When the video for Sue (In Season of Crime) first came out I was sending the link out to everyone, and left a post saying this was exactly where I thought he should be today. He was always a bit of the thin, slightly demented crooner.. a Johnny Mathis or a Crosby or even a SInatra.. always singing with a voice beyond his age like Scott Walker (who he idolizes).
Now that he actually is that age, I thought Sue epitomized exactly where he was heading with the Thin White Duke, half-stoned but sharp dressed, smoking crooner personality; demented, dissonant jazzy pieces showcasing his classic vocal delivery style warped by a touch of insanity and brilliance.
But he could eat a bunch of hot dogs and onions and record it, mix it with compression and a big band, and I'd probably like it. He still hasn't lost himself.
