  5. This is sweet. I used to see JS all the time at bars and clubs in San Francisco. He always seemed genuinely humble and friendly.

  6. My husband used to see him in the bars when he lived in Paris. Sounds like Jimmy gets around cities and bars!

    This was a lovely video, and he was lovely in it. Made that busker's day.

  7. how far we've come when Jimmy Somerville's falsetto doesn't shock nor does his coming right up to the guy and he doesn't blink, lucky he caught on. Nice Bronski B moment.
