    Powerful stuff. I am still drying my eyes. Puddles, I don't know if you've done this yet, but I'd like to hear your version of 'The First Time (Ever I Saw Your Face) by Roberta Flack, please.

    Because it's Puddles I will endure the ad, but 5.5 minutes is really pushing the limits of commercialism. As an artist I want Puddles to get paid, but that was an unbearable ad. But I love Puddles anyway! Great cover of cheap trick's "I Want You To Want Me". jj

    If I might be so bold, kind sir, might I suggest that you cover either "Needs", "The World I Know", "How Do You Love", or "Adored" by Collective Soul.
    You are one of the few human beings on this planet that could interpret, manipulate, and emote Ed Roland's voice and make it your own.
    Much love and respect.

    Not the first time I watched this emotional version. Just forgot to share my thoughts coz I jumped from one video to another, of course, of Puddles Pity Party's. This cover's brilliant that only a very talented and great singer could turn a simple and fast song into a classic one ! PUDDLES, you're the BEST !!!

    Hey, Puddles... You stole this song. You legitimately stole this song from Cheap Trick. This is much better than the original, in the same way that Johnny Cash's version of "Hurt" has legitimately taken the authoritative version of that song from Trent Reznor.

    Good job.

    I'm a pretty tough cookie, or at least that's my act... I listen to great professionals singing and it's "yeah... It's ok, I guess"... I found you just two weeks ago... I've listened many times to this and a few other videos of yours--one being your AGT gig... And I literally come apart... Hot tears run down my face and I pray for a better world for our children... Some deep passion comes out of you and crosses time and space to drag it out of me... Even your silence touches a deep part of me... Because we are all in pain... We are all alone, and much of the noise in the world is us pretending... You pierce that noise, and drive a wedge of hope into us all... Keep growing my friend...
