Surreal Waltz

I have had this song on my Waltz Wednesdays list for a long time. Been waiting patiently for this day.

Simon says this song is a tribute to the doo-wop groups of the '50s that he loved so well. But I like it as a musical version of a surrealist painting: depicting nothing real, but leaving behind a very specific feeling.

Finally, and for no reason that I can fathom, searching that video on YouTube caused it to suggest this next one. What follows is the single ballsiest performance in rock history: to do this song in front of those guys. You try this, you better nail it.

So they did.
