Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy

I'm sure most people would agree that ghastly 1980's pop svengalis Stock, Aitken and Waterman were emissaries of Satan. Just thinking about Rick Astley dancing in a gormless fashion while belting out asinine lyrics is enough to prevent any erroneous pangs of nostalgia.

I do make an exception were Mel & Kim are concerned. 'Respectable' is a great pop song, even if it is as annoying as it is catchy.

Actually, if I'm being truthful, the best thing about it is watching Mels (now sadly deceased like MJ) bazoombas bouncing up and down like a pair of exuberant puppies. Jiggy jiggy ah.

I have a Mel & Kim's Greatest Hits CD (... what's the HTML I have to use to make the typeface of this paragraph very very small?)

Rick Astley is a fashion icon, a marvellous dancer and the greatest white soul singer of the past fifty years (put that in really huge typeface. Heh heh).

Rick did for polo neck jumpers what Hitler did for race relations.

I'm hoping to catch him on tour this year.

Hurrah! They keep in time to the drum beat brilliantly! Sad to hear they're dead. Is the rest of Kim still alive?

Arabella said...

So why do you think Astley wore the overcoat, hmmm?

KAZ said...

Bloody ell garfer - haven't we had enough of Scott, Aitken and Waterman on the telly recently?
Rick Astley (from round here) has now been reassessed and will not go down in history as a loser but what Betty said.

garfer said...


As regular as the drum machine. Extraordinary.


Shame he didn't wear the overcoat over his head.


Have the council erected a memorial to him? The local boy done good and fully deserves a traffic cone on his head.

MJ said...

Email me, bitch.

S.I.D. said...

Yes bitch. Do as yer bid.

She already has my bank account details,only fair she has yours too.

My, don't they bounce?

Piggy and Tazzy said...

But MJ's bazoomba's are artificial.

Do they have the same effect?

And she rose from the dead.

Rimshot said...

I couldn't stomach the video but did watch enough to agree regarding the jubblies bouncing.

If I see Rick Astley, I punch him in the throat.

MJ said...

Time's expired.

Your winnings in the Euro Millions have been moved on to our next contestant.

My norks are the real deal unlike Piggy's prosthetic penis.

geo said...

Yes, that was the MJ theme song.
