Dance Magic dance


So Kristin and I were chatting yesterday about random things like weekend plans when the subject of her yard came up.  She and her husband have a large shed in their backyard that they hate and want to tear down.  For as many times as I’ve been to her house – I can’t picture this shed.  Anywho – she made a comment that upon tearing down the shed, they would probably release a bunch of rabbits.  Apparently their shed has turned into a rabbit den? rabbit lair?  And then she said a rabbit LABYRINTH.

Here’s a fun fact for my readers: I love David Bowie.  Not many people know of my adoration of Mr. Bowie or just how long this love has lasted.

I think I fell in love with David Bowie in middle school when I watched Labyrinth.  There was something about his inappropriately tight pants and the way they hugged his bottom.  His hair defied gravity.  Oh Jareth, the Goblin King… how I remember you fondly.

And then there was the song.  You know.  THE song.  Dance Magic.

During they heyday of Napster, I had downloaded Dance Magic and burned it to a cd.  Also on that cd is the Neverending Story (try to get that song out of your head now).

Just the word Labyrinth triggered a need for me to listen to this song so I found the cd and almost cried when it wouldn’t play either song. The cd is badly damaged and I no longer have the song on my computer.  And now I can’t get it out of my head and have become obsessed with it.

So here you go:

Happy Friday!

  1. Holy crap, we watched that movie a bit ago. Fucked to the up! But fun to watch. I think I’d like to see it again with some extra…influences.

    Ha! I think watching Labyrinth under the influence as well as The Dark Crystal would be crazy! Maybe I’d understand some deep philosophical message…

  2. Every time I see a small glass sphere I think of Bowie in Labyrinth.

    Everytime I see spandex pants, I think of Bowie. 🙂

  3. It’s the power of the babe!

    You remind of the babe. What babe? The babe with the power!

  4. I just fell in love with you. That movie has such ties to my childhood, god I love it. And the song, oh the song! Ok, so MonsterRawr, Nanette, willikat, you and I all need to get together for a viewing of the Labyrinth. Shall we start planning?

    THANK YOU! I get really upset when people say they haven’t seen it or don’t really share the same affection for it.

    And I like that idea. F that blogging convention… we need a blogging Labyrinth meetup!
