Happy Birthday, Jane Child! “I Don’t Wanna Fall In Love” VIDEO

Sing it, Sister!

You know what? Don’t even try to lie. You are either full-on dancing or wiggling on your couch right now. (I’m doing a combination of the two, FYI…like what y’all do in the car at the red light.)

Jane Child is 45 today. This fantastic single and video debuted on MTV in 1989. I had a newborn baby boy, who’s now 22 and another boy in kindergarten, who’s 27 years old. That 27 year old absorbed this song into his smart little head and as an adult scoured all the used cd shops in Seattle to find all of Jane’s cds. In fact, we found one while we were having a “Mama and Boy Day” right before we saw Incubus at the Paramount Theatre that night. It’s also Brandon Boyd’s birthday today–he’s 36??   (Holy Lord. We are gettin’ OLD up in here.)

So, yes.  It’ll probably be a two-fer today on the Birthday Roll-Call!
