I Wanna Know by Joe (23) - Not a bad little R&B song. What Joe lacks in vocal talent he makes up for in sexy crooning. Quite honestly there is nothing spectacular about this song but I still enjoy it. I doubt that there is a woman alive who wouldn't. It is simple and sweet love song that makes me a melt a little bit. Now if this was sung by say...Joshua Radin and it would be all over. It is pretty tough to believe that all of the sweetness found in this song isn't total bullshit. Oh well. In the right mood it isn't a bad song to listen to. In my current mood it just makes me a little bit sad. Best Line: "I'd like to know what makes you cry so I can be the one who always makes you smile."
Faded by Soul Decision (20) - There really is something irresistible about boy bands. No matter how terrible a song might be...you can't help but like and this song is a perfectly good example of that. This really is a terrible song and I know on some level I should be a little bit offended as a woman yet I can't help dancing a little and singing along. I don't know much about the boys of Soul Decision but I am guessing that they have broken up since their "success" with this song. That's too bad really...as this song is actually pretty funny. How cool must they have thought they were to use the line " You stepped like my steeps the way we conversated"? Poor bastards. Yet as great as that line is, it is not my pick for the best line. Best Line: "Ever since you've been hangin' around I've been trying to figure out what I'm gonna say to you to get some play, yeah". You can't tell me that line doesn't make you laugh?
Somebody's Crying by Chris Isaak (241) - Now I was only like 13 (I think) when this song came out but that did not deter from developing what appears to be a lifelong crush on Chris Isaak. I remember buying the CD single of this song and listening to it over and over again for weeks. The funny thing is that I loved the song but had no idea what it was really about. I get it now and let's just say that it doesn't make it any easier to listen to now that I do. It is a simple song of longing and self-deception and yet it still manages to be overwhelmingly hot. I stand by my previous statements that it really doesn't matter what Chris is singing about...it just sounds hot. Add that incredible voice to his stellar looks and it really is no wonder that teenage Millie developed a thing for him. Best Line: "I know somebody and they called your name a million times and still you never came."
Here (In Your Arms) by Hellogoodbye (381) I don't care that no one else likes this song and I am not ashamed to admit that it is #10 in My Top 25 playlist on my iPod. It is a bouncy little love song and I happen to be quite fond of it. I love the simplicity of it. The song is about telling someone that you like to be with them and all of the reasons why. Before you knock this song, stop and think when the last time it was that you told someone that you liked being with them...then judge. In the meantime...get off my back about this song...you know who you are. Best Line: "Well you are the one, the one that lies close to me, whisper's "Hello, I've missed you quite terribly"".
Heaven by Warrant (237) - I was just about to sign off for the night when this song came on. I can't turn this song...ever. This is another one of those ballads that I hear and just stop and think to. It provokes the eye closing, back-tilting, back and forth rocking that I love about ballads as I sing along...even though it isn't a rock song...except for one line that always brings on all three...every single time I hear it. So that line is my pick for best line. Best Line: "I've got nowhere left to go and no one really cares I don't know what to do but I'm never giving up on you." It just barely nudges out the line "I don't need to be a superman as long as you will always be my biggest fan".

So let's start with Peyton. I have shown his best commercials and now here is my pick for the 2nd best Peyton moment...off of the field.
I think that this is incredibly funny...but only because it is not me. Should certain videos from my youth ever surface...I will be mortified. I think what is awesome is the fact that he did in fact totally rock the routine. It is just awesome.
And now I am ever so pleased to present my favorite Derek Jeter off the field moment. I remember seeing this when it aired for the 1st time on TV...and being overwhelmed by it. The combination of Derek Jeter and Star Wars was almost too much for me to handle. See for yourself.
Moving on...both men were destined to become the amazing athlete that he is today. Take a look...
So here is the bottom line. After reviewing both videos...it is clear that we have two totally different men who are totally awesome in their own way. So let's break it down.
Starting with Derek:
- OMG! Is there any doubt that he is the sexiest man to walk the planet? It doesn't matter which video clip you look at...he is looks damn gorgeous.
- Oh those eyes. OK so I have talked about it before and will probably talk about it again...Derek's eyes are amazing. In several clips you get a close up of those eyes...it hardly seems fair to compare him to anyone with eyes like that.
- There is no doubt that Derek loves being a Yankee. Every video clip makes reference to or is centered around being a New York Yankee. His devotion to the Yankees might be on the sexiest things about him.
- None found as posting time. Still open to suggestions.
On to Peyton:
- That smile. While Peyton is not where close to being in the same league as Derek as far as good looks...there is something to be said about that smile. I suspect that it could melt more than a few hearts.
- Confidence. How confident in yourself would you have to be in order to make fun of yourself as much as Peyton does? On and off the field...Peyton is the man and he knows it...and it comes through in every video clip.
- His sense of humor. Some say that the way to a girls heart is through her funny bone. If that is true...than Peyton is a lucky man because he is funny as hell. On really bad days I will youtube his Mastercard Commercials because they always make me laugh.
While I laugh my ass off at every commerical he does and I get a rush every time he steps on the field...there is no flutter of in the heart.
There really is no clear cut winner...but I have made my decision none the less. And the winner is....
Why? Check his pros list and then take into consideration while Peyton has more funny moments than Derek...Derek is still capable of making me laugh. (As proven by the ESPY skit.) Peyton can make me laugh but he cannot make me swoon...and for that reason...Derek wins again.

So this one is great simply because Peyton totally sells it. Just like he does on the field, Peyton gives his all in this commercial and that is what makes it great. The best part has to be his reaction to getting a high five from his favorite accountant...and the statement that he is never going to wash that hand again. Finally...it works because of the looks on everyone faces in response to Peyton's support. I love it and wish that I would have had this idea back in my heyday.
So the reason that this one is awesome because it makes me think think that I could hang with Peyton. The practical jokes, the creative revenge, the need to top each prank...just ask any one of my prank victims if I am in any way off track with this one. The final line of the commercial is awesome..."Oh it's on". How many times have I uttered these same words?
Without a doubt...this is my favorite Peyton Manning commercial. It might be my favorite commercial ever. I know that this is going to sound terrible, but I cannot help but laugh when the barista screams after burning himself. The high pitch scream is just awesome. What makes it even better is Peyton's response of "rub some dirt on it". I feel like I am allowed to laugh at it for I time I was told "walk it off" or "add another layer of tape" both of which I was told the time that I had a tib-fib fracture a week before regionals.
Derek vs Peyton...that's a tough call. We'll has that out tomorrow night...as I really should be studying my DSST test instead googling Peyton Manning videos. What can I say...I suck at being a student.

You know that are DA MAN when you get paid to rag on Tiger Woods. What makes it even better is the fact that he is right about it.
What the hell? You've read about it...and here is your chance to see it.
But why stop there?
Is there nothing that he can't do? Oh and in case there is any doubt...his print advertisements are just as good as shown in the below picture from the Derek Jeter Driven: Black ads.
