Lani's 2,500th post commemorative thread

Dear Friends:

I originally planned to commemorate members of this forum when they reached important milestones of posting on this forum. I thought honoring every 1000 posts would be a sufficient honor, but several of you pointed out to me that Lani was approaching 2,500 posts, and because of the timing, she wouldn't be honored for several months when she reached 3,000 posts. This wouldn't suffice for someone who has been tireless in providing so much valuable information to the HER2 Community. So with that in mind, I would like to start a game thread which deals with song titles and the performers.

The game is simple. One person comes up with a song and the performer of the song. The next person comes up with one other song which uses one or more words of the previous song title or the author.

For example:

If the song was:

Can't you hear me knocking by the Rolling Stones

The next person could suggest any of the following:

Can't by me Love by the Beatles

or even:

Plush by the Stone Temple Pilots

Good Luck, this game may be more challenging than it first appears.

I'll Start:

Won't get fooled again by the Who

Aug'07~
MRI - brain mets shrunk half, NO NEW BRAIN METS!!, TMs stable @ 9.2
Oct'07~
