Oh the Horror

Okay y'all - before you watch this horrible video, check out my earlier post, in which I ran a contest. I'll wait. Done?

I'm playing Sudoku this evening, laughing with my teenagers, when one of them comments on Little Guy's music and I ask who it is. Maybelline says, "It's Disciple." Sounds nasty to me, but alright. No clue what the lyrics are. And I reply, "Well, at least it isn't Air Supply." Now why would that be the first thing to pop out of my mouth? Why on EARTH would I mention Air Supply? And OF COURSE my daughter says (everybody together now) "Who's Air Supply?" And OF COURSE, good mother that I am, I pop over to YouTube and find their BEST video. And so you all aren't feeling deprived, I've posted it here, for your nostalgic viewing pleasure.
video Joan Marie, I think this is your fault, you and your '80's yearbook post. Yes, you.

This is a Real Player download, meaning some of you may not be able to view it, and for that you should be grateful. But if you just HAVE to see it, click HERE. Feel better now? I'll feel better when I can get it out of my head.

Until I write again ...

Yeah! That's showing 'em! Anytime they misbehave, play Air Supply!

I'm doing something similar with my 3-year old. When he refuses to get up, I say "if you don't wake up, Mommy is going to start playing 80s music videos". It works like a charm.

I'll take note that I shouldn't age myself in like manner.

Yikes.

I just LOVE torturing my kids with bad 80's music! But if you start them too little, they might grow to like it. Mine love Journey and ELO (70's - not so bad), because I weaned them on it. Heh.

*sniffles* I lurved Air Supply back in the day.

But torturing people with bad 80's music is SO easy - there was so much of it!

Melissa said...

Air Supply is so NOT bad 80's music...come one they are my favorite band...NOT! ;)

I used to cringe when I my aunt played this. Oh dear. And this was bad 70's music... late 70s.

Lori said...

You know, the music isn't so bad. It's the VIDEO that is bad! I had no idea that there were 27 people in the band Air Supply!
I just kept giggling cause the guy with the guitar looks like a young Jeff Daniels and the guy in the Red shirt reminded me of Richard Simmons!

Im hooked on Suduko!!

Christine said...

Ahhhh... 80's music... Air Supply...

We routinely embarrass our kids in public by singing some 80's song out loud. It is so much fun!!!

AS was my absolute fave band "back in the day"! I can hardly believe that it's been so long since "I'm All Out Of Love" graced the airwaves and played in my (very trendy at the time) cassette walkman.

I LOVED Air Supply!! They were the only band my parents would let me listen to in high school. I was really repressed. LOL

I saw these guys on late nite commercial tv a few weeks ago hawking an oldies collection. Criminy. I am SO not an oldie! Much...

I am soooooo cracking up! I LOVED Air Supply! I will take all the blame. And thank you for that lovely, nostalgic '80s moment. (BTW, what in the world did we do before You Tube?)

As for torturing your kids with '80s music, be careful what you wish for. I have a friend whose teenage daughter only listens to '80s music. Whoda thunk it?

That was just hilarious! That guy in the red shirt cracked me up. Oh man! Thanks I needed a good laugh tonight.

Lisa said...

Oh, Flea...I wish I could carry your smile in MY heart! *snicker snicker snort*

I love Air Supply! And all 80's music, for that matter!
