@SarasWhimsy That’s the song my wife walked down the aisle too :-)

I’ve thought about this far more than any adult without singing training/experience/professional interest ever should. It changes from time to time. It was once “Spiderwebs” by No Doubt, and has been “Summertime” by Janis Joplin, “Always” by Bon Jovi, and “Chain of Fools” by Aretha Franklin. I’m so ashamed.

@ubersiren – Nah, don’t be! If I’m running the ol’ iTunes and a song I really, really like comes on, I’ve got the hairbrush in hand and I’m singing along and dancing in the flat. I bet I’d instantly have a song picked for every featured pop artist, though I don’t even watch the damn programme and am too old to be a contestant.

I can’t believe Simon Cowell just got signed to a US$100MM contract! I saw it on one of those news bite segments this morning. Unbelievable.

The scraps from Simon’s plate are probably better than any luxury I’ve ever had. I’d settle for his scraps.

Oh, also, “Mambo Italiano” has crossed my mind.

What goes around – Justin Timberlake. Not because I am such a massive fan but because I believe I could pull of a nice acoustic version of this song :)
