When I was a kid Labor Day was all about watching the Jerry Lewis Telethon…
Fact: My extraordinarily able-bodied husband was one of Jerry’s kids one year.

Has anything on this planet aged as well as Colin Hay’s voice?
There are the stories his voice has literally told, and this song is a shining example. But the stories that voice implies at this point say so much more to me.
This is my favorite Colin Hay song. He sang it last year when I saw him, and I cried, right there in the theater. Then I cried about three more times to other songs and the stories he told about them. One of my favorite voices of all time.
He touched the skin on my neck with his hand and the sensory overload was almost too much to handle.
You know, this wasn’t my favorite song when it came out, but it might be now. This is a wonderful version of it, and I absolutely agree — Colin Hay’s voice has aged beautifully.
