Forgotten Classic Video of the Week

This week's vid was inspired in a roundabout way by Zac Efron. Mmmmmm...Efron.

I just got done watching 17 Again (before you laugh, you should know that it was actually very funny), which got me thinking about the classic Winger ode to underage lust, "Seventeen." But since that song is hardly in danger of being forgotten, I decided to pick another Winger song that was popular back in the day, but has been overshadowed by the aforementioned slutty jailbait anthem. Apparently, the people only want to hear Kip Winger sing about wearing young girls like leather gloves.

So, here is my favorite Winger song, which was also their first single, 1988's "Madalaine." Ah, I remember well the first time I saw this video. From the second I saw the bass, those dazzling teeth, all that hair (both head and chest), and the tight pantsed high-kicks, I was hooked on the Kipper. And oh, those pirouettes!

Kip gives Sammy Hagar a run for his money with the teeth. I'd kill for those choppers.

Yes, Kip was pretty. I thought that was Marc Slaughter when he first started screaming. Which one out of those two was prettier? Hmmmmm . . .

I don't know anything about Winger but I do know this: They'd be funnier if their name was Wanger. Although, maybe not.

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

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.
