First off, I wanted to apologize for being inattentive to all my readers here at  The Song In My Head.  I have been away since New Years and I have had technical difficulties with the site and the music not playing.  This has all been fixed. I will have all the old songs working soon and I will have all new posts as well! YAY! 

 Anyhoo,

In the fall of 1998 the greatest horror ever known to man fell to earth in the form of a TV show called “total request live”.  Eventually this mindless pop fest for 12 year olds became the king of the castle over at MTV.  I understood the shows appeal but I was completely thrown off guard when a young, fresh, piano master named Rufus Wainwright somehow sneaked his way onto TRL’s poop plate list of artists.  I really wasn’t sad at all when he ended up losing to Britney or Christina or whoever it was, because I knew that he was amazing and that “April Fools” was one of the best pop singles of the year.   “Oh well” I cried, “at least I know better than 12 year olds”.  My musical love affair with Rufus has only grown over the years although I tend to always fall back on his singles and more straightforward “pop” tunes.  

 Here are some of my personal favorites of Wainwright’s collection:  

April Fools California Going To A Town  One Man Guy

My all-time favorite RW songs is “My Phone’s On Vibrate For You” and “Go Or Go Ahead” & “Beauty Mark”. He’s truly a great American song writer.
He makes me cry too!
See you soon Johnny.

Johnny, how funny, I love him too. Fell in love with him when I first heard him on the Shrek soundtrack! Beautiful!
