Bob Marley is the undisputed king of reggae. I am honored to share the same birthday. And I was so very fortunate to see him play @ Pauley Pavilion, @ UCLA, in November 1979. If I had to rate the best concerts I have attended, Bob's would be in my top 3. Almost 30 years later, Bob's music still resonates throughout the world with its powerful messages of love, peace, and equality.
Robert Palmer is one of my favorite artists. I cried when I heard the news he had died. Such a talented and charming artist who died too early. I have a Robert Palmer poster in my office @ work. In fact,I have several posters of various artists in my office. Just like in this video, Robert Palmer looks very dapper in that poster. A well-cut suit will take you far and it sure became Robert Palmer's signature look. Anyway, Robert Palmer epitomized sophistication and polish in all of his videos. And I think he pushed the envelope in this Pepsi commercial. This commercial was very sophisticated and at the time, there wasn't anything like it on television.
I LOVE this video! What can I say about Robert Palmer? Mr. Suave. Mr. Sexy. Mr. GQ. When I saw Maxi Priest's "That Girl" video, it reminded me of "Simply Irresistible". A couple of my buddies have told me that I remind them of the women in this video. I don't think so! One, if that were the case,I wouldn't be working as an administrator. Second,I think I have more going for me than looking like a mannequin.
