What do you remember about the show?

I think that word might be 'pores'. But I can't seem to find it.

I've been hard-googling this for you since you posted it, but I myself am having a difficult time finding anything that matches closely to it later than the target era. There's Dean Martin and Pet Shop Boys songs that are similar, but with something as striking as 'poison flow[ing] from all his pores', I don't think those fit. Do you remember any other details? Ex:

-male or female singer

-droning voice, singing, speaking the lyrics

-what kind of instrumentation it had — even if it's 'guitar, drums', that might help

I'm caught up in this mystery now, and I want to see it resolved for you!

Older male singer. I can't remember the instrumentation exactly, but it was down-tempo. If there was any sort of rhythm section, it was fairly low-key. I'm pretty sure it was all acoustic, but it's been forever I've been noticing lately that a lot of songs I've always assumed were all acoustic actually had some electronic instruments mixed in, so I really have no idea. I don't think there were very many instruments, though.
