Jem from Jem and the Holograms
I was browsing some youtube clips the other day and I came across a compilation of 80s cartoon theme songs. Amidst all of the awesomely cheesy power rock, a true diamond in the rough stood out: Jem and the Holograms. I was of cartoon watching age in the 80s but this my first time actually seeing or hearing anything from it. I don't know what it is, but this song has been stuck in my head all week and I've been playing it over and over. I've always liked a good pop tune and this one is actually pretty decent 80s material. I also get a kick out of how much they say "Jem" during the song (15 times
in a song that only lasts about 42 seconds, that's more than 1 utterance every 3 seconds), how awesome the writers think the word outrageous
is and how there seems to be a band dedicated solely to being bitter haters of Jem.
Like I said, I missed out on this cartoon but I'd be interested to know if anyone here watched it when it was airing on television or had any memories about the toys or the popularity of it.
I've only seen part of one episode but in terms of anime, it reminds of Chance Pop Session
with way more insert songs and a magic computer woman that made hologram clothes.
