So, Emily the Mom came up with this one and because I'm as big of a music dork as she is, I decided to steal it for my blog too.
I don't miss "Friday Night Videos" because I was never allowed to watch it. But just this week, while I forced my kids to watched tivoed espisodes of "Totally 80's" on Classic VH1", ("That guy's name is David Bowie." "Check out Annie Lennox. Isn't she awesome?" "Leave us alone mom, we're trying to be normal." GAAAHHHHH) I remembered watching VH1 in the mornings before school. I think it was in the middle of a Miami Sound Machine video when suddenly I was taken back to the living room in the house where I grew up and I was eating my breakfast on a tv tray while digging some "Soul Food to Go" by the Manhattan Transfer. Those were the days. My life literally revolved around Casey Kasem's Top 40 on Sunday mornings (if we missed church, I got to hear the whole thing) and watching hours and hours of VH1. As I got older, I was really into watching "120 Minutes" on MTV. Remember that? 2 solid hours of "alternative" music, whatever the heck that meant.
To pick only one Friday Afternoon video is difficult for me. But I'll leave you with this one, since I mentioned it earlier. It's a good one. The overcast, windy, pre-fall day calls for some really mellow "lite fm" kinda tunes anyway! You'll like it, I swear.
