Sometimes, when I’m working with the OBG’s, listening to the soft rock radio station, I get a glimpse into what I’d be like had I come of age in the 70s/80s. 

Song: “One More Try” by George Michael.

What I’ve learned about 1980’s Meredith: I’d totally do George Michael.

It’s Friday!

Okay, so there’s a lot of weird stuff on youtube. Given.  But this is maybe the most bizarre video I have ever seen (and once, I youtubed a bunch of Enya videos — have you ever seen an Enya video? Talk about fucked up…).

Anyway, this little gem is Bonnie Tyler singing “Against the Wind”, wearing, what appears to be some type of Medieval wench/pirate outfit.  Meanwhile, in the background, clips from some 1980’s movie about, one can only assume, some parable of Capitalism, nuclear power plants, and…hang gliders?

Lionel Richie doesn’t get any respect.  What’s up with that? Is it because once upon a time he used to dress

like this?

Or maybe it’s because he raised this?

Regardless, all this Lionel Richie discrimination is totally unfair, because, as corny as he is, there is no way you can listen to one of his songs without smiling.  I’m sorry, it just can’t be done.  You try singing “you’re once, twice, three-ee tii-iimes a lay-ed-dee” without flashin’ a little smile.

The Lionel Richie is Actually Awesome song collection is way too long and extensive to list here, but here’s my favorite:

Old Men New Kids on the Block were on the Today Show this morning.  It was like watching a Celebrex commercial.  You know how there’s been a revival to bring the 80’s back? I think this appearance just killed that revival…
