my mind is a vast repository of pop culture and fin de siècle trivia from the 20th century. my knowledge of bad music and other useless nonsense is so far reaching in fact, that sometimes i get the following kinds of phone calls from my hubby:
him: hey, what’s the name of that song, you know the one, it goes, la la la de de doo de dum.
me: oh you mean heart and soul?
him: yeah! who sang that?
him: sweet! i’m about to win twenty bucks.
see? completely useless, meaningless stuff, yet it’s all locked away, hogging precious gray matter.
anyway, so i’ve decided to put my *knowledge* to some good use by introducing a new weekly feature i like to call FLASHBACK FRIDAYS!
my sister, sessie, once said something really profound. we were in sitting in city spirits, a funky, now-defunct bar in lodo denver, having some drinks and i said something about how it seemed to me america was losing it’s sweetness. i couldn’t believe what we were seeing in the media and it just seemed to be getting worse.
“leigh,” she said, “if you think the 90s are bad, just wait. the 2000s are gonna make the 80s seem like the 50s.” alcohol makes philosophers of us all. but in this instance she was so right.
so, this is is just going to be an opportunity for me to dig up some old relics from a kinder, gentler time which will hopefully make you laugh or smile and say, “hey! i remember that! omg!” or maybe you’ll say, “WTF, i NEVER saw that before in my life! how the eff old are you anyway, leigh?! you need to get out more.”
either way, i hope you enjoy it.
so, for our first installment i’d like to share this. this was an awesome song that we danced our butts off to. i only ever heard it out clubbing and never on the radio.
so do you remember and if so , what did you think?
