80s Music Video Sunday #24

Well gag me with a spoon! It's 80s Music Video Sunday, and if that's not, like, totally gnarly, well frankly, I don't know what is! Who can forget the invasion of the Valley Girls, introducing a variety of totally rad new words into the American lexicon. Like, for sure, we all got into it. I mean, back in those days, didn't we all want to be, like, totally bitchin'? Didn't we all just totally want to, like, hang out at the Galleria? Like, I'm so sure!

The whole valley girl era was, like, oh my god, totally tripendicular, and based on the lifestyle of rich girls living in California's San Fernando Valley. We like, totally used Moon Unit Zappa's hit single "Valley Girl" as our guide to all things valley. And for sure, Hollywood also, like, totally cashed in, releasing one of the most rad flicks ever, the totally awesome "Valley Girl", starring the way bitchin' Nicholas Cage. Like, oh my god! What a dude he was in that movie! He was like, totally gnarly, not like that Tommy dude, who was just grody to the max! I mean, like, barf me out the door! And duh, how could you make such a totally tubular movie like that without a bitchin' soundtrack, you know? I like, totally loved the music, like for sure! Totally rad. Totally.

So, duh, today's featured tune is like, totally from that movie. It's totally bitchin' and way awesome, I'm sure!



Melt with You
Modern English

Moving forward using all my breath
Making love to you was never second best
I saw the world thrashing all around your face
Never really knowing it was always mesh and lace

I'll stop the world and melt with you
You've seen the difference and it's getting better all the time
There's nothing you and I won't do
I'll stop the world and melt with you
(You should know better?)
Dream of better lives the kind which never hate
(You should see why)
Dropped in the state of imaginary grace
(You should know better?)
I made a pilgrimage to save this human race
(You should see why)
Never comprehending the race was long, long lost
(I'll stop the world)
I'll stop the world and melt with you
(I'll stop the world)
You've seen the difference and it's getting better all the time
(Let's stop the world)
There's nothing you and I won't do
(Let's stop the world)
I'll stop the world and melt with you

The future's open wide

(Let's stop the world)
I'll stop the world and melt with you
(Let's stop the world)
I've seen some changes but it's getting better all the time
(Let's stop the world)
There's nothing you and I won't do
(Let's stop the world)
I'll stop the world and melt with you

The future's open wide

hmmm hmmm hmmm
hmmm hmmm hmmm hmmm
hmmm hmmm hmmm
hmmm hmmm hmmm hmmm

I'll stop the world and melt with you
(Let's stop the world)
You've seen the difference and it's getting better all the time
(Let's stop the world)
There's nothing you and I won't do
(Let's stop the world)
I'll stop the world and melt with you
(Let's stop the world)
I'll stop the world and melt with you
(Let's stop the world)
I'll stop the world and melt with you
(Let's stop the world)

Am I glad I checked back to see if this week's 80s music post was up! Loved that post, couldn't stop smiling while reading it!

And I like TOTALLY love that movie-Nick was at his hottest there (unfortunately, it was all downhill from there) and just hearing that song sends me into paroxysms of 80s madness!!! I even remember that in the flick, that song played during a montage of Nick's (what was his character's name) and whatshername's relationship.

SIGH Totally awesome post!!!

Just remembered- Nick played Randy, right? Still can't remember the girl's name.

this is a college party song for me! Of course, most of the university days DID take place in the 80's... so... it's no wonder! Love this tune! It's an MP3 favorite for me!! Thanks for a great post, my dear! I'm reading it on a monday instead of sunday, but it is brightening up a rainy norwegian spring day!
