A Question of Fashion

short shorts

They’re a summer fashion staple!  Short shorts became popular in the 1950s when they were considered scandalous.  That sense of outrage is no doubt what lead to the writing and recording of today’s addition to the FACS Soundtrack.  Nothing does more to encourage teenagers to act unconventionally than parental outrage, right?

In the 1950s and 1960s short shorts were often cut-off blue jeans.  That style was immortalized by by the TV show The Dukes of Hazard, by the character Daisy Duke.  The style continues to bear her name.

Like it or not, short shorts are here to stay and today’s song celebrates their them in retro style.

Classy suits, don’t you think? So appropriate for the song!

Who wears short shorts
We wear short shorts
They’re such short shorts
We like short shorts
Who wears short shorts
We wear short shorts.

Shortest set of lyrics yet! 

Have a great afternoon!
