Yaz: music or medicine?

This is horrible. I love '80's music too much. Particularly angst ridden techo.

Midnight it's raining outside he must be soakin' wet

And not because it is some hip retro funny thing to listen to at clubs. Like, oh, 70's music.

Everyone is sleeping tight, God knows I tried my best

No, because I actually remember when the songs came out, on radio, and we bought the records (funny vinyl things) that we flipped over when we wanted to listen to the other 5 songs on the second side.

Darling you know, it looks bad, just I lost the best thing that I ever had...

So much to my horror, I found in this month's Jane magazine an ad for Yaz. I thought it was about Yaz, as in Yazoo, the British band with singer Allison Moyet and keyboardist extraordinaire Vince Clark (now with Erasure).

No, it is a birth control pill.

What's next - a condom named Depeche Mode? A diaphragm called Spandau Ballet?

Dear Denying Mom--It kind of gives new meaning to "I keep on whispering your name..."

Bald guy,

You could really do some damage with old songs or names. Any suggestions?

speaking of Yaz, i hate the commericial where they are in a bar and doing the usual prescription drug lines like they are chatting. as if anyone actually says "Drospirenone may raise potassium levels in your blood" and then takes another sip of their mixed drink.
ok, maybe some people. like doctors. but not scanitily dressed women at a bar!

Jenn - watch out, you'll be amazed the crazy things people will talk about. Especially over drinks...

Ambassador - you and your man need to start reading more women's fashion magazine. You two would have a field day (and you couldn't resist with Thompson Twins).

Now I challenge folks to come up with corresponding jingles!
