What Ever Happened To Billy Ocean?

Seriously, where is Billy Ocean these days? You remember Billy Ocean from his 80s hits such as Caribbean Queen; When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Get Going; Suddenly; and especially Get Out of My Dreams (Get Into My Car).

I love the fact that in the video Billy Ocean picks up a random woman who works at the car wash while all of her coworkers encourage her to go with a stranger who yells at her to get into his car. Meanwhile, cartoon ducks are also a big hit in music videos.

Anyway, while I'm sure that I could probably find out what Billy Ocean is up to these days by reading through his website, I feel like it is much more fun asking all of you.

This video was not available on YouTube, so I had to embed it from LiveVideo. Are you finding that it plays automatically? If so, please let me know, and I'll delete the video since you may not want to hear Billy Ocean whenever you visit my blog.

Update: I've removed the video of my blog. As much as I love Get Out of My Dreams, I don't need it playing everytime I visit this site. Feel free to click on the link above to enjoy the song whenever you want!

Ha ha ha - yes, it is playing automatically - I didn't see this post at first and was wondering why the hell Get into my Car was playing while I was reading about a Lou Bega Halloween.

Christine - I deleted the video until Billy Ocean allows me to use Get Out of My Dreams as the official song of this blog.
