Jimmy Fallon and Jack Black Recreate This Classic
What classic video do you remember rocking out to on MTV and VH1? You know, the channels used to play music videos 24-7? I loved Jimmy Fallon and Jack Black's rendition of "More Than Words" by Extreme.
I remember seeing Extreme and ZZ Top at The Ballpark in Old Orchard Beach. This song was huge! This parody with Jack Black and Jimmy Fallon is hilarious...
It got me thinking, if you could remake a favorite video from your youth, which one would it be? For me it would be "November Rain" by Guns N Roses. It was 1992 and Stephanie Seymore was dating Axel Rose. She looked so cool in that wedding dress, short in the front and long in the back. I wanted to wear a dress just like this, but I don't have the though gap needed to pull it off, damn it.
Then there's Slaughter! I had a massive crush on Mark Slaughter and "Fly to the Angels" was my favorite song in 1990. I loved the way Mark's hair blew in the video. I wished I was in the front row and that he was singing to me.
And then there's Warrant. I didn't have a crush on Jani Lane, I had a girl crush on his wife Bobbie Brown. She was the most winningest model on "Star Search" and I wanted to look just like her. Once again, I did not have the thigh gap to pull off those short shorts but I bought a revealing red halter at RAVE in the Maine Mall, set up a fan in front of my mirror and pretended.
