Laura Branigan - Self Control (Official Video) 80's classic

Laura Branigan - Self Control (Official Video)  80's classic

I, I live among the creatures of the night! Ok, Laura Branigan, not only are a weirdo 80's hottie you make some kick ass music and I want to roam the night with your hot young 80's body.  This video is classic 80's music creeper weirdo status (I think Branigan has got some lez in her) .

 I wonder what I would be like to be in college during the 80's and listening to songs like this at parties and clubs. I mean how do you dance to this stuff. I love it but I cant really dance to it, I just start playing air guitar and jumping around. How does that V for Vendetta guy control himself. aha

I found this song and sweet music video over Christmas break when I was asking my mom what kind of music was playing in the clubs when they would go out in their late 20's. Well, my mom was 24 my dad was 28. After numerous stories about Studio 54 and the secrets to beating the line to get in, my mom finally revealed some tunes of the day. Laura Branigan, self control was one of them. Apparently when this song came on everyone rushed to the dance floor and got boogying. I used Spotify to play this for my ma and when it came on she jumped out of her seat and danced her 56 year old legs off. hahah. I knew it was a must for any music blog.

This is a classic song please use it wisely. If you are partying with some friends that cherish the 80's and they are playing all the played out songs by Journey etc bust out this un known classic. 

Here are the lyrics:
"Self Control"

Oh, the night is my world
City light painted girl
In the day nothing matters
It's the night time that flatters
In the night, no control
Through the wall something's breaking
Wearing white as you're walkin'
Down the street of my soul

You take my self, you take my self control
You got me livin' only for the night
Before the morning comes, the story's told
You take my self, you take my self control

Another night, another day goes by
I never stop myself to wonder why
You help me to forget to play my role
You take my self, you take my self control

I, I live among the creatures of the night
I haven't got the will to try and fight
Against a new tomorrow, so I guess I'll just believe it
That tomorrow never comes

A safe night, I'm living in the forest of my dream
I know the night is not as it would seem
I must believe in something, so I'll make myself believe it
That this night will never go

Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

Oh, the night is my world
City light painted girl
In the day nothing matters
It's the night time that flatters

I, I live among the creatures of the night
I haven't got the will to try and fight
Against a new tomorrow, so I guess I'll just believe it
That tomorrow never knows

A safe night, I'm living in the forest of a dream
I know the night is not as it would seem
I must believe in something, so I'll make myself believe it
That this night will never go

Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
You take my self, you take my self control
You take my self, you take my self control
You take my self, you take my self control...
