Guess which bloggodfather of yours has that 12-inch single on vinyl, he's proud to say?

I have It's Raining Men, too.

I have It's Raining Men, I Eat Cannibal, and Fishheads, Fishheads.
And I love 'em all.

Oooh! Do you have Der Kommisar (either language) or The Dominatrix Sleeps Tonight? There's a whole bunch of other mid-80's dance music/gay disco on 12-inch in my collection--I was amazed there wasn't a violent matter-antimatter explosion when me and the gf merged our record collections.

I have Der Kommisar in both languages, but not TDST.
My current favorite is Hey St. Peter by Flash In The Pan.

I have to check out that Hey St. Peter song.

By some strange coincidence, the blog I read right before this one had an actual cannibal joke:

Two cannibals are eating a clown. One stops, turns to the other, and asks, "Does this taste funny to you?"

I said actual, not amusing.

(I have the 45 of this song, with a picture sleeve. Rrowrr.)

Alas, I do not have Fisheads (...fisheads, rolye poley fisheads. Fisheads, fisheads! Eat them up...yum). I finally tracked down a copy of The Lexicon of Love on CD (to replace my cassette copy) and it's *still* awesome!

I kinda want to go dancing, now, but I fear I may break a hip.

Here's some trivia on Fishheads that never fails to make me giggle.... It's by Barnes and Barnes, one of whom is little Billy Mumy from the original Lost In Space tv show.
Maybe he saw something out there.

Barnes and Barnes! I knew it was Barnes and somebody...

I just remembered something unusual about It's Raining Men...it was *real* popular in the lesbian bars. I asked my (lesbian) friend about it, and she couldn't say exactly why it was so popular, but she admitted she loved it too.
