Freddie Mercury or Boy George: Who is the fairest of them all?

Two Divas: Freddie Mercury and Boy George. Two videos and the question: who is the fairest of them all? For the final one on one of the year, I chose two videos that made an impact on me when I was a child. Both videos were topping the charts in 1984 (I was 7 years old) and they are among the first music videos I remember. I adore both groups and songs and especially both front men so I thought it would be nice to end the year deconstructing them. “I WANT TO BREAK FREE” – QUEEN The song is Read more »

The film cocktail is a classic 80s chick flick, and there are 3 important things I remember about it – #spoiler alert (although I think since the movie was released in 1988 you Read more »

One on One: Dead or Alive

One on One: Dead or Alive

We take a look at two videos by the band Dead or Alive, “You Spin Me Round” and “Lover Come Back to Me” and analyze them thoroughly. For the second post, I thought I would take on a fascinating challenge. Yes, it involves the band Dead or Alive and their biggest hit “You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)” and follow-up single “Lover Come Back To Me”. I didn’t choose “Brand New Lover” because I do not like to do what is expected of me.
