Who's the Boss

Sir Elton John is going to be blessing our fair city with an appearance in the near future. To advertise this glorious occasion, all of the radio stations have been playing clips of his songs, one of which being "Hold me closer tiny dancer". At some point in my life I read or heard somewhere that someone thought the line was actually "Hold me closer Tony Danza", so that's what, for some reason, my brain has chosen to torture me with.

Hold me closer Tony Danza.

All the time.

For three days.

I'm going slightly insane.

You just made me recall my short-lived childhood Tony Danza crush. Ick.

I used to love that show. But have you watched it as an adult? It's like Tony Danza was on happy pills. And Red Bull. And Angela's shoulder pads would have been charged for a second seat on airlines.

I have been singing the same thing since I heard he was coming.

I still love Tony Danza. I'm not ashamed. Well, a little.

On an episode of Friends, Phoebe sang it that way. And now I don't even know the real words, because "Tony Danza" has also stuck in my head permanently.

Every time I hear that song, I relive an episode of WKRP when a Russian man is trying to defect & falls in love with Bailey Quarters.

Wait, did I just show my age? Shutting up.

That's it! Friends. I remember. Thanks Lex.
I loved WKRP. Not the remake thougth. That was crap.
Did anyone else notice that I wrote "Brian" instead of "brain"?
"That's what my brian chose to torture me with. I don't have a brain....nor, some would argue, a brain sometimes.
