Selected for a host of reasons.
Kick-ass tune (Top Ten Hit in 1991).
Valentine's Day is coming up fast.
The song-story: BTDT, got the t-shirt.
It's on a short list of tunes in my vocal range, such that I could walk out on something like AGT and nail this one, cold, ten times out of ten, without getting X'ed off the stage and collecting thrown rotten fruit on the way to the wings after an epic 'don't-quit-your-day-job' mocking by Simon Cowell, nor causing hearing injury to canines.
And that means if it comes on, it stays on, until it's over. And I can hold that penultimate line longer than Chris did, if it comes to it. But he got there first.
