You, You’re Such A Big Star To Me

As you read this, I should be in Chester with these ladies:

But I’m not. I’m still in Bristol. I was meant to travel up to Chester today, go to see Take That in Manchester tomorrow and come back on Sunday with no voice from squealing like the teen pop fan I still secretly am.

Alex was supposed to be back from Las Vegas yesterday, but then his boss asked him to go up to Seattle for a few days for meetings. I cancelled my trip, and he extended his to include a few days in San Francisco. Nice for some.

So instead of happy faces like this:

(Helen, Rach and I after the comeback tour in 2006 – can’t believe it’s 5 years!)

I shall instead be moping about, doing some Singstar (because its awesome) and watching Star Stories which we like to quote along.

“80 million quid! And a pie!”

Here are a few of my favourite videos – not necessarily my favourite songs!


Do What U Like
Sadly its not the version that ends with their bums being mopped down with jelly, but the amazing dance moves, ridiculous amounts of flesh combined with leather, studs and fringing and the strange video makes this one of my favourite videos ever. It’s so awful!


Shine
If anyone can listen to this song and not think of Morrisons, you are a better person than I am. (Does prove it’s a good advertising campaign though, brand recognition from a song that’s nothing to do with the product)


Never Forget
This had to be in the list. This isn’t the proper video, but rather the first time they sang it live with Robbie for Children in Need. I get tear-y every time I watch it.

What’s your favourite song?

Brit Awards

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?
