For the past two nights I’ve woken up at 2AM with The Living Years playing in my head, that cheesy Mike and the Mechanics tune that was #1 for about 79 weeks in Australia. Specifically the bit where the choir swoops in. There are few things that give me the heebie jeebies than a choir in a pop song… especially if it’s little kiddies singing. Whenever I hear Another Brick In The Wall I long to push the children off said wall…
(Actually I make an exception for the choir in Madonna’s Like A Prayer, that is a killer song!)
Anyway. I neglected to post about last week’s new Two Fit Chicks episode – Intuitive Eating II starring Christie of Honoring Health. She is extremely articulate and thoughtful on the topic and has had great success with changing her relationship with food. You can check it out over at the Two Fit Chicks website!
I was also a guest on The Because Show, an addictive podcast from L.A. where three friends meet weekly to chat about books and food and telly and life. I talked to the producer Jerilyn about book writing and life in Scotland. I also say “um” and “like” far too much and fail to disguise my ignorance re Scottish cashmere. You can check out The Because Show here.
So what’s your stance on choirs in pop songs? Do you have any irrational, petty hates you’d like to share? I also hate when people take something out of a microwave before the time is up then don’t reset it and/or leave the door open. BOO.
