So Will went with me to do the kid exchange one state over, to keep me from driving off a cliff, and so we had a lot of time to talk. Well, we get to chatting about the songs on the radio. I’m driving, so of course we’re listening to Sirius 8, the Big ’80’s (or “Oldies Music” to the kids). We get to talking about Bill Idol and “Cradle of Love” came up. So, as a girlie, I say “I bet as a teen you were loving the video for ‘Cradle of Love’”. He says “I’ve never seen it”. Well of course I don’t believe this, because I know he wasn’t raised under a rock, or on the moon. And I’m older than he is, so they had MTV back in the day when he was a kid. And back then it really was Music TeleVision. They played music videos and everything. So I describe the video and he still swears he’s never seen it.
Of course, that’s practically a challenge to me. Finding an old music video, with nothing but Google and YouTube as my tools, can it be done? Well, it was easy. You can catch the video out over at DailyMotion as well as a few other places. This video was hot enough to apparently make a great many teenage boys in the early 90’s stand up and take notice. So now he’s seen it, and he said he could definitely see what all the fuss was about. Still swears he’s never seen it before though. Whatever.
