She's looks like she's doing fine for being 63 today (so 62 in this shot).

Yes, and it has the same lyrical structure as 1999.


...and the synth intro to 1999 is very similar to the harmony from "Monday Monday" by The Mamas and the Papas, so I remember some music critics referring to the three songs as the "Monday Trilogy."

"I watch you when you are sleeping,

Look, I'd nail Susanna Hoffs just as much as the next straight guy or gay gal but I'd be worried about falling asleep next to somebody who sings those lyrics. I don't have the biggest dick in the world but I'd certainly like to keep it attached to me.

These two where part of a 60's-esque band called Ming Tea in the early 90's.  Band members had alter ego's, she was Gillian Shagwell and he was Sid Belvedere.  The band was fronted by Mike Myers which is where the Austin Powers character originated.
