Have you all seen this clown?
(Couldn't resist). Fellow Variety Playhouse performer Kingsized has a stage persona of Puddles, the sad, singing clown. He has a great youtube channel with a variety of work. Giligan's island to Stairway to Heaven is a fave. He also does DDIO.
I like the treatment on the chorus as it's better suited to my maturing baritone. I USED to be able to hit the high notes, and am constantly amazed at Neil Finn's capability! AND songwriting craft.
