By the way, after only hearing fifteen seconds of it, my selection for what will probably be the worst song released this year has to go to Rod Stewart (who has been crapping out those Great American Songbook CD’s about every five weeks) for his cover of the Eagles The Best of My Love . I would have given him a pass if he had covered the Emotions Best of My Love; that would have at least been interesting, but noooo, he covers the Eagles. Rod can take solace in the fact that Josh Fucking Groban has a CD coming out next week so hope springs eternal that it will contain something even more crapulent.
I think that is a pretty safe bet.
