Roderickrolling and The Heart of Saturday Night

Ever since I saw this on YouTube, I've been humming "Never Gonna Give You Up" non-stop. This happened last Aug. 1 when Rick Astley visited Manila for a one night concert. Although people kept calling him a one-hit wonder, he never was for the Filipinos. He had a lot of hits here back in the 80's (I can still sing parts of "Together Forever", "It Would Take a Strong Strong Man", and "Cry for Help" if you ask me too!). I suspect this is partly due to Roderick Paulate singing Rick Astley's songs whenever he makes guest appearances in variety shows on TV and also on his very own show with Carmi Martin, "Tonight with Dick and Carmi". I salute Roderick for giving in to the request of the Filipino multitude! (If you want to find out how this all came about, click here)

Now, as much as I like Rick Astley and his songs, I was glad to have my LSS (last-song-syndrome) replaced yesterday with a song by Diana Krall, which I heard on the radio on the way home from work. I didn't know the title of the song so I researched about it today and found out that the original version was recorded in 1974 by Tom Waits. Here's The Heart of Saturday Night:
