Random American Idol Thought
When Paula, she of the frightening incoherence and slurring, gave David Archuleta, he of the smooth and strong voice with no idea at all of how to use it, Billy Joel's "And So It Goes" last night, I thought she might have been pretty cunning actually. The whole point of "And So It Goes" is that it be sung softly, with a weary, sad, defeated resignation to it. Which means no belting. No power notes. No loud notes. Which is something Archuleta can not do at all. And sure enough, his rendition was overbearing and completely tone-deaf. See?
But then she said she liked it. And i realized that she thinks this is how it should be sung.
