The ’80s live!
At least in Selinsgrove, PA, according to this music video. And who does it star? Thirteen-year-old Isabel Lysiak, sister of our favorite pint-sized publishing magnate, Hilde Lysiak, the fryrdahhfz
girl condemned as too cute to cover a murder in her town.
Here’s the video and below is Hilde’s exclusive story about it.
This comes straight from the Orange Street News:
EXCLUSIVE: Music Video â€œDream of the 80â€™s is Alive in Selinsgroveâ€ Debuts
By Hilde Kate Lysiak
A new music video claims that the town of Selinsgrove is stuck in the 80â€™s â€” in a good way!
Thirteen year old singer/songwriterÂ Isabel LysiakÂ told the OSN she was inspired to write â€œThe Dream of the 80â€™s is Alive in Selinsgrove,â€ after watching her six-year old sister Georgie playing in the neighborhood.
â€œI grew up hearing about how kids had more freedom in the 80â€™s. My little sister just turned six and she is out running around the neighborhood all day. It is like she is living in an eighties movie. Itâ€™s great. Growing up in Brooklyn I wasnâ€™t allowed to do that,â€ Lysiak told the OSN.

Lysiak says the song is a parody of a video called â€œDream of the 90â€™s is Alive in Portandâ€ that she saw on the comedy show Portlandia.
