All the Old Paintings on the Tombs

Watching the Bangles song ‘Walk Like an Egyptian’ on Youtube took me back to 1986 and the realisation that Susannah Hoffs was probably my first ever crush, and 20 years on, she’s still got it.

The video though? Honestly, it would have been less lame if it was three minutes of them asleep in a dark room. Still, ‘Walk Like An Egyptian’ made it onto a list of songs deemed ‘inappropriate’ by ClearChannel following 9/11, which is kind of bizarre when you think about it.

    Because Egyptians hate freedom. They’re freedom haters. We’re freedom lovers.
