My Reaction to This Week's Singing Competition Entry
Matt Calhoun - With Or Without You
There’s no doubt that you can sing Matt, but the total lack of performance here is the big problem. This song is about mourning, longing, loss, despair, etc. Those are big emotions that you can’t really express effectively sat down on your sofa. They also require bigger voice settings as you go higher and the intensity increases. Bono would never give this less than 100% because it’s what the song demands. Have a look at my articles on Active Posture as a starting point.
