    I remember listening to this on AM radio in my friend's room after school while we messed with electronics and played board games. At the time, I thought she was saying "She's got better days..." something, something...


    Cool video. Makes almost no sense in places. Very cool indeed. Cesar Zuiderwijk is one of the best drummers in rock music.

    The underworld vibe of the video put me in mind of this:

    Whose Side Are You On
    by Matt Bianco.​





    More Can-Con!

    I've always liked videos that start before the music does, and continue after the song is over (the little bit of missing lyric is "it took some time for my hormones to tell"). From 1990 :

    Her ego wrote cheques incredibly fast
    But her personality didn't have the cash
    She Ain't Pretty
    by the Northern Pikes.​




    And another from the same album. This one's a bit more serious:

    Girl With A Problem
    by the Northern Pikes​



    That one also featured Garth Hudson from The Band on organ (because yes, we really do all know each other up here):

    While posting a reply in another thread, this song popped into my head. The smoking isn't the only thing dated about this video. I still have my Polaroid One-Step camera.

    Growing up in a time with no internet, and with only one full-time music video channel on T.V., it didn't matter what kind of music you were into. Music videos themselves were a novelty, so you watched them regardless of the musical genre.

    Everyone did.

    That's why, the day after I saw this one, everyone at school was talking about it.

    Is it just me, or were music videos more topical back then?

    More Can-Con!


    If A Tree Falls
    by Bruce Cockburn​



    While looking up that one, YouTube's 'related videos' feature reminded me of another Bruce Cockburn song, although the first version I ever heard of it was this cover (Let's hear it for Nerd-Rock):


    Nothing worth having comes without some kind of fight
    You've got to kick at the darkness 'til it bleeds daylight

    Lovers In A Dangerous Time
    by The Barenaked Ladies​

    I don't know if I've posted this one yet:

    Lawyers in Love -- Jackson Browne

    Definitely a musical time capsule.
