Oh, how I pity you bloggers who weren’t even born in 1983. Sure, you have nice skin and your whole life in front of you and a bunch of other crap like that, but can you remember watching German pop singer Nena‘s 99 Luftballons video on brand-spanking-new MTV whenever the network wasn’t playing that clip of a rocket taking off? I think not!
I’m quite amused by this story about her. Basically she told a bunch of German insurance salespeople to get up and dance — you know, because there was music and all — and they freaked out. Get over yourselves, German insurance salespeople! I can’t blame her for getting drunk before facing this crowd. “German insurance salespeople” sounds like the kind of audience that musicians must endure if they go to hell. You know that Satan totally has a warped sense of humor. Repent, Keith Richards, repent!
In other music news, blogger Chronicle of Habit did a great post on one of my favorite singers, the eccentric Kate Bush. It’s been too long since I saw the Wuthering Heights video with Kate’s interpretive dance of ballet and insanity. Check it out!
