The Launch: Season One
The proof is in the pudding, they say, and the individuals who stepped up to compete in this new television show have got their just desserts.
I was won over in the very first show. The recording selection was not made on star power, physical beauty or perfect pop performance, but on heart. That made a change.
It also seemed to me that in almost every case, the two recordings that they had to choose from each week were equally worthy of being Launched, so for every winner there was a brilliant loser, too. Such a tough business to get into.
So here are the recordings they Launched:
The Lucky Ones
Soldier of Love
We could be cynical here and say that all popular music is manufactured (s)hit, but that wouldn’t explain the enduring nature of songs and our memories.
This format has a lot of weaknesses in it, but the results speak for themselves.
And, in a separate post, I will highlight the so-called losers, performing the same songs.
