Name That 'Do 3

Okay, geto boy, you figured out Rod Stewart pretty easily. Punk Let's see how you guys do with this 'do. I'll start with one hint: his big hit was in the '80s. "Yes or no" questions are welcome.

Dottie Finalbuger? Oh you will enjoy the Novel, and thank you for your support. Plug in some Tom Waits, always a winner...

SleekPelt said...

josh: Love me some Waits. Good idea.

getto said...

Is he from England?

SleekPelt said...

geto boy: no

Raoul Duke said...

George Michael

spooge said...

i agree w/ duke. there are no golden locks like that of George Michael. you couldn't have picked a more beautiful mane to exhibit.

SleekPelt said...

Raoul and spooge: No, geto boy already guessed that. This one is trickier than you guys think. You might need to ask some questions to get it. Start by paying more attention to my initial clue: George Michael had loads of hits.

Raoul Duke said...

is it candy pop 80's music?

Clash said...

Don Imus?



Sorry. Could not help myself.

SleekPelt said...

Raoul: That's probably an accurate description of his well-known ballad.

Clash: Not sure if Imus had a big hit in the '80s, but if he did, I doubt anyone will play it now!

Zee said...

Did the lone 80s hit have a historical theme?

Raoul Duke said...

SleekPelt said...

The Dalai Mama said...

Raoul, thanks for the reminder. I sure did love Rick Astley back in junior high!

Raoul Duke said...

is the song about a woman?

Mom! Toilets blogged! said...

Is it Roscoe? It does not look like Roscoes crew cut but you could have photo shopped it.

Don Johnson sang back up on a Greg Allman album, Josh will know all the facts, he is a Don Johnson expert.

When do I get my prize?

Mom

Raoul Duke said...

SleekPelt said...

Raoul: Yes, it's most definitely about a woman, and you can tell by the song title. No, it's not Corey Hart.

Raoul Duke said...

Raoul Duke said...

Rob Zero said...

Patrick "She's Like the Wind" Swayze?

SleekPelt said...

spooge, zee, josh: No

Raoul: Yes! The star! Warmer, warmer ...

SleekPelt said...

Rob: Once again you've solved the riddle. It is indeed Patrick Swayze. You're two for two on tough ones, man.

Here's a stroll down memory lane for some of the most dynamic lyrics to ever grace a song:

She's Like the Wind

She's like the wind through my tree
She rides the night next to me
She leads me through moonlight
Only to burn me with the sun
She's taken my heart
But she doesn't know what she's done

Feel her breath on my face
Her body close to me
Can't look in her eyes
She's out of my league
Just a fool to believe
I have anything she needs
She's like the wind

[SOLO]

I look in the mirror and all I see
Is a young old man with only a dream
Am I just fooling myself
That she'll stop the pain
Living without her
I'd go insane

Feel her breath on my face
Her body close to me
Can't look in her eyes
She's out of my league
Just a fool to believe
I have anything she needs
She's like the wind

Feel your breath on my face
Your body close to me
Can't look in your eyes
You're out of my league
Just a fool to believe
(Just a fool to believe)
She's like the wind
(Just a fool to believe)
Just a fool to believe
(She's like the wind)
Just a fool to believe
(Just a fool to believe)
She's like the wind
(Just a fool to believe)
Just a fool to believe
She's like the wind

(Just a fool...)
(She's like the wind)
(She's like the wind)
(Just a fool...)
(She's like the wind)
(Just a fool...)

neil diamond?

jazz singer

spooge said...

did he sing that song? i thought christopher cross sang that song.

oh. those golden locks. makes me melt.

SleekPelt said...

Yep, that was all Patrick Swayze. That's the thing about that dude -- one minute he's singing spoogey ballads and doing this and the next minute he's bouncing at road houses and tearing dude's throats out. That's versatility!

Rob Zero said...

It's either his way or the highway.

Road House is the greatest American comedy of the 80s.

SleekPelt said...

"You're too stupid to have a good time."

Zee said...

Roadhouse. Man, my college roomate (David "Balls" Bolten) LOVED that movie. Loved it.

"It was tails."

Let the comments/jibes/questions about my college roomates nickname commence.

SleekPelt said...

Zee, did you watch the YouTube link I posted just above? Can you tell what the "enemy" was trying to do to Patrick Swayze before our tender hero had to go and twist his leg all up? I mean, what kind of attack was that?

I don't remember "Balls." Was that on Falling Run Road? Did he do ball tricks or something (the Flying Squirrel, etc.)?
