Vanity 6 - 'Nasty Girl' (1982)
I'd never heard this track until Inaya Day released a dancy version of it in 2004. I loved that version....until I heard the original that is. I was told back then that the band was created by Pop God, Prince. He chose his then girlfriend Susan Moonsie and 2 others to be in the group. It amused me that the '6' in the title stands for the amount of boobs in the group! Very saucy indeed! I love the classic 80's synth sounds thrown in every now and again, and with the naughty lyrics it was an early vision of 'Girl Power'!

As a flight dispatcher at Heathrow, I am expected to liaise with flight crews and give them the paperwork they need after meeting the flight. On a particular day a few years ago, I was on a KLM flight, and I even remember the captains name, 'Captain Doktor' which obviously made me laugh. After returning to the flight during the turnaround, I wanted to see if the crew were ready for boarding, and I heard loud music from the end of the jet bridge. As I approached I could tell it was Vanity 6's Nasty Girl! Captain Doktor was playing his ipod over the PA system and seriously loud too. KLM crews have a good reputation for being fun and laid back but this was totally new to me! The purser who was a very camp young man was making the other crew members laugh by doing some serious 80's dancing, much like the 'nasty' dancing in the music video. A little embarrassed and still trying to maintain my professionalism I just smiled, until he grabbed me and attempted to tango with me! I dropped my radio and my clip board so paperwork went all over the galley. Still it was all good, the music put everyone in a good mood and they were happy to board 10 minutes early...result!
