Forgotten Classic Video of the Week

Nope, I still have no home internet access yet. And if I get caught blogging at work, they'll cut off my hand. Really. So just be patient and enjoy the videos that I'm still managing to post every week.

This is "Let My People Go-Go" by The Rainmakers. I haven't thought of this band in a long time, and they just popped into my head now. I remember that when I first saw this video, I thought these guys were kind of weird and annoying. Then my brother got a couple of their records and I ended up really liking them. They were another one of those cool bands that seemed to be respected by a lot of folks, but never really went anywhere. I don't think they're still together, but they have a MySpace page...as everyone does.

And, as a bonus, here's another Rainmakers vid, "Downstream," which is a better song, in my opinion. I always remember the line "God is an Indian giver, I don't trust nothing but the Mississippi River." Technically, if you believe in God, you believe that He made the Mississippi River, so that really makes no sense. But let's not split hairs. It's still a cool line and a groovy song.

I loved The Rainmakers. I had their cassette. Must watch / listen. Thanks.


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
