Today's Moment of Sheer WTF-itude

Patti Smith covers Debby Boone.   No, I'm not joking.  The woman who recorded Horses and Radio Ethiopia does a fantastic version of "You Light Up My Life."

The video comments contain one true groan-inducer.  In the pre-song interview Smith says that her favorite singers are Mick Jagger and Maria Callas. This leads one Youtube fan, Hollypop3000, to ask the eternal question:
who did she say her favorite singer was maria collis? who is that
As an ardent classical music fan, this question made me feel like an obstetrician reading the notorious Internet meme "how is babby formed? how girl get pragnent?"
