  1. Wow, been out of the loop for about a month and i get this! Thank you!

  2. OMG … I won’t get anything done today …. I’ll be watching and listening all day. LOVE these ….. thank you MJ :)

  3. Okay, I have just listened to Soaked and I have to say far and away the BEST performance I have heard from Adam! Perfection……….love the end…kind of chilling…… the sereneness of it. LOVE his talent….man!
    (brought this over from other thread….)

  4. OMG – They’re fabulous! “Soaked” wasn’t really one of my favorites on the album, but his performance of it on Sessions is AMAZING. His voice is so clear and beautiful that I’m just stunned.

  5. I really loved Soaked too. I am glad Adam chose that as one of his songs to do for the AOL session.

  6. I love all the four posted. Adam changed Soaked a bit, making it even better than the record. Some obs

    – like his outfit and the whole look. Where can I get those pants?
    – how many guitars did Monte use in the session? love the glitter one on Fever
    – i miss Lisa

  7. That version of Soaked will be the death of me.

    The camera person really likes Lisa. She did a great job! Monte’s glittery guitar is awesome.

    Once again, Canada is awesome!

  8. wow..soaked is not one of my favorites on the cd, but it sounds great live and a little stripped down…would love to hear him do this acoustic on the VH1 show (I assume he will be…wouldn’t it sound pretty with just piano?)

  9. Okay….and I know I shouldn’t bring this up…but the most disappointing thing about the AMA debacle was that these amazing live performances were not there that night. It was the only time I heard Adam give a shaky performance …just wish it could have been like this! These sessions are so great!

  10. My favorites are Soaked and IIHU. Soaked was pure perfection, his voice was so pure and crystal clear. That song simply gave me chills. When he goes on tour, I will be there to see him just to hear this song live.

  11. I, too, love that version of Soaked!! It was beautiful! I especially like this version of IIHY to the Oprah version (if that is possible). It sounded a lot better…and, is it just me or does Longineau look completely bored out of his mind in these videos???

  12. LOVE this version of Soaked—immaculate.

    And, my gosh Adam looks so skinny.

  13. Am I the only one who tears up when Adam sings …. esp Soaked …. I think part of it is knowing that there are some who hate him so much they won’t even give him credit for his talent. We haven’t come far enough yet for the hate to die :(

  14. Am I the only one who tears up when Adam sings …. esp Soaked ….

    The only times I’ve teared up hearing Adam sing were during “Mad World” on Idol and “Come Home” on YouTube– until today, that is. “Soaked” really, literally left me stunned and teary. Off to listen to it again (and again, and again…).

  15. Love it! It’s strange seeing Adam without an audience. The audience here at home is going wild!

  16. I really liked If I Had You. That and Music Again are the songs I like best on Adam’s CD and I think he could have a smash single with either of them. He was way OTT on Fever with the dancing and jumping around. He still needs to work on the whole adjusting between what is appropriate for a big stage concert and a close up video. Sorry but I don’t see what people like about Soaked. To me Adam has always had trouble bringing out the melody in a song, and since the melody really sucks in Soaked it is even worse.

  17. ahhhhhhhhhh!

    haven’t opened the computer this past day and now there’s so much ADAM!!!!!!

    Haven’t seen the vids yet- but I AM PHYSCED THEY ARE UP!!!!!!

    Off to watch… :-) :-) :-)

  18. It is so hard to believe that I still feel so moved when I see Adam perform. He continues to seem to improve upon perfection which should not be possible. This is the Adam look that I love. I want to throw him to the ground and devour him, leaving nothing but a small puddle of black eyeliner when I am done, Ha! Ha!

  19. Soaked doesn’t have a traditional ‘stick in your head/hook’ melody. I don’t think it’s that type of song. But damn if it doesn’t sing and feel the hell out of it. Gorgeous.

    Didn’t they also do WWFM? sorry if I sound greedy :)

  20. Am I the only one who tears up when Adam sings …. esp Soaked ….

    No, zz, I am in tears also and have never been before, for Soaked. Not since, ‘If I Can’t Have You” during AI. This Soaked performance is beyond amazing. The voice is just so ubelievably perfect.

  21. Wow, I LOVE those versions of If I Had You and Soaked, and I love the silliness of Fever. I love the glittery shooting star sound in Soaked, it’s so beautiful :P. I still think he should show some more life and more emotion. It’s a little weird becau

    I feel like Strut is his weakest song =/.

  22. I loved the disco-electronic shuffle beat thing in Fever, a great arrangement! I would so love to see Fever as a music video.

    Me too. Love the beginning. Don’t know what it’s called but it’s so cool and give a chill.

    “The only times I’ve teared up hearing Adam sing were during “Mad World” on Idol and “Come Home” on YouTube– until today, that is. “Soaked” really, literally left me stunned and teary. Off to listen to it again (and again, and again…).”

    It’s the same for me, Mad World left me stunned. Come Home and Soaked both made me cry. I have listened to Come Home dozens of time and it always affect me. Soaked got to me today, because on the album his voice isn’t as clear and pure as this sessions version. Today that song just struck a emotional cord with me, it was quiet, serene and touching. Adam’s voice should never be overshadowed by the music, he sings songs so clear and precise. Soaked was just “pure perfection”.

  24. Have to say, I also loved Fever (one of my favorites on the album—wish it would be a single), and IIHY was even better than Oprah. Strut (not one of my album favorites, although I like it) works best for me live when it is done very OTT, so I actually liked the version on Ellen better.

    Soaked is just an amazing vocal. It doesn’t have a “radio hook,” but that was never it’s intent. I love how the song is stripped down a bit here and less theatrical. Gorgeous how he changed it up at the end.

  25. He sounds great, he looks great, but I find most of these songs unlistenable. Just not my taste, I guess. I do kind of like If I Had You because it sounds like something Stevie B could have recorded back in the late eighties.

  26. I AM SO THRILLED WITH ALL THE SONGS ADAM PERFORMED ON THE AOL SESSION!!!

    Adam’s ‘AMAZING’ talent comes shinning through these videos!!! “SOAKED” was stunningly beautiful. I just sat at my computer and stared at it for awhile after it was over. IT WAS JUST UNBELIEVEABLE!! I think he needs to sing it on an awards show sometime!!!!!

    Adam and the band (the camera guy sure did love Lisa!) looked great and the songs sounded fantastic and ‘fun’!!

    Adam’s videos are going to make AOL very “popular” today! LOL

  27. I love the upbeat, sexy Adam in “Fever” and “Strut” and these two songs are definitely one of my favorites on the cd and when working out. However, the performance of “Soaked” is pure perfection for me, simply the best. I love how Adam connects with this song emotionally while making it a vocal masterpiece at the same time. “Soaked” is the proof why we all fell in love with Adam at American Idol. He is an incredible singer, a passionate performer and a beautiful soul. The interview is great. Adam is honest, articulate and intelligent and he would never give a superficial answer. What a breath of fresh air he is. I truly admire him as an artist as well as a human being.

  28. Wow – Soaked is not my favorite on the CD but it is a song that really allows his voice to shine!! Just amazin.g acappella Adam – I could listen the that all day long.

    He’s so enjoyable to watch. He gets into his songs….love his little “strut” during Strut – even though it’s just a little walk in a circle, the boy is working it!!

