Continuing our recent tradition of running a music video on holiday weekdays, here’s my favorite track from The Presidents of the United States of America. The Drew Carey Show used a much shorter version for most of its episodes during seasons three through seven, but if you haven’t seen the long one, you should enjoy lots of extra bits of business. And more of the song, of course.

Continuing this blog’s tradition of filling in holidays with music videos, it turns out that there aren’t nearly as many Martin Luther King Day songs as there are, say, Christmas songs. Fortunately, there is a good one by the man largely responsible for the holiday, Stevie Wonder. That story is here, and the song is embedded above. Happy birthday!
We continue our new tradition of posting music videos to fill in for holidays and other off days. In this case, Songs of Birdland has taken the bittersweet Auld Lang Syne and made it somehow peaceful and gentle. And very, very long.
Merry Christmas from Free TV Blog. Here’s the latest installment of our new tradition of marking major holidays and days off with YouTube music videos, from my buddy Art Paul Schlosser. Enjoy!
David Lee Roth’s remake of the Just A Gigolo / I Ain’t Got Nobody medley, melded by Louis Prima and earlier covered by The Village People, peaked at #4 on the Billboard charts in September 1985.
But it was this tour de force video that lampooned MTV and so many 80s video staples that got everyone’s attention. There are two nominees for 1985 MTV Video of the Year in this clip: California Girls (seen in the opening framing sequence) and the medley itself. Both lost to Don Henley’s The Boys Of Summer.
When it comes to goofy videos, this is one of my favorites. I’ll sometimes tell someone who’s in on the joke, “You’ve got char-asthma.” And when it comes to videos about videos, this might be the best.
