Video Time-Warp #14: Marcy Playground – “Sex and Candy”
First of all, I’d like to commend these guys on combining the two great aspects of our society that needed to be brought together. How American society got through the 70s without a song that combined sex and candy, I will never know. but by the late 90s, it was high time those two be [Ȃ…
Video Time-Warp #13: Smash Mouth – “All-Star”
Subscribe to WRRV on Youtube 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. But between William H. Macy, Ben Stiller, and Dane […
Video Time-Warp #12: Tal Bachman – “She’s So High”
Subscribe to WRRV on Youtube 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 stupidi…
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. The pressure on the sinuses, the physical exhaustion. It’s almost too much for the mind to [Ȃ…
Video Time-Warp #10: OMC – “How Bizarre”
Subscribe to WRRV on Youtube 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 co…
Video Time-Warp Episode #9: SR-71 – “Right Now”
Subscribe to WRRV on Youtube 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 …
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–cle…
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…
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. This isn’t really the type of song I like but I can’t r…
