I made this item a separate comment because your software freaks out if I put more than one URL in a comment.

But, I got to say it anyway.

I hated John Denver and I clapped and cheered when his airplane crashed. I hated "Country Roads (Take Me Home, West Virginia)" with a passion, but (there are a lot of buts in this comment) there is fabulous version by Jamacian group Toots & the Maytals who did a reggae version:

Almost heaven, West Jamaica
True ridge mountains, shining down the river
All my friends there, older than those ridge
Younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze

Country roads take me home
To the place I belong
West Jamaica, my ol' momma
Take me home country roads

It is a terrific song:

The real lyrics to Mannfred Mann's "Blinded By The Might" which was a scathing criticism of Obama's apology tour, BTW

Blinded by the might
BOWS DOWN like a douche
Another royal in his sight

Okay, I completely lost it at "tied to machines that make me pee". I desperately needed some 13yo humor tonight.. Thanks so much for this!
