a music video so bad it’s good

We've had this one playing in the house this weekend. It's rather catchy.

"I Wanna Love You Tender" with Armi and Danny in 1978. I especially love Danny's coloratura.

Wikipedia: The choreography of this video was particularly noteworthy. While it was apparently intended to be "erotic and tantalizing", in the eyes of many it principally succeeded in being hilarious.

  1. The choreography sure is hilarious rather than exciting or erotic. Have you heard of the Eurovision Song Contest? It is a competition every year when every European country submits an act with an original song and then each country awards each other marks. It is famed for having songs that sound like this but with really corny titles and words. The UK has won it at least five times. Norway was always famous for scoring a total of one point and then won it one year, the same year A-Ha exploded into the charts.

  2. I can't believe I'm gonna watch this after the lead-up it's been given…

    For some reason, Modern Talking comes to mind.I loved "Brother Louie" even though it got about zero airplay in the US. I've often used "Brother Louie" as my ID for personal ads, etc.Also, that song by Opus, "Live is Life", I thought would never go away. Even the title doesn't make any sense to me.

  4. I once had a "eurotrash" party and played music like this all night long! 🙂

    Oh, I love that eurotrash sound. I also love that eurotrash "trash", but I'd have to go private on a post to really talk about it. 😀 I imagine it was a great party.

  6. I have some photos that I can "rustle" up somewhere – some of which I am willing to post! 😆
