The Eighties were an age of big hair, bigger snare drums and massive hits. Meanwhile, the hit-packed soundtracks of pop-savvy flicks like Flashdance and Purple Rain kept pace with the escalating box office grosses of the summer movie season. Peter Gabriel only topped the Hot once, as did his former band Genesis. After a string of disco smashes with Chic and Sister Sledge in the late Seventies, Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards got the call in to do their first work with a real superstar. At the dawn of the Eighties, as artists like Blondie and Gary Numan were scoring Top Ten hits, the thirtysomething Billy Joel was feeling a little alienated by the burgeoning punk and new wave movements.
Hey, our system thinks you're a bot.
By Hardeep Phull. Rick Springfield knows what you used to think of him. He was right. No, but so many scripts were crap, and the dialogue was sucky. From the dope, to the hookers, to being shot at. I almost blew up the band with a grenade.
Jessie's Girl Lyrics
Introducing Jessie's Girls, a new concept in national party band entertainment. We searched high and low for five of the most beautiful girls, with strong vocals and fabulous dance moves. We hired Beyonce's choreographer to work with them and got them in incredible shape so they could do a non-stop show. We hired the costume designer also used by the Black Eyed Peas!
I was in between writing songs and, as I usually do during those times, I wanted to do something with my hands — work with clay, paint, draw. I decided to take a stained glass class in Pasadena, California. There was a girl in the class I really fell for — until I found out that her boyfriend was also in the class. Besides, Jessie is tougher sounding.
