As of late I have been on a Scrubs kick. Not the clothing, the TV show. So far I am on Season 3, gotta love that Netflix!
Really I am in love with the show all over again. Quick moving intelligent humor with just enough slapstick to keep it light. Or maybe it is because I am a super geek and relate to the geek characters. That could be it.
One interesting side effect of watching the show is that they often highlight music. And I end up buying it. Like the acoustic version of Overkill by Colin Hay. Awesome. Just plain awesome.
Last night as I was watching season 3 disc 1 Zack Braff’s character JD suggested a Journey cover band for a wedding. He got teased, then he got defensive, downplaying his love of the band. Then the Donald Faison character Turk whispered-sang into JD’s ear:
Just a small-town girl
Livin’ in a lonely world
She took the midnight train
And of course because no one can resist the Journey JD immediately stood up and without reserve sang back:
Just a city boy
Born and raised in south
He took the midnight train
And subsequently admitted that indeed, Journey does rock.
So what do I do? This morning I stopped myself from leaving my house to buy, download to Mackie, and upload to the ipod…Journey’s greatest hits. And I’ll be damned if I haven’t been listening all morning and grinning like an idiot from ear to ear. Which is totally normal to see, a New Yorker walking to work smiling. We all do that.
In case you didn’t realize, goddamn it Scrubs is right. Journey just rocks.
