My wife hates Stevie Nicks. So I'll turn up Fleetwood Mac if it comes on the radio just to mess with her.




Had to watch the beginning of this video a few times. \:\)




Awesome video, so cinematic. The song isn't anything special though. I wonder where that bridge is in real life. It's pretty neat looking.




Couldn't get through this one. Not into METAL.




This one was too sappy! Gosh, I'm picky.



Silly bubblegum pop song. Her Bond song "For Your Eyes Only" is one of the only Bond songs I can't stand, but I love her song "Morning Train."

Heh. The first time I saw the Asia video, I was at a Halloween Party in 1983, with MTV playing in the background. I was getting a good-sized buzz on (Yay, beer!) and the video came on. I almost bawled like a baby when I saw it! LOL Oh, man! \:D

Moral of this story? DON'T drink beer and watch MTV at the same time! ;\)

I think that Martin Briley video kind'a inspired my cosplay banners. LOL You can't quite turn away from THEM, either, can you? ;\)

I ALWAYS loved this particular Nicks song. It's been my favorite of her stuff since 1983. I NEVER get tired of this song. \:\)

And while I never cared for heavy metal that much, I had a friend who played "Rainbow In The Dark" or sang it so much, it finally GREW on me. (AAAAAHHHHH! Get it OFF! GET IT OFF!) ;\)

Good stuff, man. I had a thing for Stevie Nicks, back in the day. I never heard of Marin Brily and Wiki'd him. Man, he's worked with and for a ton of artists! I've always been a fan of Rainbow and I dig Street of Dreams. And Rainbow In The Dark? Epic heavy metal, Dio is truly a rock god.

Y'know, it's funny but I didn't remember that Asia song until I watched this video. I almost forgot they had a couple albums after the first. Anyway, it's a good tune. Same goes for the Sheena Easton song.

Thanks, Katefan! You'll see a lot more of each of these artists, except for perhaps Martin Briley (I'm PRETTY sure he was a one-hit wonder!) in upcoming Music Funs. \:\)

SOME of these artists were introduced to me through the very songs I just posted. ;\) What you said about Briley reminded me of Toni Basil ("Mickey"). She was only a one-hit wonder, too, but she also was a huge force behind the scenes. She'd worked with so many artists and bands it's not even funny. I think that's actually pretty neat. \:\)

Thanks again. \:\)

I remember this one. I've really grown to like Fleetwood Mac over the years. Stevie Nicks has an incredible voice.




I think I remember this. I would've been 13 in '83, so you'd think I'd remember the video!




I loved this video back then. The song still hits a nostalgic chord for me.




Oh Jeez! Dio! Holy Diver! This stuff was great when I was a kid.




I was just looking Asia at work last night. I think they were the first "supergroup" I'd heard of.




meh

I always liked this Sheena Easton song, and getting to play the video would've been PERFECT. If you can remember it, it had Dracula, The Frankenstein Monster, The Mummy, King Kong, and other Universal Monsters in the video. \:\)

Stevie's performance of Rhiannon with Fleetwood Mac on the Midnight Special I one of the greatest moments in rock/pop. If you haven't seen it I suggest you checkit out via youtube.

I'll have to check that out.
I just spent quite a bit of time trying to find the name of the song that had the video filmed in a baseball stadium. It was Tusk, filmed at Dodger Stadium.

And speaking of baseball. To Gernot: Red Sox vs Cardinals to see who's the team of the millennium (so far). should be good.

I hope it WILL be good. I still have nightmares over the '04 Series, when the Cards just COMPLETELY folded and lost four in a row. Yech! ;\)
