Last night was the Brit Awards. Last night was the first time in a long time I didn’t watch the Brit Awards. I’ve been a big fan of the Brits since Take That were a five piece the first time around, and have watched most shows since the early 90’s.
When I was younger, I’d watch the Brits with my mum, then run to the phone in the breaks (because this was the days before mobile phones and IM and even before we had the Internet at home) to discuss the show with my friends.
As time has gone on, we’ve discussed the show via text, IM and lately, Twitter. I don’t need to tell you that Twitter makes shows more interesting.
One of the reasons I didn’t watch the Brits last night was because they’re just not as fun anymore. Remember when Robbie challenged Liam to a fight?
When Jarvis tried to moon Jacko?
Random stage invasions and politicians trying to be cool?
Perhaps linked to the lack of shenanigans, music this year has been quite dull. I can’t remember the last time I bought an album or even a single thats in the charts. I don’t listen to Radio 1 that much any more. I prefer Absolute Radio 00’s, which plays all the same sort of music I’ve been listening to in the past decade.
(I’m just going pop this video of Take That doing “Back for Good” at the 1995 awards, because – well, I never need a reason to post videos of Take That do I?)
What are you listening to at the moment?
