My wife and I were watching American Idol and we found out David Cook’s crazy performance of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” is actually a mimicked performance of Chris Cornell’s crazy performance of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean”. It was quite a letdown to find out that Cook just ripped off Cornell. Oh well.
Andrea couldn’t remember who Chris Cornell was and I told her he was the lead singer of Soundgarden. Andrea had a hard time remembering that band. I said, “Black Hole Sun?” and I sang a few licks from the song which didn’t help at all. So i cracked open iTunes and did a search for “Black Hole Sun”. Andrea pointed out that some dude named Paul Anka did a version of the song. Andrea was quite surprised. I never heard of the guy. We listened to the sample and it’s completely hilarious. I recommend you open your iTunes right now and take in the song.
