From the Department of Nostalgia

I heard this song on the radio for the first time in forever.  Naturally, I thought of the video, which was first released in 1991 when I was 16.  Needless to say, it had a powerful impact on my hormone addled teenage mind.  Ah those innocent days before Internet porn.

I’m curious, does the presence of a shirtless Chris Isaac balance a topless Helena Christensen?  or do the guys win out big-time with this video?  I know what my answer is but I also remember Chris Isaac being quite popular with the girls back in the day.

While we’re on the topic of nostalgia, I found this video the other day.  When it was first released (and subsequently banned) in 1992, I couldn’t get over the fact that Sophie B Hawkins was writhing on a bed.  Now, I cant get over the fact that she’s apparently wearing an adult diaper.

Maybe it’s the fact that I’ve changed a lot of diapers since this song was first released, maybe it’s how much standards have changed.  Whatever it is, “Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover” hasn’t aged nearly as well as “Wicked Game”



  1. Ah, those were the days…
    The problem with Isaac, as I remember, is that his songs were way, way slower than my hormones. Kind of puts you out of step when you’re 15.
