Snow/England/Nostalgia... TOTPs?!

I was going to write a really serious article about something serious that is happening in the world today, but that is going to have to wait until I am in a really serious mood... Woke up to hearing that Jimmy Savile had sadly passed away this morning, and then seeing the snow falling rapidly outside my window lead to me spending about 3 hours of my life watching old Top Of The Pops Christmas specials on YouTube. Which then lead to just regular TOTPs videos...

I miss the England I grew up in today, so I'm just giving in to nostalgia, laughing my head off and enjoying all of the silly outfits and good music (as well as terribly bad music). Here are some gems, enjoy, while I waste the rest of my Saturday watching more and more.

The Stranglers - Golden Brown 1982

David Bowie - Starman 1972

The Rolling Stones - Let's Spend the Night Together
(OK - I know I wasn't born then, but who cares):

The Cure - Lovecats 1983
(I love how they make it painfully obvious that they are miming)

Spandau Ballet (cue snickers of laughter) 1982
