Song Lyrics:
Don’t want to be on American Idol
Don’t want to sellout their way for success
Don’t want to sing like Clay Acken
Don’t want to wear a fancy suit or dress

I don’t care about Simon Cowell
What he says has really been often wrong
Someone does a really good performance
He acts like it was a lousy song
And Paula is a eighties has been
Who flirts with all the men who are young

I'd rather be an American Comic
Then try to
sing like a top forty sellout
I'd rather play some Bluegrass or Heavy Metal
I think some songs should be sung with a loud shout

Welcome to music in a vacuum
Telling the consumer what to buy
Using the TV media
To brainwash every girl and guy
But it’s mostly just sappy love songs
No lyrics about what's important

I’d like to see Dylan on Idol
Or Weird Al or
Bruce Springsteen
I think they would have turned down
I think they don’t know what music is keen

Welcome to the new TV show
Telling your kid who can sing
So they give up their desire to be
The next hot rock punk king
But I’d rather have a Ramones album
Then go listen to an Idol song

I'll take care of that tonight along with the rest of my songs that came out over the past several months, and the songs I remember adding that weren't mine during the time (or any others I just happen to have as I'm surfing this site as I often do)

Stavro Arrgolus:

The function is fixed, so the merge is done.

Merges tend to zap mp3s, so this needs a new one.

The merge function is still out. Can't fix this at the moment.

Everything else is working after yesterday's fixes (helping with the fixes is what caused me to forget this for a while), including everything show related, so it's not all bad. He's gorn orff this weekend, so I'll ask him about this when he returns.
