Music Video of the Day: The Heat Is On by Glenn Frey (1984, dir by ????)

I picked this video for one reason.

Check out my weather forecast for the next few days:

That’s right!  Today and tomorrow, the temperature is supposed to get up to 109 degrees!  Then on Monday, it’ll only get up to 108 and we’ll finally get some relief on Tuesday when the high plunges down to 101!

Indeed, the heat is on.

(It could be worse.  Yesterday, they were saying that the high would hit 110 on Saturday.  We’ve gone down a degree!  Yay!)

Seriously, the heat in Texas is so bad that, on Thursday, I could barely even drive home.  I had to steer with my finger tips because it was literally impossible for me to grip the steering while without burning my hands!  If I have to spend this summer driving with oven mitts on my hands, I’m not going to be in a good mood…

As for the song, it was written for the 1984 film, Beverly Hills Cop.  The video features clips from that film, mixed in with footage of an editor working in the heat and the band bringing the heat.

Anyway, on a serious note, be careful out there everyone.  Keep your pets inside.  It might be a good idea to keep yourself inside too.  Usually I hate the idea of wasting a weekend but, when it’s this hot, you really don’t have much choice but to spend a few days being lethargic.

Enjoy the video!

Music Video of the Day: Go! by Public Service Broadcasting (2015, dir by ????)

Seeing as how today is Moon Day, this seems like the perfect time to pick this video for music video of the day!

This is from Public Service Broadcasting’s 2015 album, The Race For Space.  As you can probably guess from the title, every song deals with the American/Soviet space race of the 50s, 60s, and 70s.  Go!, the eighth track from the album, deals with the first moon landing.


Music Video of the Day: Mojo by Peeping Tom, featuring Rahzel, Dan The Automator (2006, dir by Matt McDermitt)

This video was released 12 years ago.  Watching it today, it’s interesting that television hasn’t changed much.  The cop show, the infomercial, the porn film, the horror film, the evangelist, every single one of them is currently playing somewhere.

Yes, that is Danny DeVito sitting on the couch at the end of the video.  I like to think that he’s meant to be Frank Reynolds.


Music Video of the Day: Lilac by Blue Hawaii (2018, dir by ????)

This is an interesting video.

On the one hand, it leaves me wishing that I was on a beach somewhere, preferably Hawaii but I’d even settle for Daytona.  Maybe not Atlantic City, though.  That’s way too far up north.  And don’t even get me started on the beaches in Maine.

On the other hand, it also leaves me worried that something really, really bad is about to happen.  It’s a video that manages to be both positive and ominous at the same time.


Music Video of the Day: Crazy Master by Marijuana Deathsquads (2012, dir by Isaac Gale)

Let’s take a trip through the desert with Marijuana Deathsquads!

Though the video came out long before the TV show, it’s still difficult for me to watch this without thinking about Twin Peaks: The Return.  As I watched, I kept expecting either Cooper or his doppelganger to drive by, searching for JUDY.
