Birthday Greetings & Re-Releases
(I couldn't find a recent picture of Roger so I just used one of my favorites from a few years back when he appeared on The X Factor.)
Roger's always been very opinionated in his songs and way back in 1994, he included a song on his Happiness? album titled "Dear Mr. Murdoch". Here's a link to the lyrics which are, in typical Roger-fashion, "colorful".
Well since our boy essentially had a crystal ball as far as predicting some of the scandal that's gone on recently with the News of the World and some of Murdoch's other papers, he's decided to seize the opportunity for a little self-promotion and is re-releasing a new version of the song. Click here for a full story.
The new version is much softer and includes less studio effects than the original. I think I prefer it. Of course, because America doesn't exist in Roger's mind, it's not available for download over here, but if any of you lovelies across the pond want to figure out a way to get it to me, I'd greatly appreciate it!

So Happy Birthday, Roger and for those of you who can download his new single: Enjoy!
