throw back thursday | color me badd

It was 1991/92; Paul Keating was the Australian Prime Minister. Billy Crystal hosted the Oscars. 1 & 2 cent coins were no longer. Blossom and Full House were on TV. I was first/second year high school, my best friend’s were Gracie, Tam, Lindy, Janine & Lisa. Bryson was my boyfriend. I discovered I had an insane ability to swim fast and my teenage hormones connected me to
Color Me Badd.

I know you want it.

  1. Actually Bryson was my boyfriend but u and Lisa made me break up with him so you could go out with him. I walked home singing my favourite Mariah “love takes time” balling my eyes out. Ah ha ha ha

  2. I don’t know if they aired Beverly Hills 90210 down under–or if it was on, but you were busy stealing your friends’ boyfriends–but I recall this group making an appearance on that show. They had another equally obnoxious hit, I recall. “Dream on / Dream away…” Something like that. I was in my third year of junior college. (One is only supposed to go to j.c. for two years…but I eventually transferred to university!) Anyway, what was up with their eyebrows?

    1. Hahaha!!!
      BH 90210 was on Friday nights – Gracie (the one whos BF I stole…though I claim amnesia on this issue), my Mum & I used to watch it. Mum watched it with us apparently because it was racy & we needed adult supervision as 13 yo’s although I think she just needed a secret reason to watch teen smut!
      I remember they had so many cool (at the time) acts on in the Peach Pit (aaah the memories) but I was too busy hating Kelly to remember…
      The main question is did they start the ‘colour block’ fashion phase?!

      1. I think everyone was on Team Brenda. You know, I think the Color Me Bad episode predated the Peach Pit. I recall the kids sneaking into a hotel to see the band (and they see one of their mothers having an affair there, of course). Anyway, why don’t we folks in the states get any Australian shows? All I can remember is The Paul Hogan show in the early 80s.
