Music Video Thursday: "Walk The Dinosaur"

And here we go yet again, back to the 80's...

I have no idea what it is about this song. By all rights, I should really hate this song. The lyrics make no sense. The title of the album has became one of my least favorite catch-phrases ever. The video is pure 80's cheese, with big hair, scantily clad dancers, white and nerdy guys desperately trying to look cool, a percussionist who only plays cowbell despite having a full complement of drums in front of her... and yet, the song (and video) is just so catchy, I just about can't stand it. From their 1988 hit album "What Up, Dog", here's Was (Not Was):

Boom, boom, ackalackalacka boom.

Believe it or not, I remember the song (but not the video). I think Tina Fay (SNL) might be one of the dancers. OK maybe not but it would be funny. Hope production on the CD is going well. Just talked to M
& D this evening about their big trip out here next weekend. We're all so sneeky.
