Bangles – Walk Like An Egyptian (Extended Remix Version)

There are certain moments in our lives that change us forever… and when I was 6 years old, and I saw the video for The Bangles “Walk Like An Egyptian”… I looked past the song, past the characters walking like egyptian’s, past everything…  ALL I saw was Susanna Hoffs!!

Now remember, I’m 6 years old. It’s very uncool to like girls because they were suppose to have cooties right, all that crap, and here I see this goddess on MTV. All done up, with the big hair, and when she has her solo spot in the song and she looks from side to side (oh yum!)

I didn’t know her name, all I knew was that the girl from the “Walk Like An Egyptian” video was insanely beautiful. I would have done absolutely anything to kiss her, and I was convinced she tasted like sugar!

And let me tell you, this 80′s man sure knows how to call ‘em… because Susanna Hoffs is still decked out today. No joke, super pretty lady.

Susanna, wherever you are… I had the sweetest little crush on you and I’m pretty sure I still do. My number is 555-CHRIS … or you can follow me on Twitter.

Sad to say, she’s married to a movie director named Jay Roach (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0005366/) for over 18 years now…

This is the weirdest timing! I must have heard this song at some point this morning and hit snooze, but whatever happened, when I finally got out of bed I was singing this!

Love the Bangles! When I was in middle school grade we sang this song as part of the 6th grade Halloween play. Clearly, it was lead by the Mummy.

@BatGirl – Wow! Sounds like De Ja Voodoo to me.

@ Peedy1971 – Once again I was born in the wrong time period. Hope she’s happy though.

@Jen – That’s a really cool memory. I love it when things like this cross with recollections from school days. I’ve got a few of those, and oddly enough, one of them has to do with ME playing the Mummy. I’m not even kidding!! Stay tuned for a post about that in the future.
