Music Video Madness

Okay, this one is getting posted a bit late, but it has a very personal theme: songs that remind me of old loves.

Naked Eyes - Always Something There To Remind Me

Phil Collins - Against All Odds

By the time I heard this next one, I was in college without access to television. I actually never saw this before posting it here, so don’t ask me what the hell is going on in the video.

Bruce Cockburn - Lovers in a Dangerous Time

Although my wife denies it, to me this will always be our song.

Elvis Costello - Alison

Fair is Fair

Married 14 years, I took a look at my wife the other day and said, “Honey, 14 years ago, we had a tiny rental house, a cheap car, slept on a tiny bed and watched a tiny TV with crappy reception, but I got to sleep every night with a hot 30-year-old brunette. Now, we have a nice house, two nice cars, a queen-size bed and a big-screen plasma TV, but I’m sleeping with a 44-year-old woman. It seems to me that you’re not holding up your side of things.”

But my wife is a very reasonable woman.

She told me to go out and find a hot 30-year-old brunette, and she’d make sure that I would once again be living in a tiny rental house, driving a cheap car, and sleeping on a tiny bed.
