Yeah, I'll have to agree with you there, although VH is a close second. There's some good cowbell in there.

It was one of their best cut-away scenes they did. Saw it a while ago but a rerun just played recently and reminded me of it.

Having said that, I heard it on the car radio the other day for the first time in many years. I enjoyed hearing the contrasting way each of the guys sang their lines and the pop arrangement is well done.

Of course, this could be construed as an indictment of the other stuff on the radio more than the quality of the cover ...
Rick Astley and Billy Squier! Now it's a party. ha ha! Actually, I don't think the version is all that bad.

Oh yeah! That video is so bad that it's good. Check out the Billy Squier one too. Shame!
