Procrastination

You love two of my most-hated songs - Come Sail Away and Horse with No Name, which might be the best anti-smack ad ever. And that Creed song! Oh my God ... Who are you and what have you done with Allison? I'm not sure we can remain friends after this.

What a Wonderful World makes me cry, too. I used to sing it to Clara Jane when she was itty-bitty, since I didn't know any lullabies.

I almost put Aaron Copeland as one of my composers. After I posted I remembered Tchaikosky. How could I forget the damn cannons?

I didn't even think of Queen when I was fumbling with the '70s supergroup question, even though I've been listening to them lately.

I had to flip a coin between TV Party and Rise Above.

I only like the Creed song for that little guitar riff between verses, I swear! Everyone has their faults!
I have fond memories of singing along to "Come Sail Away" with Matt on our honeymoon. We were in New Mexico and a little giddy from driving.
I also like songs that involve "la la la", hence the Nameles Horse.
