Forgotten Classic Video(s) of the Week

Hmm, how can I make up for forgetting to post a video last week? How about a little magic? Yay! Everyone likes magic!

Up first is Pilot with a little 1974-style "Magic."


And next is America with their 1982 hit, "You Can Do Magic." They're talking to YOU, you know.


And now, for my next trick: I guarantee that one or both of these songs will be lodged in your head all damn day! Ta-daaa!

Eff your formatting thingie dude.

Pilot. I have it on my iPod. That's what I was saying.

Thanks for filling my head with VH1 songs.

There is a reason these songs aren't on radio anymore.

It's called sucksassiness.

Damn. Now these songs will be stuck in my head while I'm standing out in the freezing cold in my long underwear watching kids get out of their parents' cars......

I think the Cars 1984 song - Magic would definately fit in with the group of forgotten magic vids.

Those magically appeared to be stuck in my head now... :)

Love the whole lava lamp disco ball effect in the first one! Now that's magic.

Ric Ocasek walked on water in that Cars video. It doesn't shoot down the Pilot song, which probably deserves the top spot on "Magic" earworms, but it's definitely a good eye/earworm.

You know, "You Can Do Magic" was what inspired me to become a professional magician...

Well, alright, I exaggerate *slightly*.

Please make it stop! Please get that Pilot song out of my head!

"Magic" is the best song I've ever had stuck in my head. Thank you for that.

That America song is classic.

 

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.
