Music Video of The Day: Where Have All The Cowboys Gone? by Paula Cole (1997, dir. by Caitlin Fenton)


If you’re wondering where all the cowboys have gone, you’re not alone.  I wonder that too whenever I see a video of some vegan freaking out over having to kill a spider.  Where have all the cowboys gone?  They’re probably working on a ranch and too busy to get on social media.  The world may be changing but men who ride bulls are still way more appealing than men who beg for retweets.

This song is actually about a break-up.  The singer has broken up with her boyfriend and now she’s wondering where all the cowboys have gone.  In the video, she’s singing about it in a dead forest.  Maybe that’s the problem.  She’s looking for cowboys but she’s hanging out on the set of a horror movie.  You’re not going to find many cowboys there.  Stop hanging out in the forest and get down to Fort Worth for the stock show.

I’m glad the Dallas Cowboys never tried to make this their official song.
