From the back to the middle and around again

This song is on Sirius right now, and suddenly I am 12 years old again.

How many hours did I spend playing my taped-off-the-radio copy of this song (sidenote: at 1:52, there is a closeup of an audio cassette - awesome.) and dancing around my bedroom, imaging what it would be like to be a grown-up and go to a club and wear glittery eye makeup and leather pants? Too many.

Thank you for the flashback, 90's On 9.

Oh, fuckin yes! I love this song. I also recently saw an episode of King of the Hill when Bobby was in a fashion show and "Gypsy Woman (She's Homeless)" was playing!

You had me at "taped off the radio" ... OMG. Can I just tell you how many tapes (I still have) where I tried to get the whole song but the freakin DJ's would always talk over the beginning and end. It frustrated the shit out of me! So, now when I listen to those old tapes they abruptly start and stop and it's hilarious now of course! Gotta love the 90s!
