I'm going to be spinning at the Madewell store in SoHo (on Broadway at Broome) again on Wednesday, 12/23 from 4 to 8 pm. Come by, get those last minute presents & say hi!
Back in the day if you'd have said you were a Kate Bush fan, I would've just written you off as a nerdy theatre major or something. I just didn't really get her whole deconstructed literary ballerina thing & I was also sort of a dick.
Since then, I've grown up (a bit) & gone back & listened to her & found lots of great songs -- like this one! Someone needs to remix this mother with a really good beat so it's easier to dance to though.
Sure we all remember Tracey Ullman's version, but did you know that Kirsty MacColl wrote it & sang it first?
I like 'em both but this one is less brassy & silly. It's got heart & sweetness. It doesn't try to be cute.
Seriously how cool is she, is he? I was admittedly pretty confused by Annie when I first saw the "Sweet Dreams" video. Why would a woman dress like that?
"Dumb hearts get broken just like china cups" And this video -- I love the video to this song! She's both the guy & the girl! It totally twisted my brainz. Did you catch some of those new wave cameos?
I've got to end it here with possibly THE sexiest lady of the 80s -- Miss Debbie Harry. I love that this song is just so shamelessly girl group stylee.
You know, listening to Blondie as a young, impressionable kid probably made me want to move to NYC in the first place. Because I always considered myself somewhat of a badass, this line has always stuck with me: "when I met you in a restaurant you could tell I was no debutante."
Here's Blondie performing on some TV show & Debbie is hella sweaty.
And this? Well this is totally unrelated to this post & awesome.
