I agree about the robot dance. I'm a little freaked out by her face when she poses with her hands in the air though (0:30 and again later)..

It's amusing that there is a hit cover of this song from 1987 that is incredibly 80's in an entirely different way: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VnejLmQGYhg

Ha, yeah, such a crazy-stare. She should have a crazy-eyed stare-off with Mad Max Lite.

Yeah, I've got that version on our "Ultimate '80s Playlist" as well. Musically, it's way more up my alley, but that music video has a distinct lack of neon pink, blue, and bouncing tits.

I didn't know that one, it's amazing!

I don't really like that song.  It's too old and isn't it a little bit obscure?  Try reviewing something that people have heard of before!!!

I always thought that other video was weird.  Something just didnt sit right with me.  Thanks for uncovering the truth.

Here is the original video with Cynthia Johnson

Whoa, thanks! I'll have to update the original blog post now. I see most of the video links need to be updated.

I stumbled on this forum,...

The dancer in the Funkytown video is a real singer from the band Doris D and the pins. She had a minor hit in Europe with the song Shine Up https://youtu.be/htjM8vbMfUs

Weirdly popular enough to get a TV special  https://youtu.be/kb9kp5DztEc

Very strange that she ends up lip singing the Funkytown song.

Thanks a lot, fil. Your info led me to a Dutch wikipedia article that filled in some of the blanks. I've now updated this blog post.
