10 whole lists of ’80s and they just keep on comin’!
I’m relieved that today is ’80s day because I need some fun, laughs and rest for my arms. They are feeling very tight today (and for that reason the list will be a bit shorter again). Hmmm….and on the first day of summer. A coincidence when it comes to multiple sclerosis, lupus, heat and the sun? I think not.
Sooooo, what can I find to distract me from my symptomatic woes?:
1. Cruel Summer By: Bananarama
And so to start off the summer right, how about a summer-themed song? I sure hope the summer isn’t cruel to me (when it comes to my MS and lupus). And oh my goodness did I love Bananarama back in the day? Listening to them still gets me going a bit. Oh yeah. Their dancing is oh so cool as they walk together. I gotta admit–I wanted to walk down the street the same way with some gal pals of mine back in the day (and now too) just like they are and they aren’t the first ones to do that strut either. Did I just see a gas price of $1.48??? Wow, this really is old huh? Do you think they had as much fun as they look like they’re having? It’s true. It was really hard to do any physical work outside in the heat with such big hair. Wow. Lucky Mack Truck driver huh? Bet he thinks he’s gonna get lucky. Yep. That’s the Empire State Building in case we forgot. How many shots of that do we have to see?
2. Ghostbusters By: Ray Parker Jr.
Thanks to a friend online for bringing up this song/movie the other day and saying that she always thought when he sings, “Bustin’ makes me feel good” she thought he said, “Boston makes me feel good” because that’s what I thought too and I haven’t been able to stop chuckling about it ever since. Fun times! How could you forget such silliness EVER?! Ha ha ha! Hilarious special effects! Love the people that pop up out of nowhere to yell “Ghostbusters!”. Tee hee. Is he supposed to be a ghost? Get it?! Love seeing the clips from the movie. Makes me want to see it again. It’s been forever. OK. Why does he feel more like a stalker than a ghost? I’m sensing an overall ’80s theme here in my lists of lots of stalkers. What the heck? I can’t stop cracking up over this. Too hokey! I just have to wonder, is he afraid of ghosts? I just can’t figure it out. (Corey–is that Carly Simon in there?–What the?)…So if we don’t know who to call about ghosts then I think we have a problem at this point.
3. She Blinded Me With Science By: Thomas Dolby
Such a unique song. Awesome. Had no idea the video had a silent movie feel to it. Nice. Oh sure. She blinded him with science of the “showing some leg kind”. Funny. She’s quite the vixen. I still love to go around and say in the high pitched voice, “Blinded me with science”! It’s fun. You should try it. Oh the randomness is too entertaining. Loving this! I tell ya. It’s pure blasphemy and trouble to be wooed by a woman. We are trouble. Oh and I love his eye makeup and glasses. She’s the violin. Nice. Very creative. Worth the watch for sure! The doctor gets his “come-uppance!” I love it!
And thank you to the ’80s for more distracting fun! My hands and arms are now yelling at me. Time to rest them!
Yes, that is Carly. I think there are a ton of cameos in that one, actually.
