While he is a decent musician, my offering here is more interesting as a phenomenon. Mike Geier is the lead singer for an Atlanta-based band called "KingSize", apparently because they are big guys. (Mike is 6'8" tall) But he is better known as Puddles the clown and his one-man act as "Puddles Pity Party". He went a few rounds on America's Got Talent but he is mostly an Internet phenomenon. He has a lovely baritone voice which he uses to cover other people's songs. What I find interesting about
him is that through his persona as a depressed, grimacing, and fidgeting clown he tricks young people into listening to songs with some sort of emotional content. His reactions to the music are alternately over-the-top and just-plain-weird and that's where much of his humor comes from, but to "get the joke" so to speak you have to compare his odd body language to the sort of reaction the song ought to evoke. You have to listen.
I posted a link to another of his YouTube videos on another thread recently -- A Johnny Cash Folsom Prison Blues / Tommy by the Who mashup -- but here's a link to his performance of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah at the SF Regency Lodge Ballroom. I think it's his most viewed video. Hallelujah – Puddles Pity Party
