His Purple Badness|
I preach the Gospel of the Legwarmers
Bruthas and Sistas
Come join with me and proclaim the good news of the Legwarmers.
Who else will shine the light of "Eye of the Tiger?"
Who else will stand and proclaim the news of "Girls Just Wanna Have fun"
Let it ring from every mountain top to every valley of the "Paradise City."
That we will not be judged by the color of our skin, but the content of "Total Eclipse of the Heart."
In the words of the old African American spiritual, "Free at last, Free at last Thank God Almighty Let's Go Crazy!"
If you aint testifyin about this, all I can say to you is, "What you testifyin' about Willis?"
GB 80s Music
The 80s live in my soul
The first time I saw you, I wanted to melt with you. I love rock and roll and I know you do, too because I can see it in your eyes. In a big country, it's easy to get lost, but I found a paradise city that's a little on the dark side, but it's just like heaven to me. Everytime I think we're alone now, here comes Jack and Diane, shouting, "Let's go crazy!" Oh well, it beats dancing by mysellf. Call me if you want to ride the crazy train to the love shack--I'll have my legwarmers on and my jeans pegged. Rock on.
Cyndi you rock!!!! Wow what a show girl! Sing out girl, you are the legwarmers.
Wax on Wax off
LegWarmers-san. Keep practicing and work on the whooping crane form.
Legwarmarmers make me think of Happy Days.. oops wrong decade.
While attempting to catch flies with chopsticks, how about throwing in some rap like Run DMC, Rob Base, Public Enemy. Rap's first big hits came in the 80s.
But young grasshoppers you have all done well. Can't wait for many sequels
When Cindi Sindee sings her heartfelt rendition of 99 Red Balloons, gloved hands at the mike, the band kicked into high gear and the crowd bouncing as one, it is more than merely MTV nostalgia but also a call, if only for a moment, for peace and charity in a world gone retro bonkers.
Let others raise clenched club fists or brandish their heavy metal horns of anger. Let others pose as East Coast shadys in a West Coast drive-by. Let others, you know, represent!
For me, a child of the 60s looking back at the 80s, the only symbol is head tilted down and two fingers held aloft -- a peace sign proud yet defiant in the swirl of the pure pop beat.
Someday, if we all think real hard, the sky will be high enough for the balloons, all 99 of them, to float gently away, dots of red that teach the world to sing. In 'Warmer' harmony.
That is my dream, my Legwarmer testification. And if you don't agree, if you say, he must be crazy, that old man in the back there with the Martha Quinn in the corner of his eyes, all squint and VH1 classic in a Road Rules world, well, I'm just sayin', ya know?
