Please watch the above video, you will not be disappointed. It's Damien Rice and Lisa Hannigan performing 9 Crimes live on The Tonight Show. If I had to use one word to describe this performance it would be 'haunting.'
Damien Rice has always held my mind captive. It's as if his voice demands that I listen to what he's saying, even if it's a song about Eskimos. There's a certain plaintive quality to his voice, a sense of urgency that says "if you don't listen, I just might fade away to nothing." And so I listen, and so should you. He really is a great song writer, and apparently he has great stage presence as well.
