How's it going my gumdrops? Aside from a few complainers last Song Saturday, I am really glad that more of you enjoyed all the songs written and co-written by Prince and learned something new.
Here it is 1 year later and I am STILL reeling over the fact, that Prince wrote "Manic Monday," which he eventually gave to The Bangles. After relistening to the lyrics for "Manic Monday," I began to realize that it DOES sound like a Prince song. There is no need to worry. This is NOT another Prince Tribute blog.
Since some complained about my latest Prince Tribute blog last Saturday, they will probably complain again today mostly for the sake of complaining and because this song won't necessarily be from their favorite genre of music.
To ease the minds of some, I will try sharing some new Rock Music, next Saturday.
Speaking of The Bangles, they used to be 1 of my favorite Pop-Rock groups growing up in the 1980's. They are best known for songs such as "Manic Monday" and "Walk Like An Egyptian." Could you imagine if "Walk Like An Egyptian" released today?
Considering how "politically correct" everybody and everything must be in this era of crybabies, people would probably be outraged around social media and have a heart attack over the song being "racist" and "politically incorrect."
I loved "Walk Like An Egyptian" growing up. The music video was in heavy rotation on MTV, during the mid to late '80s. Over 30 years later, the song is still being played on radio stations. The song and music video were so popular, that many people did the Egyptian dance moves. NOBODY COMPLAINED about it either. We had fun.
It's such a shame we can't go back to a time like the '80s. More people learned how to enjoy and appreciate entertainment as oppose to being hypersensitive and wanting to be a political activist, that browbeats everyone with political correctness.
Amazingly, The Bangles' song, "Walk Like An Egyptian" is still very popular today and in Japan. In fact, this song is so popular it was used as the ending theme for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure's 2nd season, Stardust Crusaders.

After discovering that JoJo's Bizarre Adventure used "Walk Like An Egyptian" as the 2nd season's ending theme song, I was shocked. Then again, it makes sense. I've yet to watch Stardust Crusaders given how busy I am both on and offline.
Hopefully after Adult Swim's Toonami block finishes airing Attack On Titan, we will have a chance to watch Stardust Crusaders. I am especially curious to know, if Viz Media gained the rights to use "Walk Like An Egyptian" as the ending theme song in the English Dub of Stardust Crusaders.
Because the 2nd season of this Seinen Supernatural Action Anime takes place in the late 1980's, contains '80s pop-culture music references, and has 9 Egyptian gods as characters, "Walk Like An Egyptian" seems appropriate for the ending theme song.
Even though I have yet to watch the 2nd season of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders, I watched another music reference video about the next set of characters. Tomorrow I will have a preview of the next set of characters for Stardust Crusaders.
Judging by the looks of this next season, it has more characters than Phantom Blood and Battle Tendency. Anyway, here is The Bangles' music video for the song, "Walk Like An Egyptian."
