If only some people grasped that when a singer is performing a song, they are performing, interpreting. That it is not REALLY themselves they are singing about. That when they are singing, for example, "My Way," they are not really, truly saying that THEIR own end is actually near, and that they personally are at death's door facing the final curtain. Any more than an actor playing a doctor is actually a freaking doctor...!!
On the other hand...hmmm, maybe Peter Noone actually was saying he was really Henry the VIII.
