    It's not a memory about anything in my life, but at the end of the first episode of Freaks and Geeks (the best television show ever), all the students were dancing to "Come Sail Away" by Styx, a song I have loathed deeply for close to thirty years. Now whenever I hear it, it makes me flash on all that joyful geek dancing and makes me feel all happy inside. I guess I can just be grateful that they didn't play "We Built This City on Rock & Roll".

    I don't know, Rosie...are you sure? Remember, the 70's also gave us things like "Disco Duck" and "Blinded By The Light"

    Anything that Britney Spears ever "sang" but in particular "Oops, I did it again". *shudder*

    I've been listening to the local soft rock station- don't ask me why, I honestly don't know what's come over me- and one of their staples is "My Everything" by 98. The melody is boring, the lyrics are dumb, and there's a boy-band style "woo" inexplicably thrown in there near the end.

    Ah, Freaks and Geeks! SUCH a good show. I can't believe it was cancelled after just one season. You're right, the scene you described does alter your perception of "Come Sail Away". Up until that point, I'd just think "Eric Cartman" whenever I heard that song.

    I need to watch Freaks and Geeks again. Did you know it's available on DVD now?

    Know it? I bought it the week it came out and made Mr. Rattus watch it with me one entire disc at a time for six consecutive Saturdays . He loved it as much as I do, which is amazing as he never watches tv. He said it played more like a movie, though, and I think that he's right about that.

    I happen to like Blinded by the Light, but well, Disco Duck. Hmm, I'd take that over you light up my life. Even typing the name of that song makes me want to hurl.


    I forgot about We built this city on Rock and Roll. GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    Wildfire is another one. "She ran calling Wildfire" Off to go vomit now.
    My Chevy Van
    Afternoon Delight
    Brandy
    and the Pina Colada song. UGH!


    All equally bad
