Papa Don’t Preach
I’m watching 80s music videos again.
I hate the pro-life teen-pregnancy theme, of Papa Don’t Preach yet I love the song anyway.
The music video was filmed on the North Shore of Staten Island in 1986, and perfectly captures the prole/guido essence of the borough. The actor who plays her dad is perfectly cast as a middle-aged prole Italian guy from Staten Island circa 1986.
However, I miss the 80s hair from Madonna’s earlier videos, and I hate the other look she has in the studio scenes where she’s dancing in a slinky black outfit.
