Forgotten Classic Video of the Week

I'm saddened that the video I really wanted to post is no longer on YouTube. I won't tell you what it is in case it resurfaces again and I can surprise you all with it.

So, for now, let's just go with Loverboy, okay? If you're feeling a bit warm, that's 'cause I just turned on the heat. It's a hundred above. It's "Hot Girls in Love."

This song may have one of the greatest first verses I've ever heard. It is sheer poetry that rivals anything on the new Britney Spears record. Sing along, won't you?

She's so young at heart; she likes the pleasure of his company
She cuts the inside groove with her silver spoon
She likes her tapes on 10, and it's the same as her anatomy
She's on a rainbow cruise all the way to my room

A rainbow cruise? That sounds faaaaa-bulous!

And now for a little holiday tip...

If you have too much to drink at a holiday party or on New Year's Eve, and you have one of those episodes where you really have to throw up but it won't come, and as disgusting as puking is you know you'll feel ten times better if it just comes up, try this: Imagine what Mike Reno's head-band-ana must have smelled like. I mean, he wore that thing every day for about 10 straight years. Almost as impressive as his ability to sing through clenched teeth.

Terrible song.

I think YOU have the magic touch.

Dale said...

He has those creepy teeth too doesn't he? I wonder what this proud Canadian is up to these days.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Thanks, Beckeye. I do feel so much better now that it all came up.

The Guv'ner said...

That is just...wrong on so many levels.

I felt my holiday spirit slip right out the bottom of my pants.

I will have to top it up with tequila, what a shame!

A rainbow cruise sounds pretty gay. Is she a tranny?

He was just touring the U.S. I heard him on Rockline on my way to work last week.

LoraLoo said...

Even better - imagine him in those red leather

Are you blind after the visual? heh.

Ha ha ha! She likes her tapes on 10? That is fantastic. Well done.

Dale said...

Touring?! Oh my.


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.
