Let’s All Be Amazon Alien Beauties!

Pulled out some older CDs for fun today while working. The first was Donald Fagen. Some people are going “Who?” (Steely Dan might ring a bell or two. )

I’d forgotten how much I liked a couple of his CDs from the eighties. When I went to look up the videos to my two favs– Tomorrow’s Girls and New Frontier, I came across a bunch of fun, 80s videos. Thought I’d give you guys a trip down memory lane– well, those of you old enough to remember the 80s.

And speaking of that decade, I have to share. My daughter’s highschool principal was going over the dress code in their auditorium and started talking about flip flops… only like me, she’s a child of the 80s and we called them thongs. Tip: Don’t call shoes thongs around today’s teenagers…. That poor lady.

Here are the videos. The Post title inspiration came from the last video which will pull up when you click on the link. Have fun!

1st Donald Fagen.

And this one? I asked my husband if he remembered this video once and he just said, “Legs.”

    Do I remember the eighties?


    I only wish I could forget. Those years were all about the angst babe. The angst.

    I was a teenage drama queen.

    speaking of thongs and flip flops in the 80’s, my reputation was enhanced when visiting friends in Edinburgh on my big back packing excursion. I declared that I had brought ‘rubber thongs’ to wear in the hostel showers to avoid picking up any nasties. Of course what they heard was that I had brought rubber g-strings for the showers and what I meant was I had brought rubber flip flops! Alas my studly reputation did not last long and certainly never came to fruition in real life 🙂

    Drama? I was busy falling in love with a man eight years older than myself. Talk about scandal. Course, we’re still together. 🙂

    OMG, the rubber thongs story is hilarious!!Thanks for sharing it!

    You are not a freak, Dana. I love a lot of the music myself.

    I think this is a bit much for some computers to load… didn’t think of that. I may end up taking some down.

    Those songs really bring back memories. I love the rubber thong story. I am guilty too, I call flip flops thongs too. I love 80’s music.
