Forgotten Classic Video of the Week

Since I'm moving to Brooklyn, I was hoping to find a classic video that would fit that theme. Unfortunately, The Beastie Boys never made a vid for "No Sleep 'Til Brooklyn." There is no video for Billy Joel's "Movin' Out" either. I really couldn't think of anything else, so I opted for "Move This" by Technotronic and Ya Kid K. Now I will be singing this infernal song all day. I just sat and had an argument with myself over whether or not this was the song from the Cindy Crawford Revlon commercials. After about 20 minutes, I decided that was "Shake That Body." Then, after some research, I discovered that there is no such song as "Shake That Body," and that it's just a line from "Move This." Sigh. It's hardly my fault. All of their songs are essentially the same, so why did I even strain myself trying to figure this crap out?

Come on everyone, get up, get up and shake this. Rock that, get down, move that jam and pump up ya body. Or whatever.

Sorry can't go back to that period for fear of having it stuck in my brain for the rest of today. ;)

Peace & Hugs,

They had a couple of hits and were on SNL once even. Wasn't there a bit of a controversy that they had models do the first video or two because they thought the singer wouldn't pull us all in if they used her?

I've always wanted to get up and dance whenever I heard that song... now I find out the singer's a girl...
and I feel totally stupid. All this adrogynousnessicity has got to go.

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
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.
