fist pump tuesday
This week’s FPT is short ‘n’ sweet! Fist pumps at the ready, please!
“Sweet Caroline” as sung by GLEE! I have heard this song more times than anyone can fathom. I have received so many (sometimes drunken) phone calls from baseball games, karaoke bars, and parties, with people howling this song into the phone or on my voicemail. I have been serenaded (actually, actually serenaded) with it in front of a large crowd of people in a foreign country. My mother made up her own version and used to sing it to me as a child.
And for years, I have pointed a finger of blame at Neil Diamond for writing that stupid, stupid song. However, all that changed when I watched the episode of Glee where Puck sings this song and utterly redeems the crap out of it.
I now officially can’t stop listening to it, which feels oddly vain. (But only the Glee version; I still have it out for you, Neil.)
What is making you pump your fist today?
