I’m sorry for all the American Idol commentary, but….it’s my distraction and source of fun and joy from all the hamster wheel stuff, ya know? I’m just bummed it will all be over next week! But…at least America got it right!! Adam vs Kris as it should be next week. The two best and most original by far.
Oh, and for those Adam haters who say all he does is scream…(really? did you miss Mad World and Tracks of My Tears and Feeling Good and???)…do me a favor and just find one studio version of one of his songs and listen to it. What they sell on itunes is the full length version of their performance songs and they are often quite different from the live versions. I know many who hated Adam’s rendition this week of U2’s One, but I just downloaded the studio version and it is so so wonderful and there is NO screaming! I promise. I’ve been turned on to the ways of buying these songs this season! And I am thrilled that he gets one more week to add to my collection! By the time the season is over I will have a 15 song CD which will help me bide my time until he can release his own original songs. Which I have no doubt he will do whether he wins or not. Heck, I’ll probably snag a few of Kris’ tunes too – definitely getting Heartless because that was brilliant.

Love that line (Tracks of my Tears)
Can’t be all bad if I have some good songs in my head!
Oh – and on a side note I’ll post pictures tomorrow night of my little catcher.
Oh good! Glad to hear it’s Adam vs. Kris. I missed the results show and hadn’t gotten around to looking it up.
My husband said that about Adam and the screaming after he did the Aerosmith song. My argument was that, having seen Aerosmith in concert, isn’t that what they do?
Seriously Robin! Why was Danny’s version of Dream On so bad? Because he *can’t* scream in tune 😉 I do love how he has owned up to that and now calls the song “Scream On”! Yes, when they do rock, screaming is essential. The beauty of Adam and Kris is that they can both do so much more than what you may think their obvious genre is. I think it is going to be a great show next week.
It’s not bad at all if it entertains you and puts those great lyrics in your head!
