That's pretty awful, actually. Horribly theatrical.

oh, my! This reminds me of how I used to jump on the fireplace and sing something dead seriously to my parents until at the penultimate note my voice would crack, my dad would laugh so hard he'd have to put the camcorder down and my sister would start sailing my Barbie dolls through the air.
Yes, horribly theatrical it is :mrgreen:

maybe you all are right.
Nevertheless : this is cheap male waffle.

I accept ten times more the theatrical performance of a in her childhood abused woman than the cheap talk of cool men.
Sinead doesn't earn to be critizised by you in this way.

To critize the catholic church for the treatment of the abuse of children by employees and dignitaries of the church would be a better thing.
The Pope doesn't sing "Times" as he doesn't want the times to be a-changin'. Theatricalism may be necessary in such times.

"Tolling for the aching ones whose wounds cannot be nursed
For the countless confused, accused, misused, strung-out ones an' worse
An' for every hung-up person in the whole wide universe
an' we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing"

very theatrical verses too - and Bob doesn't have to be ashamed of them!

I love this line "cheap talk of cool men". Seriously, what's not to love about Sinead and the performance of this song. Methinks that real emotion scares many of you here. Let's see. She takes a classic and shows it is timeless and is still alive. Oh, right, not cool. Gotta have ironic distance to tread in these waters. Poseurs. Rave on, Sinead!

Take a tip from Bob's White House performance, O'C. By going minimalist, he managed to convey more passion and emotion in one line than all of your arm flailing combined. A person doesn't have to raise their voice to have conviction.

Best version I've ever heard! (digging the Druid dress too)*



*Viewer warning: Say you love this performance or it means that you are: a liar, a heretic, a hypocrite, a woman hater, a poseur, afraid of emotion, condone the Vatican's involvement in the cover up of abuse and are a cheap talking cool male waffler.

Love Sinead, hate her music. What can you do?

So I guess I like this performance.... in theory.

Of course. All the people who think child abuse is just fine will mend their ways after seeing this.
Sorry, but that is really ridiculous. Of course Sinead is right about the Catholic Church, and still her performance in that clip is awfully contrived. All those grand gestures, sorry, it's pathetic.

Wow, I'd love to come back (or return to) as a male some day. And I hope I am a cheap one, one that takes my dates to greasy spoons to eat waffles. That would be cool.
Do me a favor? Search for "Sinead" from the last day or two and see my defense of her performance at the 30th ann. concert. I was standing up for her right to protest, her bravery in the face of injustice and her courage as an abused child turned activist woman.

This version of this song was pretty awful in my opinion. Didn't say she didn't mean what she was singing, I just thought it sucked.
Off to find the syrup...

Would it be sexist for me to say that the cheap female waffle looks slutty? Could I make up for it by saying that the cheap male waffle really looks like a child abuser?

I think he's a poseur and she's a heretic.

I think she's more attractive as a full figured brunette. I never liked the shaved head, shapeless alien look.

That means a lot from someone who called her a shithead.

Yep, I hated all that stuff that Jimi did with 'Watchtower', all that arm flailing was completely unnecessary.

Heard that she is a priest of "Palmarian Catholic Curch", furthermore, has a Bipolar disorder.

It explains everything, included this scary dress.

Yes it must be an embarrassment to you that she has publicised the systematic abuse of children in Ireland by the Catholic Church, aided by its friends in government.

Yes our "Government" & Our "Church" are the national embarrassment.

Sinéad O'Connor is a singer with strong opinions.

Fair play to her!
