What are the qualifications one needs to stage a comeback? Because I feel ready to make one.
The first requirement, I think, would be some sort of dramatic downward spiral. A fall from grace, or public favor. Or to step down “under a cloud.” I think my forced removal from the Itty Bitty Titty Committee would suffice. There could be an optional drug or alcohol problem, too.
A comeback also requires some kind of reinvention: a new hairstyle (Sharpton), dramatic weight-loss (Brian Wilson), a beard (Gore), or on the other end of the spectrum, a tour-de-force novel, play, or movie(Polanski) after a long dry-spell. Hmm. I think my new commercial pop hit “You Love Me (And Everything I Do)” would qualify as a comeback. See, I haven’t had a hit since “Eatin’ Yo’ Puddin’,” which was released over 6 years ago.
What else do I need?
