Music Video of the Day: Busy Child by The Crystal Method (1997, dir by ????)


“I guess I didn’t know…”

The song is a classic with the famous “I guess I didn’t know” sampled by Eric B & Rakim’s Know the Ledge and the “Get busy, child!” created with the help of DJ Pierre’s track, Summertime (Is Get Busy Time).  The song first appeared on Vegas, which is why the video itself opens with footage of Nevada’s best known city.  (Sorry, Carson City!)

There were two versions of this video.  One version was directed by Lance Bangs and Eli Bonerz.  The second version, which was released to capitalize on Busy Child‘s use on the soundtrack of 1998’s Lost In Space, was directed by Clark Eddy.  To be absolutely honest, I’m not sure which version this is.  I suspect that it’s the first one, if just because of the lack of clips from Lost In Space.

If you haven’t danced to this song, you haven’t danced.

Enjoy!
