Delirious With Weird

Saturday, December 20, 2003  
I mean, he sounds like a jar of molasses smoking a fag, perched on a velvet cushion. It's ludicrous but it's incredible. He sounds like he can't be arsed and yet he's got all of Broadway exploding behind him. Sod nicking things from minor players, he's stealing "Bolero" off Ravel and making it look like he wrote it himself. If I never hear anyone else sing again I wont mind. He's totally making up these melodies as he's going along only you know he's not, he's not, he's just so fucking good that he sounds as if he is. It's like Buckley and Sinatra- no, someone better than Sinatra, more fulsome, more given to bathos because bathos is much more affecting than pathos when it's done right, completely through overblown and mawkish and pompous and out of the other side of ridiculousness into some beautiful other country that most other people are too embarrassed to even try and get to.
