Is Keith Olbermann less cool than this guy?

In 40-some years of sitting in Baptist services, including the height of the anything-with-a-beat-is-of-the-devil era, I have actually heard preachers refer to the Fats Domino classic, Blueberry Hill.  They expounded, mostly, on the innuendo of what “found my thrill” really meant…

However, not one, not one of them– even those who claimed the Beatles couldn’t sing, it was just primal screaming– referred to Blueberry Hill as “hard rock.”

Leave that to Keith Olbermann.  Oh, and by the way, nobody has used the term “hard rock” in about a decade…Fittingly, this bit of musical critique came in Olbermann’s “Oddball” segment, in which he played a genuinely funny and bizarre clip of Vladimir Putin doing his best to promote a new Domino Theory:

Talk about losing your thrill… if Keith wants to keep bragging about the relative youth of his audience (probably why it stings him so much when Jon Stewart mocks him) he needs to stay away from music topics.

And here is the great “Hard Rock” giant Fats Domino, just help scrub that from your mind.
