Same reason Sia used to do the face-hiding thing - he doesn't look like what people think a music star should look like, and it is an interesting hook. He's like 6'8" or something and looks like he should be manning the sound board for the musician instead of being the musician (or Drew Carey's comedic wingman).5 seconds in I was thinking you were punking me, 30 seconds later I was omg most awesome thing I’ve heard today…but wtf with the clown suit
I love PMJ. I don't normally do celebrity crushes, and she and I are both married, but in a hypothetical world I'd marry Morgan James just to listen to her voice (and Sarah Neimitz can by my hypothetic daughter, yes I know they're like 12 years apart in age, don't question it, it's imaginary).Puddles is probably my least favorite PMJ collaborator, personally. I know a lot of people love him though. Haley Reinhardt tends to sing some of my favorite PMJ covers.
Another musical voice-crush. I think she gave this song a lot of weight, but I know some others who prefer the original."Torn" by Natalie Imbruglia, which many people don't realize is a cover.
Wait, the guy who got famous for his rendition of Bo Diddley's Who Do You Love? complains about cover bands stealing his thunder? Irony abounds!On the other hand George Thorogood is really unhappy that a cover band gets more gigs playing "Bad to the Bone" than he does.
Phil took a lot of flack for Genesis's 80s pop turn* and for daring to make easy-listening music, but the man clearly has amazing technical knowledge surrounding the making of music.Funny enough, The Times They Are a-Changin' by Phil Collins is my favorite version of that song. So I can't argue with you lol.
