I'm not an American Idol devotee, but I did manage to catch a little of last night's show. The theme? The finalists sang songs from the year of their birth. OUCH! Yet another reminder that I am O-L-D, old! I remember so very well when those songs were new.
I mentioned my old-fogeyness to one of my students, and he asked if I saw David Cook's rendition of Billie Jean. I had missed it, but thanks to YouTube, now I can say I've seen it—and loved it!
(And yes, I understand this interpretation is actually Chris Cornell's.)
