Phil had a song or two or three percolating in his head that if you wudda chose Phil wudda awarded you a $50 gift certificate to an unchained or small chain restaurant within 100 km of your mailing address or a city of Phil’s selection no matter how any of your horses ran. Phil gave you a hint: This song may have appeared on Holybull.ca before; it might even have been in a contest post or it might be just floating around unchained to the ground and not in Phil’s head yet. And it’s not The Rose or Ooh Las Vegas or Under Pressure or Good Vibrations or Hard Sun or Mess We’re in or Girl or In the Air Tonight or Redemption Song or any other song that comes easily to mind. Remember that Phil’s favourite pitch is a hard breaking curve and even Crazy, Sign of the Times and some country artists have appeared.
One of those Songs was Tougher Than The Rest, the names of the others will be withheld to protect the innocent.
