PULEASSSSE tell me someone remembers the faux pop sensation known as 2Ge+her (yes that is spelled with a plus sign) made
famous semi one minute wonder-y by those crazy folks at MTV? During the boy band craze MTV thought hey would jump on the trend and make a movie about this made up boy band and all its glory. Turns out, the songs were quite catchy, while being awesomely ridiculous all at the same time. I am embarrassed to admit that sophomore year in HIGH SCHOOL I had some of these songs on a cd that I would listen to in my car. OMG. I didn’t get my license till I was a junior, that means I had this cd JUNIOR year. Pretend you heard none of that.
Anyway, some of their greatest hits included numbers such as
“I Know My Calculus” (U+Me=us)….
“Say it, Don’t Spray it”
“Before We Say Goodbye…” (favorite line of this song you ask? After breaking up… “Can I still have sex with you?” bahaha.
“Rub One Out”…. yeah that one was just not even right.
And one of my favorite’s “The Hardest Part of Breaking Up…is Getting Back Your Stuff”.
Why am I talking about ANY of this? Well, because for some reason, that I still don’t know, these boys were in my dream last night and I have had all of the 2Ge+her songs in my head ALL.DAY.LONG.
I have found myself singing things like….
“You plus me, it doesn’t equal us, you stole my heart now I gotta take the bus..”
“Girl I can’t understand you, you’re like reading a big fat book in Hebrew….say it, don’t spray it, I want the news, not the weather… woohoo….”
“You got my sweaters my hat, I can’t find my cat (meow) the hardest part of breaking up…is getting back your stuff…”
You get the idea. It was fun for a minute, but seriously WHY do I remember the lyrics to these ridiculous songs?!
Please someone save me from my humiliation and tell me you also somewhat enjoyed these songs too, probably whilst wearing sparkly eyeshadow, white eyeliner, tenderheart lipstick from Clinique, and covered in Victoria’s Secret ‘Love Spell’??
And for your enjoyment today, if you happened to blink and miss them back in 2000, here is a video. This seriously made me laugh out loud. But I won’t be surprised if I am the only one.
