I have never liked the song Imagine. It irritated me. I didn't like the melody and the words just didn't get to me like most songs do. I know……I know…..crucify me! Everyone likes the song…….it's wonderful….blah blah blah! Lol….actually……when I think of it, I really do think "blah blah blah!"
Then a 17 year old boy from Utah went on national television and sang it. He totally changed the way I think of the song. I love his version of it. I love the way he makes me feel when I hear it. I realize the words are the same, but his version is well……just different…...and appeals to me. David Archuleta is one year older than my son. I can't fathom my son doing what this young man has done in 17 short years. It's beyond belief and just amazing. He has a beautiful voice and will go far. I do wish he had won American Idol, but really, I believe both of those young men won. Simon was right. Both young men are nice, both did an excellent job, and who cares who won?
The most amazing thing about this whole American Idol contest is that there is a 42 year old crackwhore in Utah who now appreciates a song that she really should have appreciated before! Imagine that!!!!!
