So, there I was watching American Idol which was extremely marginal, and Rocker Guy Number One got up on stage to sing his number. His selection for the evening was a very familiar song called
Oh, Give me the beat boys, and free my soul,
I wanna get lost in your Rock 'n Roll and drift away...
You mean, it isn't BEACH BOYS?
Now, granted -- in my feeble defense -- I never understood how the song writer managed to equate The Beach Boys with Rock 'n Roll, but who was I to question? And if you think about it, how much sense does it make for a singer to be asking for the BEAT? Do they have no sense of rhythm? This song is in four-four time, and said requested rhythm doesn't get any easier than that, unless you only have 3 fingers.
So now I'll have to recalibrate my brain to the "correct" lyrics. Maybe I'll pretend the singer needs more vitamins and minerals, and is asking for a BEET.
It could happen.
In other totally non-related news, I sure hope the next round of American Idol looks alot more like THIS.
