    Hi Puddles,

    I am not sure how I have never seen any of your work before last week but am I happy to have discovered you. I was binge watching Postmodern Jukebox when your Royals rendition came up and my jaw dropped to the floor. You hadn’t even started singing at that moment! I watched and listend with my mouth open and couldn’t stop smiling at my wife.

    I have been watching everything available that you have done and instead of losing some of the shine, as is usually the case when watching everything someone has done, the shine stayed if not got even bigger. Everything about you makes me happy, the voice, the gestures, the facial expressions, the presence, the way people react to you.

    If I ever visit the US I will make it a priority to see you live at least once, I need to see this diamond in the flesh.

    Much love from the Netherlands,

    Peter

    Saw you debut this one for Asbury Park last night. You redeemed this song so Brilliantly with both your voice and the vid. 30 seconds of “Hello” is such a frikken tease, man! Yer killin’ me! Your show is a wonderful roller coaster of emotion and WTF fun. I’m turning on all my friends. I am loving my “Puddles hangover” today – its a happy haunting. Bless you and yours, Mr. P. Long may you reign.

    How about something from Joy Division? I double dog dare you.

  5. Hi Puddles,

    How about the song “Suffering” by Satchel??

    Thank you!

  6. This is spectacular. Thank you for making my world richer. If I may suggest, please try out a Tom Waits song, you would be great with literally any of them!

  7. William Root

    Please consider Proud Mary by Creedence & covered by Tina Turner. You’d kill this song!

  8. Gina

    Puddles, will you “Send in the Clowns” before “Kathy’s Clown” cheats on her causing his “Tears of Clown” from the smack down she’ll give him? Only you can stop the “Death of a Clown.”

  9. Joseph Falco

    Please do one of the saddest songs of all time “Happy Together” by the Turtles/Flo & Eddie

  10. Steve Smith

    Oh my god! This is just the most heart wrenching thing I’ve heard in a long time. Beautifully sung. May just be the best version of this I have heard. Thank you so much for this…

  11. Scott Johnston

    “Bang Bang” by Nancy Sinatra would be so spookily awesome.

  12. John

    Its always amazing to see an artist take someone else’s huge hit, totally reinterpret it and make you look at that song in an entirely different way. Genius!

    i had about given up contemporary music and performers. They were not relatable….and then along came Puddles, shambling up the aisle. Peering back from the loneliness of a sound stage, a figure of curiosity and pathos, until he begins to sing. And then every vulnerability you’ve ever felt he is laying out for the world to see. And wonder of wonders, they are his vulnerabilities as well. i want to comfort Puddles and be comforted at the same time. Mike Geier has tapped into some deep universal desire. He knows exactly what he is doing and it is filling our hearts. Please Puddles, don’t ever leave us.

    The most obvious choice would be Whiter Shade of Pale

  15. Larry

    Wow! As a fan of Cheap Trick, I think that this is the best cover ever! I understand that six foot eight man in whiteface has a slightly different take on life than I do, but I can’t believe how well it worked.

  16. Tim

    So sorry we missed you in Easton MD last year! Four songs I would love to see you perform,

    Close to you, by the carpenters
    I’m only happy when it rains, by Garbage,
    Highway to Hell, ACDC
    Vincent Black lightning, by richard Thompson.

  17. Paul

    Puddles,

    Please do a cover of Kate Bush’s “This Woman’s Work.”

    I think you would tear a new emotional hole in the universe with your spin on that powerful song!

    Thanks, and keep up the amazing job you’re doing!

  18. Jeff Faulkner

    Puddles really has helped me believe in art again. I wonder what he would do with Atlantic City by Bruce Springsteen or Let Down by Radiohead (my 2 favorite songs).

    Regardless I think Puddles is an amazing artist, of the highest order and he tickles the dadaist fancy like no one has done for me since David Lynch.

    I will just keep watching…

  19. Hi Puddles, I love what you do. It appears I left my request as a comment on a previous fan’s comment. So here is my request in the right place. I’d love to hear you do a song titled, Everybody Knew, With The Small Exception Of Me. I’ve heard Dean Martin do it. I’ve heard the Seldom Scene do it. I’d love to hear what you do with it!

  20. I agree with Paul; “This Woman’s Work” would be awesome. Please also consider REM’s “Everybody Hurts” and the Mark-Almond Band’s “One-Way Sunday”.

  21. david mickelson

    i would love to hear you sing Ed Sheerans – Thinking Out Loud i know it would be freaking amazing

  22. DPA

    Enough covers. Where are your songs?

  23. Richard Hudgins

    My dear Puddles,

    I can think of no one better equipped to perform a personal rendition of “Ol Man River” From “Showboat” by Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein.

    Just as stated in the wiki about this song,.

    “Robeson’s concert renditions of the song shift the portrayal of Joe away from a resigned and sad character who is susceptible to the forces of his world, to one who is timelessly empowered and able to persevere through even the most trying circumstances.”

    From what I have seen of your work, you embody this perspective.

    It’s a mean old lonely world out there, therefore please carry on Sir,
