Talking to my (girl)friends whom I force Sam on at every opportunity (it's hard keeping this much awesomness all to myself), they all eventually comment on his treatment of women in his music. "He gets us." "Oooh, it's like he *knows*..." "He understands what it means to be a woman" "Are you sure he's a feller?"
I see it a little differently. What I always hear in his music is a respect for (and awe of) the mystery, whether that mystery is a woman, a friendship, or the world at large.
What do you think? Is there a particular song that makes you feel like Sam's seen ya nekkid?
