You Know You're a Romantics Fanatic when....
Jan 24th, 2005 at 9:49pm
 
Thought this might be a fun thread to start... Smiley

Here's a few on my list....

*********************************************

1) The first time you meet your future spouse, the 2nd sentence you ask them is if they know how to play "What I Like About You".

2) You cancel your New Year's Eve Party (and move it to New Year's Day) just so that you can see the Romantics Play at the Royal Oak Music Theatre.

3) You have a copy of "Meet The Romantics" and it is in danger of melting down in your CD Player.

4) Even though you are broke, you still consider flying to another city to see the Romantics play.

5) You drive from Detroit to Toledo and Cleveland just to see 2 concerts (and they are on the same weekend.)

6) You grab about 20 copies of the Metro Times because the Romantics is on the cover.

7) You have all of their early albums on Vinyl (and are still keeping an eye out for other pressings)

8 ) You have been to about 40 weddings and have asked the DJ to play "What I Like About You" at almost every one of them...

9) You have a Karaoke CD with "What I Like About You" on them as well as "Talking in Your Sleep" and can critique the listed lyrics....

10) You know the actual link to the Message board page by heart:  http://www.romanticsdetroit.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.cgi

11) You wait so long outside of their tent at a concert that their bouncer takes pity on you and gets you inside to meet the band!

12) You buy the guitar music (tab & note format) of "What I Like About You" even though you play piano and don't even play electric guitar. (hope to learn it someday!)

Great thread...I think Kat and I (Pody too) can relate to more than one of those questions... Grin

Oh, this is too funny! 
You know you're a fanatic when you pretend to be part of the catering crew to get backstage(many moons ago!)

You know you're a fanatic when you've managed to run off three boyfriends who swear you've slept with Wally....only in my dreams, you dummies.

You know you're a fanatic when you finally find the man who can trust you...enough to let you have your entire wedding filled with the wonderous sounds of the Romantics.

You know you're a fanatic when you forbid the dj at your wedding reception to play anything but the Romantics.

You know you're a crazy fanatic when you're actually considering hiring the band to play in your backyard!

And finally......

You know you're a fanatic when you spend way too much time at work on this website.

And that's just a small sampling of my personal fanatacizm...is that a word?   Wink

Love it Lisa! Smiley

I have taken to bringing my own CDs of "What I Like About You" to the Karaoke bars and to weddings because I need to have the right version of that song... Smiley

I'm considering inviting the band to my house to dinner... does that count?

Oh, and another one...

You know you're a fanatic, when....

13)  you are seriously thinking about hiring Rich Cole to put in your air conditioning... (gotta scrape together some cash first... LOL)

I lied.... one more:

14) You think of Coz Canler and not Bill Cosby when you hear someone mention the name "Coz"....

and it continues....

15) You went out and bought 5 copies of 61/49 when it came out... 1 for playing, 1 for your kid brother, 1 for the band to autograph and 2 just in case your other CDs end up getting scratched or otherwise destroyed by the number of times you've listened to it....

You got me laughing, Iris!!  Speaking of Coz...I have a cat named Cozmo...kinda similar, although I named him after Kramer from Seinfeld. 

I think dinner with the guys at your house counts...just let me know when you do this and I'll bring the dessert!

How about when you have to have 61/49 not only on cd but on vinyl as well.

Or how about when you have been videotaping every known local and national TV appearance since 1980? (not to mention some local shows as well)

Or how about trying to get your hands on as many live recordings as you can (especially some from back in the day before they got signed. Could this mean an all live "Meet The Romantics Live" coming next? Hint Hint).

How about when you have to have ALL the albums on both cd and vinyl...and you have to store the vinyl in makeshift sleeves because you have the album covers framed in your rec room...

And you draw the Romantics' logo on the bass drum of your 5-year-old kid's toy drum set...

Oh wait, I forgot Francine...I know she can relate to more than one of these questions...I actually learned to drive a stick shift on a last minute NJ-OH trip after having just been to 2 back to back shows (hey it was 1984)...that OH trip was pretty darn fun though, even with the rain and humidity  8)

you know you are a romantics fan when:

.......you wake up and hour and a half before you need to during the work week to check out the message board and grab a free postie Grin

........your family members (including your 80 year old mother) know the names of the girls who work for web.

........expedia, cheaptickets, southwest , northwest and spiritair are your most frequently visited websites.

Actually, I had pretty good success with finger paints.  The goopiness lends itself to the Romantics logo.   Tongue

Thought it might be fun to revive this thread... Smiley


You know you're a Romantics Fanatic when you go to the "Future All-Stars Baseball Game" JUST to listen to the Romantics play in 90+ degree heat.... AND... you leave before the game even starts!

16) You invite your mom and a bus load of international students to a concert just so that they can "experience" some American culture and music

17) You plan your annual trip around the fact that The Romantics are playing in Vegas...

18) You party with some of the band members until 4 a.m. Vegas Time (7 a.m. home time)

19) You almost get a black eye from a woman because you are trying to take pictures of the band.
