Dance Party, 10-06-06: Geeks and glasses

Donnie Iris

FANTASTIC, Fronty! Us bespectacled nerds -- and there are many of us -- can take solace in these three!

HE and I spent countless nights at his place listening to Donnie Iris and Elvis Costello while I was beating his ass at Blackjack in the 80s.

He's the music man, HE is, and these kinds of tunes plus Bowie, Supertramp, so many others, was just on all the time.

We rocked, we rolled, we drank more beer each night than was in his outdoor pool.

I always got the rotten end of the deal because I'd beat him at BlackJack and he'd always be doing the drinking.

Such is life.

Thanks for bringin' me back.

Hey, let's remember, geeks in black rim glasses get the chicks in VIDEOS, not in real life. Groupies scream at anyone who showed up on MTV, simply because if they were there, well, then, someone in charge said they were cool. But it's all novelty.

They made pretty cool music nonetheless, so there.

All I can say is that blonde chick in the Donnie vid is pretty hot, and I don't need my glasses to figure that out...

Holy Revnge of the Nerds BATMAN!
Leah is one of my top ten songs of all time. I could not even estimate how many times I have listened to it...and always at a 'spinal tappian' 11..cause its 1 better.
I have Someday on heavy rotation as well..
it is such an Everly/Holly sockhop back to a more innocent time UP song.
Elvis is one of my faves too. Veronica has to be one of the best pop songs ever. Within and I listened to him all through college when he was so fresh and cutting edge.What's so funny bout Peace Love and Understanding OH OHOH!
Great idea...geeks gotta rock!

I've always like Ah Leah, but I never knew Donny Iris looked so geeky. There was an advantage in not having videos for every song! But now I'm at the age where looks matter very little to me.
