I’ve got this feeling
That times are holding me down
I’ll hit the ceiling
Or else I’ll tear up this town
Who didn’t love Footloose? It was and is one of the quintessential films of the 1980s! A ban on dancing, I love it!
I think a perfect person for today’s Manic Monday and someone who Pinky just met is Ms. Lori Singer!
Such a great movie! Check out Pinky’s Manic Monday below!
Hello, my lovelies. Pinky Lovejoy-Coogan here thinking about one of the originals of our time. Back in 1984 a little film came out about dancing. Or, rather, the lack of dancing in a little town where it was forbidden. That’s right, I’m talking about Footloose.
No, not the one that was released a few years ago, the original Footloose starring Kevin Bacon and Lori Singer. Who can forget the iconic prom scene from the end when Kevin, I mean Ren, yells out, “Let’s dance!”
I remember seeing Lori on both Footloose and the iconic show, Fame, but I haven’t heard much about her since then.
So I was surprised to see her name listed at an event I attended recently. I wasn’t quite sure if I’d recognize her, but I never should have worried. When Lori came out, she looked exactly the same and was as sweet as can be. In fact, when I asked her for a picture, she said, “With me? Why?” The only bummer was that she put her glasses on before the picture – she looked beautiful without them! Oh, well.
It was fun meeting her all the same. I’d been lucky enough to meet a few of her co-stars from the film, Kevin Bacon and Sarah Jessica Parker, at Sundance several years ago, so I was thrilled to get to meet Lori, as well.
