Video Time-Warp #13: Smash Mouth – “All-Star”

Look at the star power of this video! In 1999, the smart money on who would be the most famous people to emerge from this music video would have been… I dunno, probably Kel Mitchell. Maybe Smash Mouth as a band

Video Time-Warp #12: Tal Bachman – “She’s So High”

I've noticed a recurring theme in all of these nostalgic songs from the end of the 20th Century--and probably one of songs throughout the majority of history--is that they're about these vaguely victimized young women who suffer from the stupidity of the person singing the song who then has to make amends

Video Time-Warp #11: Nine Days – “Absolutely (Story of a Girl)”

Imagine the migraine one would have if he or she cried enough to fill an entire room. Crazy, right? Well, this is is the story of a girl who cried a RIVER and that river drowned the whole WORLD

Video Time-Warp #10: OMC – “How Bizarre”

Before Lorde, New Zealand's most famous musical export was this gem. No disrespect to the great work done by Flying Nun Records, but this thing was bumping from the cars of (white, nerdy) people all over the country for an entire summer.

This video looks like a commercial for a local restaurant that's had at least a

Video Time-Warp Episode #9: SR-71 – “Right Now”

This song was everywhere in the summer of 2000. It was inescapable. And, like our first Video Time-Warp, this jam was featured on the soundtrack to the forgettable Jason Biggs/Mena Suvari vehicle Loser in the same year.

So, the premise to video about this song about someone who is in a dysfunctional rela

Video Time-Warp #8: Citizen King – “Better Days (And the Bottom Drops Out)”

 

The record industry is nothing if not a pack of copycats, so I guess the mentality at some point in the 90s was "We need another Beck. Find him." And one of the results, clearly, was Citizen King.

Video Time-Warp #7: The Urge – “Jump Right In”

I unabashedly love everything about this song. I can't explain it, but then again, there are many things about this video/song I can't explain. We'll get into those. Oh, will we ever.

 

We open with the lead singer (sporting a very late-90s facial piercing) lying--clearly uncomfortably--in a round bed. In

Video Time-Warp #6: American Hi-Fi – “Flavor of the Weak”

Pun in the title? Check. Catchy-ass song? Check. Goofy 80s theme-video? Check. Song about a guy-being-perfect-for-her-even-though-she-doesn't-realize-it? Oh yes. Check and check.

I mean, what early 2000s trait DOESN'T this song have?

I, for one, love having to sit through 35 seconds of the concept of a music video before the music even starts

Video Time-Warp #5: Dexter Freebish – “Leaving Town”

 

This is a ridiculously nostalgic song for me. It was all over WRRV circa late-2000, and I think they might have played at The Chance or done some in-store appearances for the station in the Middletown area around this time. Thi

Video Time-Warp #4: Everything – “Hooch”

I've focused on kind of the hooky, power-pop influenced songs of WRRV past so far, and therefore it's time to introduce something a little more relaxed.

This song was on the soundtrack of The Waterboy, has been in episodes of a handful of TV shows including Scrubs, and will be played in perpetuity at every Class of '98 reunion of anything ever
