Let's just let that soak in a minute.
First off, Kenny Loggins. I lived the entire decade of the 1980's in the single digits, so needless to say, I was on the younger side of the population pool last night.
Second, my pop culture intelligence was somewhat limited during that time and I only knew of Bon Jovi from the posters my gorgeous cousin Sherry had on her ceiling.
And on top of that, I was home schooled during that decade, which meant I wore more denim jumpers than leg warmers. And that just makes me sad.
However, I wasn't totally in the dark because out of that decade came some of the most iconic movies of my lifetime. And a lot of that has to do with the musical genius and cinematic treasure that is Kenny Loggins. Without him, Top Gun, The Karate Kid, Footloose and Caddy Shack would have been completely lame.
I mean, can you imagine Footloose without "Footloose?" Nope. Not at all. Kevin Bacon would have all these pent-up dance moves without it. And there is nothing I love more than Kevin Bacon dancing. Nothing.
So, in honor of the fantastic evening I had last night, and because it is Monday in the middle of July and we all need a reason to dance, I give you this video.
A couple things I love:
1. Kevin Bacon and his bow tie
2. The shoes
3. The copious amounts of glitter
4. Willard's tux
5. Kevin Bacon and his bow tie
