Forgotten Classic Video of the Week

I'm posting my video of the week today instead of the usual Tuesday, because I don't want it getting lost in all the American Idol recap madness. I have been looking for this vid on YouTube forever and someone finally posted it this month. The video quality isn't perfect, it's a little too bright in spots, and ends rather abruptly but - believe me - I'm not complaining! Behold the magic of John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, singing their duet from Two of a Kind, "Take a Chance."

Watching this again makes me wonder why John Travolta and John Cougar never had a ladder dance-off. Hmm.

It also reminds me that I should really sue the director, David Mallet, because he basically ripped off my longest-running recurring dream. I won't though, because he directed a lot of other great videos...some of which have caused me to have recurring dreams. Billy Idol in the shower! Joe Elliott in tight, white pants! The Wilson sisters welding! (I wanted to be Nancy Wilson for a short time, if you must know.)

Oh how that man can dance.

Sorry .... just barfed ... I liked the song "Twist of Fate".

The aliens came down and taught John Travolta to dance.

Whoa. . .early 1980s flashback. Damn, Olivia was HOT back then. So-so song from a movie that should've been much better. Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

Those two had such an incredible charisma together. I'm almost surprised they never ended up dating.

The video was seriously cheesy, totally indicative of it's decade...


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.
