Wild Wild West

This song has haunted me for years and my best friend Angelina sent me this the other day to remind me of it. Its not just the song itself. Back in college Ange, who can out eat anyone I know and still has abs of steel, would get hungry around 3 a.m. Apparently she would get lonely too. On a number of occasions I would wake up to that song blaring in my room. She would use it as a snack alarm to wake me up and once the small seizure that was induced from getting ripped out of a REM cycle was over I would open my eyes to see her standing there with the light on and holding a box of cereal and a few bowls. With 'living in the WILD WILD WEST screaming from the speakers. It wasn't only used for cold cereal hour but as a morning alarm as well. Not that we were really waking up to go to class that year...we mostly watched MTV, did dance work out videos and drove around in her station wagon. Oh those were the days, and that song is tied to some of the most vivid memories of my freshman year of college.

I had no idea that what I thought was a fairly normal-sounding song would become such a bizarre music video. I also can't believe I've never seen this video before today. And I grew up with MTV, dang it.
Thanks for creeping me out.

Oh my gosh, I forgot about this song! And how creepy the adrogenous legs and arms are!
