World's Coolest Living Human Tells All

From 2004, please enjoy the incredibly great Ian Hunter and his rendition of the venerable "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square."

A song I'm beginning to think it may be impossible to do a bad version of.

Oh, and BTW, the reason I'm bringing all this up is because I heard Dennis Day sing it on an episode of the old Jack Benny radio show the other night.

Yeah, yeah. I know.

Just too hard to watch knowing that Ian's career may have ended.

Hunter's version is so wonderful because it's fucking Ian Hunter singing the song. My wife and I saw him sing the piece at a NYC show sometime within the past 10 years, with a different preface about his Mom, which too was wonderful. Few artists can do between-song patter like Hunter does.

And I too hope that Hunter can overcome tinnitus. Other artists have, but few at Hunter's age, which is now 79.

Very nice, Steve.

I really miss the original line-up of Mott the Hoople. One of my favorite bands.
