Tina Turner takes to the mean streets of NYC

Yesterday, reader Eric E. sent along the link for Sade's "Is it a Crime" video showing some delicious Times Square pornage lights circa 1985.

This morning, I came across Tina Turner's "What's Love Got to do With it" video shot in NYC in 1984. Love the extras from central casting. And, fyi: Don't fuck with Tina on the streets.

Still, nothing beats Pat Benatar's free-the-exotic-dancers scene in "Love is a Battlefield."

And a little Staten Island from Madonna, who turns 50 today.

Thanks for the cred, Grieve. Just got back from Long Beach, LI, and that, too, is being gentrified (just saw a Five Guys burger opening up in place of a former Korean deli, amongst other/clubs restaurants that used to be mom and pop shops --even Wendy's closed, the one by the train station and is now a Capital One Bank).

Anyway, I feel like celebrating Christmas in August. This is how Christmas in NYC should be, not the masses of tourists and yunnies consuming everything and everyone around them. Merry Christmas!
