You know, every once in a while when nothing better is on, turning VH1 Classic on seems like a good idea. But I just got Pump Up The Jam followed by UB40's version of Can't Help Falling in Love with a Richard Marx chaser. So now I'm hysterically blind, hysterically crying for what they did to Elvis, and hysterically vomiting. And the Marx comes one day after hearing Rick Astley's Together Forever in Ralph's. Only in Hollywood does it briefly cross your mind that Astley's current gig might actually be sitting in a booth somewhere in the store singing his old hits. Or, alternately, possibly filling in on Register 7. It was similar to the time I suddenly realized that a Carpenters song was on the muzak in a Pittsburgh supermarket, and I wondered if we were all being subliminally reminded to eat.
