Day 72 out of 365.

“I’ve been a victim of a selfish kind of love
It’s time that I realize
That there are some with no home, not a nickel to loan
Could it be really me, pretending that they’re not alone?”

Happy 11th anniversary, Psych!
Let’s celebrate with the psych-out that started all psych-outs. Can’t go wrong with Man in the Mirror.

HILL: Roday and I really connected on our love of ’80s music and we would just go back and forth singing Michael Jackson tunes, Tears for Fears… Anything we could come up with from the ’80s, we would be singing them off camera. Somehow in the midst of that we formed our own ’80s group where we started coming up with our own songs and then from there, it evolved to the real smooth singer and the real hype singer. It’s stuff we just kept doing and cracking ourselves up. Then, from there, we somehow got to “Man in the Mirror,” which was me singing “Man in the Mirror” while he was doing his first wrap-up and that’s actually in the pilot. From there, we started to refine a little dynamic because they ended up filming what we were doing off camera and putting it as the first Psych-Out that’s in the pilot.

RODAY: Nobody could say anything without us turning it into the song. I think by the end of it, people might’ve been a little bit annoyed by us. We just couldn’t let it go.
