A few days off blogging (quite eerily, I paused at precisely 666 posts. Shudder.) have interupted this series, and as I actually want to blog about life and love and Christmas too, needs must that we double up!
Take That: Never Forget
Take That were pretty much impossible to escape during my teens. Many an argument broke out in my dorm at boarding school over who was cuter / who was the most talented... the same arguments, I am sure, that were going on up and down the country! I liked some of The That's songs, but others I actively disliked. This track is my favourite of all their songs - a real pop gem. From the minute the brass and choristers start you know it's going to be good. When the beat kicks in? Epic.
Pop used to be good, y'all:
1994's entry is the purely for it's place as the first single I ever bought (on vinyl, people). I saved my pocket money, I did extra chores, I went without my issues of Just Seventeen magazine, all to but this "classic" track....
Mariah Carey - Without You
What can I say? From time to time, I *love* a good power ballad!
Mariah used to be so wholesome!
