Can someone verify that the horrible Video Music Awards programming is over? Is it safe for me to turn my TV on again?

...see - I'm not dancey. Is it too much to ask to have dancey trax be as interesting as this for the rest of us?...

Was one of the other songs stuck in your head "R2-D2, We Wish You A Merry Christmas?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44am Therese:

No, but one of them WAS the Empire's theme music from Star Wars.

I liked the Elton John. I was listening while hanging laundry. Now it's the James Gang while eating ice cream.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46am pacific standard simon:

I forgot about this version of "Cast Your Fate to the Wind". I often get We Five's version, with lyrics, stuck in my head.
Avatar 12:53am BadGuyZero:

Today's Google Doodle reminded me that it's time for this year's U.S. Open. I watched those letters play tennis for a couple of minutes with the biggest grin on my face.

BGZ, They're still at it. The yellow O keeps making great saves.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:11am Ken From Hyde Park:

The VMAs were on every Viacom channel earlier. I would've wound up watching South Park reruns anyway, so just as well. I got a load of laundry in the washer.
Avatar 1:11am BadGuyZero:

I watched a video of those buildings being imploded. I can't not watch new videos of implosions.
  1:50am Billy London:

I'm hoping the Sami Davis version of up and away is next

Elza Soares was pretty snappy. You can play more of that album anytime.
