Dear Looney Tunes Friends,
I remember growing up watching a lot of music videos on MTV (yes, I am an old dude). It was fun. I even remember sitting in front of the TV waiting for video premieres! Videos are an exciting way for artists to add a visual element to their music. A good music video may make you laugh…..or cry. All good music videos evoke emotions upon its audience.
Each week I will post a video that I like. For the artist that is featured in the video, I will put their latest release on sale for $2 below our cost! If you like what you see, pick up their new CD or LP. Sale is found only on this page and is active for one week.
This week we’re featuring an old video from the very early days of MTV. It was a classic in its day and I think it still holds up really well. Peter Gabriel is a true musical genius, and his music videos were incredibly innovative and groundbreaking for their time. Check out this video of “Shock the Monkey”. It was played constantly upon its release in 1982 and for years after!
If you’ve never seen this video, please enjoy… you’re in for a treat. If you are familiar with it…take a trip down memory lane. And as always, let me know what you think!
This week’s VOTW comes with TWO Featured Releases. First, the album on which Shock The Monkey appears, 1982’s Security. Second, Gabriel’s 1990 Greatest Hits collection, Shaking The Tree: Sixteen Golden Greats.
