I keep the site running and occasionally add an informational post. I'm a mom, a computer geek, an Adam Lambert nut and I love good design of any kind. My music taste is eclectic, but I'm particular in my diversity. You can reach me on twitter! @lliillaa


  1. I love this news & this performance! Thanks for posting, Lila!

    • I am so glad to hear that Adam is back on the charts, any charts. When it comes to radio play (which I know varies from place to place), where I live very seldom do they play Adam. Why I can’t understand. He’s got the most amazing voice, at least in my book, that is out there right now. Not to mention the entire package. I thought his performance on Glee was so killer! I’ve watched it I don’t how many times since the show. I am (as you can tell) totally gone on the beautiful young man.

      • Jackie, I hear Adam’s music on certain stations and even in Stores but most of it from the first CD, IMO the songs on the second CD did not hold up as well. As far as overall Radio play I would think that Clear Channel Communications has at least a small hand in that. They own 1200 radio stations and growing in the US. alone and have a very narrow conservative ownership. Adam being openly Gay is a double edge sword that artist like Mercury, Elton John, Boy George and others guarded for a long time for these exact reasons. Slash made a comment about Adam’s Pipes and how he was blown away, I think the need for music that has great range and lends itself to his strengths is what he needs. I can’t wait to see what he might do with Queen in Studio if that ever happens. The GAGA song is an example of what he can do with the right songs. His version of “Who Wants To Live Forever” was amazing!

    I have loved Adam since I first saw him on Idol. Was blessed to have seen him 3 times in person. The greatest singer/entertainer in the world.

    I love his version of this song. I think it is ADAM at his best. I want to buy it, but I’ve never boughten music from Amazon before. Is there anything special I need to know? Do I need Wifi? I am totally computer illiterate, but I’d like to learn! Can anyone help?

    • Hi Evette,
      There are a few different ways to do this. Since you mentioned Amazon, I’ll suggest you download the free Cloud Player from Amazon. Then, when you buy your music from Amazon, the music will be stored there and you’ll open that program to listen to it, again and again! The same goes for iTunes. If you need any technical help, Amazon has a great Support system for answering questions. You should always save all your music/pictures/videos/data on another source too, like an external hard drive, just in case your computer crashes.

  5. He’s so fricken’ bad ass, and so is the song! My God, what a voice!!!!!!!!! I LOVE HIM!!!!

  6. one good woman says:

    OMG I have been watching this video everyday. I love love LOVE his voice. He is freaking awesome. I want to be a VIP at his concert some day. He should be winning all kinds of awards in the states. WAKE UP US! You have an amazing star right under your nose. Take hold and embrace him. There is no one else like Adam.

  7. TThanks, love this song and hope he sings it at his New Year’s concert I,m going to:)
