THROWBACK THURSDAY: Powerline from “A Goofy Movie”
Powerline from “A Goofy Movie” is our first Throwback Thursday feature. Throwback Thursday will be a weekly series reminiscing about one particular artifact in pop culture from back in the day.
Do you remember him? “The biggest rockstar on the planet” in the 90s according to Max Goof? Powerline is to Max as Lady Gaga is to me. His top hits, all two of them– “Stand Out” and “Eye to Eye”– are featured in the movie. As a music icon, his performances were ahead of his time.
One can argue that his artistry is a cross between Michael Jackson and Prince. However his character is inspired by Bobby Brown according to Disney Wiki.
“He even sports a hairstyle resembling Brown’s, although his vocal style is much closer to Jackson’s or Prince’s.”
The pop star character has been underrated in my opinion. However he has recently gained some (well deserved) attention. Stores like Amazon and Hot Topic now sell Powerline merchandise. Which would you choose?
