I'm on top of the world

Song Stuck on the Brain: "It's My Life" by Bon Jovi

This ain't a song for the broken-hearted
No silent prayer for the faith-departed
I ain't gonna be just a face in the crowd
You're gonna hear my voice When I shout it out loud

It's my life
It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said I did it my way
I just wanna live while I'm alive
It's my life

This is for the ones who stood their ground
For Tommy and Gina who never backed down
Tomorrow's getting harder make no mistake
Luck ain't even lucky
Gotta make your own breaks

It's my life
It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said I did it my way
I just wanna live while I'm alive
It's my life

Better stand tall when they're calling you out
Don't bend, don't break, baby, don't back down

It's my life
It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said I did it my way
I just wanna live while I'm alive
It's my life


It's my life
It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said I did it my way
I just wanna live while I'm alive
'Cause it's my life!


Surprisingly enough, I kind of feel like this today. I don't really know why, but I heard it on the radio this morning while driving in and I just felt all pumped. Like the Rocky moment when he's reached the top. I kind of feel like I could take on the world today so just watch out! I hope I can carry that over into my weekend, it sure would help me get more accomplished.
Now on to Idol, I promised my predictions on Tuesday and here it is Friday and you're all still waiting on pins and needles, right? Sorry. I had a tough time deciding. It really came down to who I wanted in the top 3 and who I thought would actually be in the top 3. For example, Hayley and Sanjaya seem to have more lives than a cat. I like both of them and they have fine voices, they're just not in the same league as the rest.

So who do I want in the top 3? Glad you asked. Here's my initial dream team:



Melinda Doolittle, Blake Lewis , and Chris Sligh. The judges really slammed Chris and Blake for rearranging and refreshing their Diana Ross song choices. I think they were great. I loved both of their arrangements. Not only were they current and fresh, but it showed great skill and talent for both of them. The judges claim they want a singer that can take a song and make it their own, and their right, it's a sign of a true artist. It just chaps my hide when they get people that have that ability and they call them out for it. They did that to Chris Daughtry last year. Chris might not have one, but he's certainly not been hurt by his 4th place standing. His album is incredible.

However, as much as I love Chris Sligh's voice and personality, he doesn't quite have the same star power on the stage. So I can't include him in my official predictions. Instead I think he'll make it to the top six at least, maybe even top 4.

WHO are my official picks for top 3? Okay, okay, enough stalling. Here are my picks.

Melinda Doolittle, Blake Lewis and Jordin Sparks.
Jordin has the star quality and, I believe, the ability to be fresh, current and versatile.

Who do I think will win? I think Melinda is a shoo in to take it all. Then again, I thought Chris was last year (and he should have been.) I could be so off track that I'm going backwards, but there are my choices none the less.
Now it's up to the rest of you to vote, vote, vote!!!

I would love for Blake to be the winner. He's my personal fav, but I'm not sure he has the ability to beat out Melinda. He's so good though. I love his voice and his Beatboxing is fantastic.
