Momento de Miguel - 1977

Okay, go ahead and say it -- maricón. Even JunkThief was not quite that fey in 1977. But there is still something oddly touching about 21-year-old Miguel showing off his moves fresh from dance school in London. The reactions from the audience are as precious as his dance. The women seem to be holding back laughter, the men look like they are simultaneously appauled and aroused.

They're really sharp, but the choreographer should be shot. What's with the chicken dance in the middle? At least they were together. The only thing worse than lame movement is lame movement done poorly.

¡Pero qué joto te ves Miguel!

Hey, I don't have this song! There must be lots of his cheesy 70s stuff I don't have, except the real good stuff on his greatest hits packages I've run into like Linda, Te Amaré, Te Diré, and one of my absolute favorites of his from that era: Creo En Ti. That's a beautiful song, co-written I believe by another phenomenal Spanish singer/songwriter of that era: José Luis Perales.

Scot is right. A mediocre chicken dance number poorly executed, but then again, that was the 70's and everything was badly made then.

I love the 70's tho. Can we say 'cheesey'? I think I need to watch it again!

Oh, it's beyond cheese, string cheese in fact. I can't help but love the guy though. He's gone through more transformations than Madonna, Joan Crawford and Ralph Nadar combined. And he's still a 10 times better looking than any of those three.
