Forgotten Classic Video of the Week

On my holiday trip back to the 'Burgh, I not only got to spend some quality time with the family, but with VH-1 Classic. (My Dad has it. Just one of the many reasons that my Dad kicks ass.)

During one VH-1 veg-out session, I was delighted to finally see the video for Nena's "Just A Dream" again. Delighted because I've started to think over the years that Nena never really had a follow-up semi-hit to "99 Luftballoons" and that it may have all been just...a...dream. Oddly enough, I could never remember how the song went, but vividly remembered almost everything about the video. Especially the lip gloss-wearing, Nick Rhodes wannabe keyboard player. And I thought Nena showed her hairy pits, but upon further review, I'm mistaken. Trust me though, the girl didn't have a razor. And ok, so her name wasn't really Nena (that was the band), but it was like Katerina Von Glupschkleckklugen or something equally crazy and German, so I'll just continue to call her Nena.

See if y'all remember this one...

99 Red Balloons is still one of my all time favorites, but why is it that German stuff looks like an American knock off? Like stuff you find in the Dollar Store.

My problem with pop culture is that it quickly ignores the things that don't hit as high on the charts. Great to see it gain a second life on YouTube.


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
