We Had It All In Our Hands

As I've said before, it's all about the choreography. If you want to make it into the halls of Happy Monday make sure your dance moves are in sync.  Not only we do we get cheesy camera mugging from Friends we're also treated to thigh slapping and strutting around in tight red leather pants.  They managed a 7th place finish in the 2001 Eurovision contest.  Caution: Earworm Ahead.  Happy Monday!

Step Away From The Ledge

This lost hit features all the hallmarks of goofy 80's videos: teased up blonde hair, cocaine, guys with earrings in their left ear, hats (they were vogue) and white boy dancing.  The video also features a cliff hanger but stick around for the big "reveal" at the 2:55 mark.  Even I didn't see it coming.   Released in summer '82, the song reached #16 on the US mainstream rock chart. Happy Monday.

Yes, I know making fun of Jefferson Starship is easy.  Their repertoire speaks for itself.  Considering their pedigree it's a shame they would end up sounding like an amalgamation of every crappy hard rock seventies band of the time.  I'll leave it up to you to decide if Mickey Thomas is wearing the world's smallest tie or it's just tucked into his shirt (?).   Peaked at #29 (US) in the spring of 1981. Happy Monday.