  29. Adam is a genius. He picked the perfect songs to sing for these sessions. “Soaked” is f*****king amazing. “Fever” should be the next single. “Strut” to me is another contender but I loved “IIHY” here better than on Oprah. Adam looks just fabulous. So nice to see him in just a shirt and he is soooo skinny! I hope he doesn’t lose more weight. I loved his little booty wag when he is walking back on “Strut” LOL!

  30. Who can sound that good live? Unbelievable how Adam live can sound better than his CD. His vocals, as Simon once said, are immaculate. Beautiful in every song. And to steal Slash’s words, Adam’s range is effortless. The wait for his sessions were well worth it, as any time Adam performs, he never disappoints.

    Speaking of Adam’s performances, his Canadian concert ticket price of $83-$125, is actually a little less in American dollars.

  31. I flove this!! I really want to see him live in concert, he sounds sooo good!
    Thanks a lot MJ :)

  32. I have to say that I am a little stunned. I didn’t expect him to sound so good. After seeing some of the other performances they had posted on AOL, I was prepared to be disappointed a bit.

  33. SOAKED was incredible. Adam brings it alive, with acappella his quality voice shines.

    Adam seemed a bit mellow/sad today, not the usual glimmer and spark in his eyes — though the performances were great.

    Grey is not Adam’s best color. But maybe I just hate grey. He looks incredible in brown.

  34. How is it even possible that someone can sing more beautifully and perfectly live than on a CD it took months to put together?
    His talent is simply amazing- really stellar vocals.

  35. Adam’s live performance of “Soaked” is literally killing me. I find him incredibly sexy when he just stands there and lets his voice do the job. I personally don’t need anything else (for now). Love the look, and for my personal taste I almost prefer the “less is more” approach in many aspects.

  36. Adam seemed a bit mellow today, not the usual glimmer and spark in his eyes — though the performances were great.

    glad I am not the only one who noticed this….he seemed a bit subdued…it worked perfectly for Soaked, but a little something seemed missing from the other performances. I like strut a lot better on ellen — that is one song that really needs to be OTT (its one of my favorites)

  37. Not my favourite songs, I still don’t like IIHY, though this version was better vocally and in terms of his dancing than on Oprah, and it’s better than it is on the album. But like any of that is hard.
    I liked Strut okay, better than Ellen for me, and some, though not as much silly hand movements or dancing.
    Fever was okay for me, fun, but nothing special.
    Soaked remains disappointing as hell to me. And I realized it’s not Adam’s voice that makes it too “Broadway” it’s the cheesy ass arrangement. When it’s just his voice at the end, it’s lovely. Or just a few instruments at the end, it’s great. The beginning is nice, it’s just when it goes off the rails at like 1:07 with that Barry Manilow-ish/Ready To Take A Chance Again instrumentation that ruins the song. feh.

    I wish he had chosen something like Broken Open, Loaded Smile or Sleepwalker to mix it up with things like Strut and IIHY, instead of Soaked. Of course I wish he hadn’t chosen IIHY at all, but that’s another story.

    But Adam looked great. LOVED the outfit, he should dress like that more often. Liked the hair. His voice was strong, and it’s great to be able to hear the band in a good mix/good sound. Lisa got lots of camera time, and I’m cool with that, because I like her. Monte sounded good as well.

  38. Adam seemed a bit mellow today, not the usual glimmer and spark in his eyes — though the performances were great.

    I liked that he was mellower. I thought it was fine. He was playful still, without being too OTT and cringey.

  39. i know its likely a couple of months away, and assuming he gets another single (hopefully), but do most artists who perform on aol usually perform what might be considered to be a single? bc i really dont want any of these as a single, although they are fantastic songs, just not right for radio

    he sounds better live than on the cd, if thats possible. not many artists can say that!

  40. I just want to share with you my feelings, sometimes I get lost in all statistics and comparisons (sales updates, radio spin etc) that I forget the real reason why I’m here. This AOL presentations remembers me why I’m really here “I love and admire this talent artist”

    I love to see him performing, it makes me happy (like I was a little kid) All of these performances were perfect, I almost cry with “Soaked” (I really don’t know how to express in English what I made me feel)

    Thanks Mj for posting them. Looking forward for all the concerts that Adam has in agenda :)

  41. Love them all. Soaked is UNBELIVEABLE. Has been my favorite on the CD, and this just confirms why.

  42. These performances are superb. The vocals, his movements, the band – and he looks gorgeous. These are (by far) the best of the AOL performances I have watched. And I agree that Soaked is heart-breakingly gorgeous.

    Love, love love him.

  43. These AOL Sessions just make me that much more determined to see him live again. (There’s a little poll on which song was your favorite on the right, if you are into little polls and all.)

    http://music.aol.com/video/whataya-want-from-me-sessions/adam-lambert/bc:66124731001

    (Speaking of little polls, Adam was fan-voted Billboard’s Sexiest man: http://www.billboard.com/features/the-sexiest-people-in-music-poll-results-1004067018.story?tag=hpflash2#/slideshow/298076?decorator=slideshow&confirm=true).

  44. the fever performance is flawless. this has the most potential to be great on the radio-and has the gaga connection-but i doubt pd’s would play it becuz of the pronoun :(

    soaked is amazing. the end.

  45. Adam seemed a bit mellow today, not the usual glimmer and spark in his eyes — though the performances were great.

    Adam is such a showman that it must be a bit of a downer for him not to have that audience in front of him. I often think his performances feed off of the energy from the crowd. That could be part of the “mood” thing some of us are noticing — JMHO

    At any rate, all of these performances are spectacular!
    He is so incredibly adorable…….. ;)

  46. I was wondering where that clip was from on his Oprah interview … I’ve seen everything Adam (thanks to mj). Enjoyed all … my vote is for Soaked!

  47. FYI….the sessions and all portions of the interview are up on the aol site (for some reason i can’t get all of the interview portions on mjs).

  48. I only listened to Fever and Soaked…I LOVED Fever. Soaked was great too, but it seemed like the video didn’t completely buffer, so it was very choppy – but I got the good parts.

    Adam is so amazing – these 2 songs that I listened to sounded better than any of his daytime TV performances. I will listen to the others later.

  49. February 27th can’t get here quick enough. These sessions are unbelievable and just leave me wanting more.

    I’ll admit….Soaked is the one that I usually hit “skip” on while listening to the CD. This performance though…..I’m not a sappy person, but I’ll admit to tearing up during that ending. The emotion that he emits is so real and touching. It was just beautiful. I’m looking at the song in a whole different light now.

    Absolutely loving the way Lisa shines in these sessions. Love her voice, her look, everything. She seems to be MIA right now…I sure hope she returns and hasn’t decided to pass on touring. I love the way her voice blends with Adam’s. This is the first we’ve been able to really hear her and she’s excellent.

    These sessions were definately worth the wait. Unbelievable talent.

  50. I hope you don’t mind if I jump in with a opinion. His vocals are amazing, I am in awe of his talent. Appreciation of music and entertainers is very subjective I know. For me, I was tired of hearing on the radio so many artists with similar sound and to have a male artist like Adam appear almost out of nowhere leaves me STUNNED in a GOOD way. I have never followed AI, I know most all here do, but, Thank You AI for Adam. Back to watching the videos again. Everyone enjoy Valentines Day and thank you for allowing me to post once in awhile.

