|My favourite music critic, photographed |
in London last year (he wasn't listening
to my singing at the time this was taken)
He was singing along to the bits he knew and then we got to "Bicycle Race", which contains this couplet -
"You say shark I say hey man/Jaws was never my scene/And I don't like Star Wars"
Dude looked at me and said "Surely he can't mean that..."
Later on, as we drove past the Ibis on the way to Highcross, he turned the CD off altogether. I asked what was up.
"It was just getting to me," he said.
"What, the song or my singing?"
He looked at me gravely. "I don't want to hurt your feelings," he said, "but both."
That's me told then.
