Friday Morning Videos: "Electric Blue"

Last week's comment about the hairiness of ZZ Top makes me want to remind you all that men's hair in the 80s came in many varieties, and more often than not was beautifully coiffed. Men (some of them, anyway) truly believed in their hair in the 80s, after a decade of letting it get long and shaggy and dirty, or just thinking that a blow-dryer would do the job. Sure, there were some holdouts who kept up those unwashed stylings (*cough* Steve Perry *cough*), but their were plenty who celebrated the new decade by showing off the possibilities of the perm.

Now, you're thinking to yourself, "he's talking about mullets, and man, they were lame." Not true! There's so much that the clever pop singer could do with the mullet. Consider Iva Davies's masterpiece, for example.

He had a pretty good voice, too.