  51. I hope for the International release (and smash) of Fever then the bounceback to the US without changing anything. Gaga in the video, yes! It’s not an indecent lyric, just a pronoun. Katy Perry kissed a girl ;)

    Yet here we are with no Cumulus add of WWFM, a very tame song and a very conservative radio group. Yet they’ve added every song around it on the chart. hmmf… But I won’t call and complain and hope no one else does either. We wouldn’t want Adam to have to tweet to the fans, lol.

  52. There wouldn’t be a single radio station that would refuse to play it because of the pronoun. In Europe, the whole thought of a song being banned/skipped because it’s about a gay relationship is just ridiculous. Anyone suggesting that dismayed listeners would change the channel or advertisers would pull their adds because of the song would be laughed right out of the room. Could be because of the lack of religious right..

    I would like to move to Europe. I think I would like it there.

  53. I love all these performances. Soaked is beyond amazing! He is so full of emotion when he sings. I love watching him as well as listening to him. Adam, of course, looks beautiful. I think IIHY should be the next single. It’s very radio friendly.

  54. Adam Lambert is the shit, that is all. I don’t watch anything over and over (I am a baaaad fan), but I’ve already watched Fever and IIHY more than once. Must be pretty damn good! He looks really cute too. Just figured I throw that in there as well. Good job Mr. Lambert. I mean he really just can flat out sing.

  55. About Strut: I know many teens and twenties (do they have a one-word name?) love that song; probably their top three songs on Adam’s CD. That was never my top five. However, listening to Adam sing it live (on Ellen and now on AOL) is making it move to my current top five. There are so many good songs on the CD, and Adam makes them sound even better live, that I could say all 13, plus his bonus songs, are in my top five.

    I say teens, but I’ve heard so many stories that kids who are not even in school yet, love Strut and Adam’s other dancey songs. It’s so cute to hear them singing all the words, and even having some favorite phrases.

    Just saw @adamlambert

    http://twitpic.com/12t8vq

    Like ithe outfit, like the shades (finally!) not fond of the hair. His hair is so cute in these clips, wish he would do it more often. boo.
    —————————-
    You know what I find most irresistible? That’s he’s able (and willing) to switch everything up so much. Like you, I’ve got my “favorite” Adam looks, but I appreciate the fact that he keeps his look fresh and moving. It’s easy step out on stage or into the public with the same, safe comfortable look over and over. Adam’s not about that and I’m personally thankful that he’s not.

  57. guys, do you seriously think that they would ban Fever from the radio because of the “he” pronoun? This is beyond ridiculous if it’s true!!!!! I mean they play songs with so much violence in the lyrics, sexuality, what have you, and they would ban it just for this little shit?????
    Adam, bb, you need to come to Europe pronto :)

  58. tiger92,
    I would like to move to Europe. I think I would like it there.

    tiger92, I am sure you would :D
    But you know what, the new generation is going to change all this shit, I truly believe that – so many things have changed, this is the last bastion I think – it will soon pass :D

  59. agathe.hb Maybe? Until they push it as a single, hard to know.

    Songs about threesomes sung by girls are apparently ok, but I don’t know that the US has ever had a hit with a male singing specifically about a male. Even with Melissa Etheridge’s hit songs were gender neutral if I remember correctly. And with the pd’s freaking out on FYE, hard to say what they might do with Fever.

    However if Gaga is in the video maybe and it catches on with her in connection? That might work.

    Violence in songs? The US is immune.

    Truthiness, I think you should replace Simon. You have no issues stating your opinion. lol

    I think the Brazilian interview Adam said they were looking at Fever as a single, I hope they go with it!

  60. Thank you MJ for posting Adam’s sessions. I also went to the Aol site and viewed them and thanked them for doing such a good job. It’s never the same performing without an audience but I feel they did them justice. As always, I appreciate Adam’s articulate, expressive self when interviewed.

  61. People commenting on Adam’s performance… I’m hearing things like, “mellow”, “not the usual glimmer and spark in his eye”, and “moody thing”! WHAT?!!! These videos were Fun and Amazing. Adam and the band looked like they were, in a professional way, having a F#$%ing good time. And Adam’s Voice = PERFECTION!

    I can hear the comments if Adam got super-glammed up and strutted, moved those hips, and wailed his songs, “Well, he was way OT. This is a AOL Session not the concert stage”! LOL

    GLAD TO SEE ADAM CAN’T BE PUT IN A “BOX”!

    Just my opinion, of course.

  62. OMG! I just signed in and see this. I AM IN HEAVEN!! Thank you MJ Sooooooooooo much for posting this. And thank you BeckyMD for giving us the youtube links. You guys are great. I cannot wait for the 27th myself…. sigh. Adam is so beautiful and also a very beautiful soul.

    I am from Europe moved to the US 23 years ago and I have to agree they are way better and open when it comes to radio play. When i go back to Germany on visits and I listen to the radio, I so often get surprised because I am expecting a bleep, but get to hear the whole thing as is. And also the European market is so much more diverse when it comes to music.

  63. Amazing amazing amazing amazing!

    He’s just the best singer out there today, for me.

    And on the shollowest note: I loooove the way his belt is settled across his lower waist….. yummmmmm
    :-)

  64. I am from Europe moved to the US 23 years ago and I have to agree they are way better and open when it comes to radio play.

And also the European market is so much more diverse when it comes to music.

    Adam completely aside.. this makes me sad. Its unfortunate that here in the US we are not exposed to more diverse music. :(

  65. the thing is, although i think fever is the perfect next single, and if he did change the pronoun so radio would play it, would people like perez bash him? seems like a no win sitution :(

  66. I guess they did Strut, IIHY and Fever because they are all potential next singles? Damn, hard to decide, I thought all of them were great. Out of the three I thought Fever needed a tiny little bit of more band work but it’s the song I like most on the CD of the three…

    Soaked was beautiful.

  67. Fever has to be the next single

    I know! My head is about to explode because this song seems like such a hit to me. I would love for everyone out in radioland to hear it. And if Katy Perry can sing “I kissed a girl”, I would think Adam could sing “there he goes, my baby…”

    FEVER for next single!

  68. I think Adam would rather not have Fever as a single before he’d change the pronoun to ‘she’ to get it played on US radio. He said he and Gaga said they liked it the way it was. Now radio or the record company could choose to bleep out the pronoun altogether I suppose, but he did record a very slight ‘gonna give’m (him) every inch of my love’ for the Idol studio of WLL and changed the gender to neutral of the Tracks of My Tears recording and didn’t sing about a girl then so I don’t expect him to go that route.

    I really want Fever next. Make it happen RCA!

  69. I love fever too. Hope it can be next single.

    There is a poll on the aol session. May be they are testing the water. Fever and Soaked are pretty close.

  70. Maybe he can sing; there my baby goes… without mentioning he or she… or it… or…

  71. I love all of Adam’s songs. Mark my words, FEVER is the sleeping Giant

    in his Golden album. 1 out of 10 (10 being the highest) TFM (9) FYE (9)

    WWFM (9 1/2) Fever (68). :)

  72. It’s so wrong that we have to angst about a silly 2 letter pronoun. I actually heard Nine Inch Nails on the radio yesterday screaming they wanted to feel me from the inside. I don’t think I’ve ever heard Closer on the radio before, but there it was. So that’s okay? But Adam can’t say “he”. These PD’s can really just kiss my a$$. Fever needs to be out there…..it’s a kick a$$ song.

