I believe he may be telling a serving wench not to put on the red dress tonight, but that's really just a guess

Wondering what Sting is up to lately?

I like early music, but this strikes me as silly. Is it just me?

(I can't understand a word he's singing, BTW, but the speakers on my PC are not great.)

Looks like the stream of this show will be up till the weekend, so if you're a lute aficionado--or a fan of absurdist comedy--move quickly.

Gotta be better than Elvis Costello with the Julliard Quartet. Or the London Symphony Orchestra playing the Rolling Stones. Or Jerry Lee Lewis singing Nessun Dorma.

Did he really???

I liked it when Aretha sang it on the Grammys a few years back. I think Pavoratti was sick or something, and they asked her at the last minute. Not technically perfect--but, boy, she sold it anyway.

As far as I know, it's one of the few things ol' Jerry Lee hasn't gotten to yet. Someone on the 50s music usenet board posted it as an example of something that would be a waste of time. But if he ever did, I'd want to hear it.
