Freedom 90

university 1 min read

I was in George Square tonight to see the tree-lighting ceremony and fireworks. I briefly bumped into Neil when 
going into Walkabout (he was just leaving), then later we were both on the Bearded Monkeys IRC channel (as we are 
most nights at some point). One part of the conversation was kind of funny.
 
Matt: one of the songs they played in George Sq reminded me of Freedom 90, so now it's in my head. On repeat-1 in iTunes now.
 
Matt: think I may have to buy a George Michael album. Never thought I'd say that.
 
Neil: fag!
 
Matt: I know I know
 
Matt: but damn it's a great song
 
Neil: yeah.. he has some good stuff.
 
Matt: heh
 
Neil: Even if he does bum men.
 
Matt: fucking hypocrite
 
Neil: It's like Michael Jackson
 
Matt: true
 
Neil: so what if he touched a few kids
 
Neil: we've all done it
 
Neil: the fact is
 
Neil: he made some great records
 
Matt: dude
 
Matt: this log is definitely going in your profile
 
 



Just a note for those not personally acquainted with us: there's no bigotry or homophobia here. We simply derive a great deal of pleasure 
from deliberately violating the rules of political correctness; we probably get it from <a href="http://stuwee.org/">Disco Stu</a> 
(<a href="http://mattgemmell.com/images/hotornot/stuart.jpg">pictured here</a>).



And Freedom 90 is <em>still</em> on Repeat 1. Let me save Mark some trouble:
All we have to do now
Is take these lies and make them true somehow
All we have to see
Is that I don't belong to you
And you don't belong to me
Freedom
You've gotta give for what you take
