‘Paradise by the Dashboard Light.’

OK, technically this is from 1977. But it just IS what I think of when I think of MTV. So it goes in the rotation.

‘Paradise by the Dashboard Light.’

No, really, there’s a St. Patrick’s Day connection. I was taking the kids to Mickey Dee’s to get them a Shamrock shake (which they hated, but that’s another story) and this was playing while on the way. It was an open question if the song would end before I got to the speaker. Because of course I was singing along.

‘Paradise by the Dashboard Light.’

When MTV got started, this video was on all the time.  Which was awesome.

…And yes, I did this one already this year.  And now I’m doing it again.

I don’t want to be That Guy, but I do kind of miss the days when MTV would just play stuff like this all day because they weren’t really sure what the heck they should be playing.  I know, I know: that’s not really a smart business model. Also, nostalgia is a heck of a gateway drug.  But still.

I required Funyuns.  This was on the car radio.  I took it as a Sign.

This song has a strange and eldritch power over those of my generation.  And we don’t know why.
