    Just found her as well on Last.fm. Very sad she died so early. If you look her up in google images, she always has such a wonderful smile.

    Fuck you, Last FM. Give us "Lhasa de Sela" back. - Not the smartest move, Last.fm. [2]

    Yeah, it really makes no sense for them to redirect "Lhasa de Sela" to "Lhasa", considering that the latter can refer to multiple artists whereas there's only one Lhasa de Sela. Not the smartest move, Last.fm.

    [Why on earth did last.fm change all my listens of Lhasa de Sela to Lhasa? I specifically have tagged them all with her whole name not to end up on this page that is combined with some other musicians. And now it seems I have zero listens of Lhasa de Sela and 400 of Lhasa suddenly. Anyone else have a similar problem?] +1, and may I add last.fm did the same with Eugenia León and Luz Casal... They should really have someone from at least the main languages of the world checking for this sort of things...

    @FUCK-YOUR-SHIT. Musical ignorance you say? Why dear, before jumping into hastened conclusions such as me being stupid, you should first consider the fact that you're the one who being excessively pathetic... i didn't call your mom a bitch anyway, so easy there, fellow, you're acting like a pansy fanchick whose idol has just been bashed. Fyi i have a prob with the tags, so i don't give a flying turd about the overprotective twats around here. :[
