Forgotten Classic Video of the Week

Let's all do the pony to one of the dumbest hit singles ever! It's 1986's "I Wanna Be a Cowboy" by Boys Don't Cry. Giddyup!

Sorry, neither Robert Smith nor Hillary Swank is involved in any way.

Oh man, a blast from my past. Loved this song. Or maybe I shouldn't admit that.


evil-e said... freaking gay. I hated this song when I was in high school and I still hate it.

Every time I see/hear the line "I want to be a cowboy" this song does not come to mind. The first song that I hear is "Urban Struggle" by the Vandals...that's the first line.

This would make a great question for my blog: According to Beckeye (and seconded by Editor), what is one of the dumbest hit singles of 1986 with the word "cowboy" in the title?

My girl BeckEye, you know I am not always down with the vids you pick, but today... You did good. (and i am sure you hang on my every affirming word. sheesh!)

I had forgotten that stupid song even existed. I'm not sure I am happier now that you reminded me.

Ahaha! I haven't heard that song, or seen that video in ages! Too funny :O)

I'm afraid to admit I still enjoy this song. Reminds me of a guy I used to date, he loved it.

The thing about these Forgotten Videos of The Week things, is that for me these videos were never forgotten.They just never existed.
Somebody tell me I'm the lucky one.

I lasted less than 15 seconds and only pressed play to see if I remembered the tune. The still frame looked like it might have been Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead which would have been cool, but you fooled me.

Haven't we put this utter crap behind us and admitted what a stain on music the 80's were?

What's next, "If you like Pinacolada's"? Stop the madness!

There's a reason why these videos are forgotten.

One of the all time gayest songs in the history of ever.

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.
