Wilson Philips I LOVE YOU – you make me put on lip liner and rent a flat at Melrose Place
I like singing in the car.
But I don´t always do. Sometimes the mood just isn’t right.
However there is one song that I can´t hold myself back from, no matter how shitty I feel. I just have to turn the stereo up. Put my 90´s dark red lip liner on, roll down the window and sing (to the cars I´m passing) “Hold on”. Wilson Philips, I loved you from the first time I saw your video on MTV. I was 12, hooked on Melrose Place and I thought Jane Mancini was the vocal singer of your band. (This was before Google). I get especially into the song at 2.46 , BAAM I´m right there with them walking in a small miniskirt- telling people at the beach to “Hold on”.
Other things I daydreamed about back then:
“Will I ever be brave enough to wear red lipstick?”
“Will I ever have money to spend on fashion?”
“Will I ever have a refrigerator with a light that Jake can open at night?”
Carnie, Wendy and Chynna thank you for making such an awesome track that takes me back to the 90´s.
If you, like me, also watched Beverly Hills 90210, you might remember that Kelly dated Jake for one episode? Spelling produced both shows so it was a smart way to get Melrose started, and I´m sure that stunt attracted alot of 90210-ers over to Melrose. It sure worked on me at least.
(then they did the same thing to kick Models Inc off. Amanda was the cheif of staff at that modelling agency)
Check out Jake opening that refrigerator at 0.46 in this opening video
