Absolute torch and twang
I was very very tired last night and I went and watched k.d. lang thinking I was about to waste $138 because I was going to be too tired to enjoy anything, especially after battling traffic to get to Our Esplanade. But let me tell you this now. Never, ever doubt k.d. lang and her ability to send your spirits soaring. k.d. is a goddess, even if her innuendo-laden quips are a bit on the lame side (but then Singapore audiences are easy to please). k.d. is the queen of the torch song. The rest of the year's program at Our Esplanade and Our Indoor Stadium is starting to look mighty pedestrian. Norah Jones and Diana Krall are going to sound like elevator music. Not bad for having just a small band and Our Own Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra to back her up. And I had some stuff stuck in my eyes when k.d. sang Roy Orbison's 'Crying'. It was that good. I've been meaning to watch you sing since 1992!
