I turned on VH-1 Classic this morning to drown out the sound of my 7yo daughter complaining about her clothing choices. (And so it begins - jeezus h. christmas, I thought we had at least until 10 or 11 before this started.) The first video I saw is one that I see every time I turn on VH-1 Classic, seriously. Every time. I'm not exaggerating. Heavy rotation. What gives? It's widely regarded as one of the worst songs ever recorded. Maybe they're trying to drive ratings down so they can kill the channel and cut costs.
Starship built a city, all right. It's called Boiling Suckburgh, in County Grundle, just north of Shiteford-On-Scrote.

My favorite moment is at 2:03. My wife saw it and said, "She's kind of mannish." Just a bit. But I do like her hair.
Worthy of note: lead singer Mickey Thomas is from Cairo (pronounced "Kay-roe"), Georgia, home of the Cairo High School Syrupmakers, as mentioned in last week's post about lame school mascots. Before joining Starship, Thomas sang with Elvin Bishop's band and is the lead vocalist on their hit, "Fooled Around And Fell In Love."
