Seeing the video for "Sunglasses At Night" started it for me...
Corey Hart had such a smoldering, sexy look that I totally fell for.
As he's from Canada,
I found his slight foreign accent to be especially intriguing.
I followed his career, reaching the peaking point of my crush with his album, "Boy In The Box."
I remember reading an interview in Bop Magazine about how he got his hair so spiky. His answer? Toothpaste. So I gave it a try to be like him. It didn't work on my hair that well, but it did smell minty fresh that day.
My crush on Corey was a secret, but I would tear out the full page pics of him in Bop and 16 magazines, and put them on my bedroom wall. I felt like it wasn't as obvious, since I had Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, and Wham! posters up there in the mix, too.
