When I was a kid, it was ALL about clubs. You may remember my fairly recent post on the sleepover club that defined my childhood, for example. Well, what could be better than a sleepover club?! Um, LIP SYNC club — obviously!!
Every Friday morning at 8am, the middle school at Lambton Kingsway Elementary would convene for an obscene and wonderful celebration of pop music, which we somewhat misleadingly called Music Club. We worshiped at the altar of BSB, Spice Girls, All Saints, 98 Degrees and N SYNC, and bustin’ a serious move before math class was nothing short of heaven.
It came to my attention last week that the annually released Music Club highlight reels, as compiled by our dedicated gym teacher, are ALL ON YOUTUBE!!!!!!! I’m hardly exaggerating when I say that many of these costumes and dance sequences are burned on my brain and soul; and so these videos have opened a nostalgic can of worms, to say the very least. My stoic roommates bore witness to my high frequency freak-out and subsequent short-lived return to ‘Wannabe’, and I love them for it.
