Video Premiere: Chromeo “Don’t Turn The Lights On” Funk It Or Dunk It?

I am sooooo loving this!  It has 80's funk and new wave all over it.  Hard to believe this song is new.

"Don't Turn The Lights On" is the latest song from Chromeo and I will be surprised if you don't like this jam.  It is from the upcoming CD "Business Casual" and should be hot as well.

So.....Funk it or Dunk it?

Video~Tony Romo Does “Sweet Child O’Mine”

Tony Romo jumped on stage with Steel Panther, an 80's rock cover band, in Dallas over the weekend. He performed "Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns n Roses with the band.

This weekend, we enjoyed Tainted Love, an 80's cover band.   We have a feeling Tony Romo would like them too.  For now, enjoy Tony Romo belting out the G n R classic.

Here is Janet Jackson last night in New York at the red carpet screening of "Why Did I Get Married Too?" and her outfit...well....

Didn't she wear outfits like that back in the 80's?  I could have sworn an early video of her she wore something like that, just more colorful.-Dr.FB

Adam Lambert's Debut Album Cover Art

Here is the cover for Adam Lambert's CD cover, "For Your Entertainment" and it screams 80's cheese.

I swear, he looks like he could be a member of Poison from back in the day. I don't know. I am just not feeling it. Just. Not. Feeling. It. 

What do you think?-Dr.FB

UPDATE: Adam Lambert just twittered this message regarding the CD cover: "Thank you to those who appreciate and understand that the album cover is deliberately campy. It's an omage to the past. It IS ridiculous"

Yes it is Adam. Yes. It. Is.-Dr.FB
