Forgotten Classic Video of the Week

Hey, even if your name isn't Leroy, you should check out this week's vid: "I Wish I Had A Girl" by the Lord of Mullets, Henry Lee Summer.

I've always had quite an affection for this song, which kind of makes me feel like a bumpkin. Although it was fairly popular back when it came out in 1987, probably the only place you'd hear this tune now is blaring out of this guy's truck window. -->

Oh, and on my blog, of course.

I actually wanted to post this vid a couple of years ago, but apparently there wasn't an embeddable version on YouTube then. Finally, this wrong has been righted. And right before Thanksgiving, too.

You know, this song reminds me...I always wished I had a guy who walked like George Jefferson.

Great stuff Becky, but what else can a person expect out of a blog that runs on Unicorn power?

I have a Henry Lee Summer record single! I think it was "Hey Baby" though. This song might be better.

I bet he still looks like that. AW glory days, man. They'll pass you by.

All hail the mullet!

This video is a great find, Becky! Simply awesome. Awesome. :)


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.
