  1. listening to hard day 2008.. and the energy and “angst” he put into singing it makes me think that he probably was just on cruise control when he performed in europe.. there is a significant difference in the energy level with which he sang it compared to other uptempo tracks i viewed from youtube like flawless or i’m your man.. just my thoughts..
