I would have been in full head-nodding-off mode.........

OK OK........ there is some intelligent musical taste on this Bored, so can SOMEONE please explain the appeal of this guy???

Dull one-tone voice, no warmth, contrived lyrics with some VERY basic imagery..... he would come fourth or fifth in an average karaoke contest.

Go on - I'm in a reasonable mood............ convince me.

Sorry, can't help there. While I have a couple of his albums, they are not ones I choose to play.. They are in the multichanger and are handy for parties around the house, seems to keep some of the fairer sex happy, instead of my usual party fare....

Clearly you weren't there last night! If you were, no words would need to be spoken!

Are you sure you are not mixing him up with Antonia Bennett?

Í like his music ... not a die hard fan! I noticed his head did bop a bit, but last night it just did not stop wiggling. Poor guy must have a sore neck today.
