Choose your favorite colour. Is it Red, Blue, Yellow or if you are in the minority Green.

I don't understand why people want me to pick a favorite color. Isn't it akin to picking your favorite musical note? "personally i like D# above middle C, but most people tend to pick A-flat..."

the question seems silly to me.

B-flat is loads of fun at parties.

I was going to say something like that.

B-Flat the bastard child of the chromatic scale.

Whereas "A" just sits there and never shuts up. And the "C" just keeps getting louder.

Ah, the tightrope walker's choice: C# or Bb?

"Yellow. No, blue! Ahhhhhhhhh!"


A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi

My big conundrum has always been between whether I prefer B# or C. It's kind of like those frequent debates about which is truly more pleasing to the ear: E or F-flat.

I totally agree, expecial in an important time like this. I wish however that they would stick to the colours I have chosen.

I can't help wondering if:

a) People not in your locality don't realise what you are really asking
or
b) They realise, but are trying to enhance the level of drivelness in the thread.

Oh, and by the way, yellow.

What do you think, you couldn't say that your not expecting this. We are stuck with blue for another 5 years. I hope you enjoy the song.

You can walk my path
You can wear my shoes
Let her talk like me
And be an angel too

But maybe
You ain't never gonna feel this way
You ain't never gonna know me
But I know you...
Teach you now that

Things can only get better
Can only get, can only get
They get on from here
You know, I know that
Things can only get better

I sometimes lose myself in me
I lose track of time
And I can't see the world's formed trees
You set them alight, burning the bridges as you go
I'm too weak to fight you
I got my personal health to deal with
And you say

Walk my path
Wear my shoes
Talk like me
I'll be an angel and

(CHORUS
Things can only get better
Can only get better
Now I've found you
(That means me)
(Will you teach me now)
Things can only get better
Can only get better
Now I've found you

And you and you...
You... show me prejudice and greed
You show me how
I must learn to deal with this disease
I look at things now
In a different light than I did before
I found the cause
And I think that you could be my cure
And you say

Walk your path
Wear your shoes
Talk like that
I'll be an angel too

(chorus)

Things can only get, can only get
Things can only get, can only get
Things can only get, can only get
Things can only get, can only get
