Today's Music Month Flashback is Asian Paradise by Sharon O'Neill.

Nostalgia can take many forms, and certainly many a middle-aged memory swirls back to this 1980 music video for singer/songwriter O'Neill's hit single of the time.

The video for this classic song about romance in foreign climes opens with O'Neill's back-lit image reflected in the water.

But it is the scenes of her in a rippling pool wearing a shark tooth ear-ring that seem to have left the longest impression on male fans of a certain vintage!
