Today we travel back to 1982, when Bananarama belted out the lyrics to “Shy Boy” while making over a nerdy office worker. That’s right–the video features a man makeover, as well as some pretty interesting tropical backdrops. The “shy boy” in today’s Friday Video Pick is vocalist Terry Sharpe, who went on to form the group The Adventures. At the time, he was dating Bananarama vocalist Sara Dallin. Watch as this fashionable girl band cleans up his look, forces him to work out, then loses him to an office secretary. But not before throwing buckets of water on the happy couple…
Below we see the fabulously tribal-tropical single cover for “Shy Boy,” which features stylized fish and birds, as well as bananas. Would you expect anything less from Bananarama?! This single came from the group’s debut album Deep Sea Skiving.
Enjoy this peppy track, and stock up on hair product. The video will make you want to tease your locks, then tie them back with ripped cloth. And don some breezy island-wear with a punk twist. Happy Friday!
