A Brief List Of The Things That Entered My Brain While Watching Robyn's "Call Your Girlfriend" Video
• "Dancing On My Own" (duh) •Flashdance
• The horrifying possibility of a high-fashion reinvention of Buttafuoco pants... for chicks • "Speed" from The Apple (because of the alignment of the spotlights shining on her from the walls) • Having a cake with a Robyn cake-topper • Or a music box that tinkled out this song while Robyn spun the way she does at the end of the video • The realization that if I was the titular "your girlfriend" I probably would not enjoy this song as much as I do • A high-school gym • Dancing by myself at high school dances, losing myself in the music just enough to make up a bunch of steps that caused me to have a fantasy that I was in a video pretty much like this one
