There are a few things that I’ve not quite gotten round to telling the boyfriend yet.
- I know all the dance routine to “Could It Be Magic” by Take That
- When I was a teenager, I used to want to be Buffy. Like, style wise. I could do without the staking vampires thing, thank you very much.
- I had a bit of an obsession with Busted back in my second year of Uni.
(OK, so there are others, but I’m not going to tell you lot them just yet!)
For that third one, I fully blame my friend Jackie. We met via Livejournal in my second year at uni, sharing loves of crap music, dodgy dancing and wine and it just so happened that she was in some of my modules (My degree was so backwards, I did third year modules in second year, and second year modules in fourth year. Is it any wonder no one understands what Business Finance is, when even Aber Uni don’t know?
I was not quite heartbroken when Busted split up, but I was disappointed that there would be no more jump kicks by the band with three guitarists and not much else. Sorry McFly, I do love you, but at the time, you were just that odd little band who did “5 Colours In Her Hair”. We lay the blame for the split with Charlie – that Fightstar band would never amount to much anyway.
However, when Jackie tweeted at me that Busted were possibly going to get back together, I let out a little *squee* of excitement. And of course, that meant watching this brilliant montage from Popworld (Oh SIMON.) Lets face it, everyone loves a montage, and this one features stupid giggles, two eggs and “Sleeping With The Light On” performed on a plastic guitar, tambourine and kazoo.
Since of course this isn’t just one song, I thought I’d pop the video for “What I Go To School For” here. You know you love to sing along.
I’m off to find what Busted I have on my Singstar discs. And to do THE JUMP.
Ohhh, Busted! I’m still gutted that that’s over. They had so much potential! Damn you, Charlie Simpson!
The Girl says
Aaah I never loved the Busted but I did have a secret love for Charlie. And then one day he asked me where he had to go to buy his tickets when I was in the Filmworks in Manchester and I nearly peed my pants. GORGEOUS in real life.
Man I miss Popworld. Sometimes I don’t know how I get through life without it. And now Simon isn’t even on Never Mind the Buzzcocks – I need my Amstell fix!

I used to be totally in love with Busted, and even more so with McFly! My friend’s Dad worked for ITV so we got to meet them lots in a really embarrassingly fan girl way.
