I heard the 1990 Van Morrison/Sir Cliff Richard duet "Whenever God Shines His Light" tonight.

"Van Morrison can make anything sound cool," I said. "Here he's using metaphors with light and dark in reference to God's love and it still sounds pretty cool. The music is pretty crap, though."

I listened to the song a bit more.

"Sir Cliff Richard seems to have the exact opposite gift. This man could make anything sound lame. I mean, he could be talking about riding a motorcycle into a lion's mouth and stabbing his way out with a sword, and I would be like 'This guy's a pussy.'"
