    This song seems to have that vocal affectation that I thought Eddie had eliminated: "round" becomes "ruh-how-ound."
    That affectation is supposedly a recommendation by a vocal specialist, to help preserve Ed's voice. If that's the reason, it makes me sad, because I surely want to preserve Ed's voice, but I hate the affectation.
    That's interesting. I'm not a professional singer* so I don't have a sense of why this would be helpful. It also makes me wonder why you don't hear this sort of thing from other great vocalists.

    *Though I'm often told I have the voice of an angel...
    Singers sing words differently than how they would talking at times. Like for example All By Myself. Would be sung All By Mahself.

    That's not what I'm talking about, and Eric Carmen would disagree with your specific example.
    I gather speed from you fucking with me.

    I didn't say he sung it that way. Just that that's a way to sing it. Or All Bah Mahself. Talking about the Celine type of singers

    It’s a Counting Crows song. I mean this as a compliment, but that’s what Something Special sounds like to me.
