They Say You Think I'm Fine
This really explains why a Coldplay song made me cry yesterday. I don't feel so ashamed of myself now. I haven't updated the photo gallery this week, so tonight's moment of Zen comes in song. I was going to torture you all and offer up some Motley Crue, but this song just happened to come on the Winamp and I was like....yeah. They need to hear this. It needs to be shared. I truly believe that if Mike Patton hand't spent the two decades or so making wonderful music with Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Fantomas, Loveage, et al, he would be a lounge singer. Who knows? He may end up a lounge singer yet. His voice was made for it. His demeanor demands it. His suave good looks and crooner's voice calls for it. I would love to walk into some dark Atlantic City Casino one night, grab a gin and tonic and listen to Mike Patton do every lounge song ever made. The song I have for you tonight is just one of those and, I think, the best example of the range and multiple styles of Patton's voice. When I listen to this tune I want to be a lounge singer myself. Or the girl sitting in the front row swooning. Many a Saturday afternoon has found me belting this one out into the broom-turned-microphone. You dont' have to be obsessed with all things Patton/FNM like myself to enjoy this one. Grab your broomsticks and your American Idol fantasies: Faith No More - This Guy's In Love With You (originally by Herp Alpert) You know, you guys could actually start telling me (if you do download the songs I offer) what you think of them. Lyrics below so you can sing along.
You see this guy, this guy's in love with you Yes I'm in love who looks at you the way I do When you smile I can tell it know each other very well How can I show you I'm glad I got to know you 'cause I've heard some talk they say you think I'm fine This guy's in love and what I'd do to make you mine Tell me now is it so don't let me be the last to know My hands are shakin' don't let my heart keep breaking 'cause I need your love, I want your love Say you're in love and you'll be my guy, if not I'll just die Tell me now is it so don't let me be the last to know My hands are shakin' don't let my heart keep breaking 'cause I need your love, I want your love Say you're in love and you'll be my girl, if not I'll just die
