Crazy good song, just plain crazy German video!
That was used in a car commercial. Volkswagen, I think.

VW did use it in a commercial, nearly 10 years later. About a smelly kerb chair two guys pick up in their Jetta. Oh those Germans!

LOVE Weird Al! And he has tons of hits- but two will probably always be some of his biggest hits ever. Very Happy Cool

(This is from 1990 but close enough, especially as they dress like they're in the 60s) And, don't forget, Groove is in the Heart by Dee-Lite

Some more trivia: In Michael Jackson's Beat It, the guitar solo is by Eddie Van Halen. In the video during the rumble fight/dance near the end, you see some guys with blue bandanas (during the dance, they are along the back wall). These are real members of the L.A. street gang The Crips. The video was filming in a Crips neighborhood so use them as extras. The guy in the black T-shirt, white pants and white jacket with the dragon on the back was the videos choreographer.

In the Barnes and Barnes video for Fish Heads, the bum near the beginning is played by a radio DJ called Dr. Demento.

Nice selection! I'm not familiar with all of these, but there are a few favorites for me in there- the Quarterflash song I definitely know. And I love The Buggles' song! Very Happy Cool
"Only The Lonely" by The Motels is a favorite too- and definitely "Walking on Sunshine" by Katrina and the Waves! Cool

She's got a smile that, it seems to me, reminds me of childhood memories where everything was as fresh as a bright blue sky...sky...sky.

I love the backup singers. The one in the middle acts whiter than sour cream. Treat Your Mother Right by Mr. T

LOL! Love the Mr. T song- awesome! Very Happy Cool I don't know all those songs, but I've heard of most all of them- great bands. I particularly love "Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns 'N' Roses and The Eurythmics song, "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)". And "Cars" by Gary Numan- classic '80s song. You'd think The Cars might have done a cover of this song at some point though. Laughing Cool

Mr. Telephone Man, there's something wrong with my line!
