Edge of Glory and Footloose

30 Day Song Challenge, Day 12: A Song From A Band I Hate
     Confession time: I'm not a fan of Lady Gaga (yes, I know, she's not a band). Some of her songs are great, some are catchy, and some plain annoy the crap out of me. Power to her for being her crazy and very individual self- it's just not my thing. However, I do LOVE this song (and like all my mixed feelings towards her, I HATE the video).

Crush of the Week:
     I saw the new Footloose last night. I was four when the first came out, so it wasn't exactly part of my childhood. Meaning, I'm not one of those people who were all aghast about a remake. Kevin Bacon did a good job back then, but why not let someone else try?
     I loved the movie. It made me want to get up and dance. I thought it was clever that they used a lot of the same music from the original but remixed it. (For example, you know that song "I Need a Hero"? In the movie its sung very slow- loved it.) The dancing was fun. Julianne Hough did a great job as the wild preachers daughter. And Ren (Kenny Wormald) was sweet, funny, sarcastic, and a great dancer. So yes, he's my crush of the week. Sort of.
     I say sort of because there was someone else who totally STOLE the whole movie. He was hilarious. HILARIOUS. Everything out of his mouth was funny. Add to that his hic name (Willard), his hic overalls, and his really bad dancing- and you've got a recipe for... well, he's not all that cute really, but go see the movie and you'll see what makes him so awesome.

There were hardly any pics of Miles Teller as Willard- this is the best one I could find


  1. I'm with you on the Footloose thing. It wasn't a huge part of my childhood either, so I'm not bugged about the remake. I think I saw the original once, but I don't really remember it. Glad you liked the new one, I can't wait to see it!

  2. Speaking of Houghs - I still think you should make Derek crush of the week. He's also the best choreographer on dwts. He should choreograph for sytycd (too many long titles)

  3. I'm so glad you liked the movie, I've been on the fence about seeing it. Now I will definitely check it out :)

  4. It was a gooder :) I love the music in the movie. Seriously I was having childhood flashbacks as I heard the music. As a kid there was a lot of lip syncing and dancing to the Footloose music. My Barbies danced A LOT to the music as well ha ha!! Such good memories :)

  5. I saw the original, but I haven't seen the new one yet. I might check it out, now that I hear it's good.
