What music picks you up when you are down? As much as I would like to hide it, I have to say that I love Tim Minchin. He’s da bomb! Hearing his music; his drawly voice, his well chosen words and cleverly consolidated rhymes, just makes me smile. He’s terribly rude, he’s very outspoken, appalingly offensive and absolutely nothing is sacred… which I find completely refreshing and awfully funny. Not even sex, not swearing, not children, not religion – he’s a brave man. A very funny man.
I wouldn’t say the things he does. But I will laugh because he does.
I’m considering ditching Michael Buble for him. Ooh ahh! The scandal.
But I won’t. I couldn’t. Tim’s music is very funny, Michael’s is beautiful, resounding ~ but so not funny!
Which musician lifts your spirits when you need a smile? And why?
