I'm currently feelin: satisfied satisfied

Covers of U2 songs rarely sit well with me...I generally just don't like hearing anyone else do U2 except for U2.

But tonight...as my Christmas day came to a close...on the local TV special The Panel - Christmas Wrap (live panel talk show)...Australian Idol final 12ist Robert Mills, aka "Milsy", aka "I dated Paris Hilton one night", did an awesome acoustic rendition (with an acoustic guitar, 12string acoustic guitar and piano) of Where The Streets Have No Name! Performances like that can make me something of a fan of someone I'm not a fan of. heh.

Great way to end the day...mixing one of my favourite songs with my favourite musical style (live acoustic rock).

I can sleep well now.

Merry Christmas. Night.

Opposite end of the spectrum was when Canadian Idol winner, Ryan Malcom butchered a rendition of "One" during the contest.

*Sigh*....I coulda killed him then. I'm glad he won, if Billy couldn't have, but I still hate him for killing that song.

He WAS good. I was thinking, "oh no" when I heard the music, but he pulled it off. I kind of want him to win.
