Forgotten Classic Video of the Week

I really don't feel like digging up something super-obscure this week, and since I've had Bon Jovi on the brain since they were on American Idol, I'll just throw you all one of their lesser-known tracks. This one just happens to be my favorite - "She Don't Know Me," from their 1984 eponymous debut. Yes, the title contains some horrible grammar, but Jon can get away with it because he's hot.

The video doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but it's worth watching just to see Jon strutting around in tight jeans. And look how adorably boyish Richie was back then! He has to hate Jon for aging so imperceptively.

This is one of those videos I know I lived through, but chose to forget. Can you forgive me?

Ah yes, the good old days when the song had absolutely nothing to do with the video. This one had cholos for no reason, right? Cursed dial-up.

I have to say that he could produce such a better version of this song now. Definitely dated but I can see the appeal. B) I'd like to see what he'd do with this live at this time.

I love that man, but it's hard to believe he managed to have 4 kids after wearing those jeans. ;)


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.
