Music Video Of The Day: Animals Medley, performed by David Johansen (1982, directed by ????)


It’s a crime that more people don’t know the name of David Johansen.  The former lead singer of the New York Dolls, Johansen has one of the best voices around and he is unique in that there is not a single genre of music that he has not been able to master.  Of course, Johasen is often cited as one of the earliest punk rockers but he has gone on to perform everything from claypso to lounge to country music.  Johansen has performed under many names, the best known of which is probably Buster Poindexter.  It was as Buster Poindexter that he recorded his highest-charting song, Hot Hot Hot, a song that Johansen has called “the bane of my existence,” because of it’s continued popularity.

This music video features Johansen at his best.  Recorded during his solo period, the Animals Medley features three songs from The Animals: We Gotta Get Out of This Place, Don’t Bring Me Down, and It’s My Life.

Enjoy!
