I love your burnin' thing...

So, I'm an Idol-watcher and I was a little dumbfounded...maybe that's a good word...with one of the performances.

I love me some Johnny Cash...and I love me some sitar...and I love me some Adam Lambert. But, mixing those three things together threw me for a bit of a loop. I had to watch the performance a few times before I knew if I liked it, or not...and it turns out, I kinda did.

Well, so did The One Who Gets Away With Murder. He's a big Johnny Cash fan...he loves all of his songs. So, the sound of Johnny's lyrics lured TOWGAWM to the TV set. When I started the Tivo recording for the 3rd time, the boy started singing along...



Except, The One Who Gets Away With Murder wasn't singing about love because I heard him say this:

"I love your burning thing...it burns, like a fiery ring!"

I think he was singing about gonorrhea!!

Girl, the key words in your posts are what draws all those wierdos to your blog!! Ha, now people will see your post while trying to find out about the clap!!

Ha, I just don't even know what to say about that. I understand why TOWGAWM has been named as such. How can you get too upset with someone who's so innocent!?

Over from SITS. What a hoot.
We watched AI last night as well and totally agree BIZARRE!
And I love the STD analogy. Tooo funny!

Personally I enjoyed TOWGAWM's rendition much more. I really like Adam but that was a little too Creepy Creeperton for me. I felt a little dirty after watching him, like he had given me gonnereah with his eyes. EEEK, it burns! haha

That dude is weird.

Hey - guess what? I sang that song while IN LABOR with Cara...actually while pushing her out because they kept saying "Push through the Fire!" And I started singing. It was a natural labor. I was high on pain and endorphins, man.

When I was in labor with Sienna I sang the counting song from Sesame Street to count through contractions. You know...1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10 .. 11-Tweeeeeeeeeelve. That one.

I loved TOWGAWM's rendition, tho..he's cute.

The One Who Gets Away With Murder cracks me up! And in these tough economic times, laughter is the best medicine ;)

I was a bit thrown by this performance, tho in retrospect this guy is a pretty good singer, selfindulgent, but good.

Hilarious!!! I felt the same, I just wasn't feeling his performance, and I LOVE Adam, but I LOVE Danny even more and even the beginning of his song fell flat for me.

American Idol, yet another thing we have in common.
