Forgotten Classic Video of the Week

Like last week, this week's vid was inspired by an older gem I heard over Memorial Day weekend on SIRIUS, which was installed in my rental car. But unlike last week, I hadn't forgotten this one at all—in fact, I've always quite liked it and think it's a shame that it's often overlooked in favor of some of David Lee Roth's other, bouncier hits like "Yankee Rose," "Just Like Paradise," and "A Lil' Ain't Enough." Y'all look like you could use some "Sensible Shoes." Enjoy.

Good song, but I do prefer DLR's other rockier songs.

I saw him play in Dublin a few years ago and he is great showman. Very funny guy too.

Oh, you know...

One of his better songs and it got almost no play on the radio here, and it certainly had virtually zero play on MTV.

Actually, my feet are KILLING me.

You're good. REAL good.

Sorry, can't watch. David Lee Roth makes me want to gouge my eyes out with a rusty spoon. You wouldn't want that on your conscience, would you?

DLR had that guy Michaelangelo playing guitar for him with the guitar withe the necks that went in opposite directions, and I think the guitar part was a heart. He played in a band called Nitro. Do a search for Machine Gun Eddy for the best/worst/funniest/longest metal scream of all time. You'll laugh your ass off.

 

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.
