The song is Laid by James.

The top 5 companies:
Wal-Mart
GE
Exxon
Microsoft
Google

Probably not right since i don't have any foreigners. And I should have talked with Warren Buffet, but I figure I'm in the ballpark.

here is my guess...
exxon-mobil
phillips-conoco
walmart
bp
siemens
ibm
bank of america
csrb (credit suisse first boston)
morgan stanley
wells fargo

i think that is 10; hopefully i got some of them.

alright, i had to look up the title on amazon.com, but i knew that it was on the "american wedding" soundtrack and i had it in my itunes...so without further ado, the song is "laid"

It's Friday. Good Friday. It's almost 12:30. I finished all my work for the day about 2 hours ago. I have to be here until 5, though. This has nothing to do with the trivia. I don't have any idea who the big companies are. I did know the song was by James, but I never would have come up with Laid. I think after work today I may go buy a new bike helmet. My old one doesn't fit right and I left it by the radiator and it's a little melted/warped. I'm thinking about getting one of those skate type helmets because I like the way the look better than traditional bike helmets. I wonder what the difference is. Someone told me that they are really hot. I don't mind a good head sweat. I do, however, mind not being able to hear. I think some of them may cover up your ears. Maybe I'm thinking of something else. I have to be able to hear what's going on around me. I also mind my skull crcking open. Well, I'm off to lunch. Maybe I'll stop by the local bike shop.

P.S. I never got a chance to return that sweater Lois gave me for Christmas. Umm, I left the receipt on top of my bureau. I'm probably over the thirty day return limit but umm… I'm sure if you make a fuss they'll at least give you a store credit or something. Umm.. It's actually not a horrible sweater. It's... It's just I can't imagine when I would ever wear it you know? Oh I also left a button on the bureau. I'm not sure what it goes to, but I can never bring myself to throw a button away. I know that as soon as I do I'll find the garment it goes to and then it'll… Wait a minute, could it be from the sweater? Did that sweater have buttons? Hmm… Well I should wrap this up before I start to ramble. Again, goodbye forever.

P.P.S. You know, it might be a little chilly in London, I'm actually going to take the sweater.
