Forgotten Classic Video of the Week

This week's forgotten video literally came to me in a dream over the weekend. I dreamed that Roger Daltrey died and I wrote a tribute post to him here on my blog, complete with an mp3 file of his 1985 solo tune, "After the Fire." Upon waking, since it was one of those really normal dreams that seems like it could have actually happened, I thought for a minute that it was true, until I realized otherwise. Still, I thought it was really odd that a song I hadn't thought about in years would find its way into my dreams like that. Hey, Roger! Get outta my dreams, get into my blog!

I don't want the dream to turn into some kind of self-fulfilling prophecy, so I'm posting the video instead of the mp3. (If Roger drops dead tomorrow, I can't take responsibility.) After watching it again, I was reminded of how much I really liked this song. It really sounds like a lost Who tune - which is no surprise, since Pete Townshend wrote it. I'm not sure how I feel about the video. It's like a beefcake photo shoot come to life.

I would like seeing him in my dreams, not for him to die in it though!
Have a safe and merry Christmas!

I'm going to be keeping an eye on the obits, just in case.

Am I mistaken or was this from the Lost Boys Soundtrack?

Not a great song, but one of my hidden '80s favorites. I also liked his title track song on the same album (Under a Raging Moon)--a tribute to the deceased Who drummer!

I dreamed that he asked me what I thought about "Tommy," and I just sat there uncomfortably. Same thing, really.

As long as you don't have dreams of polygonal death I don't care.


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.