  73. I don’t think Fever will, or should be his next single. It’s a fun song, but it doesn’t really have a hook, and isn’t terribly earwormy.

  74. *Sigh* so no chance for Sure Fire Winners to be the next one, huh?

    Well, out of these, I like both IIHY and Fever better than Strut on the album, BUT, when he sings live, Strut sounds better than both of them…

    I really wouldn’t want to be the one who decides about the next single, what a headache, lol…
    I promise to be supportive of anything they choose, though, because they’re all at least solid, even if I prefer some over others.

    And about Soaked- I loved it upon first hearing Matt Bellamy’s version, loved it even more when I heard Adam sing it, and between that Gridlock performance and this AOL one now- I am just totally mesmerized! What an instrument he’s got in that throat!

    I hope these sessions, plus the VH1 gig, expose him to many more people who still haven’t had the pleasure of hearing that voice and seeing that spark… :-)

  75. Yay!!!! Squeeeee!!! I’m thrilled about these but I’m probably already in trouble with my ‘ rents (cuz I JUST woke up) so I’ll watch them l8r tonight or after school( if we ever have it again because we’re gettiing more snow Monday)

  76. It’s a fun song, but it doesn’t really have a hook, and isn’t terribly earwormy.

    really? i think it is one of the hookiest and earwormiest tracks on the cd? and the majority of reviewers have thought so too. and a lot of djs have commented that they liked it. i doubt it will be a single tho because it is too dance clubby/euro/scissor sistersey

  77. Fever is plenty earwormy for me- I wake up with it three mornings out of four.

  78. Unbelievable! It’s like opening gifts. The excitement was building up from one video to another — WWFM to IIHY to Fever to Strut and to Soaked!! OMG..aaahhh, the Soaked finale that left me drained and wanting for more. How can he be this freakin’ awesome?! I love, love everything, his hair, the clothes, the arrangements, the passion, the changes here & there, and the vocals — so music to my ears! The band was great, they’re tight & very polished. I watched other AI’s AOL sessions last night too. Don’t want to name names but I’ve fallen asleep listening to them. It does that to me with songs that kinda sound the same throughout. This is why I like Adam a lot because he never bores me. He’s exciting to watch, sounded effortless and always had something up his sleeves. Aaaaaaaahh, back to watching the videos again. I..will..never..get..things..done..today. Did I say, I love every single one of them?

  79. I flove every song on fye equally(ok maybe broken open and a loaded smile a little less) but I honestly don’t think fever has *any* chance to do well on top 40 radio

  80. When I went to the Oprah taping, they played FYE to get everyone dancing and then they asked what everyone wanted to hear next, and the entire crowd spontaneously yelled “FEVER!!!!’

    I think the crowd response says a lot. There is something about that song that people really like. It’s a huge crowd pleaser!!

    I think its great and very earwormy to me. Maybe its just because you don’t care for it. There are plenty of songs I block from my mind because I don’t like the song.

  82. but I honestly don’t think fever has *any* chance to do well on top 40 radio

    Luv, I agree with you. As much as I love Fever (and Adam always has so much fun performing it), I don’t think it’s a good fit for Top 40 radio either. I do think, however, that it would do great on the dance charts. I really love IIHY for the next single. I also love Sleepwalker. Too bad he can’t release two.

  83. Maybe he can sing; there my baby goes… without mentioning he or she… or it… or…

    Since it’s about threesomes, maybe he could say…

    There they go, my babies walk so slow..LOL! :)

    I don’t think he will change it, nor should he.

  84. Not earwormy?? “Lights on but your moms not home….” is a great earworm. Kids will eat that up. Heck…I love it and I haven’t had to worry about my mom being home for 25 years. :)

  85. Fever is constantly stuck in my head. Total earworm!

    It’s not about threesomes though, well not between three people. Only with the bar and the stars.

    Why is it not Top 40? Gaga does well on top 40 and this sound is similar since she wrote it? Sleepwalker seems to mid-tempo like WWFM. IIHY is dancy like Fever is too.

  86. There they go, my babies walk so slow..LOL! :)

    You might be onto something!

  87. Fever is my favorite song of the album. Other favorites are ”Music Again”, “Pick you up”, ” Sleepwalker” “Broken Open” ahhhhhh I love the whole album :)

  88. I am on the floor. Unbelievable. How can Adam keep getting better and better? I e-mailed Soaked to a friend just to have them hear this vocal. there’s no way to describe it. And yes, I am one of those who tear up with certain songs of hiss…..I Just Love You….now Soaked although that was never one of my favorites. Even For Your Entertainment!!!

    Oh yeah, love his grey outfit!

    I don’t think Soaked would work as a single. Don’t know what radio format it could work on. Never cared for Fever but am liking it more and more. And yup I can hear a crowd shouting “FEVER”!!!!

    Off to listen again.

  89. As a person with a pretty much neutral view of Adam, my opinion is that Strut, Fever and If I Had You all sound pretty much the same and seem like something that should be sung by a 20 year old bimbo. (“If I Had You” is especially bad, lyrically). I’m not sure any of these songs would fare better than FYE on the radio, since they’re all sort of in the same vein.

    I still love his live versions of WWFM and there are a couple of other songs on the CD that I like. Soaked isn’t really my cuppa, but at least it’s not silly and I can appreciate it.

  90. I would love to see “Fever” be the next single. It’s the one song I blast over and over again on my car radio. I love most of the songs on FYE, and my “favorites” switch around a lot depending on my mood, but that’s the one song that I’m always in the mood to hear. I can’t get the chorus out of my head!

  91. Kudos to Adam for doing all 5 songs from his album and not throwing some covers into the mix. I think it is outstanding that, since his album came out, the only cover that he has sung is WLL and that was an encore for Gridlock.

    Adam demonstrates, when he chooses his sets, that for the most part he is very proud of what he and his team have produced. (Now watch him do all AI covers at tonight’s event and I’ll have to eat my words).

  92. For the next singe, I agree: FEVER. It’s a really fun song, and one of my favorites on the album. I don’t understand why people would have a problem with one small word on the lyrics (but I’m not american, so what do I know about US radio?). I know I am completely against changing the lyrics.

    The real problem would be making a music video. Since the song says “there he goes” he would have to have a guy as a romantic interest, and I don’t think the world (and especially America) is ready for a homossexual pop music video. I wouldn’t mind at all.

    But to say that the song should have problems being played on the radio? Thats just crazy to me.

  93. Maybe its just because you don’t care for it. There are plenty of songs I block from my mind because I don’t like the song.

    Nope, I actually like Fever. It’s not my favourite, but I like it a lot. I didn’t like WWFM in the 30 second clip, but couldn’t get it out of my head. That was confirmed for me each time I heard longer clips.

    I despise the song LLWD, and thought it would do well on the radio/sales.

    My liking a song is NOT what determines whether it stays with me. I think this is common, we all have songs we hate, or like commercial jingles, but they stay in our mind. That is an earworm. I wish I could block out songs I didn’t like more successfully than I do. I sometimes find myself humming the Ke$ha song Tik Tok, and I think song is pretty lame as a song, but it’s hummable/earwormy.

  94. “Why is it not Top 40? Gaga does well on top 40 and this sound is similar since she wrote it? Sleepwalker seems to mid-tempo like WWFM. IIHY is dancy like Fever is too.”
    —————————-
    Exactly.

    I’ve always felt if some opportunity developed that allowed GaGa to perform this with him, just prior to him dropping it as a single, it would soar to the top. She has so much credibility, that maybe just that little push from her would get people to give the song a fair shake, which it really deserves.

  95. Gaga and Adam doing Fever live, yes! It does deserve to be heard. I think it will be, probably international next. And I hope and pray it sells a shitload!

  96. I sometimes find myself humming the Ke$ha song Tik Tok, and I think song is pretty lame as a song, but it’s hummable/earwormy.

    Fever sticks with me that way, you know “there he goes, my baby, tic tac toe”, but maybe IIHY does so maybe even more. I really like the verse…

  97. Why is it not Top 40? Gaga does well on top 40 and this sound is similar since she wrote it?

    This is exactly why Adam shouldn’t release Fever as a single. WWFM has an undeniable Pink sound to it. Fever has an undeniable Gaga sound to it. Adam would start to look like a copycat instead of his own artist. I think Music Again would make a good single, but I understand some people feel it isn’t appropriate for radio. How about Strut, didn’t he help write that? It has a radio friendly sound and wouldn’t be another artists leftovers again.

  98. Well, I think I remember the DJs at Z100 (Duran) just gushing over Fever and vocally proclaiming it was hit material. I do think it has the potential to be the biggest single on the album.

  99. i am soo excited..i wish we could have seen him do all the songs on the album lol..i love sleepwalker, i just pretty much love them all.

    he is just perfect, gorgeous, he speaks beautifully and intelligently, he sings beautifully, he moves beautifully.

    he is beautiful!!

  100. I’ll agree with gangreen (lovely name, btw, lol!) on this one!

    Especially after seeing his killer performances with it- I think that out of these three options- Strut might be the best choice.

    Both because there’s an undeniable “rock” element to it, which always brings out the best in Adam IMO, and because it’s his own song (co-written, but still his) and not assoiciated with any other artist (plus think of all the royalties he’ll get if it’s a hit!!).

    I’d still rather have SFW or MA as the next singles, but I guess that’s not going to happen… :-(

  101. This is exactly why Adam shouldn’t release Fever as a single. WWFM has an undeniable Pink sound to it. Fever has an undeniable Gaga sound to it.

    I don’t think Fever sounds very Gaga even though she wrote it. It sounded even less Gaga live. I think the instrumentalization is different and the beat is different from Gagas sound right now.

  102. I have come to find how out of touch I am with what makes a hit song…because I think Music Again has hit written all over it, but from hearing Adam’s interview about it not flying on the radio, I guess I will have to let that one go unfortunately. :(

    To me it is a real shame for a song THAT good to never make it to radio!

  103. “I don’t think Fever sounds very Gaga even though she wrote it. It sounded even less Gaga live. I think the instrumentalization is different and the beat is different from Gagas sound right now.”

    saga- I agree Fever doesn’t sound Gagaish to me either except maybe for the stuttering part, but everything else is different and compounded by Adam’s great vocals. The vocals on this AOL version are just fantastic.

  104. Kanadie- I happen to love MA also and I can’t understand why you wouldn’t want to hear it on the radio because most of what is on Top 40 is just painful to me and this song would be a breath of fresh air.

  105. I wish they performed Pick U Up for this. But they all sound great. A little bt too cleaned up for my taste, though. I like live performance to be live with minimal post lroduction. Oh, well.

  106. First let me say that he sounded absolutely flawless on all these songs and I agree with many who feel he actually sounds better live then some of them do on the album. I am not a fan of Soaked but this AOL version is amazing and the creative way the arrangement that was done here should really have been what was done on the album. The album version almost seems a little boring to me. The AOL version has personality and makes the song catchy. IMHO

    Now I don’t get they remarks that Adam seemed down. To me he wasn’t at all. He may just be getting more use to performing on TV or video then on Stage or getting to know the subtle difference that maybe some are perceiving as him being down. But whoever feels this way that is right for how you are feeling and I am not saying you are wrong just that I don’t get that vibe.

    I also disagree with those who say Fever is not catchy or ear-wormy. Or I really should say that to me Fever is as catchy as you can get. Especially when he start mymymymy Fever Fever mymymymy Fever Fever..Ow!…..oh excuse got caught up!

    Now I must be so old school because I think the best single that would be so Adam and not confuse him with anyone else (because I sort of get what gangreen29 is trying to say and on some level I agree. Fever would be better to be his 4 or 5 single (depending if one considers FYE to be the first single I do).. I know I am optimistic) I think “Sure Fire Winner” should be his next single there is nothing out there like it. It pays homage to that which gave him credibility on Idol and yet is modernized. I can’t get that song out of my head out of any of them. It would be the ultimate Sports song. The new We are the Champion/We will Rock you.IMHO again

    Finally I totally put my vote in for Truthiness to replace Simon…. :-) Someone mentioned it in their post a ways back and I am behind this pick 100%. Like Simon Truthiness is not afraid to voice an opinion and Like Simon I always don’t agree but get where both are coming from.

    One question is anyone can answer. I love seeing Lisa in these AOL Sessions but she has not been around in awhile. Is she still with Adam’s Band. I hope so she brings a good Fung Shui to the band I also think her back up vocals are a great match with Adam and Monte. I also think he needs a female in his band and she is a perfect fit. So please if anyone knows what the deal is on whether she is still with Adam’s band or not. I particularly don’t like the guy they used to replace her on Oprah. Not that I don’t like him as a person I just don’t think he mixes well with the band and he seems to have a different vibe then the rest…if this makes sense to anyone.

    MJ Thanks for posting all of this and SOOOOOO jealous of you that you are going to get to see Adam. Please give us a Recap/Review of the experience.

    Oh a quick thought that possible they maybe offering as singles the songs that other artist have written to help pay for the royalties or use of the songs. Maybe there were some deals that where made that is one reason (not the only) that he had such big names offering to work with or give him there songs. I just found it interesting that the people he loves…. Pink, Gaga, Muse all happen to give him songs of theirs to put on his album. I am not saying they don’t like him and love his voice too but hey money is a great incentive and it happens to make some like you even more…. ;-)

    Oh and on WWFM…. Love the trill and he should always keep it in!!!!! To bad its not on the single version as it would give the song more of an Adam identity and less of Pink.

  107. These videos are soooooo irritating, every time Adam starts to dance or move they take the camera away from him….ughhhhh.

  108. Kudos to Adam for doing all 5 songs from his album and not throwing some covers into the mix. I think it is outstanding that, since his album came out, the only cover that he has sung is WLL and that was an encore for Gridlock.

    I think the purpose of the AOL sessions is to promote the new album. I have watched various artist’s sessions for quite a while now and with the exception of Christmas music, have not seen any covers performed.

    Also, Adam has not done much in the way of performing live so in my mind it makes sense that he would promote his own music. Once he starts a tour he may throw in a few covers depending on how many songs he chooses to sing.

    I don’t think Adam not doing covers at this point is anything exceptional. However, I did enjoy watching these performances.

