Ding! I Win!

ETA: DING!!! I win!   Actually, that poster at Idol Forums wins (thank yeewww!).  Folks who are way ahead of me at this guessing game are telling me that…

“It Had to Be You” is the correct guess.

Ok, I’ll Play

I think I’m going to throw my hat into the Elliott Yamin song choice guessing game.  The fourth clue is said to be the most important.  In fact, I’m reading around the boards that the first three clues may point to a prior song choice (Elliott changed his song choice).  In which case, the fourth clue is the only one that matters.

  • Fourth hint: Sure it is a love song, sung by one of the “old” greatest! love you, and you have to wait 

Both the phrase  highlighted and the font color are supposed to be important.  These lyrics from “It Had to Be You” were posted at Idol Forums this morning:

It must have been something lovers call fate
Kept me saying: “I have to wait”
I saw them all, just couldn’t fall ’til we met

It had to be you, it had to be you
I wandered around, and finally found the somebody who
Could make me be true, could make me be blue
And even be glad, just to be sad thinking of you

DISCUSS!  Remember, I’m just playing along.  I’ve got no inside information at this point…
