YO!

Everybody's doing the brand new dance nowww, common baby do the locomotion......

This song reminds me of days with Dirty dancing, Grease, Breakdance (the movie).....easy days!

When we were really young, my dad used to record MTV when he travelled and then we would jut sit and watch all the old tapes over and over again. There was one song we really like 'You talk too much, you never shut up! Hey you over there, I know about your type, you're like the independent network news on Channel 9, everywhere that you go, no matter where you are at, I say you talk about this and you talk about that!' Lol, I still remember the rap.

There was Paula Abdul singing 'Rush rush, hurry hurry lover come to meeeeee' and Madonna singing 'Cherish is the word I use to remind me ooofff, your looooove'.. and Scary Grace Jones with the unique haircut and weird videos....and Eurythymics with 'Sweet dreams are made of these or Heaven must be missing an angel'

But then some of the VHS tapes got dirty. Also the househelp, Joy, used to hide some in the bathroom under the pipes and when we found them...there was mould all over.

I'm still waiting for my new camera to arrive, hope your week started off on a good note :).

OOOOHH I found the video for SHUT UP!! Don't you just love Youtube!!!

lollll....the song sure does remind me of GREASE. Is it just me, or do u NOT get tired of all these oldies??? I just love them...they were innocent in a very silly way! Unlike modern music of today...

"Come on baby, do the locomotion...
