You walk into the party

With all this technology, what if everyone had an entrance song?  What would be yours? 

I'll get back to you with mine.

Your post drew me in as well. Why can't everything ever be like The Voice?

The title of this post refers to a somewhat popular TV show that I didn't want to spell correctly because I am paranoid and sure that they are tracking where their name is used. I am not about to drag this wonderful Music Club blog down by accidentally drawing unwanted attention. You are welcome.
So, if you go to a somewhat popular coffee shop and pickup their little lToones songs redeemer coupon thing you can get 4 songs, 1 by each finalist on the show I mentioned earlier. Now I naively thought that I would perhaps get to choose the song from each finalist. Not the case.  While I would probably have gone for the James Brown tune by the female one instead you get that Police song. I can live with that I suppose. Opera dude is represented by the Simon and Garfunkel song. Personally he bugs me so this is probably the best one since he doesn't fuck it up nearly as bad as he could. (Did I ever tell you about seeing a woman in college sing WORKING FOR THE WEEKEND in an operatic style? I did? So you know it can be bad, right?) The former MM club guy does his blind audition song by Ray TheMontange. Yes everyone loved the disrespectful song and the hit me song but I only liked him because the one judge was so mean to him. For the most part he just kind of bored me. The former backup singer for you-know-who does the P Collins song from the movie with Jeff Bridges. He does have a pretty good voice and I like this song, so based on these 4 performances I would totally let him win.
So if you wanted songs other than these 4 you will have to go somewhere else. I listend and watched so you didn't and don't have to. Again, you are welcome.
