Tune for Tuesday

Thanks to all of you for not laughing at me too hard at my dance video yesterday. Though I have to say, my hits tripled! Kevin Costner did say, “If you shake it, they will come.” Or something like that. One of the clips was filmed in Iowa!
If you missed me shakin’ it, the video clip is in the post below. I had a few comments about "The Reflex" clip, so today’s Tune for Tuesday is by a longtime favorite band of mine, Duran Duran. I had their poster on my wall in junior high. I spent most of my junior high looking at teenybopper and music magazines for pictures and stories about Simon LeBon and John Taylor. I was glued to Mtv watching their amazing music videos. I’ve seen them live in concert four times (the top right photo was taken before a Duran Duran concert). I own most of their CDs and cassettes. I primarily listen to rock music, but Duran Duran will always be one of my favorite bands!
"The Reflex" was Double Duran's first US hit.
Dananana doo doo doo doo, dananana. The Reflex. The Reflex. The Reflex. Flexflexflexflexflex.

The Reflex was my favorite song at that time. I would get so excited when I saw those diagonal fuzzy lines on MTV! I had a thing for Roger Taylor, the dark, quiet drummer. Went to a concert when I was 12 and he waved at me! Honestly, he did!!!
