Anyone following The Sing Off on telly? It's on all week on NBC. It's a competition similar to American Idol only the competitors are a capella groups. This show was made for me.
Firstly: it's all about singing
Second: Ben Folds is a judge (*sigh*)
Third: The group called the Bubs include like 15 guys that look like they sport pocket protectors. So freaking cute!
Yup...made for me.
Last night the groups had to perform guilty pleasure songs. I don't really believe in the term guilty pleasure when it comes to music. I love what I love and I really don't care what YOU think. No guilty here. Judge away. Yeah, I'm rocking out to Hanson's Mmmbop, so what?
I own New Kids on The Block's greatest hits.....and I like it.
Anyway I digress...focus...focus....one of the groups did George Micheal Freedom 90. Is this really considered a guilty pleasure?? I mean I know Georgie got caught in a few tangles with the law but I don't hold it against him. He makes some pretty awesome music. He has a CRAZY vocal range and have you ever seen that man perform??? He gets down to his own music with a passion. It's pretty intense to watch. I love, love, love George Micheal.
George is actually the reason I met my, now, husband. I was working at a Movie shop called Suncoast. The sister store was a music shop called Sam Goody-where my Husband was working at the time. I was reading the upcoming releases for the coming months and I noticed that week George Micheal's Greatest Hits was released. It was a two disc set AND there was a DVD as well. I was freaking out!! Did I mention I love, love, love George Micheal?? Well I do, so I called down to Sam Goody and Rob answered the phone. I explained that I NEEDED that George Micheal cd. After placing me on hold he returned to tell me that they had two copies of the double set. I was frantic!! I could not leave work until my shift was over. I explained this to him and asked if he could hold it behind the counter for me. He laughed and sarcastically asked if I really thought that the double set of George Michael was going to sell out before I arrived..
From that day on I always got poked fun because of my love for George.
Also, FYI, I still own that double set, I still listen to it often and I also purchased the DVD (which is amazing). I even added that DVD to the Suncoast playlist so while I was working I got to listen/watch to George at work. It remained on our playlist for three years. A few of the other managers got so sick of me playing it that they tried to damage it out and hide it in the damage box so I wouldn't notice it. I always found it and put it back. muwahahaha. I'm sure there was a small celebration when I quit that job.
