Normally, if given a choice between watching American Idol and having a burnt stick shoved up my nose, I'd opt for the latter. Tonight, however, an exception may have to be made -- Peter Noone of Herman's Hermits is going to be a guest judge. Or coach. Or whatever they do on that stupid show.
And before you start sneering, go here and download an mp3 of the Hermits "No Milk Today." Written by the great Grahame Gouldman, natch, and pure pop heaven.
