i was kind of a weird teenager. "yeah, yeah, so was i," i can hear you say. let me explain...
during the summer of 1992 i listened to two albums, back to back, several times a day, every day, over and over all summer.
i took my walkman and these 2 tapes EVERYWHERE. we vacationed on the florabama coast (aka the redneck rivieria) and i would stay inside the condo listening to my skinny puppy/wham! loop while my brother and sister were soaking up the sun.
for a teensy little taste of the fun i had that summer, watch these videos. i've included the infamous "banned" video for worlock, my favorite track off the skinny puppy album. i didn't know too much about them at the time, but apparently they were staunch vocal opponents of animal cruelty. interestingly enough, i stopped eating meat that same summer. coincidence?
unfortunately i couldn't find a video for credit card baby, one of my favorite tracks off the wham album. i did find a homemade video for heartbeat made of clips from my little pony tales, but in the end i decided to go with this rainbow-soaked lip synching dance party extravaganza performance of freedom.
enjoy. and then enjoy again. and again. and again.
