I love the look he gives his imaginary wife in the mid 9 minutes after talking about tattoos on Storm.
I’ve just had a Tim Minchin after noon (amongst a few other greats), but Tim has always resonated well for me. Maybe it’s his stance on politics and religious, maybe it’s just his wit, intelligence, piano playing, acting ability or more. But maybe it’s because he is simply brilliant.
That’s not to say I agree with everything he says (sings), but I respect those opinions, as we all should.
This probably isn’t one of his best, but I didn’t want to bring in anything too controversial. Why I like this song is because it addresses those situations when you’re at a party trying to ignore the local village idiot, or the loud pompous and arrogant know-it-all. And he breaks.
I wish that I was half as articulate.
I could have listed so many others:
- Mitsubishi Colt (the first track of his I ever heard)
(no link since I only wanted to link to his official channel)
- Not Perfect
- Come home (Cardinal Pell)
- Inflatable You
- Angry (Feet)
I have several of his DVD videos and have seen several of his shows (the last of which was probably more than 4 years ago). If you ever get the chance, and you have thick skin and an open mind, I would suggest you see him in concert.
