Alright, here's a completely pointless poll to waste your time and brain cells on. I just finished watching one of those VH1 "Top One-Hit Wonders of the 80's" programs, and I was struck by the sheer awfulness of the hairstyles. I mean, I lived through it, but to see it all again, in one place - wow. But I can't decide whose do was the absolute worst, so I've put together my own personal picks for top 5 and I'll see what the mob has to say. And the nominees are...

Limahl - out of Kajagoogoo



Mike Score - out of Flock of Seagulls



Bono - during the mullet days of U2



Mick Hucknall - out of Simply red



Robert Smith - out of the Cure

Limahl for me. Looked like he had a wig made from a skunk pelt. Not good.

A dishonorable mention for Nick Beggs of Kajagoogoo, too. I cannot look at an alpaca without thinking of him.

I wanted to vote them all bar Robert Smith, but I decided to vote Bono, 'cause I just hate mullets with a passion.

You know, bluejayway, I got some stick from my friend for including Robert Smith. She told me his hair is "iconic". I agree - it's part of his look and it totally works with his persona. Doesn't mean it's not bad, though...hair like that, outside of a Tim Burton film, is just not easy to look at! affraid

I voted for Limahl because every chick in my apprentice class wore that style Rolling Eyes

Don't be too hard with the ol' Motley's, I've been a huge 80ies glamrock fan and ADORED those flashy longmainy glamsters which were a lot cooler than the "new romantics" with their softrinsed popsound and their whiny vocals...

Though I am converted to a "short hair and beard is cool" girl I think, Garve looked cutest with his autumnleafred "emo" haircut he had in 2003...


btw...the hairstyle of the flock-chap looks too funny to be ugly and though I think mullets are horrible I don't vote for ol' Bono because he gets enough hard time beeing a do-gooder... Wink And I must admid, I wore a "vokuhila" myself as a twen Embarassed
(in Germany the "mullet" is called "vokuhila" means VOrne KUrz HInten LAng (short on the front, long on the back) What a Face )

I ADORE that video. It is my favorite Elbow video. For..ummm...fairly obvious reason.... drunken
That and Fallen Angel. Is it me or..well...their videos aren't as good now...or, not that they aren't good, they just don't seem to put as much effort into them as before.

Oh, wow...I would've liked to have seen that! Laughing

As for the Crue, I agree with sundaygirl that they did the glam right. I'd let them give me a makeover any day (face only though, not hair!).
