I've always always wanted to see Steve Vai play this. Now that I've found it, I'm sharing it with you all. Guitarists will take delight in identifying his many technical licks and tricks, and non-guitarists will hopefully get the swept-away feeling I get when hearing this song.
Today I, well we went to my favourite restaurant (well not favourite but it has fond memories) Triple 3 at Meritus Mandarin.
Me with the sumptous spread
It was my bro's birthday, well actually its tomorrow, or rather today, since it's 1am. But we decided on Saturday to celebrate for some reason.
When the three house musicians arrived, after they'd played the birthday song (we suggested that it should be called the Bday Restaurant since just about every table they went to had a birthday person). They ended... well we ended up hearing Happy Birthday like 10 times. Anyhoo after they finished our Happy Birthday, it fell upon me to choose a song, and I said Estrellita. First thing only the guy screwed up the intro solo, but I think only I noticed because it wasn't all that glaring a mistake but I flinched anyway. Then after that all three of them screwed up the harmonising. They had a little trick though, which was start soft then get louder when they were sure they harmonised correctly. So its like Estrelliiiiiitaaa del lejaaaaAAAAAA-no cieeeeee-looooo... I was like give up...
Anyway when I'd made my round I realised it wasn't all that big a spread, but they provided alot of carbo stuff, so we were very quickly full without much choice. My poor mom missed out on the fabulous ice cream because she made a mistake and overloaded on the equally good chocolates. Such a waste. I had ice cream on a waffle which was basically chocolate overload... Melted chocolate, then mini oreos, then chocolate sauce, then chocolate shavings, then chocolate ice cream, topped with almonds. My God it was darn sinful.

Apparently my mom knows how to act cute too
