You know, he thinks, he's got it so good

Don't read this. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. No you've started reading this don't stop this is so freaky. But if you read this and ignore it you will have very bad luck. Put this on 15 songs in 144 mins. When you are done press space bar and your crushes name will appear in big letters on the screen this so freaky it actually works

In return, the county painted all the houses/apart m e n t s pink, in honor of him!�� A friend of mine worked up there (somewhere in IN.) He came back talkin about all the pink houses/apart m e n t s ! LOL

please see below first (sorry about that, but at this point, i think you really owe it to me to give it a try). ok, where was i...but with every new song i started to really get into him (i must admit his being on charlie rose, and his extraordinar y model wife, may have played a part in my conversion). but i degress...ag a i n . let's leave it at this: now, his songs impress me a lot. a new for me is: check it out. really. just check it out. so, go ahead, check it out. you tube, $1.29 on itunes.

i know i've commented on johnny m before, but not on this song, and it gives me a chance to to riff on him some more. and , as you know, i never pass up a chance to riff if i can help it. he started out as john cougar, then john cougar mellancamp, and then plain old john mellencamp. (i think there's a personal journey in there somewhere that might be interesting) . in any case, at first he was called a springsteen clone, and i ignored him. but with every new song...(see above)
