You’re Nobody ‘Till Somebody Loves You

CHEERS to John Mahoney for pulling off an impressive change-of-pace role on ER. Best known as crotchety Martin Crane on Frasier, Mahoney sparkled as a closeted cross-dresser who clashes with his critically ill partner’s family.  The episode concluded with Mahoney in full drag, crooing a heartfelt rendition of “You’re Nobody ‘Till Somebody Loves You.”  Fraiser and Niles would’ve been proud.

Sounds more like a gay man who does drag. 

Of course, Mahoney was one of the more secret gays on Fraiser — everyone knew David Hyde-Pierce was gay, but few knew that macho-playing Mahoney was.

But somehow, I liked the choice of song.
