TVD | Angry Old Man | No. 2

Benjamin Franklin was quoted a saying that one of the greatest gifts God gave man was the appreciation and for his or her own voice. I'll go one better and propose that the greater gift is our own voices hung on a song. Or a clever lyric. With a wise twist. Or not. Maybe it's just something sweet. Or dirty. Or sexy. But wherever it resides, it's in a warm bed going toe to toe with tunefulness.

Rule #2: It's the melody, stupid.

the Badfinger track [written by P McCartney for The Magic christian film starring Ringo] is actually called 'Come and get it'

Right you are, Stewart. Must be the 'OLD' in today's header.

That said, I do prefer this cover over the one to the soundtrack...
