The Virgins - FMD (NOT the video!)
So I first encountered this group this morning. They have a new video for this song. This is another reason why I generally don't dig music videos (though I post an awful lot of them, eh?). I watched about ten seconds of it and in the same flash of realization knew I loved the song but hated the video. Oh how I wish my first impression of the song had been cerebral instead of visual. Sorry, but the 80's video mock-up's been dead (to me at least) for some time - it's just not funny on any visual level at this point. But enough criticism, because again, I really dig the song.
