Did she google the lyrics or something? Why is her phone so important?

In a word, yes. She explains that she hadn't sung the song in years.

Um, what about this one? [Smashing Pumpkins' Landslide]

Nope, Billy Corgan does not sound like Stevie Nicks.

Miley Cyrus has a decent singing voice. It's a shame that she does all of that other crap to get attention instead of letting her voice shine.

Similarly, Lady Ga Ga could be a once-in-a-generation singer if she didn't use all that electronic pop distracting crap:

It's Downton Abbey and not Downtown Abbey.

You're not alone.

Although... I would seriously watch the heck out of "Downtown Abbey" if it existed.

That was actually the working title for The Wire.

Hmm, do you really think that much of her voice? Or do you mean her songwriting as well?

Her songwriting is definitely a problem, too.

Similar: Adele Adkins....boring beyond belief songs, but one good recording....composed by whoever makes the James Bond music.

She wrote that one, too.

I suspect there's probably more than one porn flick with that title.

That's... not quite what I had in mind.

Wow, that's odd, good for her. Normally the bond songs are orders of magnitude better than the singers' popular music because they are written by someone who knows composition, so it's good to see she may have that skill too. On the other hand, it makes it even more frustrating her other songs are so blah.

If you're annoying enough, you can get them to respond with an involuntary second sigh and get a rhythm going.

Yeah.

You can split the Apple iPad keyboard into two-thumb mode and keep it docked at the base of the screen just by pinching the keyboard apart. Must have been in the manual I didn't read.

And you can move the split-keyboard anywhere else along the vertical edges of the screen.

She does, and I totally agree. I hadn't realized just how good a voice she had until I saw these videos. I especially like the 2nd.

Similarly, you can split the Kindle Fire keyboard by holding the "/" (or "," depending on the app) key... (which I just learned this week)

Psh. Just get Swype! Or I think the stock Android keyboard does that now too.

Rallick, stock Kindle comes with Swype, but it's kinda hard on a larger device...

I swear I did not click twice...

Yeah, I noticed on my daughter's tablets that it was more work to use Swype than on my phone. On my phone it's easily the best method for data entry.

It depends. On my Nexus 7, SwiftKey allows me to smush and reduce the size of the keyboard off to the right or left, so it's nearly identical to using the same swipe pad as a phone. It also gives my thumb options and full keyboard options.

I'm not sure if this is the "official video" release on YouTube but the audio is the version that appears on "Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness".

Look, I'm sure all decent human beings can agree that the Smashing Pumpkins were the best of a lot of things. (Until the end.)
