The Trump era will surely produce a strong, outspoken musical response, perhaps from newer artists who have yet to be heard on the national stage, but Streisand here fails to break new ground.
In fact, Streisand confessed, she had stopped performing for 27 years because her anxiety was too intense. Streisand claims she doesn't think she's a big deal, but she also has to admit that she's enjoyed the perks of it all the same, like the time she dialed up Steve Jobs to complain about a computing glitch or when she asked Tim Cook to personally ensure Siri pronounced her name correctly.
"I've got to be honest, though, if this is how I go out, I'll take it", Corden quipped.
"Yeah, a moment", she laughed. She expressed ire over it during her 2016 tour, telling the crowd of thousands: "It's Streisand, soft, like "sand". I get scared, I just don't want to disappoint people", Streisand admits.
Later, Streisand recounted the chestnut about how she hailed the ultimate Apple customer support - as in company chieftan Tim Cook himself - when she anxious that Siri was teaching people to mispronounce her last name. "Every song relates to something about what's going on with these hard times".
Walls features fresh interpretations of "What the World Needs Now" and her signature, "Happy Days Are Here Again", alongside a duet of "Imagine"/"What a Wonderful World".
