There’s a commercial on TV at the moment that uses this song in the background.  I honestly can’t remember a thing about the ad, even though I’ve probably seen it 20 times (which supports my theory that commercials don’t actually work); I think it’s either for an airline or car insurance.  Regardless, it’s got Every Rose Has It’s Thorn stuck in my head. I remember the first time I heard of the band Poison was in a middle school social studies class.  We were doing an exercise in which we had to “interview” somebody in the class that we hardly knew.  I got paired with a girl who would later be described as slightly “goth,” but at the time that word didn’t really exist yet.  When I asked her what music she liked, she said “Poison.”  I thought she was referring to the Bel Biv Devoe song. While searching youtube just now I discovered that Miley Cyrus did a cover of Poison’s song.  I’m not ashamed to admit I kind of love it, and I’m honestly shocked I didn’t already know it existed.  For the purists here’s the original video, but below is Miley performing it in Central Park with Poison lead singer Bret Michaels: Check out “37 seconds of sports and other stuff i care about” at lucidsportsfan.com, and follow Mark on twitter @LucidSportsFan var conf_57443 = { APIKey: '2_N1YlfjHIEAtyRAK3CAYRE5a1aBuANuMOCLc_7hsOQ13HnwCrW_u-6OuDhjC7vR06 ', lang : 'en', enabledProviders: '' }; var image57443 = {src:'http://cdn.cosbysweaters.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Every_Rose_Has_Its_Thorn-Cover.poison.jpg',href:'http://cosbysweaters.com/2013/01/23/lucidsportsfans-awesome-old-song-of-the-week-39/',type:'image'}; var ua_57443 = new gigya.services.socialize.UserAction(); ua_57443.setUserMessage(''); ua_57443.setLinkBack('http://cosbysweaters.com/2013/01/23/lucidsportsfans-awesome-old-song-of-the-week-39/'); ua_57443.setTitle('LucidSportsFan\'s Awesome Old Song of the Week'); ua_57443.addMediaItem(image57443); var params_57443 ={ userAction:ua_57443, cssPrefix:'#gig-div-buttons-57443-bottom', shareButtons:'facebook-like,google-plusone,share,twitter,email', // list of providers containerID: 'gig-div-buttons-57443-bottom', cid:'' }; gigya.services.socialize.showShareBarUI(conf_57443,params_57443); Article found on: Cosby Sweaters
