It may surprise some of you youngsters here but among Xers the Moody Blues were actually quite popular in the eighties.  There aren't many bands from the sixties that can say that.  Yes and the Stones come to mind.  It is a bit of a parody of what Xers experienced with the Boomers but parody often contains important truths.

I always preferred Wierd Al doing Madonna to Madonna herself but then I always had an odd sense of humor.

I don't think you understand exactly how popular Wierd Al was back in the eighties. Wink




He even does a passable Robert Palmer.

Again, Weird Al does it better. Smile   Many of us, at the time, wondered what would happen to him if Michael Jackson ever went out of favor.

If I remember correctly this is where the Boy George androgynous look came from.  It was a good song.

I had to do it.  By 1985 pop stars knew they had arrived when Weird Al did a parody.

Yes, but speaking as an Xer with Boomer parents they didn't always have much of a sense of humor.  You were most fortunate.
