Ok Go: This Too Shall Pass

Yesterday afternoon I was flipping through the channels when I wound up on Classic VH-1. They were playing Don Johnson’s “Heart Beat” which features a guitar solo by Dweezil Zappa. This was immediately followed by “Freeze Frame” by the J. Geils Band. Needless to say there was much inner squee-age, though there would’ve been more it the first video had been DZ’s cover of FZ’s “My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Mama”, which I somehow never saw. Yes, I know. Bad fangirl. No cookie for me!

Anyway, after completing today’s errands I decided (for shits and grins) to see if I could find a copy of this video online. I honestly didn’t think I’d find one. At least not one of decent quality. The Zappa Trust tends to be rather protective of their properties, dontcha know? :P But a nice one I did find! I’m somewhat confused over why didn’t get more airtime on MTV given the crap that was available at that time, especially from the hard rockers (you know: men with big hair, tight spandex, publicly beating off playing strategically slung guitars, while prancing about in front of the video cameras).

I larfed. I cried. I larfed some more.

And now I’m going to share it with you poor schmucks! :)

Cut for those on LJ
