So while I was taking a break from work today, I stumbled upon a classic Christmas tune that I LOVE to sing in the car. After seeing the video again (which I don’t believe I have in a decade or two) I couldn’t sing along because I was laughing all the way through it.
Oh yes, it’s George Michael and his pal Andrew with a bunch of friends having a grand ole time in the mountains… sipping wine in a ski chalet and giving “come hither” looks to the camera. An 80’s masterpiece.
Back when this song was popular, I was a teen in high school and thought George Michael was actually a straight male.
He fooled all of us I tell you!!
He with the Barry Gibb hair and Dentyne smile (If you don’t know who Barry Gibb is, or what Dentyne was… well, you suck. No, just kidding. …ok, maybe not.)
Oh, how this song brings back memories. “Oh, here’s this pin! Please wear it. Oh, you tramp, you Flashdance Queen…! Why, I wasted a perfectly good rhinestone pin I COULD HAVE WORN!! or at least given to someone BETTER than YOU.” Pshaw.
1984 was a good year. I remember Christmas of 1984. I remember wearing my Guess Brand jeans, and my off the shoulder pink sweater from “The Limited”, complemented by my lime green plastic hoop earrings. I probably just celebrated one of my friends birthdays with a Smurf cake, and I am definitely sure that I had Calvin Klein Obsession perfume on my holiday gift list, along with the soundtrack from the movie, “Against All Odds”.
That was 25 years ago.
I am officially ancient.
