Music today provided by the smoooooth soul sound of one Mr. Al B. Sure. The video cracked me up because it totally embodies the late 80's. Ready for the video checklist?

People snapping their fingers and doing that shoulder shake thing-Check
Guy wearing crustache and sporting a mean looking unibrow-Check
Okay, hold up. Even in the 80's that unibrow and crustache thing wasn't cool. You'd think that with the entourage of stylists Al B. Sure had, that somebody would have said, "Oh, no PLUCKING way can we have you looking like that. Somebody bring me some mega tweezers right now!"
No matter, I still liked him and bought his debut on cassette and then bought it again later on CD. That's right, sucka, I did it and I admit it. Hey, I wanted to give the brother a helping hand because electrolysis don't come cheap.

But if you look real close he doesn't have a unibrow. He has a quadrabrow.
