Blast From the Past

Heh. I remember watching MTV for HOURS waiting for this video to come on. Even in 6th grade, I knew comic-book romance could never die. Pretty much one of the best videos ever made, really – I mean, sure the effects are little dated, but there was an actual story. Plus the dude was a hottie. 😉

    Heh – I think it came out in 1985? So yeah, 5th or 6th grade for me depending on what part.  Still feels like just yesterday though, doesn't it?

    I'm trying to remember if I was hot for any particular videos on MTV or if it was general lurve for all things video killing the radio star. Ah, those were the days. Big hair, big shoulders, big poufs, blue eyeshadow that I totally would have worn if my mom had let me wear make-up before 1988…. Ooof. That hurt to admit.

    Heh. It was this and Duran Duran for me, I think. And then eventually Aerosmith, but that was a bit later. 🙂

    Yes! Great video…I was so glad when he showed up at her apartment at the end *sigh* I had a major crush on this guy and from what I understand, he's STILL a hottie! Great song too. *goes off to find it on her MP3 player*

    Yeah, he's still pretty good looking. He was born in 1959 I think, so guess he's pushing about 50.

    And whee, he's on Facebook. Or he's got a page there or whatever. LOL.
