We Have Been Rick Roll'd

My 15 year-old discovered this gentleman yesterday and he is getting such a kick out of the whole "Rick Roll'd" thing. Now, I happened to have loved this song back in the day and thought his dance moves were really cool - back then. I've watched this video several times now and find myself sort of chorkling at the "roll" and also the high jeans Rick is sporting.

Does anybody out their remember this song? Anybody out there really like it way back when? I googled Rick Astley and he is still alive and kicking and doing some performing.

Please enjoy this interim blog post and see if it doesn't bring back some memories for the folks who knew him back in the 1980s and also a smile to the faces of those of you who don't know Rick Astley from a hole in the wall.

I remember it well! Although I wasn't really a big Rick fan, I quite liked the song. I'd forgotten just what those jeans were like and how rubbishy a dancer he was!

1980's bands are in the middle of a big come-back over here just now, a whole load of them have got back together and are touring. Hopefully, they aren't still wearing the fashions of the day! I remember THEM well too......and the hair! We may have thought otherwise at the time, but it was so not a good look!

I think we should go see a show Dot : ) That would be fun.

PS So, you are saying it isn't good to wear your pants that high? Hmmmmmmmmmmmm, I better fix that :)
