I just laugh at the video now, but, yeah the track is pretty good actually.

I don't care for most British front men/singers they all put on a very gay/homosexual act that in my younger years was a huge distraction from the music and vaulted these groups into the "Act" catagory.
I think that honor belongs to Elvis, he just wore nicer clothes. I like the cover of Route 66 that the Stones did.

It just doesn't work on any level for me, except perhaps the music track, which I can't disparage. I can't say I disliked the way they sang it either, just the visuals make me want to hurl. If I was asked to approve this for release, I would seriously laugh in their faces, like "Are you serious?". You can do better than that. You forgot the party.
I couldn't agree more. Besides the party, the only other thing missing was Billy Squier dancing there with them.

Van Halen:

Karen Carpenter:

Bowie & Jagger are way too...........softy for my bitter taste!
Yeah, I'm kinda biased to the VH version, but my hippy parents were always playing the Mamas and the Papas.

Classic. We have to contact the producers of Family Guy. Ha!

Some people just shouldn't expose their dancing to the masses lol. Me included for sure lol.
Elaine! That's the truth. He would give her a run for her money. That was a great Seinfeld.
