It seems that everywhere I go lately, it's the 1980s all over again. While taking my daughter to her tae kwon do class this evening, we came across Rick Springfield singing "Jessie's Girl" on the radio. (Damn, Rick Springfield was hot.) And earlier today, at the gym, I heard both David Bowie's "China Girl" (a classic) and Duran Duran's "Hungry Like the Wolf" (ditto). So, I figured I'd share. (Btw, I don't know about you guys, but I miss the old MTV, the one that showed great and, okay, not-so-great music videos, and only music videos. I still love Toni Basil singing "Mickey" in that cheerleader getup.)
Note: I wanted to share the original video of Bowie singing "China Girl" (which you can watch here), but got the old "embedding disabled by request" message. So you'll just have to settle for this live version, from Bowie's "Serious Moonlight" tour, which I saw when it was at Madison Square Garden.
Got a fave 1980s video or song you want to share? Leave a comment (preferably with a link).
