Post a picture, video, or whatever of the celebrity you most tumbled for in the 80s---along with your feeble justifications, of course. ;) Or, since it's come to our attention that there are, in fact, persons roaming the planet who weren't of crushing age during the 80s, which 80s star most makes you tumble now? Jon Bon Jovi, perhaps? Christie Brinkly? Or were you more the ambiguous Boy George type?
I'll Tumble for You
I tend not to fall for celebrities and have crushes. Not even in the 80's when I was a bit younger than I am now. But there were a few that were my favorites and I'd sometimes think about them for more than a second or so.
Irene Cara-- I really liked her in the movie
FAME. The song that she sang in FLASH DANCE is so upbeat.
Olivia Newton John -- She always seemed so pure and wholesome. I liked her in GREASE and other movies that she was in. I also liked her music.
Amy Grant--She was pretty young then and she probably looks the best of my choices now.
Jane Fonda (Image via RottenTomatoes.com)Jane Fonda-- My wife and sister used to work out to her exercise tapes while I looked at the picture of Jane on the cassette cover. From what I've seen of her lately, she still looks pretty good.
Luba Kowalchyk--She was a singer from Canada. She was a rocker who I used to listen to a lot.
Lisa Dalbello--Another singer from Canada who could really rock excellently. She was very attractive and her music was cutting edge. If you watch any of her YouTube videos I think you'll see what I'm saying. Check out "Gonna Get Close to You"--man, that's 80's.
But I suppose if I would have had a celebrity crush at that time it would have been Pat Benatar. I guess I had a thing for rocker girls. "Love Is A Battlefield" is a video that I still like to watch. There's just something about Pat Benatar that I liked.
