On one side of the sincerity meter, you could have Townes Van Zandt, very sincere, and the sincerity is really working. On the other side would be The Magnetic Fields, totally insincere, and the insincerity really works.

although Townes Van Zant did lead a pretty privileged life for a while. He wrote "Waiting around to Die" in the closet of a swanky apartment his parents bought for him and his new wife.

Still a good song though.

you should watch the documentary "Be Here To Love Me" it's pretty insightful and cool.
