I don't know about you all, but I love to sing in the shower. There is nothing better after just waking up than bellowing out the lyrics to a song and hearing your voice magnified by the echo of the shower walls. I think that a nicetouch would be if a shampoo bottle had the lyrics to a song that I could sing. It would have to be a well known tune I guess, but it's definitely doable. My current pick would have to be "Oh what a Beautiful Morning" by Richard rogers, but the possibilities are endless.

       You might be onto something there. I've seen body-gel bottles in the shape of microphones.

       As long as the lyrics aren't on the same bottle as the mike shaped one, otherwise how would you read them while using the mike?   

       One other issue (maybe):   

       "Oh, what a beautiful morrrrnnning! What were the words again? I'll just take a looksy..OW, mine eyes! Oh, Christ on a stick, mine eyes! They burn, the shampoo makes them burn!"

       "Oh-oh we're in trouble
Something's come along and it's burst our bubble"

       Gimme a head with hair, long beautiful hair
Shining, gleaming, steaming, flaxen, waxen
Give me down to there, hair!
Shoulder length, longer (hair!)
Here baby, there mama, Everywhere daddy daddy
HAIR!
  

       I love it!   

       Fits nicely with the idea of internet ordered, automatically personalized, shopping systems. So your IPOD tells Mall Wart what your favorite song is, and when you do your shopping (on line of course) your shampoo is delivered with those lyrics.   

       Of course, some songs are sort of a pointless: No one knows what Dylan is actually saying and then there are the really complex songs like "Peaches" by Dead Presidents of the United States: "Movin' to the country, gonna eat me a lot of peaches. Peaches come in a can, they were put there by a man In a factory downtown" Real big font on that one...

       Bob Dylan is a very good choice for this, he wasn't in tune to begin with so he's harder to ruin.
