Oh Etsy | You are GOLD

When I was a kid, I would have the TV on all day, everyday during the school holidays.  Even if I wasn’t watching it, it was still on in the background.  My parents worked and I would be at home by myself, so there was no one to tell me that just because I could didn’t mean I should. 

Back then, the cartoons were over by mid morning and didn’t start again until late afternoon, so I was mainly stuck with infomercials and soap operas. There was this one infomercial for a “Best of the 80’s” compilation album and it was on every. damn. day. God, I hated that commercial. (Although apparently, not enough to actually turn the TV off?)

For me the worst part was the fact that the song ‘Gold’ by Spandau Ballet would play numerous times throughout the duration of the ad, but Just the chorus. And because informercials play on a bloody loop, that was all I would hear. Every day. “You are GOLD!! (gold) Always beleeiive in your soouuuulllll” Oh my god it drove me insane.

But here’s the thing. Even though that was a million years ago, the damage has been done; Now, any time I hear anyone say the word ‘gold’, in any context, even if I just read  it -  I instantly have that damn song stuck in my head. Every time without fail. It’s like I brainwashed myself in the most useless way possible.

If you’re wondering what the point of this story is, it’s that I have that damn song stuck in my head again! Thanks to these pretty things I spotted on Etsy, I will be humming this song over and over again for the rest of the week. I hope you guys appreciate the things I do for you…
