Guilty feet have got no rhythm

So, for April Fool's day PopMatters is covering Wham!'s immortal Make It Big! LP in great detail (I wish they hadn't put up an April Fool's disclaimer, though). For my part, I cover "Careless Whisper" (scroll down), and I assure you I ain't joking in the slightest.

Yeah, the disclaimer sort of defeats the purpose, doesn't it?

Stylus never would have had a disclaimer.

I'm just saying.

Are you participating in the Purple Rain extravaganza?

Hard to think of two records I care less about.

I am not; I can't bring myself to care about Prince. Or George Michael, this song excepted, really.

Stylus also wouldn't have needed the excuse of April Fools Day to run a Wham! retrospective.

Actually there are Prince songs I rather like, but none of them are on Purple Rain.

"Kiss" is a great song.

Ha! This would have been hilarious were it not for the disclaimer (?!) but the further I dig, the funnier it gets. An appreciation of Andrew Ridgely???

I think we owe him no less.

Yeah, John, definitely on the money.

And yes, I like "Kiss" (and a few of the other singles) just fine, but I don't really go in for the albums, you know? I assume that's the same with you too, Jenny.
