“‘Once more, with feeling'” / Memorable Fancies #1090

     The singer’s sad songs make us all cry. Too honest for commercial entertainment, he tells us, too emotional; no club would book him, no label record his music.

     But he’s singing to us here in the asylum, he says, as an act of charity. That’s what he tells us, anyway, as we sob and cover our ears. Then he’s led back to his room, door locked until next time.
