Okay guys you probably have to be an Adam fan to think it will be Epic - we get that... I think Macho described it pretty accurately when he said Adam will be in it!!! :-) That alone makes it almost Epic and then Adam is performing his song and looking gorgeous as well...that could push it right over the top into EPIC!!! LOL - maybe we are a little easy to please when it comes to Adam!!
Have you guys seen the 9 minute version of Gaga and Beyonce's video - that thing is just crazy!!
WTH, hey guys (and Darwin) the EPIC discussion was just as whacked as the Adam's nose discussion. (LOL)
Real Definition of EPIC: (From Latin epicus, from Greek epikos) 1. An extended narrative poem in elevated or dignified language, celebrating the feats of a legendary or traditional hero. 2. A literary or dramatic composition that resembles an extended narrative poem celebrating heroic feats. Example: "Beowulf' was an Anglo-Saxon epic.
EPIC Definition From the Urban (Slang) Dictionary: (The way Adam was using it)
1. Being unusually large, powerful or wonderful. On a grander scale than the modified word would otherwise imply. Popular synonyms: Massive, Huge, Incredible, Awesome Example: "Hey man, that bungee jump was EPIC!"
2. (adjective) Totally Awesome or otherwise really positive. Can be used to refer to anything but is usually referring to a particular event or action. The most common usages are "epic win" or "epic failure," and some prefer to type it in all caps. Occasionally people use the phrase "Epic ___" as a stand-alone sentence or phrase, always following a story about something considered Epic. Example: "He's a blackbelt in karate, so when this bleep came up to him, he totally kicked the dude's bleep. You should have been there, man, it was bleepin' EPIC."
This link to Q102 to rate IIHY also has a link to listen to IIHY. If you listen to it (and you don't have to listen to vote), you will discover it's not exactly the same as the song on the album. It's the radio cut version. Many songs on albums are too long for radio airplay, so they cut them before they release them. That's what they did with IIHY.
M. Golden, I am wondering if the radio stations might get another version of IIHY than what is on the album. I never hear him sing that "diggety do" part of the song when he performs it live. I wonder if that is a little too pop for airplay? Just wondering.
S. Andrews, I think that many songs have an album version and a radio version due to the length of the song. I guess they cut the parts out that they feel are not that good for radio airplay. At least with Adam's songs, they don't have to change or bleep out any four letter words as they do with so many other songs.
Is anyone else having a problem with the Ryan Seacrest site for voting for WWFM for adult top 40 and adding in a request for IIHY? When I pull up this site (and I have tried it from a couple different places - Planet Fierce, the web address posted on the Amazon discussion etc.) What I get is a listing of the top 40 to vote for on the right and the heading Adult top 40 on the right with no listings under for voting. All it says is The Script was #1 before. Anybody have a solution for this or any idea what is going on???

M. Golden--just listened to IIHY on Q102 voting site--trying to figure out the difference between that and the album. I really thought he would cut out the diggity do part but that wasn't it. Is it the end part, are you saying it is shorter?
M. Golden, I thought Adam was setting himself up for some kind of backlash from someone with that tweet about "Let's blow this bleep up!! " We know he doesn't mean he wants his fans to harass the DJ's but some of his detractors would take it that way.
