80's Corner

A music "wave" overtook the world in the mid 1980's. To black guys with long flowing hair, dancing together in bicycle pants, "singing" hit after hit after hit. It seemed like everything Milli Vanilli did or was involved in was successful. Then, it happened. One night, during one of their shows, the record skipped.

A whirlwind of news, rumors, and scandal replaced Milli Vanilli's music. The two "singers" were disgraced - it turned out that the real singers were two German dudes who weren't so photogenic, so the record-company that signed them decided to put two easier on the eyes frontmen in their place ... of course, these front-men couldn't really sing, apparently.

Once in a while, I still hear a Milli Vanilli song on the radio, and it makes me a laugh a little bit.

I had no idea why anyone liked them anyroad. Garbage. I think one of them is dead now...not that they were necessarily really alive...;-)

I remember that happening to Milli Vanilli.

Today, if you don't lip synch your music, you are a loser. Funny how things work out that way HA
