But first...Did anyone watch that show Hit Me Baby One More Time last night? OMG, what happened to all those people? The basis of the show is that old, fat, formerly good-looking and previously famous bands and singers come on tv, do one of their own songs and then a cover of a current song. Then the studio audience votes on who was the best and the winner gets $50,000 for their charity.
Loverboy sucked. I can't believe they still do 100 shows a year and people pay to see them. And to choose to do a cover of "Hero" by Enrique? Are you mad? Flock of Seagulls were decent on their own song, but their cover song (something by Ryan Cabrera) sucked. Cece Penniston was good; her voice still sounds strong. Tiffany, I just dislike because she recently posed for Playboy. As a feminist, I think women with talent (which she has - her voice sounded pretty good) shouldn't sell their bodies for success. It takes away your credibility. Not that a former big-haired mallrat had any credibility to begin with, I suppose. And she still, actually, has big hair. But you get my point.
I was happy that Arrested Development won, mostly because I thought they were the best last night, but partially because I saw them in concert back in the day ("the day" being maybe 1994 or so) and they were great back then. Its on again next week, with one of my favorite 80's bands, The Motels, plus The Knack, Tommy Tutone (you know, 867-5309), and 2 other bands I can't remember.
And now...found this over at Plum Crazy Millersville - go here to try it yourself! Cool!
