The Fray's Valentine's Day songwriting challenge

Yes, this is another Fray-related item, the last one this week for sure (and hopefully the last for a while -- unless, of course, the band is number one on Billboard again next week; God help us). Anyhow, we'll keep this brief. Considering our proximity to Valentine's day, sharing this link just seemed apropos: The folks at the U.K.-based Q magazine, "scrambled the masters of radio-friendly melancholia to write and record a brand-new song expecially for Valentine's Day, in the space of just 24 hours." Slade and company responded to the challenge with a brand-new track titled "Be the One," which you can listen to on the magazine's website and read all about in the next issue.
