I was browsing through my mp3 selection on my way home from work today and strolled across this gem from 1986:
To me, the song and the video are always linked. I was about 8 when this came out, and we didn’t have MTV at that time…but my super-cool cousin (who was in junior high at the time) did. Anyway, at the time I obviously knew who Chevy Chase was – Three Amigos was out around the time… I didn’t know what Paul Simon looked like, and at my young age I did not understand lip-synching at all – so for a few years I really thought “that Paul Simon guy looks just like Chevy Chase!”
I also at that time thought the lyrics to Aerosmith’s “Dude Looks Like a Lady” were “Do the Nekkid Lady” – and get your minds out of the gutter – I thought the “Nekkid Lady” was a dance. You know, like “The Twist” or later, “The Achy-Breaky”.
Ah, the naivete of my Alabama childhood….
