    Nice


    Do we have one for the 90's

    I'm assuming that this decade, this will be a contender:

    I'd rather it be this to be honest, than born this way. Born This Way seems very contrived. Hahahah. icon_razz.gif

    I'm surprised how tired Hold It Against Me already sounds and it's not even been a month since it came out. About the only good part is the bridge/breakdown where Britney isn't singing o_O It's amazingly forgettable.

    Isn't the classic anthem 'I Will Survive'?

    I saw the original production of La Cage. I was sitting in the third balcony, miles away from the stage. Even from that great distance, George Hearn's booming voice filled the theater -- and my soul. I still get goosebumps when he sings the final verse.
