I am NOT thinking of:
“Maybe it’s another Dinah I’m thinking of.” It is NOT Dinah Washington I am thinking of. Wrong era, for one. The woman in my head is definitely from the mid- to late-‘60s. Also, in my head, the singer isn’t a jazz/blues singer but more of a soul/R&B singer.
“’Diana’ sounds kind of like ‘Dinah.’ Maybe I am thinking of Diana Ross.” It is NOT Diana Ross I am thinking of. She is thin, has big eyes, and is popular in the right era/genre I’m imagining. But the person I’m imagining just doesn’t look like Diana Ross. Also, her chin is nowhere near pointy enough.
“’Dionne’ and ‘Dinah' both start with a ‘D.’ Maybe I am thinking of Dionne Warwick.” It is NOT Dionne Warwick I am thinking of. Though she has a very angular face, is from the right era, it’s just not matching up to the (imaginary?) person in my head.
“Hm, Eartha Kitt’s head is kind of shaped like the spider’s in James and the Giant Peach. Maybe I am thinking of Eartha Kitt.” It is NOT Eartha Kitt I am thinking of. The person I am thinking of was definitely never Catwoman.
So, can anyone tell me who I’m thinking of? Did maybe my brain combine characteristics of all of these women? Am I thinking of an actress, maybe? Or maybe it is Dionne Warwick ...
This is killing me.
