ピンク・レディー

When I lived in Japan as a kid, the group ピンク・レディー (Pink Lady) was hugely popular. I loved them, knew lots of their songs, along with the dance moves! I hadn't heard any of their music in close to 30 years!

Imagine my delight in finding some of their videos on YouTube recently! Now imagine my excitement (and my kids' complete embarrassment) that not only do I still remember all the words, but I still remember the dances as well!

One year, my friend Rene and I were Pink Lady for Halloween, she was Kei, I was Mie, her mom made us the exact outfits in the first video below, although we didn't have those ultra cool boots. I think I still have the outfit somewhere!

Wow...Pink Lady.

They are such a pop-culture icon in Japan from the '70s that even young Japanese kids today know who they are!

That's cool! A lot of people joke that my husband looks like Lionel Richie. Today, I mentioned that he was on the Larry King show, and my 15 year old asked "Who's Lionel Richie? What's he famous for?" How is it possible she doesn't know the Commodores?!?! I've obviously failed as a parent!!!!
