How Do Ya Like It?

Unfortunately, I keep catching TLC's commercial for their new series "Extreme Couponing", a show (inexplicably) featuring a bunch of sweaty unemployed people using coupons to stockpile a bunch of crap they don't need. Give me crazy hoarder any day over that schlock is all I can say about that. My point is, the commercial's hook isn't the subject matter of the show, but rather the catchy tune that plays in the background. Those of us "of a certain age" will recall "More More More" as one of those disco tunes that was kind of pervasively everywhere back in 1976-77(ish).

When you think about it, the song has all the required elements of a great disco tune: a driving beat, smooth brass accents, and a rockin' (piano driven even) bridge. While I would have thought the groovy vocals might have been supplied by someone more well known, it turns out the voice belongs to someone named, "Andrea True Connection". I know--no bells for me either.

I'm in the habit of queueing up songs that are stuck in my head on my iPhone while I shower and make up in the morning. Sometimes I have to play them, like, 600 times before I can get them out of my system (Yah, time for Wapner). I was in for a big surprise, however, when I searched out the "More More More" video on YouTube. Because, friends, "Andrea True Connection" is not your average disco queen. Because Andrea, unbeknownst to myself at the time, took it to a whole 'nother level. I'm talking yellow, fringed granny-panty jumpsuit, some ultra-supportive Leggs hosiery, and what look to be actual cowboy boots. Seriously, it's such a conflagration of fashion WTF's that I had to watch the thing through a full two times to even get my mind around it.

And then, of course, I couldn't get here fast enough to share it with my closest blog buddies.

Trust me when I say, you won't regret this click.

(The hair? The "dance" moves?)

Did you know that Andrea True was also a PORN STAR? True story.

I think Jessica P has that outfit!

Channing, believe it or not I HAVE heard that, and in the most unlikely of places: my conservative Christian academy grade school. I remember a teacher telling us the singer of the song was "so perverted" that she could only do the nasty on camera hence, "get the cameras rolling, get the action going." Another...true story. About Andrea True.
