As Chris Rock’s momma puts it, Oh Laaaaaaawwwwwd!

I don’t care what you people say. The 80s rocked our socks. Here’s a video of 1987 #1 hit Lost in Emotion by Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam. The hair! The costumes! Gasp! The earrings!

They would return years later with Let the Beat Hit ‘Em, off their last album together, Straight Outta Hell’s Kitchen, but the best track was Let the Music Play, criminally ignored at radio. Try to get a copy on my recommendation – dated or not, it’s fantastic.
