Taylor Hicks/Jason Yeager - Long Train Running
We all know that Jason Yeager got voted off last week's American Idol, but I wanted to put up his version of the Doobie's "Long Train Running". I didn't think it was that bad, but perhaps if he had performed it the way Taylor did in concert, he'd still be in the competition - or maybe not. Simon referenced Jason's ending to the song - sorta like a poor man's Taylor ending, and Simon unearthed the "D" word again - one he had no problem using on Taylor unjustly. I dunno, maybe I'm seeing too much into this. Take a listen/comparison. Sorry about the jumpy video.
