The Lights Are On, But You’re Not Home

Today was Twin Day for Homecoming Week at my school. There were a handful of us in the English Department who couldn’t decide on what to do… until one of us had a very good idea.

Remember this 1986 classic?

Well, give “Addicted to Love” 26 years and put it in an abandoned band classroom:

Alternate takes, in which everyone looks inexplicably annoyed at Robert Palmer (click to enlarge):

Please pardon the obvious and clunky photo editing in the top picture; I wanted to clear off the stuff that was being stored on top of the cupboards, but I had to use Pixlr… and Pixlr ain’t no Photoshop.

Probably the best part was going across the school during lunchtime, lugging Guitar Hero controllers, and fielding the inevitable questions from the kids. As we passed one group, I heard a student explain that we were “some band from the Fifties.” NINETEEN EIGHTY-SIX, you little twerp! 1986! Sheesh. Band from the Fifties… 🙂

P.S. You’re welcome for getting that song stuck in your head for the rest of the day. 🙂