  109. Kanadie- I happen to love MA also and I can’t understand why you wouldn’t want to hear it on the radio because most of what is on Top 40 is just painful to me and this song would be a breath of fresh air.

    If you reread what I wrote, I said Adam mentioned in his interview with Lindsey Parker, that it would most likely not be released as a single to radio, because that is not what is being played on the radio today. Personally it would be my number 1 pick for a song I would like to hear on the radio. :)

  110. I think I died and went to heaven and met 72 Virgin Adams!!!

    MJ, thank you very much for posting.

    SOAKED is breathtaking. (like it here more than on CD)
    FEVER is fun and addicted. (5 out of 6 friends said it’s their fav.)
    IIHY is irresistible and better than on Oprah
    WWFM is as wonderful as always but I’ve listened to it from Music Video a thousand times already.
    STRUT is my least fav. I don’t know why even though I like No Boundaries (which both have Kara’s fingers on them)

    Greedy – I want more of SLEEPWALKER the way he rocked at Gridlock, MA, and SFW.

    Back to listen again. Homework can wait.

  111. Since Ke$ha and Adam are both with RCA I wonder if they are “sharing” Lisa at this time. Really good musicians, based on some of the back-up bands I’ve been seeing lately, seem to be hard to come by. I just hope that Lisa is back with Adam for the live casino shows….besides “Just Call me Horse” is back on the road with Korn in a few weeks and Adam needs her.

  112. I hope Lisa comes back as well, she adds a nice spice to the band! Zac is going to South America to play with Korn after this NY concert tour so I guess we’ll see soon if she is still with the band.

  113. The real problem would be making a music video. Since the song says “there he goes” he would have to have a guy as a romantic interest, and I don’t think the world (and especially America) is ready for a homossexual pop music video. I wouldn’t mind at all.

    That would be easy to get around, IMO. They could have it be people dancing at a club and Adam singing. The love interest doesn’t have to be his, at all. I’ve seen lots of videos where the singer isn’t the main actor in it.

  114. I’m all for Lisa too!

    She definitely adds to the bands image- she’s really sexy, as are all of them! And to my unproffessional ear, she seems to be a very good musician as well!

  115. if i had my pick for a single in a couple of months after wwfm has peaked, it would be “music again” but since tbpb dont think it would work, i like sleepwalker (definate JT sound) but that might be in the same vein as wwfm, so i want fever! but only if radio would play it:)!

  116. If Fever is going to be a problem on the radio because of a pronoun, what does it say about the djs in our country, and the people in our country?

  117. PattyH..that’s exactly what I thought of as a mv for Fever. Doesn’t have to have anything to do with Adam…just him singing.

    Also, I never associate Fever with GaGA…even on the stuttering part. Don’t know why. Just doesn’t seem like a GaGa song. But of course I thought that about WWFM. Never associate it with Pink. It’s me.

    Can’t wait to hear about the two casino Adam shows… how they compare, etc. Gotta wait awhile yet.

  118. Has is been mentioned that Adam is singing, There SHE goes at the beginning of FEVER??

  119. Has is been mentioned that Adam is singing, There SHE goes at the beginning of FEVER??

    So, its not just me that heard “she”!

  120. Has is been mentioned that Adam is singing, There SHE goes at the beginning of FEVER??

    that’s what I thought I heard!! I thought I was crazy….

  121. The “He/She” has been discussed big time on other sites & the vast majority (including me) are sure it’s “He”.

    If Fever is going to be a problem on the radio because of a pronoun, what does it say about the djs in our country, and the people in our country?

    Nothing good, that’s for sure. I think we had a chance to compare US DJ’s with Canadian DJ’s during Adam’s Canadian promo & the US DJ’s came up short. Too bad.

    And “Fever not being ear-wormy”? Wha??

  122. If Fever is going to be a problem on the radio because of a pronoun, what does it say about the djs in our country, and the people in our country?

    Good question, but we are STILL a homophobe society (no, not everybody). My co-worker thinks “Adam is way to gay”…. he has never even heard him sing or anything, but because he’s gay won’t even make an effort. This guy is also over 50, but I am nearing 50 myself….

  123. I just re-heard “she” on this performance….. maybe I need to wash out my ears. And with age the hearing goes too.. lol
    Definately on the CD he says “he”.

  124. This is exactly why Adam shouldn’t release Fever as a single. WWFM has an undeniable Pink sound to it. Fever has an undeniable Gaga sound to it. Adam would start to look like a copycat instead of his own artist. I think Music Again would make a good single, but I understand some people feel it isn’t appropriate for radio. How about Strut, didn’t he help write that? It has a radio friendly sound and wouldn’t be another artists leftovers again.

    Fever sounds like Gaga to me in some ways but it also has a different sound. In the Lindsay Parker interview, Adam talked about the changes they made to the song.
    Just because Adam didn’t write a song doesn’t mean it won’t be a good choice for the next single. Look at LLWD, it has an undenieble Script sound to it. Jive didn’t even change anything about the song. It is doing well on radio.
    Also, were either one of Cook’s singles written by him? I know Jordin’s or Archie’s weren’t. IMO, RCA should go with what single sounds the most radio friendly.

    ETA: I hear “he”.

  125. It’s definitely “he”, guys ;-)

    And I know I am the lone supporter of this, but I want a Gaga/Adam duet on Fever, because it will BLOW-UP on the charts, and FINALLY establish Adam on radio as a male dance-pop artist. I’m sticking by that idea ;-)

    ETA: Damn, my bad – I thought you guys meant the cd – I was like, what, of course it’s “he”! Lol – but I didn’t get a chance to hear the AOL sessions till now (stupid RL getting in the way), and I do think he says “she” – which sucks, because that makes me think Adam was forced to make that change by TPTB so as not to be too “controversial” :-(

  126. I heard “she”. Now if he did say “She”, it’s very common in the gay community for men to call other men “she”. No biggy. So the word “she” covers male and female….it’s a good thing!

    Well, waiting for the countdown on this post I listened again…This time sounded like “he”…yikes…that’s Adam for ya! makin’ us crazy!

  127. OMG – that Fever is all kinds of amazing goodness! He is just so fun to watch and listen to!

    I need to hear this on the radio, like, yesterday!

  128. going home now. Nice sharing with you all. Hope to see some vids of tonights NYC concert soon. Bye, you’re a great bunch of people on here. Keep it up!

  129. love the way he looks
    love the set
    love his band
    love, love, love him!

  130. Ok, I’m seriously in danger of falling behind on my flailing this weekend! Can’t even make the time to listen to the AOL Sessions right now, and Kradison concert is coming up in less than an hour!!!

    This is turning out to be a 100% Adam-filled weekend. Me likey :-)

  131. I’m on the “he” boat. I loaded the youtube videos to my iPod and with headphones and the better sound, it’s definately “he”.

    I agree with luval though….he, she…makes no difference. I love it when gay guys call each other she. :)

    Mary102….you’re not alone. A GaGa duet at some event would be off the charts. Her on the keys and Adam strutting around her would be epic.

  132. ON the AOL Fever to me it is most Definitely “SHE” but Adam always mixes things up. Remember on WLL everyone wanted to know if it would be Woman or Baby. I don’t think it is all that important. I think he did it on his Album that is the “big cheese” where it really counts He got his point across. Him mixes up pronouns afterward is no biggie and I am GAY. Not that makes my opinion any more relevant then anyone else but from my perspective it doesn’t really bug me in the slightest as long as it doesn’t bother Adam.

