Poor Rolando Villazón:

He literally poured his heart out in this recital programme with songs by Schumann, Duparc and Liszt.

Found on a blog just now.


  1. I think the misuse of literally might be my biggest grammar pet peeve.

    I hope there was a doctor standing by, and that Mr. Villazon survived the recital.

  2. My father was an English teacher. You can imagine how he might have reacted to this sort of thing!
