FAV: The Reflex

Aaron and I were coming back from signing our taxes and treating ourselves to doughnuts this morning [very romantic stuff, we even stopped by the library and returned books, SWOON!] when this song came on his XM. I informed him that I thought he needed to put this song on one of his DJ playlists to which he replied "I don't know what this is."

"Just wait for the chorus." I said. The chorus came and went and came and went again. Still didn't ring a bell.

I was shocked. I almost choked on my coconut doughnut. I mean yes, we were only 6 when this song came out [1984] but I do still remember watching this video and wishing someday I'd have a boyfriend with awesome Duran Duran hair. Aaron says he must have been too busy listening to Mousercise at the time.

And in his defense, that was a really good album.

So, how about you - do you remember "The Reflex"?

Now, I DO realize what I am about to say, opinion of Aaron has dropped significantly. He is a walking encyclopedia of the music industry. He owns his own record label. He has recruited, developed, & sold MAJOR talent...and he doesn't remember this song? I am sorely disappointed. All joking aside, I am sure it's becuase his Walkman wasn't working because Alyson had stolen it and hid it. It DEFINATELY needs to be on the hit list.

Of course I know The Reflex. The reflex is an only child - he's waiting in the park. Duh, Aaron. I can't believe you didn't know that. Yes, I realize I'm talking to him through your blog :)
