"This Is My Now,” “The Time of My Life,” “Do I Make You Proud” , “A Moment Like This.”
The "American Idol" winning song is a horrific, treacly number called, "No Boundaries" (not to be confused with prior winning titles such as "This Is My Now"). Lucky for me, I'm partial to horrific, treacly numbers, especially when sung by American Idol contestants.
It's easy to make fun of American Idol. In fact, it's the kind of thing that I typically would make fun of. But I love it, and I love being part of this national conversation, however superficial.
Knowing a bit about sports, politics, and pop culture - I have a ready reference for any awkward situation; some kind of common ground.