    OH and not that it would happen but I would LOVE LOVE to hear Master Plan at one of his singing concerts. (Maybe he will do that at the Glaad Awards) I also would like to hear Down the Rabbit hole. Though both songs are bonus tracks both are so good and deserve to be heard live.

    Does anyone know if Bonus tracks get played at concerts. ( I mean traditional AI stuff) Would it be unheard of if a bonus track got released as single. I think Master Plan has the same Idea but is the cleaner version of Lily Allen’s F**k You! Master Plan could be the anthem of the new Generation!!!!

  133. Maybe he can sing “there he goes” in his MV and Gaga can do a cameo… I mean she has been joking that she is not all female. Or maybe someone else joked about that… hmm.

  134. Ohh, I’m also totally loving the Lisa love going on here :-) It’s great to see more of her, and the harmonizing with Adam sounds fantastic!

  135. Mary102….you’re not alone. A GaGa duet at some event would be off the charts. Her on the keys and Adam strutting around her would be epic.

    Ok call me crazy but I see next years AMA’s closing performance. And if anyone really thinks he will never be invited back again to the AMA. For Ratings they will do almost anything.

  136. I’ve listened several times to Fever. I’m going with “she”.

  137. I hear ‘she”.
    It’s “he” on CD.
    Adam, Adam..what have THEY done to you??

  138. Dhunken, Adam did DTRH on gridlock. Wonder what he’ll do tonight. Master Plan would be awesome, the whole room would sing along.

  139. I listened on different sites and I still hear a SHE., unless hes lisping in to the mike. I think its cute tho, kinda like WLL as was mentioned. Maybe he will add baby in there down the line. EWW that does work tho.

  140. You’re far from crazy dhunken….can you even imagine the number of people flocking to their TV’s to see what Lambert will do “this” time? Add GaGa to the mix and you’ve got history making goods right there.

  141. I hear “He” on this Fever. A stylized “He” both times.

    And really? A Gaga and Adam duet for this? Maybe down the road, once it is the enormous hit he has made it.

    He doesn’t need her coattails at all!

    Someone who shares my thoughts on this possibility…… love it…I hope we are right…it would be awesome and the best part is Adam would make sure he was nothing like he was at this past years performance because that is what everyone will be expecting…..but it will be history making….(to use your words) :-)

  143. I hope he records his next cd “live” because he is such a better live singer… it’s not even close… he’s not the “Adam” that makes him special in the studio.. every… EVERY live performance is unreal and I can’t find A studio song that does that…CRAZY!

  144. As much as I think this would be epicly cool, I can’t see GaGa going for this. I mean unless Adam can pull a MAJOR favor from GaGa, what does she really have to gain by doing this? I don’t think she would be up for it at all.

  145. I definitely hear “He.”

    I would think that if the song were a big hit (and whether her singing a duet with him would help that or not I don’t know), she stands to earn a lot more money because she wrote it. She might be up for that IDK.

    Good Point!

  147. ive listened to the aol fever at least 20 times today and it is definitely “he”

  148. I’ve got the Adam FEVER. Be it he, she, they or it I don’t care as long as I get the fever. :)

  149. every… EVERY live performance is unreal and I can’t find A studio song that does that…CRAZY!

    So true. Hearing these live performances, I’m constantly like – is this even real? How can he sound so perfect all the time!?

    (ok, not ALL the time, but, most of the time definitely ;-)

  150. Not only the money, but GaGa really seems to support the artistic artists like herself. I get the feeling she’s a big fan of Adam’s. Unlike P!nk who shares the same label as Adam and therefore sort of “shared” WWFM with Adam, GaGa has stated that she knew Adam wanted to work with her and she instantly thought of Fever because she knew he could do it right. If the right time and place presented itself, I’m sure she’d agree to it.

  151. Adam Lambert is Walking the runway at DKNY show!
    MJ, can you find pics?
    OMG!!!

    Adam Lambert’s song “WWFM” is #1 on Z100!
    I haven’t listened to the aol sessions yet. when I get home. can’t wait!!!!

  152. Strut is really growing on me. I kind of agree with Gangreen about releasing something that is seen as more of Adam’s own for the next single.

  153. Jeez cher, a little warning next time before you let loose with news like that!! I choked on my drink! We need pics here please!!!! Somebody…anybody??? :)

  154. Just listened to all the AOL Sessions.

    Adam was in great voice and he and the band did a really great job!
    All five songs sounded very good, and Soaked was amazing.

    Wonderful performances over all.
    But I am not surprised and I really expected no less.
    I mean, come on, it’s Adam; of course it is going to be amazing!

  155. But he’s at the concert right now though….did it happen earlier today cher? I don’t see any news about it.

  156. Adam Lambert is Walking the runway at DKNY show!
    MJ, can you find pics?
    OMG!!!

    Wow this got waaay twisted. The PR girl for DKNY is at Naomi Campbell’s Fashion for Relief show that is a benefit for Haiti. She tweeted that she heard from one of the Guardian fashion reporters that Kelly Osbourne and Adam Lambert would be walking in the show, and people wrongly interpreted that as the DKNY show, but she obviously was talking about the show she was AT when in context of her other tweets. She was wrong though. Kelly Osbourne was there, but Adam obviously was not because he is at the concert tonight. I am sorry but there is no way Adam would walk in a DKNY show. These shows are big business for the fashion labels, they aren’t going to do stunt casting when they have the name of Donna Karan on the brand.

  157. I see the arguments for both sides on Fever. The Gaga connection can’t hurt. FYE was a type of song that no male was doing right now on Top 40 and radio hated it. First step is to get the song played. What if TPTB picked Music Again and were right about it not working? He’s probably only going to get 2 more singles and I would have thought Sleepwalker would be one, but now I’m not sure.

    I guess we wait and see! I still see Fever being released internationally at some point. Maybe after FYE.

  158. Thank you gangreen29. I read that it was from someone at DKNY, and not that it was going to be FOR DKNY and yes, that she was wrong.

  159. Wow this got waaay twisted. The PR girl for DKNY is at Naomi Campbell’s Fashion for Relief show that is a benefit for Haiti. She tweeted that she heard from one of the Guardian fashion reporters that Kelly Osbourne and Adam Lambert would be walking in the show, and people wrongly interpreted that as the DKNY show, but she obviously was talking about the show she was AT when in context of her other tweets. She was wrong though. Kelly Osbourne was there, but Adam obviously was not because he is at the concert tonight. I am sorry but there is no way Adam would walk in a DKNY show. These shows are big business for the fashion labels, they aren’t going to do stunt casting when they have the name of Donna Karan on the brand.

    LOL ok.. I read that at AO.. so got all excited. Thanks for clearing it up!

  160. Thanks for the DKNY clarification gangreen. It was on a couple of other fansites and usually they are correct. How about WWFM being #1 on Z100? Is that true? Have to be careful about what I read now. Off to listen to AOL sessions.

  161. Nice.. he added the trill to his WWFM!! Love it!!

    Does anybody have the link to his version of WWFM at Conan Show? I absolutely love the trill there and now I need to listen to it again. And i tried searching youtube and I cannot find the video at all.

