without a reason why
This is exactly the kind of video this dirge deserves. I could've used more zoom shots on the record, though.
The fact that the lyrics include just that one line of French (which is immediately translated as the same line that has been repeated throughout the song) amuses me. It is like they are saying we want to make sure you know this is a love song so we put some French words in there to prove it.
I still can't get over the fact that someone did four minutes of hand-held camera on nothing but a spinning record.
And here I thought you'd like my video I made for you.
I was going to comment on the "soft focus" on the zoom-in shots, but then I noticed, on the one right at the end, that they weren't focused on the label, but on their reflection of themself, and you can see what they're wearing. Or, not wearing, as the case may be.Yes, that reminded me of the video that Samsmama made for me.
This comment has absolutely nothing to do with your post, but I think you should know that Patrick and I were at a family gathering tonight and a TERRIBLE cover singer/guitarist started playing Mr. Bojangles. We immediately looked at each other and started laughing. You were there in spirit.
Frank, you didn't like the one I made for you either? Granted, an 8 track playing isn't as exciting, but that's the only Kenny Rogers I had. Islands In The Stream, baby! That's our song!
Amy - ha ha!Mr. BojanglesMr. BojanglesMr. BojanglesDie
No way, Samsmama! I luuuurve that video! I keep it on a constant loop in my Betamax.
Betamax. What's the death toll on that one?Cary, this will make sense to noone but you, but one of my first jobs was at a place that offered foot long corndogs. Also? Fried cheese on a stick. It was heaven!
You spin me right 'round, baby, right 'round, like a record, baby, right 'round 'round 'round.
Dead or Alive. I LOVE it!!!
Could have been worse - he could have video taped his tape deck of the song playing.
Yes the video was craptastic, but I truly loved this song back then.mmmm nostalgia....
Of course you did, Hooch. It's a girly song.
In this case it's totally fine to blame Canada. Gee, we sure did churn out some horrid bands!
This guys were great live. Loud as fuck. Great guitars man. Never saw a bad April Wine show and I saw a shitload of 'em.
OMG - this one had been buried so far back in my consciousness that I had completely forgotten it.Thanks for bringing it back to life for me. Really.
I had forgotten this song - thanks Cary. I need dramamine after watching 30 seconds of that video...
I actually had this on 45.Big City Girls on the B side as I recall.
LizC,Boy you're right...I had the same exact experience! TOTALLY buried in my spongy brain, and when I heard it, suddenly I'm back in middle school, trying to get my hair to feather and contemplating how much blue eyeshadow is really too much.
