Daily Boom 80's Throwback: Pointer Sisters - 'I'm So Excited'


"We shouldn't even think about tomorrow
Sweet memories will last a long, long time
We'll have a good time baby don't you worry
And if we're still playin' around
Boy that's just fine
Let's get excited
We just can't hide it
No, no, no
I'm about to lose control and I think I like it"


I think that the 80's was truly a decade that celebrated girl groups. Think about it- The Bangles, The Go-Go's, Expose, Sweet Sensation, The Cover Girls... the list is endless. Perhaps one of the most popular came in the early part of the decade. I'm talking about The Pointer Sisters, of course. They got there start way back in 1969 and actually were successful COUNTRY artists before switching things up.

By the late 70's the ladies had jumped onto the disco bandwagon. Dance mixes seemed like a much better fit and throughout the mid-80's The Pointer Sisters enjoyed great success. "I'm So Excited" was really a breakout hit for them. It was first released in 1982 and did well, landing at number 30 on Billboard's Hot 100. It was rereleased in 1984 and became a top ten hit with loads of radio and video play. 

"I'm So Excited" seems like a great way to kick off the weekend, so let's do it. Check out the  video below.
