The Weekly Cheese

I was relying a bit too much on posting fun videos for your amusement rather than working for it with my own words. So, I'm not going to do that anymore, at least not on a daily basis. However, a little cheese in one's diet never hurt anyone. I know this one brought a much-needed smile to my face this evening.

This week's daily cheese is brought to us by the Queen of Hip Hop R&B in the 80s...the Dutch Queen of Hip Hop R&B in the 80s, that is. At least, I think she's Dutch. She grew up in Britain, her dad is part Native American, and she lives in the Netherlands. She's basically a human Bennetton commercial. Anyhoo, this is her biggest and cheesiest hit. Subsequent songs and albums were critically acclaimed across the globe, but here in the States we never accepted her for much of anything else but the sassy rapper girl with this song that made little sense. Gigolo sucka, it's...

Neneh Cherry, "Buffalo Stance"

I just saw this on VH-1 Classic, and I wondered when it might pop up on your list. I also like "Manchild" where her head is wrapped up in a beach towel, or the return to bluescreen of "Kisses on the Wind."

Things that make this video rock:
1. The two weird women who look like rejects from the set of "227."
2. The cheesy graphics.
3. The random British accent.
4. The gian, gold "$" around her neck.
5. She's hot.
6. It makes no sense whatsoever.
