A Song A Day – March 28th: Here it goes again!

27 03 2011

They say the devil makes work for idle thumbs and sure enough that was true tonight as youtube got the better of me. Nicely killing an hour or so on the big Y, I got watching some music videos and live performances from some the likes of Guns and Roses, Tomoyasu Hotei and Pink Floyd, as well as watching some web series episodes on gametrailers.

It was with the former that I rewatched a favourite music video of mine for the umpteenth time, and it always gets better with age. In a ridiculously simple video (it’s one shot) the content and choreography is bang on the money – a unique hybrid between awesome and comedy.

It’s pretty easy to see why this video went viral and has been referenced in popular culture several times. Throw in the fact that the song is decent also and you’ve got a winner on both counts.

8 treadmills, 4 guys and 1 piece of epic winning awesomeness – OK Go – Here It Goes Again. Contender for greatest music video ever.

It could be ten, but then again, I can’t remember half an hour since a quarter to four.
Throw on your clothes, the second side of Surfer Rosa, and you leave me with my jaw on the floor.

[Chorus:]
Just when you think that you’re in control,
just when you think that you’ve got a hold,
just when you get on a roll,
here it goes, here it goes, here it goes again.
Oh, here it goes again.
I should have known,
should have known,
should have known again,
but here it goes again.
Oh, here it goes again.

It starts out easy, something simple, something sleazy, something inching past the edge of the reserve.
Now through lines of the cheap venetian blinds your car is pulling off of the curb.

[Chorus]

I guess there’s got to be a break in the monotony, but Jesus, when it rains how it pours.
Throw on your clothes, the second side of Surfer Rosa, and you leave me, yeah, you leave me.

[Chorus]
