Things Can Only Get Better


Howard Jones came out after Paul Young. He was the only artist who attempted to say "Terima Kasih" (Thank You in Malay) for coming to the concert. OK, he did it with the help of a piece of paper, but still melt lots of Malaysians' hearts out there.


In my opinion, the best vocals of the night belonged to Howard Jones. Powerful yet vunerable at times.


He performed "What Is Love", "Like To Get To Know Well", "No One Is To Blame", "New Song", "Things Can Only Get Better" and "Pearl In The Shell".

I only managed to get a short clip of "What is Love". The security was breathing down my neck. Damn!



My favourite slow song of the night. Heart-breakingly rendered to perfection by the great Mr. Howard Jones. (Insert teardrops here! LOL)

No One Is To Blame

You can look at the menu but you just cant eat
You can feel the cushions but you cant have a seat
You can dip your foot in the pool but you cant have a swim
You can feel the punishment but you cant commit the sin

And you want her and she wants you
We want everyone
And you want her and she wants you
No one, no one, no one ever is to blame

You can build a mansion but you just cant live in it
Youre the fastest runner but youre not allowed to win

Some break the rules
And live to count the cost
The insecurity is the thing that wont get lost

And you want her and she wants you
We want everyone
And you want her and she wants you
No one, no one, no one ever is to blame

You can see the summit but you cant reach it
Its the last piece of the puzzle but you just cant make it fit
Doctor says youre cured but you still feel the pain
Aspirations in the clouds but your hopes go down the drain

And you want her and she wants you
We want everyone
And you want her and she wants you

No one, no one, no one ever is to blame
No one ever is to blame
No one ever is to blame
