Eye contact

I’ve got some of my own funny little opinions about some things.   I detest singers who wear sunglasses when they sing; I want to look in their eyes.   I want to know if they really feel what they sing and the eyes can’t lie.

I probably don’t have to mention that the blind get a pass on this, the Stevie Wonders, Ray Charles, Raul Midon etc. and maybe the super famous -I’m not going to be the one to tell Bono to take his glasses off while he’s rocking the O2 arena.

For everyone else?  I want to see them.

That’s one reason I seldom enjoyed performing in the bright sun, because I would have to wear them in order to see, well, anything and I never want them on while I’m singing.
