THE SORROW AT THE HEART OF THE WORLD 1 A!

Only the Blues could produce a song with this title that wouldn’t either be ironic or heavy metal. Check it out:

ETTA JAMES sings “I’d Rather Go Blind”.

UPDATE: Here’s a contemporary YouTube version of “I’d Rather Go Blind” by a singer from far distant Sarajevo who looks like a star from a 1940s French film.

The title has the potential for scathing irony, if one wants to pan the performance, by commenting something about rather going deaf.

I always thought Paul McCartney’s song “So Bad” was just setting itself up for sarcastic reviews.

Quite true, but remember
De gustibus non disputandum est.
