Some random stuff... @ 10:01 pm

bonoffee:
Isn't it awful when you hear a great u2 song being massacred? It happened to me today. I was in town buying a birthday card and it's the sort of shop that plays... you know lift muzak type stuff? Dodgy sort of instrumentals of well-known songs and that sort of thing, really cheesy. Well, there I was, minding my own business and on comes a tune I thought I vaguely knew. I continued browsing and then - some terrible guy in a cheesy, drippy voice starts singing Miss Sarajevo to supermarket background music! Oh my God. I nearly died from either laughing or just sheer disbelief. I mean it was such a random choice of song to start with, and it was DREADFUL. I felt quite ill. It missed out the Pavarotti bit, naturally, and I couldn't escape because I had to buy this card! Seriously... Bloody awful. *shakes head* Poor Bono was done a great disservice.

Oh and the other thing was I said to my mum how good it was to hear the Stones doing albums into their 60s and commented that there's hope for u2. And she said 'well he looks like he's in his 60s already' (she meant Bono, my mother thinks Bono IS u2, I must educate her). Heh. Not a good day for B round my area. ;)

No, lol. I don't even like him and I'd have preferred that! I don't think they're allowed to play actual songs, lmao!

I heard a rap/R&B girls' group covering "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For."

Jesus wept.

Shoot, I was *just* about to comment on how I heard a really terrible cover last night in the mall. Only the chorus is the same though, right? The rest is all really bad lyrics and what-not? I was horrified. :/

Bono only looks that old when he's wearing sunglasses... which is all the time unfortuantely. He looks SO HOT without them, I wish he wouldn't wear them so much. And I am totally heterosexual.

I was shopping for shampoo the other day and the same cheesy horrible voice came singing "with or without you" in some kind of lo-fi rnb crap. I thought I was going to die. maybe it's the same singer ?
