Me and Herbie go to the Derby in our Old Kentucky Home
Blog Guy, you follow the European music scene closely. I heard Bono blew them away in London on the U2 world tour.
Yes, but the real star of that show was Erik Tysse, the warm-up act from Norway. Erik came out of nowhere to do a Susan Boyle sort of show-stopper, singing “My Old Kentucky Home.”
I’m telling you, there wasn’t a dry eye in the stadium! “The sun shines bright in My Old Kentucky home, ‘Tis summer, and people are gay…”
You bonehead! I don’t even know where to begin. Erik Tysse was in Berlin at the athletics championships, not London, and he’s NOT singing “My Old Kentucky Home.”
Oh yeah? Then what IS he singing?
Nothing! He’s drinking water from a fricking bottle!
You know, I WONDERED why a Norwegian dude was singing about gay people in Kentucky!
