Here's a Strange 80's Music Video for Your Enjoyment

Posted By on Fri, Jun 7, 2013 at 2:00 PM

It's Friday, so what better way to celebrate than with the music of Montreal-based husband and wife synth-dance act Lime's "Babe We're Gonna Love Tonight"?

A selection from the band's fascinating Wikipedia entry:

Lime was a synthpop group from Montréal, Canada, during the 1980s. The group was composed of husband and wife Denis and Denyse LePage, although two younger and more attractive singers, Joy Dorris and Chris Marsh, were chosen to tour and appear as the act. Later, Rob Hubertz replaced Chris Marsh. Joy Dorris and Rob Hubertz continue to perform today. They are most noted for their songs "Angel Eyes" (1983) and "Your Love" (1981 #1 US Dance). "Your Love" was featured in the 1982 movie Summer Lovers...There were rumors that Denis and Denyse were in fact one person and Denis LePage did both vocals, a deep vocal for Denis and a falsetto type voice for Denyse...Denis LePage continues to release records as the transsexual act Nini Nobless.
