7th Heaven - Hot Fun

Because it's high summer all of a sudden and this reminds me of school holidays of yore and more innocent times in general, when members of the public weren't used to living their whole lives on camera. If they made this video today it'd just be to a backdrop of distracted faces and mobile phones held aloft. *sigh*

First person to correctly identify the UK seaside resort featured in this vid wins an improvised lolly-stuck-in-a-stick-of-rock microphone by the way. Except they don't, obviously. What do you think we are, made of money?



Tragically (well, slightly disappointingly), Hot Fun stalled at #47 in the Gallup charts, a fate possibly influenced by the fact that it didn't enter the top 75 until the week of 14th September 1985 i.e. just as the summer had ended. By the cringe the record company (Mercury) were slow out of the blocks with this one!

I am reckoning that due to the 'pleasure' area and attractive (nuclear) power station in the background, it must be Blackpool.

Though the golden sunlight in which everything is bathed seems to suggest otherwise.

Can we play Smiley Miley's Guess The Mileage Game next?

Blackpool sounds like a likely contender to me. I must admit I didn't actually know the answer meself when I posited the question!

The Mileage Game is coming up later but first it's Bits & Pieces with the Hairy Cornflake.

Quack quack oops.

7 minutes of slightly hissy extended Fun.
