Thank you!! Those are awesome. Especially his robotic opening on Memories. I'm in love with the way he enunciates "iron".

I enjoyed watching that much more than the "official" video for that song, the one with the dancing bellhop and whatnot. Or maybe I just didn't get it.

In other YouTube news- I noticed all the LC-on-Austin City Limits videos were taken down within the last week, due to "copyright violations". :cry:

Hi mnkyface
I have always thought the way he pronounces iron, enunciating the "r", must be a Canadian thing, is it?

I have no idea! I thought it was just part of what he was doing in that ZDF performance... but now I realize he pronounces it the same way on the album track.
