Anyone else remember this song? I love the very Georgia O'Keefe-esque flower imagery, O'Connor's leather jacketed, baldheaded androgyny (though she looks really quite femme in the face— gorgeous, actually), and MC Lyte's tough-girl 1980's aesthetic with the asymmetric haircut and doorknocker earrings.
This song is emblematic of my identity during my teenage years— I loved hip hop, I loved new wave, I loved MTV, but I didn't really own any particular scene. I was all over the place, kind of how I am now, I guess!
I could have also entitled this post, "So, who else is old?"
