Yesterday I had big plans to finally get to my huge mounds of laundry … but, alas, it wasn’t meant to be. A visit to Amoeba Records in Hollywood, CA awakened an intense love that I had long forgotten. While perusing the 12″ singles bin, I came upon a few amazing vinyl records by Paula Abdul. The records I found were ones that I already own … but I was reminded by how much I LOVE Paula’s music. Folks, I know that Paula Abdul isn’t loved like she used to be in her hey day but when she was on the music scene, she ruled the world. I’ve been listening to her singles all night and all day today and let me tell you, her brand of pop music still holds up today.
I’m not sure why but I hooked up my little iPod Nano to my Deadmau5 portable speakers and have just been playing all of Paula’s singles, remixes and album tracks for hours — particularly her songs Cold Hearted, Vibeology and Knocked Out …
… and of course her megahits Straight Up, Rush Rush, (It’s Just) The Way That You Love Me, The Promise of a New Day and on and on and on. I don’t think the world realizes how amazing Paula’s music is … truly. Well, even if others don’t … I do … and I’m relishing in it all.
Yes, I was a bit obsessed back in the early 90’s, clearly some of that obsession is coming back ;)
Not sure about my plans for today (tho, I suspect I will end up getting to my laundry … finally). I have a doctor’s appointment this afternoon then … who knows. Perhaps I’ll organize a Paula Abdul dance party here at my home. Any takers?0
