I feel kind of like the YouTube video equivalent of an archaeological Explorer, having unearthed pure golden Dynamite…..
If you care to study it closely, he opens with a little story about how he became so famous singing this song.
He talks about how fortunately was to get to perform this song with a quarter on stage, very humble, and then he says he somehow 'beat them', as if it was a contest, and not to brag or anything, "but that's what happened"….
THEN, after announcing the song, a trained pianist begins playing the opening strains of the composition, but this guy seems upset, as if the pianist is an amateur… He complains "oh, I didn't know you were going to begin it with that"….
(the correct opening intro)
Then, being the showman that he is, the consummate professional, it turns to the crowd and shrugs his shoulders, as if to say "oh well, the pianist isnt a professional"
And he's so talented, he knows EGG ZACK LEE™ when to 'jump right in there', and make up for the any lack of expertise on the musicians part…
And he doesn't waste any time singing actual VERSES from the song, instead deciding to just keep repeating the CHORUS over and over and over and over, each time using the magical musical formula of raising the chorus by one semitone…
And that body posture is working all true professionals use when singing, but he decides to give the crowd what they want, and he stands up to 'get down and get busy'!!
…. They say always finished babe, and DOES HE EVER !!!
