Everyone's favorite Welsh lounge singer: Tom Jones


The video offering from The Jam below is so awful, despite the excellent tune, that I am offering a second tune o' the day. Tom Jones and 'Sex Bomb', the man can really belt it out. Somehow the music is, how do you put it, so awful and schmaltzy but at the same time expertly and skillfully done and extremely entertaining.

Tom Jones is THEEE SEXIEST!

Remember when he covered Prince's song "Kiss" with Art of Noise? Mmm-mmm, but that boy can shake a booty....

He has the strongest voice and really knows how to entertain an audience. I really love his stuff!!! You can also see here he doesn't take himself too seriously, just kinda easygoing.

What's new, Pussycat?

Tom's great! Let's not forget his performance in Mars Attacks.

ACK ACK! great cameo role he had there gordo! Back in the days of the cruiseship.. it seemed that every male singer we brought on board did 1 or 2 of his songs. Some werer horrible.. some, I have to admit had the voice and actions down pat (well down tom actually). on those good ones, we'd get seom staff members or passengers we new were fun to throw thewir room keys at the singer during those songs (without telling the singer it was going to happen).. made for a great bit of levity heheeh
