It's a Music Video Kind of Day

Although I actually really loved Zeppelin, I'm not a huge fan of this particular song because it's so over-done. But Heart absolutely nails it. And you know they've nailed it when they get a standing ovation from Zeppelin plus tears from Page. That's how a homage is done.

So I hate Miley Cyrus' songs. And I've been avoiding her newest. But this country version is fantastic. And I'll pretend it's the only one out there.

I don't know what it is about Cher, but she's one of those people that gets carte blanche from me. She shows up in a waist-length newspaper shredded wig that looks like Mustafa's mane, and I say oh Cher, I didn't know that was something I needed in my life till now. Let me treasure you some more. (but, not as dirty as that sounds) Just like this video of her entrance on David Letterman where she descends on a swing while My Country 'Tis of Thee plays (the second video in the article). Because somehow, that is perfect and everything I want about a Cher entrance.

A song that's apparently huge in The Netherlands right now. And I may have listened to this repeatedly since discovering it.
