Prince

My new music related obsession

http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/features/desert-island-discs

The archives go back to the '40s! Every episode makes you fall in love with the castaway! I listened to Michael Caine today - he loves chill music!

I know it's just a crass, blatantly commercial, made up holiday, but...

I LOVE YOU, MUSIC CLUB! HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

Who's your fictional character crush?

Reading the article, I squealed with glee that one of the writers picked my avatar's counterpart as her fictional character crush - Robin Hood the foxy fox from the Disney movie! He's my number two. My number one? Mr. Spock.

JIM!!!!!

I hope the Russians love their children too. Ugh.

Frankly, the Sting picture makes me want to just quit this whole club.

Instead, I am officially announcing a New Project:

A Music Clubber Looks At 50

or

Pat's Top Fifty Ever

or

I Am So Stupid For Trying This.

Coming sometime this spring. Assume later rather than sooner.

Music Club #57(?!) The "using only one line of lyrics, what's your favorite song” Theme

So not to over-think it, because it is still early and all, but are you thinking of the line as a stand alone line or is it within the conte...
