    And the regular hair clips?


    My hair looks great in banana clips. I wish they'd come back.

(1983)

    Not only did I know that was Lisa Hartman, I also remember that she basically had that mullet going for the entire decade.

    Three other things that they left out:

    1. Leg warmers
    2. Lipstick with a metallic luster
    3. Sweat shirts with tights
    They mentioned leg warmers in the beginning after sweatbands. I had to check because I was going to say the same thing.

    I swear sweatshirts with tights is still a thing.

    True fact- that video ruined his career. It was like a cautionary tale in the business for a few years after.

    Thanks. I was too lazy to figure out how to post YouTube videos.

    Indeed, poor Mohan... I mean Billy's career never recovered.

    Really, prancing ruined his career? I guess prancing isn't considered very badass rock'n roll.

    I think I said it a while ago, but back in the early 1980s, I even wore those half shirts that were popular for about 3 months. I even had one that was mesh.

    WCG is right. Squier even mentioned that during an interview. And it's even worse than prancing - I'm not sure what I would call it. I really liked Squier, too. One of my favorite songs is "In the Dark". Anyway, here is the horrific video in question:

    I retract my request for pictures and am demanding a video of Mo prancing instead.

    Yep, and and it reminds me of Abracadabra by Steve Miller. Lame.

    I still love Billy Squier even after that video.

    My hair looked great teased and in a side pony and I rocked the shit out of giant hoop earrings (come find me Sput) and leg warmers and stir up pants and jelly bracelets and all the rest. Every decade has something ridiculous look at the 70's! lol I saw some shoes when I was shopping Saturday and thought damn here come the 90's again!
