Day 2 – A Song You (Fucking) Hate
Playing With the Boys – Kenny Loggins
As much as I hate the living snot out of this horrible (yet refreshingly homo-erotic) soundtrack abomination, it did play kind of an integral part in deciding someone was an alright sort of person.
He texted that he was watching Top Gun.
I applauded his decision, as a straight man, to watch the most thinly veiled piece of mainstream gay pornography ever.
He stated that the soundtrack was undeniably awesome.
I assured him it was not.
(Everyone knows Pretty in Pink had the most amazing, don’t even try to go there, best soundtrack ever.)
Not content to let me sit with my misguided notions, he went to work the next day.
Where he did not work. But, instead, created a spreadsheet. Which MATHEMATICALLY proved the superiority of the Top Gun Soundtrack, over admittedly worthy competitors, such as “Footloose“, “Pretty in Pink” (gasp), “So I Married an Axe Murderer“, and surprise contender “Twister“.
Spread sheets and cheesy music.
I never had a chance.
