Remember when I told you I got a check from BMG when Mili Vanili turned out to be a fake?
Blame it on the Rain is still an awesome song but apparently someone else sang it. Whatever.(in order to find this link I just had to peruse YouTube and of course I listened to the whole song so yeah I stand by my earlier statement.)
Where am I going with this? Good question.
BuzzFeed had a list today that made me think of this.
Remember in the back of your Teen magazine there was that little tear out? For a while it was ten cassettes for a penny and then in switched to ten albums for the price of one.
Of course then you were trapped in some album of the week nightmare and if you didn't pay attention some guy from BMG was going to come a knocking looking for his money regardless of whether you wanted the latest release from lil bow wow or not.
I'm old enough that the first time I got taken with this scam it was still cassettes.
Yeah I'm old. Get over it!
I was still trying to figure out how to be cool though so my albums were all classic rock even though I didn't know how to spell Lynyrd Skynyrd. Now despite having already lived through this mail order nightmare once I did fall for it again when I switched over to CD's.
Today's BuzzFeed's list made me smile although by my count I only had 5 of the 25 albums on it.
Which 5 you may ask?
I'm not telling. I've already said too much about my questionable taste in music.
