Electric Youth

I was sitting at home running through channels on my tv at breakneck speed, when I came across Club MTV reruns on VH1 Classic. I swear, looking at it now, I thought it was an SNL sketch. Did we really wear acid-washed jeans?
Debbie Gibson was on singing 'Electric Youth.' Everyone was doing what moves passed for dancing that year. Debbie had the gayest backup dancers this side of Madonna: Slick hair, white button up shirts, with sleeves rolled up just so, the ever present acid washed jeans. Actually, if they were still dressed like that today, they would be mistaken for lesbians...