  162. lazyc0w, the Conan video has been missing for some time. I tried to find it to show one of my friends a week or so after the show, and it was gone. Too bad I didn’t save it earlier. Had no idea it would walk. Someone may have saved it.

    I’ve been listening to these videos all day and loving every one of them. He/They looked and sounded just perfect.

    I thought earlier that I heard “she” in Fever. After others heard it too, I went back and listened with headphones. I definitely heard “she”. Too bad we don’t have another camera angle to read his lips. I wonder if that was a deliberate hiding of the lips (you know, he likes to shake things up and give us stuff to talk about) or if it was just an unfortunate angle so that we may never KNOW, know.

  163. Ceddies I heard “she” also, I have an excellent sound system and I listened with headphones and it is definitely “she.” I was able to always discern whether he was singing woman or baby in the underwater cell casts with this system even when other posters were positive I was wrong and tweeters said one thing and it was another.

  164. i like strut so much better in performance than the recording. in fact, i think it’s my personal favorite of these excellent sessions.

  165. Wow, these performances are just pure awesome.

    I have to say I’m a bit surprised. Perhaps because I haven’t been paying as much attention to Adam lately, perhaps because I’ve been going through a period of fandom in which I’ve been looking at Adam much more critically, but I’m genuinely a bit shocked to feel this way about an Adam performance again. It’s been a while. A while as in, since the tour.

    And he’s better than he was then. He is doing a truly excellent job finding, and maintaining, the line between boring and emoting too heavily. He’s managing to be charismatic and interesting, but not too over the top. Fever started out a bit iffy, but ended up being the first time in a long time I’ve found Adam really sexy (and he does look nice in these videos! His style is sitting on the line between too glammy and too standard, and his body is looking good). The performances have a sense of fun and spontaneity. And last but not least, Soaked is a gorgeous vocal performance. It reminded me of how much I do like Adam’s voice.

    So all in all, bravo! Very good job.

  166. Not all of the YouTube interviews work, but I’m guessing they’re ol stuff anyhow.I FLOVE everything he said in the ones I saw though !

  167. WWFM-I love monte’s glitter guitar.OMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’ve watched ALL the videos and this is the best wwfm EVER.fu**cling amazing-I srsly alost cried-FLOVE IT!!

  168. fever-um wow that’s all I can say

    Overall-fabulous!! Best hair,best outlfit,best look,best performances!!! I think this is definetly my favorite Adam thing EVER.O.M.A.

  169. I think FEVER IS THE HIT ON THIS ALBUM!!! Come on Adam start putting it out there! It’s a great dance song! I have Adam’s CD FYI and he does say “There he goes”, which I think if he doesn’t want to say “she” he could say “you” just to keep it neutral and not isolate people that may not live his lifestyle and may find it a turn off in the lyrics…that would be in his best interest as far as trying to get a hit and not be controversial, which we know at this point I don’t think he needs again!

  170. My last comment was before I watched Soaked, I believe it could be a hit too! Adam is such a talent!!!

  171. He’s probably only going to get 2 more singles

    He’d be lucky to get even that. From what I remember, both Davids only got two singles in all (Cook had a charity single or something or other, but of real, official singles they got 2).

    I think Adam may get one more single, two’s a stretch. If there’s only one left, I’m for Fever too– he needs to take a risk, stand out. But Sleepwalker is still up and away his best chance at radio.

  172. I don’t know who said it, but I am in complete agreement that “Soaked” is much better here than on the Album. It feels less heavy, and more emotional. His every note is so clear! Ok I feel just a little silly but since others admitted this…Yep…crybaby me!
    I am finding a lot of his songs quite earwormy,Fever,MA,SW,IIHY,MP,
    SOAKED,SFW,TFM, and even my least favorite FYE!
    I also like FEVER for his next drop.I mean it was Gaga’s song so, Hee,hee, he is just being faithful to her lyrics..yes? Maybe He could re-record it so that it is, “Heshe”, covered with a electronic stutter or find someway to get an OK from AOL to use this version that few are agreeing on, if it is “he or she”.

  173. He looks fantastic and the sounds great. Loved Strut the most. Really fun and sexy. My only critism of these sessions is that the camera jerks away from Adam and onto Lisa awkwardly. I also would like to see more interaction with Adam and the other band members. He trys to get them to interact with him but they each seem so distant from eachother. Maybe if they weren’t so physically distant from eachother it would help.

  174. I have read most of the comments and was thrilled to hear so many favorable comments about “Soaked”. I loved Muse’s version and listened to it constantly until Adam’s album came out. Have to admit, I was a little disappointed in his version. I had visions of him doing something similar to Matt’s harmonizing during the instrumental part in the middle and thought the heavy orchestra didn’t do it justice. I still played it to death because it is Adam singing and Matt Bellamy’s voice can’t compare. But the AOL version is so much better than the album! I still wish he would blend his vocals with the instrumental part, but, even without that, this was a much better version. Also, Strut was initially my least favorite, and now it is growing on me. But I love nearly everything on the album so whatever they release as a single next, I am sure I will love also. Too bad it won’t be “Soaked”.

  175. Love these sessions! Adam is awesome.

    Oh, and I definitely hear “he” on Fever. He just puts a bit of a gutteral sound on the “h”.

  176. Zsus:

    In the he/she debate…I heard “ee”

    I heard “Zsus.”

    Hahahahahahahahahahaha!

    You just killed me there, Zsus!!! :-)

    But seriously- I’m quite certain he’s singing “he”.

  177. The battle of the ears rages on. I finally went and plugged in my
    good full ear cd headphones. I listened 3 times. I think he sold out because I clearly hear she…..No rasp,stutter or lisp. He said
    SHE clearly! OK, I listened again x 2…..still SHE!
    I’m disappointed if I’m right. “HE” would have been a evolved decision!!

  178. But but but- justjude- I’m hearing “he”!!! I mean, it’s not a clean “h”, because he does this teeth thing (I don’t even know how to describe it) that he does in many parts of the song- but it doesn’t sound like “she”, imo…

  179. @mr, Its ok really! I love the disagreement. I’ll go back again to listen a couple more times(not a hardship,loving it with any pronoun)!! I’ll try to distinguish the teeth thang over the rest of the lyrics after I Q tip my ears. Yeah it’s late even for me!!!

  180. I already weighed in on this before, but seeing that the debate continues, I’ve listened a couple more times (without, then with headphones), and I still clearly and happily hear “he.” It sounds to me like he’s putting a lot of the phonetic “h” sound into the “h,” which makes it a little fuzzier sounding. Not being a speech pathologist, I’m having difficulty describing how the “h” sounds to me (LOL!), but that’s what my ears are hearing. Hmmm — maybe it did it this way on purpose so people could interpret it however they want so everyone can relate to the song? Just a thought.

  181. Well- with all the Adam-storm that came upon us, I only listened to the AOL sessions once… but they were really good!

    Although after seeing Adam live in front of an audience- nothing seems to compare, does it??? He becomes so alive and sensual and spontaneous and nutty!!!

  182. he,she? What the? We have these beautiful vids of Adam and people are arguing over one word? weird – dont know what you are talking about and who cares. Do these vids air on TV? If so what network or are they only accessible online? Anyhow, these are lovely, thanks for bringing them to us.
