    I want Clive Owen vs. Daniel Craig in a two-hour-plus thriller and I want Owen to defeat Craig in the final second. Sidekicks for each to be negotiated later.

    That's so true. Never looked at it like that before, but I agree. Just to use the Canadian band the Barenaked Ladies for instance, most Americans would likely only know 'One Week' aka the chikita the chinese chicken song, but their domestic popularity dates back to several albums prior to that with 'If I Had a Million Dollars', being a major hit for them domestically. And then you have bands that despite their huge popularity domestically, never end up getting to be a one-hit-wonder elsewhere. It's all about being in the right place at the right time in order to be part of the zeitgeist.

    Falco is another band that shows up in the MTV or VH1 "one hit wonder" shows. Rock Me Amadeus was a #1 hit in the US, but only Calling Vienna ever charted in the US after that. But they charted many times in Austria and other European countries.

    I thought Falco was a "he" not a full band name. I enjoyed his music, but never really got deep into it. I do prefer Vienna Calling to Rock Me Amadeus. Tragic ending, never the less.

    An interestingly dangerous character in OLD.
