GOONIES ‘R Good Enough! (click here to read the entire story)
Anyone remember this movie?….
OF COURSE YOU DO!
Anyone who was around in the 80’s saw this movie…sometimes twice. And even if you weren’t around, I’m sure you caught it on TV the second time around or at least you have seen the shirts at- “Like, oh my gawd…the Mall…and like, totally bought one of those shirts- from like, HOT TOPIC…ya know?…for sure!” ….That’s right….and you know who you are.
SO, anyway… It’s a cool movie. What’s even cooler (and I almost forgot about this, until I was writing the entry below about Cyndi Lauper and the Rock-N-Wrestling Connection) is the video that went along with her song for the Soundtrack of the movie.
It was even used on the cover of the WWF Magazine for the August/September 1985 issue!
Roddy, Cyndi, Nikolai and Sheik
This video was actually made in two parts. The first one was released before the movie was in theaters and the second part was released after the movie’s premiere. Both video’s starrred several of the wrestlers from the WWF and was in heavy rotation on MTV. Cyndi’s mother Catrina was again in this video as was her boyfriend and manager- David Wolff. The wrestlers in this video included: Captain Lou Albano, Andre the Giant, Freddie Blassie, The Iron Sheik, Nikolai Volkoff, Rowdy Roddy Piper, The Fabulous Moolah and Wendi Richter. The kids who starred in “The Goonies” are in it too!
Watch BOTH parts here….

…soon they would be making their own hit video’s as-THE BANGLES!!

If ya haven’t seen the movie, go BUY it! I didn’t want to write too much about it and spoil it for anyone that had never seen it. Those of you who have, need no further reminder of what a classic this film has become. Of course, no Goonies story would be complete with out a brief mention of everyone’s favorite part of the film….
