Why do radio DJs insist on continually playing that horrible song by Melissa Etheridge called "I'm the Only One"? (The chorus goes "I'm the only one who'll walk across the fire for you" etc etc.) For some reason the tone of the vocals on this song always conjures the image of a toothless 80-year-old crone who's just escaped from an insane asylum and somehow wound up in the middle of a recording session. I haven't heard her other material but that's what she sounds like on this particular track, and I'm tired of hearing it every damn time I set foot in a Duane Reade or a Walgreen's. Just tonight I was sitting in a Polish restaurant trying to immerse myself in a plate of pierogies and guess what comes on the radio. Fuckin' "I'm the Only One." There's just no escaping this loathsome track and what baffles me is that any DJs think people still want to hear it.
I don't, at any rate; and, when it comes to this point, I (joke coming) emphatically do not think (joke imminent) I'm the only one.
