Saturday 9: Stay with Me (2014)

... because Kwizgiver recommended it

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) Sam Smith explains that this song is about just not wanting to wake up alone. How about you? Are you comfortable being by yourself? 
Listen. I've had a handful of kids and dogs and cats with Hubs.  I'm at the life stage where going to get a gallon of milk by myself is a treat. So, yes?

2) Last year a lawsuit filed by Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne, who maintained that "Stay with Me" was really just "I Won't Back Down." Petty and Lynne won. Have you ever served on a jury?
No, I've never been called! I don't know why; luck of the draw, I guess.

3) Smith performed this on The David Letterman Show. Did you watch Dave's final episode last May? 
I honestly can't remember whether I did or not! Must have been awesome.

4) Smith says his style was influenced by ladies with "massive voices," including Adele, Amy Winehouse, Chaka Kahn, and Whitney Houston. Of those four, which do you listen to most often? 
I love Adele. I'm glad she took time off to do important mom things, but I do hope she comes back BIG time!

5) Speaking of style, Mr. Smith is a smart dressed man who looks comfortable and dapper as he walks the red carpet in a tux. Do you enjoy getting dressed up for special occasions? 
For the most part, I do. Lately it's all about finding the right brassiere for me to match the outfit. Really?!

6) "Occasions" is a word that makes Crazy Sam stumble because she can never remember how to spell it correctly. Are you a good speller?
I'm a champ.

7) Sam Smith was born on May 19, which makes him a Taurus. When did you last check your horoscope?
I mean, if I run across my horoscope (Virgo), then I might have a look at it, but I don't seek it out or anything.

8) Tauruses are supposed to be reliable, organized and ambitious. Do any of those three adjectives describe you?
I would like to think all of them do, but not all the time...

9) Random question: Look at the floor. Do you see carpet, rug, hard wood or tile?
Tile. Lots and lots of Fiestaware-breaking tile. Le sigh...
