Princess Stephanie Of Monaco- Ouragan (Hurricane)

Yesterday it was impossible to escape Neil Young's Like A Hurricane on most radio stations. I love Neil, of course, but a point was made when the CD ended up with a scratch on WFUV.  This song,Ouragan (=Hurricane), by Princess Stephanie of Monaco (1986) is not nearly as tasteful but guaranteed to make us laugh (and lost in 80s fashion).

Stay safe!


  1. gawd, she looks like my ex husband when I first met him...quite a blast from the past. Thanks for the lighter note

  2. Great post although I can't help but think how masculine she looks. Still the song wasn't that bad, more power to her :)

  3. Love it. I'd completely forgotten about her singing career.

  4. hahahaha Gaia, how do you find this stuff? Oh poor people who missed being a teenager in the 80's!

    With all seriousness, Stay SAFE, you! I live on the Gulf and these things seem to typically tease us -this path is most unusual. Take no chances.

    Thanks for being you and doing what you do, mate! Your blog is priceless - nobody like you :)

    **Peace & Safety**

    Zanne :)

  5. Bless her heart, she looks like David Cassidy!

    xo A

  6. Hilarious, that video was just some crazy pastiche of 80's music videos! Nice dig at the end about how butch she looks..

    As a side note listening to this reminded me that I got a text from my Mum earlier this week going on about the 'rages'. It took me days to work out she was going on about the wind. Franglais at it's best. Keep safe.

  7. Am I the only one who has always thought that she looks rather like a pre-operative transsexual? The 80's seems so far away when I see things like this, and then I remember "oh yeah, they were 30 years ago now" and feel old... lol

  8. I just had an epiphany (never before had I combined the two, maybe because I was so keenly aware of their presence and differences in the day): she looks just like Morten Harket from A-Ha there!!

    Exhibit A:

    Exhibit B:

    And who can forget those bikinis with the bottom-half "cut" up to the armpits!! (leotards were just the same, prompting Pamela Anderson and the Baywatch team later on to "copy") Plus those Brooke Shields eyebrows gone too far! Ah, the 80s... :-D
