At number six on the charts in New Zealand on 6 June 1982 was Dr Hook and Baby Makes Her Blue Jeans Talk.
I’m pretty sure that this video can be summarised by watching this for about three minutes:
Again, like the previous video, I don’t want to charge in like a herd of kittens and ruin a sophisticated metaphor, but what is being suggested here, by Mr Dr Hook, is that the blue jeans the young lady in this video is wearing are “saying something” to the gentleman who observe her passing by.
Although it is hard to translate denim on bottom I think the following messages might be evident:
1. high waisted jeans don’t really go out of fashion if you’ve got an ass that won’t quit
2. the human capacity to admire the body parts of other human beings is pretty weird if you, say, fixate on a bottom for three minutes in a pop video.
Bottoms seem to have been pretty big in June of 1982. At number nineteen on the chart in New Zealand was the (thankfully) little heard Queen song Body Language. Aside from being awful, it is a song that features a lot of wet bottoms. For a song so transparently about sex this is a video very unlikely to light your flame (well, maybe it does, and – if it does – please don’t tell me).
