I’m playing along with Whitney Houston’s How Will I Know this week for Xmas Dolly’s 80’s themed week as well as a new music meme over at Boo and Me.
I love, love, loved Whitney Houston and her music back in her pre-Bobby Brown days and this particular song is one of my favourites of her hits. It’s still such a great song and a fun video. I remember as a teenager really wanting that dress she wears, but the closest I came to it was a Chelsea Girl aqua blue number I’d proudly wear.
With white stilettos.
Which reminds me of this one time in band camp … ooh, hello … wrong blog post. Actually, there was this one very chilly evening when I wore that blue dress to a school dance and instead of wearing my boring donkey jacket, I asked my grebo brother if I could borrow his black leather jacket. He reluctantly agreed to part with his beloved jacket and I got to that dance thinking I looked very cool indeed. I hit the dance floor with my friends and was having a fab time.
Until I started to get a whiff of something really horrible.
My friend and I were all ewwww, who’s stinking up the dance floor? And, tried to dance away from the smell. Only it kept following us. So, we decided to investigate and trace where it was coming from. Imagine my horror when we found it was eminating from my brother’s leather jacket. The one that I was wearing. Eek. I was disgusted and livid and ended up riving it off in a huff and tossing it at my other brother who was there with his mates telling him to take it home. I froze my ass off the rest of the night, but it was bloody worth it for the sake of getting rid of that smell.
And maybe sorta rocking that Whitney look?
Anyway, enjoy the song while I cringe at the memory it brings up …
