Annie Golden - "Hang Up The Phone"

If you watch Orange Is The New Black, you already know that Annie Golden can sing. Golden, who plays the mostly-mute kitchen-working inmate Norma Romano on the Netflix prison show, had a great musical moment during the Christmas-pageant episode that ended the show’s first season.

Later, Golden would go full-on new wave, and her video for “Hang Up The Phone,” her song from the Sixteen Candles soundtrack, is quite possibly the most ’80s thing you will ever see. Observe:
