Forgotten Classic Video(s) of the Week

Since I forgot to post a forgotten video last week (oh, the irony), here's something of a two-fer for you all.

The Monkees, "Mary, Mary" (1967)

Run-D.M.C., "Mary, Mary" (1988)

When I was a kid I actually begged my mom to get me the Red version of that Monkees shirt. Wore it to school and was mocked so badly I only wore it that once.

I am still damaged from that...

Nice two-fer this week. I actually played the Run DMC version of "Mary, Mary" on my show this past Friday.

The Monkees don't get enough credit for being rap trailblazers. If anybody doubts me, they should listen to Peter Tork beatboxing on the song "Your Auntie Grizelda".

I would just like to take this space to apologize for all the women I've met named "Mary" to whom I've said, roughly 3,000 times each, "Why you buggin'?"

The Beatles were the JoBros of my generation. Oh how we loved them! Davey Jones was our pin up icon. I would watch them on TV every night before dinner and then the Brady Bunch-reruns, of course (im not THAT old)
Interesting, their song,"I'm a Believer" was how I found out about a certian sex act. Imagine my 12 yr.old surprise when I found out what, "And then she sat on my face....Now I'm a believer." means. Ah, the ingenuity of pre-adolescent boys.

I love The Monkees. I touched Mickey Dolenz once. It was one of the highlights of his life. ;)

Davey Jones. The king of overplaying Maraccas. I mean, look at that...he has 6 of those friggin things! And he plays them even when the song doesnt even have a hint of them....he just keeps manically shaking them!

I actually met him once in a hollywood grayhound bus termimal in 1978. Ahhhh yes....the fall is mighty when your instrument of choice is the friggin maraccas!!!


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.
