The Earworm of 2010.
Posted on December 22nd, 2010 @ 11:43 pm

Before this song blew up to what is is today, my dad and I heard it on the radio one day. I went to turn it up; he assumed I was going to change the station and yelled at me. I had to explain to him that I like Train as well.

I saw them in 2004 down at Ft. Stewart. My mother got my brother a pair of tickets for his high school graduation since he likes them as well. My parents were in El Paso at the time. Had they not been there, I think my dad would have taken him. It was a very enjoyable show. Matthew and I got as close to the stage as we could. I’m glad I was able to see them live.

I always got “South Pacific” and “Walter Winchell” mixed up.

However, I do know the difference between Bardot, as in Brigitte,  and Bob Hope. Joey always sung it that way and it drove me nuts.

I think of the singles from this era, I identify the most with is “I Go To Extremes.”  Describes my life.
