. I always like the song "Spanish Eddie".

Spanish Eddie is an awesome tune. She has many I like....Gloria, Self Control, Solitaire, to name a few. It is a shame that she died so young, 47 years old to be exact from a brain aneurysm.

I was saddened when I heard of her untimely passing, Patty Donahue singer of the Waitresses left this world too soon as well.

I have a Laura Branigan greatest hits cd, the self control song and video is my favorite.

Right now Branigan's greatest hits CD is the most wanted on my list. Other women may have risen higher in the 80s, but Laura was one of the best pure singers among female vocalists, and you can sense her heart and sould in every composition.

And yes, she could act well as well. Having seen her Automan appearance on YouTube (sure, she is singing for a large portion of it, but the dramatic parts aren't half bad either), I remain fairly convinced she may have had a nice second career if she'd given it a chance.

Just bought and listened another Branigan cd called "Touch" (1987).
Pretty good stuff, especially these three songs:

Laura Branigan - Spirit of Love

Laura Branigan - Over Love

Laura Branigan - Meaning of the Word
