I was at a high school 'cabaret' fundraiser a couple of years ago, and a young couple came out to sing "Thinking About You." When they got to the "you know, you were my first time" lyric, you could feel the respective sphincter of every parent (about 75% of the audience) retract simultaneously. There was even a delayed round of applause that had to be prompted by a single person clapping. It was incredible.
I told a friend of mine who lives about 10 hours away by car, and the same thing happened to him at the HS Talent Show he attended.
If it weren't for Nick Cave, I would be attending this show so I could be launched into the same laughing fit I had to stifle in that bizarre black-box auditorium.
I'm typically not one for slow heartbreak R&B, but "Thinking About You" destroys me every time. That and "Superwoman (Where Were You When I Needed You)".
