Your Weekly One Hit Wonder!

Well, sort of weekly....

Anyway, its a good one today. "It's Raining Men" by the Weather Girls.

Not only is this 1984 hit one of those timeless tunes everybody (EVERYBODY!) knows, but this the best bad video ever! I especially love the trench coats.

Enjoy!


On a whole other (less humorous) note: I love how this video reverses the traditional "average-looking male singer surrounded by beautiful, scantily clad women" dynamic. 1984 never looked so cutting edge-- well, not cutting edge exactly, but... interesting.

I love this song! It never fails to make me laugh. Just the bit about ripping off the roof and staying in bed... (and now I'm laughing!)
