When I was about 13 or 14 years old, I got money for a Christmas or my birthday. I can’t remember why I got the money. So I decided to buy George Michael’s Faith album. I had liked George Michael since his days with Wham! My favorite song when I was my youngest son’s age was “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go.”
On the Faith album, there was a song called “I want Your Sex.” I was so naive so I didn’t think anything of that song. Well, soon after I bought the album the tape in the cassette tape decided to break. We went back to return the tape.
Grandma had not seen the tape when I bought it but when we got to the store she had seen the names of the songs. Boy was she mad at me. I was not suppose to be listening to songs about sex at my young age.
I was not allowed to buy another Faith album. I was allowed to return it and get a different album by a different artist.
So what did I get instead? I ended up with Rick Astley’s “Whenever You Need Somebody.” I can remember opening that cassette tape and my grandpa playing it on the radio of his Astro Van.
I was Rick Rolled by my grandma. To be honest, I liked the album at that point in my life.
I think the Faith album was the first album I ever bought. If my boys bought something like that I would be so upset. It was not an appropriate album for my age.
This was the time I was Rick Rolled.
