You mean the person who wrote this?

"The Rose"

Some say love, it is a river
That drowns the tender reed.
Some say love, it is a razor
That leaves your soul to bleed.
Some say love, it is a hunger,
An endless aching need.
I say love, it is a flower,
And you its only seed.

It's the heart afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance.
It's the dream afraid of waking
That never takes the chance.
It's the one who won't be taken,
Who cannot seem to give,
And the soul afraid of dyin'
That never learns to live.

When the night has been too lonely
And the road has been too long,
And you think that love is only
For the lucky and the strong,
Just remember in the winter
Far beneath the bitter snows
Lies the seed that with the sun's love
In the spring becomes the rose.

Global doomsday device all right. Al Yankovitch really flubbed when he parodied "Achy Breaky Heart" instead of this one.

Darn. Taylor was my second choice. But Taylor should have been my first choice because now that I think about it Beyonce can either write a song nor sing one. I just read "doomsday device" and Beyonce was the first thing that popped into my mind.

Ivo Shandor: worlddan: Beyonce?

You're both wrong, it's obviously Coldplay.

The pitch:

An aging popstar, who peaked 3 albums ago (played by Faith Hill) has tired of the grind.  Spoiled on the private jets and 4 page tour riders before sold-out arena shows of her yesteryears, she now argues with her tour manager who's trying to book her into either the state fair circuit, or private gigs for rich sheiks.  Upon learning that the state fairs only want her to play songs from 20 years ago, she decides to try a private show.  At the 4th birthday party for the second son of the Sultan of Fakestan, her pyrotechnics unwittingly trigger a weaponized aerosol that the Sultan's enemies - The Fake Swords of Jesus - are trying to deploy.  The popstar narrowily escapes; however, only the leader of The Fake Swords of Jesus survives.  Upon returning to America, our popstar discovers that she feels more bloated than normal.  Her private physician, who just happens to be a former molecular biologist for the Army, gives her the bad news:  whatever she was exposed to in Fakestan is causing her atoms to begin to fuse, and once they reach a critical mass, the resultant thermonuclear explosion will dwarf anything the world has seen.  He's desparately trying to find a cure, but for now, the only thing that will disrupt the fusions is daily, internal, harmonic vibrations - the kind that can only come from singing.  In order to save herself - and the world - she must go back on tour.  As our reluctant heroine struggles through unreliable tour buses, and competitions with pig callers, she re-learns the joys of performing, and finds an unlikely love along the way with the gritty bus mechanic who makes sure that no matter the malfunction, he will get her to the next state fair.  The film comes to a rousing conclusion at the Waxahachie County Fair as the CIA, the leader of The Fake Swords of Jesus, and her agent - who just signed her to a 4 month residency in Las Vegas - all converge.  It's tentatively titled, "Sing Your Heart Out," and it's scheduled for a mid-summer 2016 release.

They shouldn't have corrected the bug!  Make it a side feature, and let it generate more random summeries for all to enjoy!
