Can we talk about Annie Lennox? How can you NOT love Annie Lennox? Annie Lennox is the definition of cool – here at American Idol last night, totally chill and unchanged after all these years.

I do this thing with Annie when my iPod shuffles onto to one of her songs. Even if they are kinda operatic cheese, only Annie can make me pretend I’m in a music video and lipsynch along – particularly to No More I Love You’s. When the choir rises up towards the end, I could be in running in the forest or on the treadmill – doesn’t matter – my arms will swell up and my chest will stick out, like Pavarotti at the Hollywood Bowl…something about Annie’s music sends me over the top.

Annie Lennox is for all time.

Love, love, love.
