    Cool What would your orchids' theme song be?

    I've always attributed human characteristics to my plants... and occasionally when one is particularly happy (or sad), I'll imagine it singing some sort of tune to express its situation. So just for the sake of amusement, if your orchids could sing, what would be their theme song?

    (If none of the answers fit, share your own!)

    How about "Simply Irresistible". I'm thinking of the line "She's so fine, there's no tellin' where the money went". My family probably thinks it should be the Patsy Cline standard, "Crazy".

    Mabuhay!

    For you, there's nothing I can't do, And never will I ever go, Forever's not enough to love you so, But if forever ends one day, I promise you
    I'll stay to show you that my love will never end. And if forever's not enough for me to love you I'd spend another lifetime baby,
    If you ask me to There's nothing I won't do Forever's not enough to love you so And if forever's not enough for me to love you I'd spend another lifetime baby, If you ask me to There's nothing I won't do Forever's not enough for me to love you so.

    Its been a tough time for my orchids lately. Sadly, some have Climbed the Stairway to Heaven, but the rest are singing "Ah, Ah Ah Ah, Stayin' Alive, Stayin' Alive" right now.

    Mine would have to be 'Patience' by Take That. No need to explain why.
