so one of my youth staff (who is 20) was going through my itunes library when she came across paula abdul and asked "paula abdul was a singer?" so after kicking her out my office, i looked into the mirror to remind myself just how old i was! it amazing that to that to young people, paula is famous for being a judge and not the superb entertainer she once was. while she often gets flack for lacking vocals skills, she certainly was no cassie. want proof, listen to this tune. the first single from her sophomore album spellbound, this song rocketed to the top of the chart. what many folks are not aware of is that the version that was released was the vocal she recorded for the demo. any who, samantha - paula was a singer and a hell of a dancer!
