So Eileen had a contest, and I won a prize through sheer perseverance, basically. My prize: an iTunes song of my choosing.
The thing is, I've wanted to get this song for months, but I've held off - partly because I'm usually at work when the urge to listen to it strikes, and partly because I figured I could find the whole album used somewhere for the price of the iTunes song. It seems like that kind of album.
But now the song is mine, and I never have to go another day without listening to "Everything She Wants" by Wham!
So here is a gift for you, gentle reader. In the long, dark days B.C. (before the contest), I would content myself with watching the video of this song. I present that video to you in all its awesomely '80s glory.
A few points:
- George Michael with his crazy lion's mane!
- Poor Andrew Ridgeley (whom I've looked up like 8 times and still had to pull up Wikipedia to remember his last name) only gets face time when he's singing "Ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah, a-whoa-oh, a-whoa-oh, doo-doo-doo LA LA LA LA-LA!" Already it was clear what was going to happen to him.
- During that instrumental break in the middle, we get this awesome scene - George in bed with a woman, looking all hurt and scared, like a lost puppy. Poor George Michael!
- MEGA BACKFLIP ACTION!
