The Wham! Mystery

January 28, 2008

There’s something that’s been bugging me for a while now and I thought it worthy of blog status.

I joined this thing called Last.fm last week. 

Good things about Last.fm:

  • It tells you who you’ve been listening to most, etc.. and I’m a fan of pointless stats and stalking myself. 
  • You can check your friends pages and get new music ideas
  • Hopefully your pals can see when you’re playing miserable/angry music and know that you’re feeling shite so either must be left alone, dragged out for night of fun and frolics or consoled with chocolate.  Just thought though, happy music can sometimes be played in times of crisis, so it’s maybe best not to take that as gospel

Bad things about Last.fm:

  • You feel like you can’t listen to Rihanna Umbrella as many times as you’d like to because, even though you love that song and are a bit obsessed with the dance in the video, everyone else thinks it’s a bit crap and you’re a bit embarrassed that you like it

Anyway,

So the point of my blog is this…

even though I never play it (I SWEAR!) for some reason my 5th most-played tune is Wham! Wake me up before you go go.   Whyyyyy?  I don’t understand.  I spend so long downloading/uploading my tunes, playing my favourite people, putting together interesting playlists.

Why pick on me Last.fm?  What have I ever done to you?  People are going to see my page and think ‘jeeeeez, she must really like that Wham! song. Sad cow’.  It could affect my life.  My future friendships.  My chance of ever having children.

 One of the reasons i’m so confused is because for some reason it is 2 above The Salmon Dance by the Chemical Brothers.  My flatmate is obsessed with the fishy song and makes me play it over and over.  So why, therefore, when I never listen to Wake me up before you go go, is Last.fm still telling me i’ve played it 3 more times than Sammy the Salmon??

 Confused.com? You bet I am.

 All I can say is – people, please don’t judge me.  I think elves are doing it when i’m not around. Sneaky wee buggers.
