I work with a bunch of silly people. There is always something random and humorous going on in one or more of the surrounding cubicles. Today – Nurf darts. One came flying at my face with a post-it note attached when I got back from lunch.
In the last few months, there’s been random, repetitive play of the 1980’s Rick Astley song “Never Gonna Give You Up” for no apparent reason. I never thought much of it besides wow, I haven’t heard that song in so long. It’s kinda catchy though…Plus, my coworkers tend to blare a wide mix of music, new and old, so hearing a little Rick Astley didn’t seem out of the ordinary.
But today, while perusing Digg for anything amusing, I came upon this article about “Rickrolling.” Apparently, random blaring of “Never Gonna Give You Up” is a national phenomenon these days! Who would’ve known? It’s kinda like The Hoff fad of the last few years.
So, I guess I’ll hop on the Rickroll bandwagon and share some of the fun!
One response to “Rick Astley, anyone?”
His music made me cringe first time around in 1987 so please spare us from a second coming of this Stock Aitken and Waterman manufactured garbage!
I liked the Spice Girls though and wish we were back in 1996.
