Awesome 80s Video #6: Stevie Nicks, Talk to Me
I am going to go this entire post without making a cocaine reference. I am going to go this entire post without making a cocaine reference.
Stevie Nicks, “Talk to Me” is my favorite of all of her solo songs. It is not as heralded as other hits like "Edge of Seventeen" or "Stand Back," but it is as quintessentially 1980s as just about any female-fronted rock song of the era. Whoa, is there some 1980s-style production on this track. It almost sounds like a sister song/companion to "Voices Carry."
All this, plus a video to match! It's Stevie in her full [comment redacted] days, twirling all over the place and also doing some kind of choreography with some dudes…and it all takes place in one of those 1980s houses with insanely large and empty rooms!
If this isn't 1980s enough for you through the first verse and chorus or so, check out the awesome sax break in the middle.
Why, oh, why has no one tried to go "viral" with a wedding party dance copying the routine in this vid? I am normally against any such contrived effort to do such a thing, but I would make an exception in this case.
