What a gorgeous face!
And what a tasty plank of corny old time country music.
Let’s just do it again.
PS This kind of music used to make me want to eat my own ears so I wouldn’t have to hear it when I was a kid. Now, it’s kind of simple and weirdly appealing. I know, it’s freaking me out.
I’m sorry, but I don’t like Blondie.
Particularly this song.
But I LOVE the pants you start seeing at 1:00 minute in.
If you can stand the dead-eyed stare, the brutal singing voice and the country-style bass line, enjoy those pants and the spastic dance.
This performance is killer.
1. Great song.
2. Great time period captured by the song.
3. Benjamin Orr is completely transfixing. Hypnotic, even. If you had a time machine, and you went back to the 70’s and asked kid me what I wished I could do, look like, be and sound like, I would have pointed at Ben Orr in this clip, although I wouldn’t likely have been comfortable with the half-lidded, boozy or drugged out eyes that he has, no matter how how it may have looked to 70s girls. Wait a minute… 70s girls… Maybe I would have gone for that back then.
4. The keyboardist needs to never dress like that at a show again.
5. Ocasek is creepy, which is cool.
Note: I have not yet gotten tired of this clip. How hot was that debut album? Ridiculous.
Okay, I had to stick this in there too. Killer song, great voice, still amazing.
What the hell? The Cars are incredible. It’s nice to go back to a band from the G.O.D. and find out that they really were great, and maybe I wasn’t such a goof after all.
Man! Now I have to add Candy O. I need to lay down.
