    I can sing it reasonably well. I did it in karaoke a couple of weeks ago while I was working up the song sheet. I had the advantage of having watched a Fleetwood Mac cover band a few nights before and of having spent several hours reviewing videos to recommend to my guitarristas. There was more applause than I usually get, probably because the song was such a big hit and a lot of people like it. One guy shook my hand as I left the stage and said, "I really love that song. Thanks for doing it. You were great."

    The most likely reason it got such a good response is that it's not one that people do; it is rarely heard in karaoke bars. When people hear one of their favorite songs that no one ever does, they appreciate it.

    I told someone else here that my lead singer in the guitar group is better than Stevie. I'll stand by that. She rings like a bell in the night with her clear, piercing soprano voice. Maybe I'll start bringing an electric guitar to the group, but just for that one song. The riff just isn't quite the same on an acoustic guitar, even if it is a very nice one I got in Madrid.

      Honest :)

      I run karaoke, and I get a bit jaded sometimes.

      I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
      but I fear we will remain Democrats.
