I absolutely LOVE the song "October"..

..so much so when I sing it from the top of my lungs(THE ENDING PART..'And On and on..') my two little girls remarked the other day-"Oh Daddy you sound just like Bono!"
It has gotten so bad when I was at a red light stuck in traffic and friend/co-worker had pulled up along side of my Grand Cherokee and was amusingly watching my display of 'diamondantics' laughing his way back to the dealership.

OK that's all for right now.
Has that ever happened to anybody else-getting caught 'bellowing' out a U2 song in traffic?

Good bye-
Late..
Diamond

I haven't, actually. I do love October, though. I must say that is a very interesting choice for bellowing out at the top of your lungs.

Yesterday when I went to the dentist the radio in the office started playing I Still Haven't Found...and then I went to the music store and they were playing Achtung Baby to test one of the stereos. Zoo Station when I came in, One when I went out. So I was kind of singing One under my breath when I left, but I don't usually get any louder than that, unless I'm all alone

Great song!

My roommate came home yesterday and I was rocking out to Zoo Station. She thinks I'm a weirdo--but I already know that.

Thanks Ivan, more lemons!!!

I hope my kids don't hate me, if/when I do have them. Son number one will be named James Dean, son number 2 will be named after Neil Young. They will probably hate me.

I don't know how to drive, but I do listen to my walkman on the way to work, and I tend to get kind of carried away, madly gesticulating, grinning and mouthing all the words (I'd never subject ANYONE to my voice, unless someone were to ply me with alcohol and coerce me in a Karaoke room).

The other day I got caught in the act by a guy with 3 Rottweillers who were growling at me!

Cute story, db9! It's sweet that your daughters think you sound like Bono. And yes, October is a great song.

Yesterday I was driving down the road belting out Streets, all my windows were down, and everybody that was walking/jogging down the road turned their head and looked at me like I was some sort of an idiot. It was kinda funny.

DB9, I love October, and that's a great story
