My You Tube Favorites: What?

You know, I made sure to cultivate a "cutting edge" and "state of the art" video selection. After all, it reflected my coolness and it's also what the kids are listening to today. It seems that YouTube's recent technical difficulties turned everything into a madhouse. Imagine my horror when all of my hip-hop and alternative rock favorites were replaced with a bunch of hooey, MOR-ish stuff. I can't stand it! Let's review...


Olivia Newton-John and Cliff Richard- Suddenly

I heard someone had been looking for this particular clip for quite a while, years in fact. When he found it? He had to choke back a sob. Honestly, this is just a nice song, there's nothing wrong with a song like that. In fact, I wish they still made BS, I mean, great stuff like that.




Bottom Line: Classic! And here's another clip.

James Taylor and JD Souther- Her Town Too






I actually like this version much better than the one that showed up on Dad Loves His Work. Taylor's in better voice, better phrasing, in short, less produced. Really I don't know what this video is doing in my favorites, it's a mystery. I'm really going to have to investigate...


Unfiltered:
To be honest, I totally could have lived with his being just James Taylor. I never was a fan of JD Souther as a singer. He's a good writer though--and did some acting, he appeared on "thirtysomething." James looks kind of out of it here. It's great...




Eddie Money-Shakin



It's clear that Eddie Money has some problems. For this? His less than stellar video presence was saved by Apollonia Kotero. As for Eddie, like me he wasn't born no yesterday and he appears here as the world's oldest 33 year old. Frankly, given his countenance and blaring voice, it's hard to fathom that his twenties were just four years earlier. In short, ain't no way...



More Apollonia Praise:
Got to say, she was so Apollonia-esque here, you can certainly see why Patty got the nod for Purple Rain. Wow...


Update:
YouTube sent me a letter and said these are my favorites and that there was no mixed up. That's crazy talk...
