My column in this week's issue is one hundred per cent true, despite how much easier things would be for me if it weren't. There are some weird things going on in my head! I'm sure this comes as a surprise to nobody.

The banter at the end of this song gets me every time. And yes, that is Norah Jones on piano and female vocals; this album marked the beginning of her descent into adorable madness, which means I approve of this album immensely. You can imagine how tickled I was to get this album for free when I reviewed it a couple years back, especially since I had no idea what it was when I picked it out in the first place. (That was my usual schtick; I would go in and specifically grab the albums that nobody else wanted, trusted, or could identify.)
