Sunday Night Video: Two Tribes

Megan did a meme in which she detailed the most embarrassing song she ever personally owned.

Her choice was Two Tribes by Frankie Goes to Hollywood, which reminded of the iconic video that went with that song, and I mentioned that to her in the comments section... remarking that as I remembered it, I was able to place a number of different combatants into the ring within the video. Megan suggested I write a post about that, but I don't think this is exactly what she had in mind.

She was embarrassed to own it, but in the UK, it was one of the top 30 selling singles of all time... so it had to be popular with someone.

I had the hardest time with that meme, because I'm not really embarrassed by any of my music! But that was the most "out there" 12-inch that I had.

I like the sound of the song though..I don't skip channels if it's on the radio.

I might do a search on a track I own which would embarrass me, but well they're probably just on some collector's cd from the early 90s.
I still like all my singles (there aren't that many), including the MIB track, and eiffel 65's blue-da-ba-dee ;)

Megan: I wrote a post like that way back in 2006 (not part of a meme), so I totally understand. *looks it up*

Arjan: I was almost expecting you to bring up the Venga boys there ;)

hahaha well I don't own a Venga Boys track..I did however see them live once..for 1 track, because after that they got 'thrown' of the stage by a beer shower. The organizer threatened that they wouldn't come back if we didn't stop throwing beer, so he got his share too.

As bad as it is, it is party music.

They totally deserved that.
