A Redundant Classic: Melba Moore - Miss Thing


This may be the gayest thing you see all day. Unless you look in a mirror. Ha!

Work it out, Miss Thing!

    1. I'm sure you did the right thing! Are you the one who originally posted this? I'm glad someone saved it!

    2. Oh, but yes - I originally posted it! I have shown this clip in dives from coast to coast - but it never got the love it deserved until now... this whole special was about 30 years ahead of its time!

    3. Where did this come from? Heaven?

  2. Dear god. Rock Hudson, Madam, disco, "Miss Thang," and costumes that look like a losing effort on Project Runway. This isn't the gayest thing today, it's the gayest thing in history. You can practically smell the poppers.

  3. I suppose it's cheaper and easier to pose the Safety Gays than actually to choreograph them, but it does give the number a static quality that Miss Moore can only do so much to offset. Fortunately, she does do that much, aided and abetting by her matching gloves and cocktail hat.

  5. Just to add to the gayness, "Miss Thing" was produced by the half of Donna Summer's production team who wasn't Giorgio Moroder, Pete Bellotte.

    1. "Gay, American Style" should be a new TV show!

    2. Pardon, I'm studying foreign languages, but not English, it isn't for me...
      So if you see that I use stupid words or few synonimes, it's normal!

      I guess you will have a show like this in the (recent) future! ;D

    3. Your English is much better than my Italian!

    4. I don't know how your Italian is, but I guess you didn't studied it 5 years at high school! haha!
      I had an American teacher, but she totally adopted the Italian "Dolce far niente", and that's it! haha

  7. Thom, I don't think we've ever met your Italian... Jx

  8. She puts the cock in cocktail hats! (Sorry, I've always wanted to say that!)

    Thom, I remember, seems like years ago we had a little conversation about "You Stepped into My life". Every time I hear it I think of you!

    1. Aww, you are so sweet! I'm gonna listen to that song right now!

      "You stepped into my life, stepped into my life, stepped into my life!"

    2. Me too! Damn, I can't hit the high notes anymore! So I guess it's harmony for me from now on!
