Day Twenty-Nine - An artist everyone hated but you liked

Garth Brooks

I’m renaming today, “Is my Gresham showing?”

Yes, I almost avoided this day altogether.  I knew from the beginning who my answer was, but just couldn’t bring myself to post it, just too embarrassing.  And, really, with all of the hits to chose from, what song would I even post?  Have you seen the track listing for The Hits (I’m being completely serious)?  And then Sarah came through with the perfect angle.  It was there are along, how could I have missed it.  SINGING ANIMATRONIC FROG.  If you don’t know what I’m talking about, clearly you weren’t at 9-9-9, nor had you been to the Wynn casino in Las Vegas around the time that Steve Wynn decided to actualize his favorite acid trip.  If not, feast your eyes, ears and brains on the ohh-so-easily found YouTube footage above.

Ok, about Garth Brooks, I honestly do love him.  It’s just one of those things.  I don’t know when I started but I do know it was when I didn’t know any better.  Sometime between then and now I’ve learned to become ashamed of that.  I should probably just get over it though.  I like one guy and he only plays his old hits in Vegas at the Wynn.  That’s kinda awesome.  I could go on about which songs are my favorite and why but I’m pretty sure I’d be preaching to a choir of zero… or to a motionless animatronic frog.
