Saxophone solo.

So when I saw The Slackers a few months ago with Brad, they played this cover song.
And I really really liked it, but sadly I had no idea what it was called, who originally sang it, or what any of the lyrics were.

BUT THEN...!

Magically, on one of the last two episodes of American Idol (I forget which one)
a fellow sang this song for his audition.

And what was the song????
Cupid by Sam Cooke.

It is so wonderful. The vocal lines are killer.
And the lyrics, though schmaltzy, are in fact very touching and quite fitting for this time of year.

They are:

Now I don't mean to bother you
But I'm in distress
There's danger of me losing
All of my happiness
For I love a girl who doesn't know I exist
And this you can fix

So Cupid, draw back your bow
And let your arrow go
Straight to my lover's heart
For me (and nobody but me)

Cupid, please hear my cry
And let your arrow fly
Straight to my lover's heart
For me

Now Cupid if your arrow makes
A love strong for me
I promise I will love her
Until eternity
I know between the two of us
Her heart we can steal
Help me if you will

So Cupid, draw back your bow
And let your arrow go
Straight to my lover's heart
For me (and nobody but me)

Cupid, please hear my cry
And let your arrow fly
Straight to my lover's heart
For me


I don't know.
I like it a lot a lot.
There is just something about it.
It's nice.


Also:
My dad's birthday is on Sunday, but we are celebrating it tomorrow.
Exciting!
I just found out that the Pro Bowl is tomorrow.
Double Exciting!!
The Grammys are on Sunday!
TrIpLe ExCiTiNg!!!

-(and)-

Aaron, Cody, and Vince totally live in the real house on Ash Tree Lane.
Scary! :-0 (This face is definitely screaming.)


That is all.
Carry on.
