Rufus Wainwright, 'One Man Guy'
Growing up in a family of great musicians, Rufus Wainwright developed a total mastery of his instruments and the lyrical ability to shed light on topics that can be hard to discuss. Rufus's father, Loudon Wainwright III, wrote "One Man Guy" and performed it for his 1986 album of the same name. Rufus's adaptation is a visceral account of solitude: "I'm gonna bathe and shave/And dress myself and eat solo every night/Unplug the phone, sleep alone/Stay away and out of sight," he sings. "These three cubic feet of bone and blood and meat are all I love and know/I'm a one man guy is me."
