What's a Girl to Do?

A friend showed me this video last weekend. What a gem. Remember videos? When they were good, like this one, the instant you heard the song the video would pop into your head. That keeps happening to me with this song now.

Remember when you could watch videos for hours on end? I'm sure there are still good videos being made, but I never see them. I grew up watching the birth of MTV, when it was good it was good. I used to dig it anyway.

My favorite video memories (if I were more on top of it, I would link them all here, but that just isn't going to happen); Genesis - Land of 1,000 Dances. A-Ha, of course. Foo Fighters - Learn to Fly. The White Stripes Lego video. The Cars video where Ric Okasek is a fly. Nirvana - Smells Like teen Spirit. I'm sure there are more, but these are the ones that come to mind right now.
