So my review of Glee wasn’t all that great. And yet I keep watching it. I realize the show is somewhat tongue-in-cheek and it’s supposed to be slightly-over-the-top.
I finally downloaded Journey’s Greatest Hits album from iTunes. It wasn’t just because of Glee. I’d been planning to for a long time, but hadn’t gotten around to it (being the world’s greatest procrastinator). The show just gave me that added push.
And also, may I say, this show is probably going to drive me nuts. Even before I downloaded the album, I couldn’t get “Don’t Stop Now” out of my head. And when I finally did, what popped in? “You’re the One that I Want.” “Rehab” probably would have, too, except I’d never heard it before. (You know, being an old fogie and all.)
The best news? I’d been thinking about joining a Sweet Adelines’ chorus for about 2 years. I was all set to last year when I broke my foot. But I checked the schedule and now seems to be a good time. Lots of rehearsals before their next performance.
It’s interesting; if you’d asked me what I’d be if I could do anything I wanted, most of my life I’d have said an actor. (Not for the fame. I just love the craft.) But you know what gives me the greatest joy? Singing. Go figure.
