Hello It's Me

Todd Rundgren is infuriating. One of the most gifted melodists in the history of pop, for some reason Rundgren has spent most of his career running away from his greatest talents. No matter how much experimental music he composed, no matter what outfits and makeup he wore (see below), to me he's at his best at his most naive. Songs don't get more beautiful and sweet than Hello It's Me. I love this version, live on the acoustic piano, despite the awful getup.
