J'taime means I love it.,
This review is from: Very Best Of David Hasselhoff (Audio CD)
When my good friend Ian bought this for me as a joint Birthday & Christmas present, I assumed he was being miserly and sarcastic. It was only after listening to the velvety smooth acoustic wizardry that emanates from the hoffs pores that I realised what a friend he actually was.
From the tragedy that oozes from such sad tones as 'Lonely Is The Night', to the hope of 'The Best Is Yet To Come' to the pure unadulterated rock that is 'J'taime Means I Love You', this album really is the death of all other music. Sinatra, Presley and Lennon would surely have looked to hasselhoff for musical and spiritual guidance had they been fortunate enough to co-exist.
As for his visual prowess, anyone can make a music video relevant to the song they have sung, but it takes a true master of the understanding of dance, to sing 'I Love You' whilst perfectly executing a roundhouse kick, and making it look beautiful.
I experienced the full spectrum of emotion in what was, quite simply, the most beautiful 63 minutes of my life. It made me weep, it made me smile and it made me love.
I divorced my wife and sold everything I had. Sitting alone in my empty bedsit with only the shirt on my back and the Hoff beside me, I was happier than I have ever been before, thanks to one man. One Legend. One Hoff.
