Forgotten Classic Video of the Week

This week's video is for all of you folks out there who often wonder, "What kind of wonderful world would it be if there were more than one Leo Sayer?" Well, unless he's cast in Multiplicity II or cloned for realz, this rare clip provides us with our only glimpse into such a Utopian universe.

It also reminds us all, again, that white men can't dance. Not even with the help of a giant afro. In fact, that giant brillo pad on his head hurts more than it helps. (How many times do I have to tell these crackers that Lindsey Buckingham is the only one who can successfully pull off the white man 'fro?)

Upon watching this again, I'd really like to know who the "you" was in "You Make Me Feel Like Dancing." Whoever YOU are, YOU need to be slapped. See what YOU put us all through?? This video perfectly illustrates why you shouldn't always do what you feel.



While the visuals are lame, this is a damn catchy song. If you don't think so, blame my BFF, Angela, who requested it. I'm not sure what prompted her to do so. I think she had an erotic dream in which she was using Leo as a loofah.


Leo sez..."Don't forget to take the lyrics quiz! Scroll down!"

Yep. That song is still terrible.

Beckeye, you got a sweet way of bloggin'.

David Amulet said...

Two modifications to your commentary:

(1) Some white men CAN dance. Case in point: Christopher Walken.

(2) At least one other white man could pull off the fro: Justin Timberlake. Look for it.

Hand held up:

Please don't hate me.

Lindsey Buckingham....

Lindsey yes....Leo NO

Miss Beckeye, it would probably be best if I don't say anything about Leo Sayer. You seem to be familiar with Beth at Cup of Coffey. Maybe she can help you with your taste in music, yes?

He had a SERIOUS case of jazz hands!!

That song makes me remember why I tried to forget as much as I could about the 70s.

White men should never do a fro...Don Henley of Eagles fame sported a pretty fluffy one as well.

Grant Miller said...

Awesome song. I also like to think you, beckeye, were the "you" in that song.

Oh, the pain...

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I always get him mixed up with Richard Simmons.

J. Hi said...

I didn't even know who sang this song. That's one crazy 'fro!

THANK YOU BECK!! :) I gotta say, although the video is way cheezie and Leo does look like Richard Simmons having an epiliptic episode, I do love this song. And good eye to blogger Kristi for spottin those crazy jazzhands! lol

The aformentioned BFF, Angela :)

If Richard Simmons, Bobby Bitman's brother (I forget his name right now) and Mark Walburg (as the Dick Diggler) had a baby the little tike's name would be Leo Sayer

This song makes me feel like not listening to this song.

Abysmal...

FranIAm said...

Sometimes I think you really do want to hurt me.

Dale said...

I can't watch the video because I will never dance again if I do. Maybe I should watch the video.

Beth said...

I took the lyrics quiz, and Leo didn't have to make me feel like dancing to do it.

Justin Guarini can also rock the 'fro.

Distributorcap said...

why do all videos about dancing suck?

OMG...I'm back at the skate-a-way skating rink during couples skate! (and the disco ball...of course)

 

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.
