Way I see it, there's two reactions to that. "Huh?" and "Auugh! Bad 80's music flashback! Get out of my mind! GET OUT OF MY MIND!!"
Obviously, I'm going for the latter.
It's Michele's fault, really. She's the one doing 2004 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee entries. Causing me, in my not quite awake/sobered up state, to try to remember if Prince's extremely sucky, monosylabic interview back in the day was with Don Cornelius on Soul Train or Dick Clark on American Bandstand. So, hit TV Tome for a list of guests from Soul Train (not sure the official site even has such a thing), and hit season 12, 1982, featuring among others The Time performing that little ditty from the title, and Vanity 6 with "Nasty Girl." Oh, and The Dells popped up here and again, if you check the list.
I'd point to an exact link, but after the multiple references to (among others) Teena Maria, Evelyn "Champagne" King, Shalamar, DeBarge, Whodini, The Fat Boys. . . I'm kind'a in nostalgia meltdown mode right now. Sorry.
This is also preventing me from writing about the very entertaining but damn they need a bigger space Blogger Reading last night. But, oddly, I'm fairly certain someone else with a blog will do so.
