Old School Friday: If Mama Only Knew

Today's Old School Friday theme is "If mama only knew..."

According to Opinionated Black Woman:

The theme this week is If My Mama Only Knew…if she only knew that I was shaking my tail all over the University of Missouri-Columbia campus to this song, she woulda kept my ass at home!
Then she served up "Da Butt" by E.U. Well played, OPW!

My problem is that the music I was listening to in high school and college wasn't particularly shocking. Earnest, yes. Shocking, no. I mean, yeah, I danced to "Da Butt," too, but Mom likely found that more silly than shocking.

I'm thinking she found a lot of my musical interests silly. Case in point: my fascination with New British Invasion bands with their androgynous looks and warbly sort-of singing. I've talked abou this before on this blog. I loved (and still do love) The Cure. But had Mommy seen this video featured a rat's-nest-haired, smeared-lipsticked, corpse-pale Robert Smith singing about spiders, she would have surely scratched her head. And if I admitted that I thought he was sort of cute...

The Cure "Lullaby"

The guy from The Cure is kinda cute in a maniacal, freaky kinda way...LOL.

I've always liked this song...it was during my tour at MU that I expanded my music library. I guess that is what rooming with a girl from Massachusetts will do for ya...

Oh this is one of my favorite songs from Disintegration. I think I've had at least 10 copies by now.
