Rock Me… Tonight?

Do you ever start a blog post with nothing to write about?  Just open the page and start typing with hopes at some point, somehow you’ll discover a topic worth writing about?  Yep, that’s me right now.

I could write about what I have been up to lately, but i’ve been so busy with work that there hasn’t been time for much else.  The most interesting thing I’ve done lately is buy new shoes.  Thrilling huh?

I could write about a funny story from my past… I do have lots of those stories, having shared a number of them here.  But I haven’t been in a real “looking back” kind of mood lately.  Maybe I’m getting old.

None of those things really interest me right now.  But I do have an idea, one I’ve considered for awhile…  posting really bad music videos – particularly the ones made for good songs.  You’ve seen videos like these – usually from the 80′s.  Songs that are not terrible and sometimes even decent.  But the videos made for them are absolute horse shit.  Embarrassing for the artists at best, painful for us to watch at their worst.

Since there are an enormous amount of bad music videos, there may be more of these to come.  For now… “enjoy” Billy Squier’s Rock Me Tonite.


This could be among the worst music videos of all time in any era.  I think I read somewhere how embarrassed Billy is about this – God knows I sure would be.

Which do you think is worse… the drawstring white cotton pants or the Pat Benatar wanna-be torn sleeveless shirt?  It’s funny how he tears the shirt off (at the 1:31 mark) then immediately puts on a different, only slightly less ugly shirt.

Yes, that’s his spelling for “tonight”, not mine.  And how about his exaggerated finger snapping and bizarre crawling around on the floor thing.  This video has it all!  He seems a bit effeminate here, but he is a straight guy, loving the ladies.  Or at least he claims to be.

To be honest, the song is sort of a guilty pleasure for me – I’ve always liked it.  Try watching with your eyes closed…

I’ll wait…

….  It’s better that way isn’t it?
