This Christmas wandered I unsure
Into that CD megastore
Among the shelves I the did slope
To that small section labelled "folk".
With Steeleye Span I made my way
Unto the ckeckout for to pay.
I handed my CD at which
A 'cool' young man began his pitch:
Would I like from this display
Christmas songs by Michael Buble
All for two pounds ninety nine-
Special offer for Christmas time.
I'm sure these songs so old and cheesy
Will make your Christmas listening easy.
A strange look came into this young man's eye
When I gave him my reply.
"Would this Blooblay bloke blee my desire
When I'm clutching Maddy Plyor?
One could hardly miss them after all
With a pile of the bloody things nearly three feet tall
Rather than buy this disc compact
The norovirus I'd contract
Such clooners are just not my thing
Neither clave I Criff nor Bing.
So may your Christmas bring you cheer
And hasten in a good New Year
And keep us all from toil and trouble
Torment us not with Michael Blubble;
And keep us free from very ague
Especially from Blublonic plague!

Big Como fan since I was in diapers. He doesn't seem to have been as much played in the modern era as his contemporaries Tony Bennett, Dean Martin and Andy Williams. Most often I hear him when the movie "Odessa File" gets aired. Perry is singing the Christmas song on Jon Voight's car radio. Good song. Good singer. Even Jon is smiling.

No comment on Michael Buble. I have not really been exposed to him. Starbucks' playlists don't have him, although they have many songs that I really don't like, or are overplayed. But that's for another thread.

All these years later, Michael Bublé is still selling records.

Dining out in my area often takes me to Bertucci's, an Italian-cuisine franchise.
The overhead music speakers are always playing singers
with a certain repertoire, the American Songbook standards
that are easy on the ear
and far more difficult to execute than they sound.

That means that Michael Bublé's voice is regularly heard
along with Bobby Darin, Tony Bennett, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra,
Ella Fitzgerald with or without Louis Armstrong
(I think their duets are simply grand),
Rosemary Clooney ... a few voices I don't recognize,
but always recognizable repertoire.

So unless I switch restaurants -- and I really love
a Bertucci's baby arugula salad with grilled chicken --
I have to listen to Michael Bublé whether I want to or not.

It is interesting for me to make a specific comparison:
Michael Bublé and Perry Como.   
Both have voices and repertoire that go down well
with a large group of consumers;
the repertoire is largely if not entirely the same;
both have been wildly successful in the material sense;
and both have got people who sneer at them.

It sets my teeth on edge when people sneer at Perry Como.
You have heard the taunts: he sounds like he is singing in his sleep.
That's the one that drives me nuts.
Actually Perry Como combines two different approaches.

One approach concerns diction, and delivery of a lyric.
This approach absolutely requires a sense of closeness and intimacy,
because the diction is very quiet and subtle.
It is not the declamatory diction of a Wagnerian heldentenor.
Rather, it is one of the hallmarks of the "crooner" genre:
as they used to say of Frank Sinatra,
"he knows how to get in bed with a popular song".
So the consonants are not projected as in the theater, with considerable force;
the consonants are carefully amplified by a microphone
as if the singer were murmuring endearments right into the audience's ear.
Bing Crosby was highly practiced at doing this, although
it took him a while to get it right;
Crosby ultimately did it so well that Perry Como made a role model of him.

Perry Como's other role model was Enrico Caruso. Como used to say
that he listened to Crosby and Caruso and modelled his singing on theirs.
And there is the secret of Perry Como's own style and technique.
By Caruso's technique, I do not mean belting out La Donna è Mobile.
I mean that very physical, athletic approach to supporting the singing voice
with what the teachers like to call "a column of air."
I use the word athletic because, as with a physical sport,
a discipline is required, the sort of discipline and coordination
with which one is rarely born,
that has to be practiced, corrected, refined, and mastered over years of work.
Perry Como's singing combined those intimate, gentle diction manners
with an extremely robust core of vocal sound.
Never mind if his singing puts some people to sleep
because they don't hear him being as expressive as Sinatra.
To sing as Como sang --
listen to the conclusion of "Some Enchanted Evening" with its
rising notes and volume --
you have to work expletive-deleted hard for a long time
to make it sound that easy and available.

Michael Bublé does not have Como's vocal technique.
His technique is different, and what seems more paramount to Bublé
is that the core of his voice has a shiny, polished, clean quality
even under the scrutiny of microphones and amplification.

My background with classical-music singing
predisposes me in favor of Perry Como,
even though his repertoire included the god-awful lyrics and tunes
which were rejected by Sinatra and his rat pack.

