"And as fans screamed, (David) Cook opened his rock-guy beard mouth to eke out his first horrible song, which they loved: a cover of Lionel Richie's "Hello."
If you don't remember this simpering pop ballad, it meekly goes, "Hello? Is it me you're looking for?"
When it came out in 1984, everyone with decent taste laughed big hearty laughs of humor-horror at how it gave sentimentality a bad name."
I like that song, so according to Mr. Elfman I do not have "decent taste". I am glad someone has pointed that out to me. Just because I don't like something does not make me superior to someone else. I am not familiar with the Josh Groban song he refers to, but the sentence that really got me was this one."Another performer sang the 69-year-old "Over the Rainbow," and a teenage girl in the aisle yelled, "That's my song!"
Imagine that. A teenager actually likes a song her Grandmother probably liked. What is the world coming to. I guess we shouldn't like anything that was done before we were born. Let's see, for me that means no big band music, no Humphrey Bogart movies, the original Three Stooges, anything else before 1956. This man is an elitist. Anything that doesn't meet his lofty standards is pure ****. 7000 people enjoyed the show. One didn't. Do the math.
No baseball card today. I need to get a few more scanned.
