Another les­son ’bout a naïve fool who came to Babylon


  • “Guitars, Cadillacs” (Dwight Yoakam)
  • “Don’t Cry Out Loud” (Melissa Manchester version)
  • “The Wild Boys” (Duran Duran)
The first song was sup­posed to be Rush’s “Limelight” but sadly it kept skip­ping so I started off with my #2 pick. This was sup­posed to be a “gross-​out” com­pe­ti­tion (“The Wild Boys” being my entry — don’t get me wrong, I love Duran Duran but I frig­ging hate “The Wild Boys”) but I felt over­whelmed by the choices by my brother’s girl­friend (a bril­liant per­for­mance of “Waiting for a Star to Fall” com­plete with exten­sive inter­pre­tive danc­ing) and my brother, who did “I’ve Got the Music in Me” and com­pletely put every­one to shame in the his­tory of the world, ever, from the past and now into the future. It was that unbe­liev­able.
Of course my brother eas­ily took the gross-​out title with his ren­di­tion of “Here Comes the Hotstepper,” which was, quite sim­ply, wrong and uncalled for.
