Oh, Taylor.

My pal Jeff may have a point; there was a time when I was a bit gay for Taylor Hicks.

Now, though…oh, how the mighty have fallen:

The soul singer, who claimed the “Idol” title in 2006, has apparently been dropped by J Records, a label within Sony-BMG, which signs the show’s singers.

I stole his album back when it came out (yep, walked right into a Best Buy, stuffed it down my pants, and ran right out past the sensors; FUCK YOU, RIAA) and I recall not minding it. The first single had potential. Problem was, they took his neo-soul sound and mapped it onto the electronic bleeps and blips that most pop hits are required to execute.

You stopped reading after I typed “Taylor Hicks,” didn’t you.
