Cindy Buissaillon: “I’m Your Man”, it strikes me, I mean, yes feminists have given you a lot of flack, but to have such a man singing that song, it seems to me, is to be a fortunate woman. This is a woman who is allowed absolute freedom. This is a troubadour of the nineties singing to her, so it strikes me.
Well, I certainly meant it that way, I didn’t write a love song to turn anybody off.
