Forgotten Classic Video of the Week

I was checking out MTV's Video Music Yearbook for some inspiration this week, despite the fact that MTV has nothing to do with music or videos anymore. Luckily, it hasn't forgotten its history.

As I was going through the yearly lists, most of the videos I found weren't in any danger of ever being forgotten. But then I came upon this gem from 1984: "Wonderin'," from Neil Young and The Shocking Pinks' album Everybody's Rockin', a collection of rockabilly originals and covers.

I haven't heard this in about a zillion years, so I was really happy to find it again. Although I didn't pay that much attention to anything that wasn't pretty and British back in those days, I even liked the song as a kid. However, the video, which I find quite amusing now, was not a favorite back then. I guess Neil Young kind of scared the shit out of the 11-year-old me. And I think most of this generation's kids would agree that he really does come off as some kind of Craigslist creeper in this vid.

I like Neil Young. Without him, Crosby Stills and Nash are just three old men.

Neil Young as Craigslist creeper. Hmmm, you may be onto something.

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

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.
