Some random stuff...

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. ;)
