Manilow/Daggy Music 1, Hoons 0

This one goes out especially to eric_mathgeek.

From The Week:

"SYDNEY -  Cheesy music deployed: A Sydney suburb has begun blasting Barry Manilow hits to ward off hooligans. Young drag racers, known as hoons, have been loitering in a central parking lot, revving their cars and intimidating patrons of a nearby restaurant. City councilors in Rockdale hope that the sappy sounds of Manilow's 70's ballads will solve the problem. 'Daggy music is one way to make the hoons leave,' said Councilor Bill Saravinoski. 'They can't stant it.' Manilow's hits include 'Copacabana,' 'Mandy,' and 'I Write the Songs.'"

I don't think the gays can get erections while Manilow is playing. At least, for the most part. There are always very cute exceptions that prove any rule...

Time in New England now makes me think of boymeat, 'cuz I sang it to him while sitting in his lap...

I feel the change coming
I feel the wind blow
I feel brave and daring!
I feel my blood flow

With you, I can bring out
All the love that I have
With you, there's a heaven
So earth ain't so bad

And tell me

When will our eyes meet
When can I touch you
When will this strong yearning end <-- LOVE singing this line, loud and strong, orGASmic
And when
Will I hold you again

I think that Manilow sung by you whilst sitting in my lap could turn my opinion around on the whole matter. It could take some time, though.
