I'm not a big Rufus fan, but that was lovely. My favorites will always be, of course Garland, but I also love the way Patti LaBelle sings the living hell out of that song.

EG: Yeah, Rufus is definitely a taste you either have or you don't. A friend of mine says she thinks he sounds like he's yodeling!

I've never heard Patti's version of the song, and I'd love to. I've adored her since the "Lady Marmalade" days.

Granny: LOVE, love, love, the Golden compass and all the His Dark Materials books! The movie is supposed to suck big time though.
