All These Poses of Classical Torture.....

Image hosting by Photobucket Why yes, yes I have chosen a Rufus Wainwright tune for todays Musical Monday selection. This song is called Poses, and here we get to see Rufus in his long haired, not even 30 years old yet phase. Can you say, deliciousness? I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do. I just adore this song.

As most of you know, I have seen Rufus three times in the past week. (Yes, talking to him for 58 seconds and shaking his hand counts as seeing!) If you thought I was a fan before, I am now totally, and hopelessly gone on him!

Listening to this tune, I feel like i'm in a smoke filled piano bar, leaning heavily on my table....twirling my finger in my whiskey glass, drowning my sorrows....the entire scene filmed in black and white, except for my lips....bright red.

Corrnnnyyy!

By the way, the Saturday night show was also tremendous! More later, betas.




The yellow walls are lined with portraits
And I've got my new red fetching leather jacket
All these poses such beautiful poses
Makes any boy feel like picking up roses

There's never been such grave a matter
As comparing our new brand name black sunglasses
All these poses such beautiful poses
Makes any boy feel as pretty as princes

The green autumnal parks conducting
All the city streets a wondrous chorus singing
All these poses oh how can you blame me
Life is a game and true love is a trophy

And you said
Watch my head about it
Baby you said watch my head about it
My head about it
Oh no oh no oh no
Oh no oh no no kidding

Reclined amongst these packs of reasons
For to smoke the days away into the evenings
All these poses of classical torture
Ruined my mind like a snake in the orchard
I did go from wanting to be someone now
I'm drunk and wearing flip - flops on Fifth Avenue

Once you've fallen from classical virtue
Won't have a soul for to wake up and hold you

In the green autumnal parks conducting
All the city streets a wondrous chorus
Singing all these poses now no longer boyish
Made me a man ah but who cares what that is

And you said watch my head about it
Baby you said watch my head about it
My head about it
Oh no oh no oh no
Oh no oh no well you said
Watch my head about it
Baby you said watch my head about it
My head about it
Oh no oh no

no kidding
