The hypocrisy of Neneh Cherry


Neneh Cherry - Buffalo Stance (1989)

While she's singing "No money man can win my love," she's wearing a necklace with a big-ass money sign. Way to live by your principles, Neneh.

Nonetheless, one of the hottest dance tracks of the '80s, no?

  1. It's $weetness that she's thinkin' of.

  2. Exactly.

    I'd forgotten how pretty she was.

  3. Perhaps the reason no money man can win her love is because she's independently wealthy. You've got to come with something other than cash to interest her.

  4. Good point. She's already got that big-ass, solid-gold dollar sign, what could she want with yet more money?

  5. Who else loves Neneh Cherry and has smart things to say about her (particularly in relation to M.I.A.) is jane dark. (See links: Song #9 and last paragraph respectively.)

  6. Thanks for the links! I can see the M.I.A. connection.

    I believe Neneh is now, or at least was at some point recently, cohosting a cooking show in Britain.
