“Hellbent” written and sung by Crystal.
Here is just a tiny sampling from this song (propaganda)
(Audio of Bush talking about God choosing who goes to hell)
Then Crystal: “you must be happy now...women and children lying cold in the dirt”
The above is just one line in a song which is filled with hate filled lies.
If you find this person “beautiful” then may I suggest you find a forum more suited to your beliefs. I have nothing more to say to you.
Please continue to stick your head in the sand and enjoy the “real Crystal”.
Wait...I do have one more thing to say to you.
From your tagline I am guessing you admire Sarah Palin.
That same song “Hellbent” has the same hatred for Bush thrown at Palin as well.
As a musician and lyricist, it took me a very long time to understand people actually do listen to and contemplate lyrics. The reason I say this is because myself, and I know at least a couple other musicians, use to concentrate solely on the "music" and never really managed to grasp the importance of the real message of a song. It has since taught me why people view others music so differently.
I use to listen to Elton John and think this guy is a great musician along with Bernie Taupin they write undeniably fabulous songs. Then I found out how FLAMING they were, and it changed my whole perspective as to how I listen to their music now.
What was once pure, is so tarnished. However, that does not make Elton John's music less great...
Many talented musicians, writers, and actors have tarnished their art in my mind by trying to shove their liberal opinions down my throat.
But they are still talented. I just don’t give them my money anymore.
But......Crystal singing these lyrics is the same as if she went out and spoke them in public.
Murtha calling our brave men and women murderers or Crystal singing about Bush causing women and children to lie dead in the street, is the same thing.
Singing it real pretty doesn’t (shouldn’t?) negate the hate filled lies.
” That’s why Taylor Hicks bombed because he is NOT a top 40 artist. BTW, neither is Crystal or Casey. “
Do you think Lee could be? He does have that Springsteen/to my ears Joe Cocker sound.....
What’s your read.
I don't think there's any question about that. I think Lee is the next Bryan Adams (not that he sounds like Adams) depending on his song writing ability. That's where you really find the talent. Whether an artist can write their own music or make someone Else's there own. Lee has the best chance of this happening.
And I don't care what any one thinks, bringing out the Bagpipes wanker was brilliant! It just fits him.
Ping! Hope you’re feeling better.

Appreciate your perspective.
I’m betting he’s the Winner. I think he has grown each week,
and played the underdog to the popularity crew as it has evolved each week ( Casey, Mike, Crystal - early on )
Also I do respect Simon’s ear for listen-ability....
He long ago stated Lee had a “ radio friendly voice” or something to that effect.
Simon told Katie Stevens she should go country. One night I was really listening to her, and noticed it. Randi and Kara all said pop, but paying attention to her vocal phrasing Country would suit her quite well.
Simon probably is right 95% of the time. Even when he's wrong, he's right! LOL! I will miss him!!
” Simon probably is right 95% of the time. Even when he’s wrong, he’s right! LOL! I will miss him!! “
Agree, he is the show.
Ellen to me adds nothing. Randy has become a broken “ Yo Dog”
record, and Kara is full of herself, and “ touchy feely” garbled advice...........
Will be interesting to see the results for his new show vs Idol if it continues next year.
Disgusting. Typical liberal rantings...so glad I never liked her!
Arlington Park will host Lee DeWyze and thousands of his fans Friday if he makes the cut Wednesday and is named one of "American Idol's" final three contestants.
A concert at the track will be the last event in an all-day hometown celebration of DeWyze, the affable young musician from Mount Prospect who has become a national star through his success on this year's "Idol." Tickets would be available minutes after vote results are announced on "Idol" Wednesday night.
Although his schedule is still being finalized, DeWyze will probably start his day on the Fox TV program "Good Day Chicago" followed by stops at local radio stations and an AT&T store.
After that, DeWyze will head to Wrigley Field to throw out the first pitch at the 1:20 p.m. Cubs game against Pittsburgh.
From Wrigley, DeWyze will head to the Northwest suburbs for a private stop at a District 214 school that will not be open to the public before kicking off a parade at 4:30 p.m. along Northwest Highway between Route 83 and Central Road, Mount Prospect spokeswoman Maura El Metennani said.
Fans would be able to park in the Mount Prospect village hall parking deck at 50 S. Emerson St., commuter parking lots along the railroad tracks on Northwest Highway and Prospect Avenue, and designated on-street parking.
From there, it's over to the track, where DeWyze will perform three songs in an hourlong concert starting at about 6:30 p.m. Horse racing Friday will start at 1 p.m. instead of 3 p.m. and wrap up around 5:30 p.m. to accommodate the concert, said track spokesman Dave Zenner.
At the performance, Mount Prospect Mayor Irvana Wilks will present DeWyze with a key to the village, and Arlington Heights Village President Arlene Mulder will greet the crowd and welcome Lee, his family, friends and fans.
"We're really excited," Zenner said. "How often does someone from our area get this far in the show?"
The track holds about 30,000 people, Zenner said.
Entrance to the DeWyze show will be free, but fans must get tickets. They will be available on the Arlington Park website, arlingtonpark.com, minutes after DeWyze makes it past the next round Wednesday night.
Fans can also buy a $6 general-admission ticket to get into the park before those with free "Idol" tickets.
Parking at the track will be free, Zenner said.
"American Idol" hometown celebrations are given to the top three contestants on the show. Mount Prospect officials are still planning the details of the event, which attracts MTV, "Access Hollywood," People Magazine and anywhere from 5,000 to 20,000 fans.
"Idol" fans who can't wait until Friday can cheer on DeWyze tonight at several local locations. Hundreds of fans are expected to attend an "Idol" party at the Blues Bar, 2 W. Busse Road, and Capannari Ice Cream will host a party at St. Raymond's Catholic School gym, 300 S. Elmhurst Avenue in Mount Prospect. Fans also gather at the Fox and the Hound, 910 W. Dundee Road in Arlington Heights.
Party: Free tickets to Arlington show, or $6 to watch horse races first.
RK, did you hear Lee’s acoustic rendition of Sex On Fire and Use Somebody? They are great! Go check out the Youtubes. He’s just sitting on a friggin stool jaming in some bar, and Karoaking it up in another...This guy is pretty good!
Thanks I’ll have to check it out. I love KoL.
I think he'll make the cut :)
