In These Shoes?

I saw a video of Cee Lo Green performing "Forget You" at the Grammys with Gwyneth Paltrow (and the Muppets) Cee Lo Green at the Grammys.  It's a fun song (yes, I know this is the "PG" version) and I liked the completely over the top performance.  There have been many comments about Cee Lo's costume (supposedly a homage to Elton John) and the Muppets.  I thought Gwyneth Paltrow did a good job, too.

Perhaps the thing I was most impressed with was Ms. Paltrow's ability to sing and maneuver wearing those sky high heels.  Apparently, she's well known for being a high heel afficionado so she's had some practice, but those are some high heels.

Watching the performance, I was reminded of "In These Shoes?" by Kirsty  MacColl, another fun song (albeit a bit less well known these days then "Forget You").  In These Shoes - Kirsty MacColl

  1. Maneuver - yes, I was astonished that she was able to descend the stairs! And then to be able to get to her feet when draped across the piano!

    "In These Shoes" is a great song! I like both Kirsty MacColl's version, as well as Bette Midler's.
