One of the earliest SongsWithoutWhich, Nick Lowe's "Tonight" is a simple, gorgeous love song that says everything a guy has ever needed to say to a girl. You wouldn't catch any of today's pre-fab music stars trying to sing a song this simple, without adding a busload of trills, false vibrato and other such aural gymnastics. A song this simple sorts out who can sing and who can't. Now I'll admit Nick Lowe isn't what you'd call a great singer, but when you're singing your own song, putting your own life up there for general consumption, it's something special.
