    Civic, Civic, Civic. Have you never learned that on FSU, if ye ask, ye shall receive. Pat Boone improves Judas Priest.

    I think I need to add this to my Hell's Playlist. I made one for a friend who decided we should compete to make the worst imaginable playlist and torture each other on a drive from LA to Las Vegas.

    There were only two rules: (1) All the songs had to be available on iTunes and (2) No Phil Collins.

    My playlist had:

    John Gora: Karma Chameleon Polka
    Gheorge Zamfir: Can't Fight the Moonlight (on pan flute)
    Pat Boone: We are Family
    Leonard Nimoy: The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins
    Rednex: Cotton Eyed Jo
    William Shatner: Mr. Tambourine Man
    Pat Boone: I'm Proud to Be an American
    Tom Jones: Lady Madonna
    Veggie Tales: Proud Mary
    Jessica Simpson: These Boots are Made for Walking
    Toby Keith: Courtesy of the Red, White & Blue
    And some horrid techno version of Against All Odds (we decided that it skirted the rules, but was okay)

    Needless to say, I won in a landslide.

    I wanted to add Phyllis Diller's cover of Satisfaction, but it wasn't on iTunes.

    Why yes, manhn. This hidden track is so hidden that it's invisible! Get the swangin' swingers remix if you can find it.
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    I couldn't disagree more - my cat could improve upon that dreck of a song.

    While I'm absolutely *no* fan of Michael Bolton's, Pride is pretty much the worst track on The Unforgettable Fire. I was an avid fan of U2 in their early days of Boy, War, and Under A Blood Red Sky, but that album was the end of my fandom of the band and their music.

    Beginning with The Unforgettable Fire (save for the title track), every release of theirs since is utter shite - U2 has without a doubt one of the absolute worst rhythm sections in rock music, and Bono's obnoxious, greasy, pompous, self-important attitude is a total turn-off.

    Funny, it looks like it's no longer there. It was, because I still have the download. It's from "Rockin' Tom Jones." I wonder if they removed it when iTunes got the rights to sell the Beatles' music.

    So...if I am hearing you correctly, it's a thumbs down?

    OMG...I have to admit to liking this too (but it's the only one, I swear!!!)

    I'm simply saying that just about anything done to Pride would likely be an improvement over the original, of which U2's is a POS.

    Plus he covers "Hallelulah", two songs that no one has done a very good job on until this time.


    This thread is a joke, right?

    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    Actually, if this finally kills "Hallelujah" and no one ever sings it again, I'll be a happy, happy person. It's already schlock.

    (And anyone who has not figured out by now that PeterG is yanking everyone's chain, get your sarcasm/sardonic meters checked... )

    Q.F.T. He has a horrible voice, always sounded like he was coming off a bad case of laryngitis.

    I had heard that Michelle Kwan will be coming out of semi-retirement so she can skate to Mikey's abridged version of Fields of Gold

    Maybe he'll cover "Unforgetable" and edit out Nat King Cole, so he can duet with Natalie?
