Years ago, myself and a friend went out and decided to play a game where I (I'm NY born but Dublin bred) would pretend to be an up-and-coming singer-songwriter over from the states and my friend was my manager.
One thing led to another and we went back to hers and, once there, she wouldn't stop talking about the Kings of Leon, playing the music etc.
