12 Days of Humperdinck- A Series of Commentary by Engelbert on “The Man I Want To Be”
In the days leading up to Christmas we felt Engelbert Humperdinck fans would enjoy reading track by track commentary by Engelbert on his new album The Man I Want To Be. The series will feature commentary on a different track from the album each day, where Engelbert will tell us how these songs came to be as well as the personal meaning he takes from them. We thank you for being such a wonderful and supportive fan base, and wish you a Happy Holiday Season!
“This is a great song that’s a number one on the album, it’s called “Absolute Beginner”. It was written by Steve Mac, and I have to say it has a great story line. I think that every one of my songs that I record has to have a great story line so people who listen to it can relate to it. Perhaps it’s part of their life, and sometimes people live sort of lives that are complex. When they listen to a song they say “Hey! that’s my sort of life”. It’s like a release valve for them, it’s great to hear, and it gives them satisfaction. Steve Mac came up with this great song, its number one of my album because it has the same effect on me. I’ve been around the world, I’ve done everything, and every time I go home and I’m with my love I seem to think that I haven’t done enough for her. She is the one I can’t do enough for, I feel an absolute beginner with her.”
