Generation Gap

Have you ever heard of "Milli Vanilli"? Yeah, neither had I :P

One of my drunk friends from the basketball game (I never did get their names so I'll just refer to them as the drunk guys...see my previous post if you have no idea what I'm talking about) made a comment about one of the players looking like Milli Vanilli. He tried to get me to agree with him but I had to confess that I had *no* idea what he was talking about.

Seriously, I've never heard of them. Darrcie was floored as was the guy in front of us. Apparently Milli Vanilli are the original lip syncers. They even had their Grammy taken away because it turned out that the vocals on their album were preformed by anonymous studio musicians. I've only learned this thanks to a link that Darrcie sent me. Read all about Milli Vanilli here: Milli Vanilli and the Scapegoating of the Inauthentic

The guy beside me was incredulous that I've never heard of them. He was like "I'm not THAT much older then you?! (he is 28) How can you not know about them?" Anyways, it was pretty funny to me :)

So, have you heard of Milli Vanilli?

That is way to funny. I know who Milli Vanilli is. Do you remember the time that I said something about Platnium blonde to you and did not know who I was talking about. Well I think you are up to date with the music of the 80's and early 90's. You are not missing out on anything with Milli Vanilli, they were not that great. I am sure you could teach me all about the country scene and who's who's.

Unfortunatly I know who they are too. Except I must have heard of them while I was in the womb or something...because I am not old!!!

Mel said...

Yes I know about them. Guess that make me old...

There are often times that I have the same incredulous reaction from people though because I work wiht a lot of people that are much older than me.

Methinks you are quite the youngin, Heidi. I am glad that you are now informed about Milli Vanilli. Now, do you know about Boy George?

Emmy said...
