True Love Never Dies and Music Snobs


So, for those of you who know me, (and I'm guessing most of you do since you've found my little corner of the world), it will come as no surprise that I still love The New Kids on the Block. I have purchased all three cd's within the past 10 years; "I'll Be Loving You Forever" was played at my wedding reception, and Joey McIntyre is STILL cute. I am OVERJOYED to see this. Some of you will probably be laughing; I am sure that when Ben reads this He will roll his eyes and my dear husband, Brent, will be wondering again, what he has gotten himself into. When I think about NKOTB it makes me smile; they made happy music. There is something to be said about music that just makes you feel good. A lot of people look down on this kind of music; these people are music snobs who feel there is no place in this world for the music played on the radio. Their taste in music is so superior, they often refer to it as having a "refined pallette". Music snobs have strong feelings about people being "artists". It is not enough to sing so well that you bring people to tears. For a music snob it would only be enough if you wrote the song, on a guitar made from a tree that you grew in your yard, that was originally bought at an "organic tree farm". I am sorry if you are a music snobem. You are missing out on truly FANTASTIC stuff, like Air Supply, Journey, REO Speedwagon, NKOTB. Cheesey pop music is SO great, I am literally at a loss for words to appropriately describe it.

How you can blog about cheesy pop music and not mention Duran Duran is beyond me. Seriously, what kind of 80s-child are you, anyway?

If I end up with "Hangin' Tough" stuck in my head all night, rest assured I will find a way to pay you back. :)

Wow. You really are sick. Is that picture for real? If I spent the rest of my life trying to come up with the queerest image imaginable, I could never top that picture.
