Picture it: 1987. I have one idol and her name is DEBBIE GIBSON. Enjoy my fave song of hers, if you will:
The summer this was the it song, I was at Spring House Day Camp in suburban PA. The first time I heard it, I was at this weekend sleepover where we were supposed to play SPIN THE BOTTLE. I was seven at the time, and totally and utterly scared to kiss a boy (wouldn’t you be at seven? This camp was mildly fachachta, to say the least.) I distinctly remember telling my counselor that I wasn’t down with kissing the boys right this MINUTE, but I was so very down with allowing her to swipe me down with some lipstick (which she was applying for all of us, pre-boy kissing.) Even at seven, even at CAMP, I still wanted in on the makeup.
