Who doesn't?

And, proving once again that the '80s were a musical wasteland, some orginal brokeback cowboys:

Need more evidence to convict the '80s of musical suckitude?  How about some Falco (RIP):

Now, personally, this video's redeeming quality (beyond the generous displays of cleavage) comes from the intro - the drawings of Stephansdom (there's tons of skulls and skeletons in its basement catacombs - I've seen them), and the Prater Ferris Wheel at the Viennese amusement park where I mis-spent some summer afternoons riding said wheel, go-karts, and bumper cars - and playing slot machines - in 1974.

What, no Milli Vanili, Duran Duran or Wham? Thy list is incomplete...

Call it the case of the morphing (some might say wandering) blogpost - it originated with the picture, which begat the music video with a similar title, which begat a discussion of '80s music, begatting Der Falco, and my time in Europe.

But really, adding MV, D², and Wham to the evidence list to show the dearth of quality musical output in the '80s would've been overkill.

The case is closed, ipso facto, by one simple point: The Eagles did not release any albums in the 1980s.

But, I can't tell you why.
