We Will Still Be Friends Forever

Aw, look at Westlife. They're chatting and laughing and walking together. They must be real mates, mustn't they? Sticking in line with the No We Are Not Splitting Up album (also titled Unbreakable), it's probably the best option for a single cover. Even if Nicky's got a rampant erection.

Ah yes, Nicky's alter-ego, Donkey-Man, has finally made his way onto a single cover. It took quite a while, considering Donkey-Man's relative fame amongst the Westlife fan base, and didn't hurt his popularity in the slightest. Notice Donkey-Man is looking right at Shane while he displays his unique 'powers'. Is touching him, even. Slash fans take note!

Otherwise, it's one of those single covers that screams "friendship!" right in your ear. Mark's draped all over Nicky, while Nicky and Shane eye each other up. Meanwhile, Bryan and Kian discuss something very important. Judging from the way Kian's gesturing, it's about the size of Donkey-Man's... ahem... asset.

On a personal note, Unbreakable is the culprit of all my obsession. I was just swanning along, one of those pop kids who quite liked Backstreet Boys and Blue, and then suddenly... *WHOOMPH!* Unbreakable jumps out from a So Fresh CD, grabs me in its taloned grip and drags me into full-on Westlife fan-ship. Three weeks later I had all the albums. It has a special place in my heart.

The B-side, Never Knew I Was Losing You, is completely wonderful, a gorgeous little melody-driven piece of perfection, written by all the Westlife lads together, and featuring every voice in perfect synchronicity and harmony.

Donkey-Man, especially, sounds beautiful.

Just wondering, are there other people like you out there? Are you the world's greatest Westlife fan, or do you have an archnemesis, vying for the crown?

I'm pretty high up there, but I wouldn't say I'm the biggest.

Check out The Committed for a nice collection of mental fans. It's in the Links section on the sidebar.

I don't know... they are committed, but you're maintaining this shrine all by yourself! I think you win on a points decision, but then I couldn't bring myself to take a very close look at the site.

Yay for Shan!

And Moa - I dunno, I was thinking about it if I have time. I was thinking of doing an article as well on why Westlife haven't broken America, or maybe something about Brian's lack of success. But I haven't decided yet. I have a lot of other assessment due at the moment.

swedish_me said...

mmm ok... im just wonderin...coz it's an pretty odd thing... fanlistings for eyes, ears, bulges, songs, albums,lads, parings, couples, kids, relationships (both fic n real) etc.. =P if it was me i'd at least mention it..but ..maybe not make such a huge deal bout it since lots has closed...

Grace Suter said...

The ones about the kids really freak me out. I can understand if you really like a certain song or member, or even a Westlife bottom! But to like a Westlifer's child?

It's just that step too far, out of fandom and into stalker.

swedish_me said...

mmmm tho i know listings bout the relationship between kerry & molly... n kerry & lilly... n kerry & the kids... n molly & lilly...n kerry & jordan!
