  1. ” I’d do anything (but I won’t do it)”.
    Worst single award, yeah, I believe that, since that song doesn’t exists.
    “I’d do anything for love (but I won’t do that)” however… is a puzzling thing for me.
    but meh… different taste.

  2. Michael – you are one of the GREAT ones /
    I am also a HUGE New York Yankee fan, as was my father /
