Man in the Mirror

I thought Flashback Fridays were back in full swing, but my old photos are in the kids room and I tend to blog while they're napping. So since my flashback plans for the day are thwarted once again, here's something you might not know about Spencer.

OK, I didn't know it either until last night. The passing of the King of Pop brought out a whole new side of my husband. Apparently, he's a closet Michael Jackson fan. The radio station we were listening to last night was playing only his music and song after song, Spencer knew every word. And all this time he's been forcing his ghastly country music on my innocent ears when we could have been listening to Michael Jackson. (Though Michael Jackson is only a small step better than country.)

And when I was still teasing Spencer about it this morning, his comment was, "Come on. Who hasn't put on a white glove and tried to moon walk?" When I laughed, he tried to play it cool like he was joking, but I'm pretty sure he's tried.

Sorry babe for exposing you over the world wide web. Your secret's out. But it makes you even cuter.

"Ghastly Country Music"? Ghastly? You are dead to me!

That is my fav MJ song- we put in our MJ greatest hits CD in the van and haven't stopped listening to it- i have mixed feelings about him, but his music is one that lives on and on especially for me in my youth, and Dana is for sure a huge fan...our kids are new lovers of it too!

Good for you Spencer!! I was a huge Michael Jackson fan back in the day. Too bad his life went so haywire because it made it hard to even say you were a fan of his old music.

That's awesome! Rich's family tells a story that when he was little he went around with just one glove on for quite a while a la Michael Jackson :)
I think Spencer and I might have similar musical tastes ;)

You guys totally make me laugh. 'Man in the Mirror' makes me think of us roomies driving to Bear Lake and Heidi singing at the top of her lungs and laughing her cute laugh. Believe it or not I have a lot of great memories listening to his songs.

I have to say it as well,
ghasly country music?

I am a huge country music fan. I can remember my parent singing along to it and I used to say I hated it, but I would secretly sing all the words to every song in my head. I'm a fan.

Shocking news about MJ though. He had a sad ending.

I agree with many... ghast;y country music!! You did not say that! I'm not a huge MJ fan, but he had some good jams! My husband, however, also knows about every word to every song of his.

Funny story!

Love it! I am glad that my Randi is not the only one who knows all the lyrics by heart! Hey, MJ was my age, and I know plenty myself. And kudos to a fellow country fan!!

Although there are some classic country music songs ("Live like you were dying" "One boy, one girl", "Amazed") I agree fully with your gastly country music comment. I can't get past the depressing side of it or the twangy side. I mean, honestly, who sings about a crush on an English teacher..."Oh I love you period. Do you love me question mark? Please, please exclamation point! I want to hold you in parenthasis." just sayin...

I can totally picture Spencer doing the moon walk with one white glove!

I miss you guys!!!
