Really Stupid Stuff

This morning I was listening to CNN radio news on the local radio station. Since much of what passes for news is now in fact entertainment information, it was not surprising when they made a reference to an upcoming television show and passed off to a reporter in Los Angeles.

She (I did not catch her name, sadly) started her report by saying, "Rod Stewart sang, 'Tonight's the Night' and so it is. Tonight is the night for the two David's who will be battling it out on American Idol."

The lyrics of Tonight's the Night to discuss the seduction of ... well, you figure it out:

Stay away from my window
Stay away from my back door too
Disconnect the telephone line
Relax baby and draw that blind

Kick off your shoes and sit right down
Loosen off that pretty French gown
Let me pour you a good long drink
Ooh baby don't you hesitate cause

Tonights the night
It's gonna be alright
Cause I love you girl
Ain't nobody gonna stop us now

C'mon angel my hearts on fire
Don't deny your man's desire
You'd be a fool to stop this tide
Spread your wings and let me come inside

Tonights the night
It's gonna be alright
Cause I love you girl
Ain't nobody gonna stop us now

Don't say a word my virgin child
Just let your inhibitions run wild
The secret is about to unfold
Upstairs before the night's too old

Tonights the night
It's gonna be alright
Cause I love you woman
Ain't nobody gonna stop us now


I cannot believe she used the Rod Stewart song Tonight's the Night to discuss a music competition between the two guys, one of whom is from Salt Lake City and the other of whom is married. What a complete moron this reporter is.

I really wish I was making this up.
