Song Analysis: The Entertainer

This 1965 hit by Tony Clarke concerns a stage actor who recently broke up with his girlfriend and is now so depressed and downcast he feels he "can't go on".

But he's reminded that once one makes a commitment to others, that when others are counting on him, he can't back down on that promise.

A true professional understands that once one assumes a position of either authority or servitude one can't allow their personal issues to interfere with carrying out their prior commitments.

Even in everyday life there are expectations placed on the individual, and one can't just "stop whatever it is they're doing" every time something "comes up" in their life.
