Josie’s On A Vacation Far Away

YouTube is like online porn. It’s interesting for a minute, and then you just feel dirty. This is why I prefer Skinimax. (Which I just finally re-subscribed to, yay! I mean, I don’t watch that.)

But anyway, YouTube just brought this back into my life, so I can’t hate on it too much. This may be the greatest song ever! Okay, that’s an overstatement. And since you all know my love for 80s soft rock, I basically have no credibility left to say something like that. But it’s about to be a long weekend (a lo-oo-ooong weekend contending with crazy relatives), and we’ve all been working too hard and could use something fun. Am I right or am I right? Put this on and rock the eff out like I did. Because if dancing in front of your laptop is wrong, I don’t want to be right.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

    Every time I thought the video couldn’t get any better, there would be an awesome fade or a close-up on the scary man perm. YES!

    This is one of those songs that if I heard it in the car, I’d sing loudly and and gleefully, but if you cornered me and asked if I had ever done such a thing, I would deny it to the death.

    I always thought it was “Josie’s on a vacation for a week.”

    Kickass song, but in no way ‘soft rock’. Soft rock, in the 80’s at least (we could write a book about 70’s soft rock) describes artists such as Air Supply, Christopher Cross, and perhaps most of Chicago’s output of the decade. The Outfield is certainly not on that list – they were tough as nails. Just think, thay named themselves after the largest, but least populous portion of a baseball field, signifying that Tony, John and Alan stood together against the sea of fly balls hit to them from rock critics, more agressive artists, and the record-buying public. So there!

    -R-, Libragirl, and Jess, RIGHT?!

    Nabbalicious, so do you unabashedly own the wonderfulness that is Josie now?

    3c, either way, it’s 80s gold.

    Keith, to be fair, I wasn’t saying that the song is soft rock, I was saying that my love for 80s soft rock predisposes me to having bad taste. But regardless, thank you for the “least populous portion of a baseball field” observation.

    “Anonymous,” I’m pleased to no end that my blog is another forum for you and Keith to continue calling each other gay. 😉

    The best part besides, well, the whole thing, was the one second aerial shot of the dude in the trench coat and sunglasses half-assedly pretending to be playing two keyboards. I don’t think there was any keyboard going on at that point in the song.
