Blue Red

Victoria wood.

I've just been watching 'an audience with Victoria Wood' this afternoon from 1988. This song made me laugh just as much today as it did when she first performed it in the early 80's!

The Ballad of Barry and Freda (Let's Do It)
Blue Red

Who were your 80's pin ups?

Here's a list of people I had pinned up on my wall.

In no order -

Andy Taylor
Bryan Adams
David Sylvian
John Cougar Mellencamp
Marc Almond
Ian Astbury
Andrew McCarthy
Rick Springfield
Pete Murphy
Richard O' Brian (as Dick Turpin)
Michael J Fox
Morten Harket
Christopher Atkins

(btw. Bryan, John C M., and Rick Springfield were virtually unheard of in the UK at that time. I used to be able to buy an American magazine from a newsagents near my college. I think it might have been called 'Noise' or something like that.)

Who's on your list?
