so i seriously feel like i GREW UP in the 80's. like... a true 80's child. granting, yes, i was born in '84 but most of my real formative years were more in the 90's. still, having older sisters as some of your main idols, you learned from them. so, tears for fears, OMD, pretty in pink, madonna, breakfast club, simple minds (seriously, don't you forget about me was one of my favorite songs when i was like 8 years old), the clash, cars, and a-ha were my growing-up culture. my poor mom. madonna wasn't such a good role model. she couldn't have been thrilled by all of it (i mean, this was in the thick of madonna's pointy-bra phase). nevertheless, i turned out ok. i think.
i came across this video tonight and had to post it because it is so 80's and SO corny. like gag corny. but i have always liked this song. just never knew this corny video went along with it. oh wang chung.
