Forgotten Classic Video of the Week

This week's vid is for all the John Hughes fans out there: "Fire in the Twilight" by Wang Chung, otherwise known as "the running through the hallways trying to avoid Principal Vernon song." If it weren't for John Hughes, I would never have posted one of this band's videos on my blog. I can tolerate this song because it reminds me of The Breakfast Club, but everything else of theirs makes me want to hammer corn cob holders into my ears.

I really never thought there were any hardcore Wang Chung fans out there. It sounds ridiculous, right? But apparently, they do exist. At least on YouTube. One commenter said that the band "changes lives," while another declared, "Wang Chung is more powerful than anything you can imagine." Anything except the drugs that commenter is on, that is.

By the way, peeps, I'm on vacation this week, so I may only be posting and commenting sporadically. But remember, you don't have to wait until I come back to leave me comments.

I hope you enjoy your vacation more than I enjoyed the Wang Chung video.

Sorry, Becks, I can't do it, I'm just not strong enough - I only made it 1/4 of the way through that horrid song before I had to bail. *shudder*

Wang Chung "changes lives"?! Not for the better, if you ask me.

Although I like Wang Chung, I'm not going to go overboard and call them life changing. Maybe the people making those glowing comments suffered some brain damage from one too many viewings of the "Everybody Have Fun Tonight" video.

Enjoy your vacation.

The only way they've changed my life is that when I hear someone say, "Have fun tonight" I automatiacally add (inside my head) "everybody Wang Chung tonight."

Have a relaxing vacation!

Wang Chung was hands down the best bad on that Hit Me Baby One More Time debacle. I was surprised, too.

And I don't recall any of us giving you permission to go on vacation.

Thanks for helping me Wang Chung tonight!


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.
