SHANNON!!!!!!!

There are some international treasures who go unnoticed as HSOTD by me, because I figure that they’ve already been HSOTD. Shannon is one of those international treasures. My mom has been out of town for a few weeks, so my dog and I are housesitting and taking care of her cats. So, last night as I was sipping on some pink wine in between preparing their dinner, Shannon’s “Give Me Tonight” played on my iTunes and my body couldn’t help but dropping it low. (Side note: If you’re ever feeling like a loser on a Saturday night, just picture me getting drunk on pink wine while dancing around my mom’s cats in her kitchen by myself, and you’ll instantly feel better about your social life.)

I checked to see if Shannon was ever HSOTD. I checked, double checked and triple checked and she hasn’t been. Debbie Deb, Denise Lopez, Nancy Martinez, Sa-Fire,  Corina,  Johnny O and many other freestyle artistes have been HSOTD, but never Shannon. I haven’t been inside of a church in a million years, but I’m about to visit one today to ask the Lord above to forgive me for never making a shining jewel of music HSOTD.

Wikipedia says that Shannon is sometimes called the International Queen of Freestyle, and it’s all because she gave the world two of the biggest freestyle hits of the early 80s. “Let The Music Play” came out in 1983 and was #1 on the dance charts in the US and #8 on the Billboard Hot 100. My cousins let this song play well into the late 80s, and there wasn’t a family party where it wasn’t played on a Boombox. I’m surprised their cassette single of “Let The Music Play” never warped from them playing it so much. But then again, they probably kept back-up cassettes in their purses. The video features Shannon bringing the moves and the glamour in front of a chorus of cater waiters on downers who move like low-powered robot mimes:

“Give Me Tonight” came out a year later and it wasn’t as big of a hit as “Let The Music Play,” but it’s my favorite Shannon song, and the video is a magical wonderland of 80s drama. It’s the modern dance student baby of the Thriller music video and Legend. There’s also a dash of Rebbie Jackson’s “Centipede” in there.

Shannon had other small hits and her last album came out in 2006. She still performs at some freestyle festivals, but I’m hoping that she spends most of her days lounging on her throne as the International Queen of Freestyle!
