    Great stuff, no-doubt. But I must admit that, for me, this thread gives rise to some mixed emotions. I like the songs, for sure. But I also kind of feel that segregating them like this into a wholly separate thread is a real disservice to some of the younger people, for whom there's still a lot of relevance to take away from them.

    Speaking of Jackson Browne, how long has it been since any of you have thought of this:

    You're A Friend Of Mine - Clarence Clemons feat Jackson Browne & Daryl Hannah

    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=087mi1e46us[/ame]

    Just so much to just take-in here. The totally unabashed man-on-man love of Jackson Browne & Clemons as they soulfully gaze into each others eyes; literally, singing to each other. Daryl Hannah, proverbial third wheel in this tricycle of co-depency. That camera, wtfis? Probably seemed like an awesome prop at the time, but I find myself pondering at how a future generations might receive this prominent display of so unintentional an anachronism. And, why are these ostensibly famous people, who're basically used-to/trained-at being in front of a camera for a living so apparently excited by this outsized toy from Macy's electronics dept.?

    I think you've struck comedy gold with this video--your description had me laughing. Once I watched it, I did recall hearing the song; but I've never thought of it since then, and I'd never actually seen the video version until today. Clarence Clemons' sax playing is terrific, but as far as the rest of it goes...some things may be best forgotten. :p

    As far as sharing these videos outside of the forties thread, I see your point (although I'm not sure you gave us the best example of musical relevance. :D) However, some of us (OK, me) may be afraid of being perceived like this:

    How kind of you to call the camera a prop.....Daryl Hannah was the prop and needed something to do :p

    Wow. I didn't think I saw that many videos at the time, but so many of these are ringing some pretty big bells for me. Thanks again to Green Eyed Fairy, and to everyone who's contributed to this thread. It's a hoot.


    I was put in mind of this one, from 1990. Watching it now, I'm surprised at how many musical elements come together in this song.





    Shockingly, this was the first time I saw Bootsy Collins, and didn't know he did anything other than appear in this video.

    S-A-F-E-T-Y: Safety Dance!

    It's a guilty pleasure (the video is pure cheese :p), but it's just so darn catchy; and it always gives me the urge to go to a Renaissance fair.

    This song chased my family on a three-day drive to Florida in 1981. Terrible memories, it was on every radio station.
