I was thinking how much that video made me think of Bruce Weber, and lo and behold...
I like the handwritten explanation
This band kept The Pogues from Christmas No. 1. For that, they shall never be excused...
Good Jam though!
@Rialobran I'm one of the bubbles.
yummy video, I wish I had been alive in the 1930s (or 1920s really much more my style if I were invited to parties). I also wish I had been around in the 1980s and 90s as far as getting invited to parties with beautiful people and retrochic-contemporary-pop music. I wasn't, But I'm dancing to this. Well, I am making up moves as I move from coffeemaker (machine, not personal slave) to desk. As grandma would have said. "Giros, os rapazes" Yes, aren't they? ;-)
I'm more on the side of the Pogues (nodding @lukeduggan2006) but as their songs go this was one of two I liked when they first came out. I'm up to way more than half a dozen now.
@jnsvalente Parties in the 80s were a response to the Thatcherite greed; so they were pretentiously self indulgent but with a sense of self deprecating irony.
@Bukowski You must have moved in different circles to me. Pretentiously self-indulgent meant putting your blue label Thunderbird in a glass.
@AlicejustMay At the parties I frequented in the 80s we put Vodka in a dog bowl.
I@Bukowski ...ah ... I rest my case.
one of my favs!
ahhh, these were the days!!! Takes me back to some damned fun times!
