Obviously, I'd just never encountered that usage, and I sing a lot.

And quite frankly, I dislike it, but whatever.

He was obviously using blow to refer to singing, it just sounds weird is all.

Still doesn't make it appear good at all though, as it seems to imply the singer's just a blowhard making noises that are utterly tolerable to listen to the way I interpret it.

That and it's terrible to encourage the way it's used; way too easy to misunderstand others using it that way.

That said, the singing's not bad at all, would have actually preferred traditional instruments behind that voice as it actually sounds good.

8-O I did not mean to hijack the thread with what I thought was a pretty common musical verb. Blow=sing like a champ.

I retract my previous statement and hereby replace it with "My, that gentleman must have the lungs of a sperm whale and the vibrato of a farting hippopotamus, for he doth sing much better than mine ears expected."

No less crude, but at least this one can't be misconstrued.

Slang in one place is pretty routinely met with quizzical stares in another, but that's what you get in a forum that connects the corners of the world, if a sphere can be thought of as having corners. In any case, I really enjoyed the video, it's one of the rare attempts at video game comedy that doesn't rely too much on camp.

Okay, now I want to see Das Rheingold as an NES game.

If someone arranged that as an NES soundtrack I would orgasm a little.
