A Hunka Hunka Burnin' Love 2

Many of you may walk away from today's blog post saying, "She is SUCH a cheese ball" ... and that's OK. I'm prepared for this backlash. But I don't think it's proper to write a Rockabilly themed blog each and every day without giving you a little background as to why I love this style so.

Let's take it back to the roots. As a child I had a HUGE onscreen crush on Johnny Depp in the film, Cry-Baby.

Yes ... take a moment and laugh if you must.

But I have to say, I STILL have a crush on this fictional character. And probably always will.

I mean, take a look at this guy! He's so darn adorable it makes me want to cry, and drink my own bottled tears, naturally. ;)

He had great hair, a black leather jacket, was in a Rockabilly band, rode a motorcycle, went to prison ...

Oh, and he hung out with Traci Lords, for pete's sake.
What more can you ask for!?!?

I was 8 when this movie came out, so yes ... it made quite the impression on me. And yes, it is a musical, per se, so if you can't handle watching the whole thing, here is a nifty little recap that should tickle your fancy. ;)

I'll also throw in "Please Mr. Jailer" ... one of the best songs of all time as far as my 8 year old self was concerned. Make sure to look out for Johnny's "grrrrrr." So hot. ;)


  1. Not a cheseball at all. This movie is one of my faves! And such an inspiration for my style of dressing too. Glad to know I'm not the only one. Kitty! :)

  2. Nothing wrong with this have a huge crush on Johnny depp as well.Every time I watch this movie I still melt.His growls when he sings i have to be picked off the

  3. I love Cry Baby Walker and always will!! Johnny Depp is a babe already, but put him in a leather jacket, cuffed jeans and give him and quiff and he is on another level!

  4. Emily Wallace and I shared a love for him in this movie at a young age as well.
