Remember The Time: Flashdancing, A Bar Party, Stalkers--Oh, My!

Monday, November 17, 2008

"Why Me?" has been my selfish whine for the last couple of days ("why do I have a messy roommate...for the third time in a row?", "why do I have to take Stats next semester?", "why doesn't he call me?"...) so I thought it fitting that this remember the time vid moment would be dedicated to the 1983 Irene Cara vid, "Why Me". Coming off of her Flashdance high, Irene released this little hi-NRG gem at the height of her recording career. While it went in limbo on the charts, this has always been one of my favorite songs by her. The vid is mainly Irene traipsing around New York City looking for theatre auditions, swinging on light posts, shivering and complaining about her sorry soon-to-be ex-boyfriend...oh, and there is a guy "stalking" her throughout who ends up in the end--being her new boyfriend, go fig. It's the quintessential 80's rom-com vid done by almost every female singer at that loves. I have a fondness for the part where she goes in the vacant bar and grabs the know that is really some apple juice spiked with Crown Royal...
