I Love Being Right
Got the new Adam Lambert album and I'm liking what I hear. Up-bup: don't argue, hear me out. Is it overproduced? You bet*. Is it "Pop"**? Yes, it is. Should he have thrown in a remake or two? You got it. Quirky/different/strange? Check. That said, I think it's fantastic. It's still Adam Lambert. It's original and has several really good songs. I predict Sure Fire Winners is playing when Derek Jeter comes up to bat next fall as the Yankees win the second of six straight World Championships. Give it a listen and tell me it's not awesome!
How It Went Down
My buddy, Kingston Steve, says this is how it went down. A big fight, followed by Tiger storming out the door. He gets in his car, she goes after him with a nine-iron. He takes off, she smashes the windshield. He spins out of control, hits a fire hydrant and tree. Now furious, he gets out of the car and she smacks him good with the nine-iron. Kingston Steve asked me what about that is not believable. I gotta say - nothing. Tiger: tell us what happened, even if it's a made up story. Just make it believable.
*Seriously now - here's what you need to do in the studio: Plug in a microphone and give it to him to sing. There. That's all you have to do. The boys got the chops to sing - he's already proved that on American Idol.
**Almost my least favorite type of music.
