how will i know
whitney houston – 1985
let’s ignore for a second that fact that whitney houston was utterly amazing, and i’m really sad she’s gone, but focus on how back then it really didn’t take very much to impress us. splash some paint on the walls, get a handful of dudes and chicks in leotards and stockings dancing around with the most basic dance moves (we all watch so you think you can dance, we know what complicated shit is) and whitney in a giant bow – you’ve got yourself one classy music video. but whitney never really needed the bells and whistles because she was just so. damn. talented.
let’s go back to those low expectations, that way we’ll always be surprised.
