This was in the packed house at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center Sunday night, where a crescendo scream indicated the arrival onstage of Julio Iglesias. He wore a dark business suit and looked, characteristically, as if he’d just combed his hair with his fingers.
The crowd was made up of people of all ages, both sexes well represented, but the ladies were dressed to the nines, ready for adventure.
What is it about this man that is so attractive? He is a very talented song stylist, no question about it, although the songs are dressed in electronic hangings of reverb and cute percussion.
He is handsome the way Chevy Chase is handsome: it’s a utilitarian appearance that needs a personality to set it in motion.
No, the attraction is that Julio seems slightly dangerous. He’s got smooth moves and the nerve to use them. The guy your mother warned you against.
