What do you think of...

the song Instant Pleasure by Rufus Wainwright? I just researched it and it came out in 1999, and I'm surprised I've only heard it now because I really really like it.

I ADORE Rufus Wainwright!

He's one of my favourite artists. That song was for the soundtrack to 'Big Daddy', it's good, but he has loads more better songs. You should check out his 'Want One' and 'Want Two' albums, they are just simply amazing.

And he is beautiful.

OOoo words cannot describe how much I LOVE Rufus!!!

As Katie says, Instant Pleasure is good but he has tonnes of better songs. 'Want One' and 'Want Two' are excellent albums. There's his debut 'Rufus Wainwright' album and 'Poses' too, all great stuff. The first two have a slightly different sound to the second two. If you really want a proper introduction to Rufus it might be best starting with the first two albums first!

Oh and you MUST get hold of his version of Hallelujah from Shrek. (even though his version didn't feature in the film) There are a couple of covers like He Aint Heavy and Across the Universe that are a must in any Rufus collection!
If you have trouble finding the odd mp3, PM me I might be able to help you....

Oh and he's bloody gorgeous

his sister is way better.
martha.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.
