Mad dogs and Englishmen

I am listening to a recording of 1980s acts doing Noel Coward songs.  Somebody I'd never heard of called, I think, "Space", did "Mad Dogs and Englishmen". 

It wouldn't be bad, except that the singer can't stay on pitch.  He can't get the low notes, he muffs the higher notes.  He needed to actually work on this song, because it's in a more demanding style than most rock music, and either he didn't or he's a much less capable singer than they probably deserve. 

Yeah, education ruins your ability to enjoy things.
