The Weeknd

And no, that title is not a typo. ‘The Weeknd’ is the name of a Canadian singer I just discovered thanks to the Offspring. Part singer, part actor, part philosopher, this young man really knows how to tell a story:

But while the writer in me loves the concept behind ‘Gasoline’ – the reverse of Eudaimon, if you will – ‘Call Out My Name’ is the music that engages my emotions at a visceral level. Damn he can sing!


My heart will go on – Vittorio Grigolo

Young, Italian, cute, and with a voice to die for. In this first video clip Vittorio sings the Celine Dion hit from Titanic. I still love this song so you’re just going to have to suffer!

And to provide a bit of contrast, the next video has him singing Nessun Dorma from the opera Turandot. You’ll recognize it as soon as it begins.

In case you’re wondering, it’s hot and I just don’t have the energy for anything more cerebral.
