Asymmetrical hair–check. Angular metal and glass furniture–check. Neon lighting–check. Breakdancer chained to an electric chair–check? Why worry about the details…. When it comes to music video posses, Klymaxx may very well have set some kind of record. And even though the title of the piece is “Meeting in the Ladies Room,” there sure are a lot of men dressed in ’80s-tastic club wear. One more important factoid: the video was directed by Devo’s Gerald Casale! Don’t miss today’s Friday Video Pick!
This track from 1985 made it to #4 on the Billboard R&B chart. One listen and you can see why. And one look at the video–WOW! In terms of fashion, there are some seriously flashy pieces in the club. Shoulder pads, high-waisted pants, sequins and crop tops all make an appearance. Then there’s the ladies room–FABULOUS with its grid walls and well-stocked perfume that probably smelled of glitter and money.
Have a looksy and a listen, and we guarantee you’ll be dancing and saying “Don’t slap me, cause I’m not in the mood” all day! Happy Friday and Enjoy!:
