The Go-Go'sLast week I was music surfing on Youtube, at the back of my mind was the thought that 80s music ladies were hotter than what we see today. I ran across some interesting stuff.
First up, the Bangles, tearing it up during this concert footage.
Here she is, front and center, in a fairly recent performance, at age 52. The years have been more than kind.
Interlude: I once heard WWE chairman Vince McMahon make the distinction between 'sports' and 'sports entertainment'. This was eye-opening, once I extended the idea to the difference between 'music' and 'music-entertainment'. I guess I prefer music. Particularly to the often vulgar antics of modern music entertainment.
Speaking of girl bands, and having fun, here are the Go-Go's, with comedian Jack Black as front man. It's big goof, and everyone is having a blast.
Jumping back to off-beat cameo appearances in a music video, check out the driver in this one:
If you like music entertainment (guilty pleasure), there is a time and place for it. It's called Glee. Here's a clip with Heather Morris, aka HeMo. She is a world class dancer, funny, and can carry a tune.
and Sonic Youth, just because. Below is one of the greatest covers ever recorded.
Only thing missing from this concert set was you, but you were here in my thoughts.
