Musical artist you would most like to have a meal with (alive or dead): Frank Sinatra Song Lyric that best describes you:

Though you might hear laughing, spinning, swinging

Madly across the Sun

It’s not aimed at anyone

It’s just escaping on the run

And but for the sky there are no fences facing

-“Mr. Tambourine Man” – Bob Dylan

Musical Artist you would most like to see perform (alive or dead) James Brown
