Our sheltered, naive trained opera singer takes on Depeche Mode, Rush, and Chris Issak

Elizabeth Zharoff is the trained opera singer operating under the name The Charismatic Voice. If you haven’t seen any of her videos yet, she posts her reactions to hearing big rock songs for the first time and then analyzing the vocals. She’s…adorable.

Here are three of her latest: Depeche Mode and “Enjoy the Silence,” “Xanadu” from Rush (an interesting choice), and Chris Issak’s “Wicked Game.” Play close attention to that last one because it involves a drinking game. She gets wasted. (Via Larry and Rick J).
