Sa-Fire!

If it was possible, today’s HSOTD would be the old lady at jury duty yesterday who said, “I’m no good before noon, honey,” to the judge when he asked her if there was any reason why she wouldn’t be able to serve. But since I can’t, today’s HSOTD is the next best thing: Sa-Fire! While driving home from jury duty after getting my ass dismissed, a cover of “I Will Survive” by Sa-Fire (which was on the She-Devil soundtrack) played on my iTunes and it was just what I needed. When I got home, I slipped down into a Sa-Fire k-hole of pure glamour and talent on YouTube and I still haven’t crawled out.

Sa-Fire (born name: Wilma Cosmé) was one of the rulers of the freestyle scene in the 80s and 90s. The Puerto Rican freestyle hummingbird from NYC had several dance hits in the 80s. “Don’t Break My Heart,” “Let Me Be The One” and Boy, I’ve Been Told were all hits on the dance charts and “Boy, I’ve Been Told” hit #48 on the Billboard 100. Her debut album, which came out in 1988, was a hit and some highly-esteemed music journalists (aka my cousins) consider it to be one of the greatest freestyle albums of all-time.

The third single off of Sa-Fire’s first album, “Thinking of You,” was her biggest hit. I sang it out loud so many times that those around me probably sang to themselves, “I’m thiiiiiiiiiinking of beating this brat’s ass if he doesn’t stop singing that song.” Sa-Fire wrote this song for her uncle who died of AIDS. Here’s the video where Sa-Fire kind of looks like a Latina Suki Waterhouse (or should I say, Suki Waterhouse looks like a white Sa-Fire). Get ready to sway like a 7th grader at a junior high school dance:

Throughout the 90s and 2000s, Sa-Fire put out more dance hits and she still performs today. (Click here to see her singing “Thinking of You” at the House of Blues last year while wearing Brit Brit’s Onyx Hotel Tour catsuit and wearing it better.)

It also goes without saying that Sa-Fire’s eyebrow situation was no like no other and could easily eat Cara Delawhatever’s eyebrow situation. And now I leave you with one of Sa-Fire first performances. This has everything you need in a performance: Acid wash denim, teased bangs, hot high school talent show moves, immaculate  lip-synching skills, intrigue and mystery (because you’ll ask yourself, “The fuck is going on?”). Come for the acid wash glamour, stay for the dance break at the 3:47 mark.
