Monday, May 29th, 2006

I was presented with this question several times tonight: Q: Where did these top 100s come from? A; The answer is different for all three.

First off, I’m always amazed at how confidently original she sounds. The night she got harassed for sounding like Whitney Houston, I had to ask Sara who sang that […]
