The Buzz 80’s Video Of The Week!
This week’s Buzz 80’s Video of the Week is “Roseanna” by Toto!
“Rosanna” was written by Toto’s primary songwriter, David Paich. This song has been widely misunderstood to refer to the band member Steve Porcaro’s defunct relationship with the actress Rosanna Arquette. However, this was actually just a coincidence. The rest of the song had already been finished, and Paich needed a name that fit well into the chorus.The video is set in a stylized urban streetscape, with Rosanna shown as a dancer whose bright red dress contrasts with her grey surroundings. The band plays within a chain-link fence enclosure. Cynthia Rhodes is featured as the lead dancer and Patrick Swayze as one of the male dancers. They would reunite as members of the cast of the 1987 movie Dirty Dancing.–Wikipedia
Kind of interesting-Cynthia Rhodes only made six films in her career, the biggest being “Dirty Dancing”. She married singer/song writer Richard Marx in 1989, and has concentrated on being a stay at home Mom ever since.