I'm not happy with Michael Bublé's
smooth-and-blank-as-a-mirror soundscape of a voice,
but that is a matter of taste;
he too is making something challenging sound very easy
and it does not surprise me that others look up to him.

It is false to say that he has no talent.
His sound is annoying and irritating to me, though, that much is true.

I think maybe you Americans like people who smile a lot - more than we do in England. I remember Berkley had an an English annexe near our college when we were kids and we used to gaze in wonder at the Americans - particularly the girls - keeping up a fixed grin while they were dancing. It was a bit Stepford Wives.

I expect its a cultural thing. Buble is always doing chat shows over here, smirking away for for the Great American Smirk title like his life depended on it.

If we had the 1500 metres Smirking as an event in the Olympics, that guy would win the gold medal. Probably the Marathon Smirk as well.

Buble doesn't strike me as being a dynamic performer, but he certainly is a very good performer. I am sure that I would enjoy a show of his. He is a far better than average interpreter of this music in my opinion, and a very good entertainer. I wouldn't purchase his CD's, but mostly because his music isn't my cuppa. But I would receive one as a gift and I am sure I would enjoy having it around.

All the best,

I have to say that I object to the first message referring to Harry Connick, Jr., as being "dead or at an advanced age." Despite what it says in The Onion about him dying in a piano fire, Harry Connick, Jr., is very much alive. Wikipedia, says he was born in 1967 nineteen years after I was born. Hey, JtS, I'm not all THAT old (and I hadn't realized that Connick was THAT young).

Michael Bublé was born in Canada in 1975. Hey, I've got kids his age. Maybe I'm older than I think. I listened to some of his recordings - "Mack the Knife" and "Cry Me a River," to be specific. They were good recordings, but he's no Bobby Darin or Julie London. I'd say he's on a secondary level, like Connick and perhaps not quite so good.

Good question, John. Why bring up a pop/jazz singer on a folk/blues website to single him out for criticism?

But taking the original question/contention at face value, I would add that Michel Bublé's talent includes not only singing and at least some songwriting but instrumental skill as well. I know that he plays guitar - pretty decently at least. He may also play piano, but I'm not sure of that. He is also an actor. Even if he were only halfway decent at singing, songwriting, acting, and guitar playing, I'd say the total package amounts to a good deal of "talent."

I do not greatly like him, however, he has a distinctive sound edge to his voice, sings on key from what I have heard. Plus he is worth more than all of us here put together, so he can't be all bad.
Plus he is a Canuck. Why anyone would want to start this is beyond me, he is not even remotely Folky. The prior video shows some class to him too.

Calling Michael Buble a Mel Torme tribute act is supposed to be an insult?

Mel Torme was extremely talented, both as a musician and as a songwriter/composer.   Bublé isn't a "tribute act" in the sense of just doing covers of Torme songs, of course. And I'd say that even when he does "cover" the songs of crooners like Sinatra, Dean Martin, Carmichael, etc., he puts a more contemporary stamp on the arrangements.   (Compare Bublé's "Sway," for instance, to Dean Martin's.)
Plus, Mel Torme is no longer adding to his own list of compositions and Bublé is writing some of his own. So I'd say it's more a matter of Bublé carrying on the growth and evolution of the jazz/pop music of the '40s, '50s and '60s. Not quite the same thing as a purely "tribute artist."

I guess I'm very fortunate Don, I love all kinds of music, as long as the performer is good at what he/she is singing/playing. I prefer certain genres to others, but I can enjoy any kind of music. Folk and Americana are my preferences, but I can listen to pretty much anything else.

And I personally enjoy Michael Buble as much as I enjoy any other crooner, and more than some (he can at least sing in tune, which is more than can be said for certain others - one or two of them having almost been elevated to the status of a deity).

I don't get much enjoyment out of listening to Michael Buble, because it's not my kind of music.

However, unlike the OP I recognise that the fact that I don't like a genre doesn't affect the validity of that genre or the talent of it's proponents.

It is a statement about me, not Michael Buble.

It took me over ten years to teach my son that his dislike of a musical genre did not make it (as he was wont to say) Crap!

I don't have any opinion about his talents. he looks good, sings in key, and he knows the words.

Theres just something about the bloke that irritates me.

As George Harrison almost wrote:-

Something in the way he smirks
Annoys me like no other singer.....

Its that smirk.... it turns the subtext of every song into.....my god! I can't wait to get home and kiss myself all over....and I can really get down to it....

Seasons Greetings!
