Today in music history: 1984

Today we go back a long way, to 1984, and find:


"Hello" by Lionel Richie

Teehee.  This song, oh my.

The song itself, I guess, isn't terrible.  It's vaguely stalkery, but mainly a story about a guy wanting to meet a girl he's watch from afar.  And who doesn't like to randomly burst out into "Hello!  Is it me you're looking for?" on occasion?

The video though, goes into full on creeper mode.  The girl in the song is the Lionel Richie's student, and she's blind.  And he follows her everywhere, and calls her in the middle of the night.  Tres stalkery.

So amusing to me, I must say.
