Last weekend I spent an afternoon having fun with eighties’ retro tracks on You Tube. Out of the blue I decided to watch Toni Basil’s 1982 hit, Oh Mickey:
That in turn reminded me of Gwen Stefani’s 2005 hit, Hollaback Girl… (it’s all about cheerleaders, apparently),
which made me think about the second series of Heroes (Series 1 motto: Save the cheerleader, save the world) which was pretty disappointing compared to the first. Apparently it’s because the Hollywood screenwriters’ strike happened during the making of this series so all the good writing went flying out the window, kinda like Flying Man, Nathan Petrelli. At least the cheerleader, Claire ‘Bear’ Bennet, survives to make the third series, which will hopefully be better made than the last.
It’s amazing where one eightie’s hit will take you…
