If the world ever needed a comeback from a true pop icon, it's Rick Astley. Yesterday's birthday boy, who gave us the immortal Top 40 dance floor hits "Together Forever" and "Never Gonna Give You Up," has toiled in relative obscurity over in England most of the past 15 years. If he knew how much he meant to the Woburn Advocate staff (read: me and my reporter) back in 2004 or so, he might be inspired to serenade us with his deep, brotha-ly baritone once more.
This is an oldie, but a goodie. Happy birthday Rick:
