Music Video of the Week: 11/24/10

Today’s selection is a clue to where I am this week, “Mickey” by Toni Basil:


“Mickey” was one of the most popular early MTV videos. In the video, Basil wore her head cheerleader uniform from Las Vegas High School from which she graduated. During an interview on VH1’s “100 Greatest Songs of The 80’s”, Basil revealed that she still owns the same cheerleader sweater she wore in the video. The song reached #1 for one week. In 2003, VH1 ranked “Mickey” Number 6 on its list of the 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders of the ’80s.
