Twenty years ago, a TV series aired for the first time. It became an international hit, one of the most popular shows the world had ever seen. After ten seasons (and ten years ago), the show bowed out even though still going strong. The show I am talking about is of course Friends! Who can forget the loveable characters of Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston), Monica Geller (Courteney Cox), Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow), Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry), Ross Geller (David Schwimmer) and Joey Tribbiani (Matt Le Blanc)?
I admit, I never watched Friends when it was originally airing, but that was because I was too young. After I started dating Kelly, however, she changed things entirely. She introduced me to this iconic world of the 90s. Initially, when she told me that she watched the show literally every day on her DVDs, I laughed at her. I thought she was crazy. Now I watch the show every day. I am a fan. A big fan!
Because this year is the 20/10 year reunion of the show airing and ending, I wanted to do something fun as tribute to the show, and since I like music, I thought lets do something musical. As you probably know, the show at regular intervals portrayed Phoebe singing at Central Perk. Who doesn’t remember the words to “Smelly Cat” or “Ode To A Pubic Hair”? So I thought I would sing a medley of a couple of Phoebe Buffay’s songs sung at Central Perk. And of course in performing it, I had to include the biggest Friends fan I know, Kelly.
We did it true-to-Phoebe-style: bad guitar playing and silly vocals!! HAHA 🙂 So this is me and Kelly singing Phoebe’s songs!
