Classic 70s Music Video Of The Day: Kiss

This is one of those songs that makes you feel like you need a shower afterwards so you can wash off all the smarm and lech.



A few thoughts:

I didn't know David Carradine was in Exile.

I never got the "'til the night closes in" part. Why stop then, dumbass? That's when things start getting good. What, you got somewhere else to be? "'Til the night closes in--then I gotta go clean offices."

Nice drums, Neal Peart. Like you need two kick drums--did you even use the first one? Cuz you never touched the toms or a cymbal, either, ya silly side-sticker. You should sell everything but the snare and hi-hat and use the money to buy a belt, because suspenders like that only work for mimes and Mork.

    Thanks for that. Now I'll have that visual stuck in my head whenever I hear that song. WTF was that little maneuver at 1:58?

    That was just all kinds of creepy!

  3. I'm still waiting for Chris de Burgh.

    It's amazing what they were doing with animatronics back then (1:52).

  4. You can't go wrong with Chris de Burgh. I wonder if it was "The Lady In Red" or "Don't Pay The Ferryman"? Either way--ya got no complaints.

  5. Wow, I've never seen that one before. I remember the song, of course, because I'm old, but that was 12 kinds of creepy! The lead singer (a.k.a. David Carradine) was the only one selling it. The other guys were just phoning it in. And by phoning it in I mean staring eerily at the camera and freaking me the hell out. I have NEVER seen a mullet like the one on the keyboard player on the right. And that's saying something because I live in Mulletville. (Right outside Hooterville but unfortunately nowhere near Margaritaville.)

  6. RGR, for real on the mullet guy. He had the classic Overcompensationmullet.

  7. We used to sing "I want to kiss your dog, Rover" then the rest of the words. It would make us laugh hysterically by the end. Teenage girls, what can I say?

  8. That made me laugh, too, Woodwoman.

  9. I want to piss in the clover? heh :P

    Are those supposed to be lips on the floor of the stage there in front? They look like giant leeches to me.

  10. What's up with the 70s and early 80s and the boring songs about sex? I was watching Glee the other day and "Afternoon Delights" came in. Is that supposed to get people in the mood?

  11. chrocs is right - that's a song about a nooner! ah, the 70s were unique.

  12. Geeeyaaaaauugggh. Night of the living dead pedobears. And look, they have a gyrating necromancer - it's a damn good thing David Carradine there didn't have a mic stand. God knows what horrors he would have inflicted upon it.

    Watching "Glee", or the song?

    Cause if watching teenagers caterwauling through the Top 40 gets your motor running, seek help.

    And besides that kind of song isn't for getting in the mood, its mostly background noise/advanced warning* for anyone not involved in the actual afternoon delight. (*As in do not come in unless you want permanent mental scars.)

  14. Nothing gets this lady in the mood faster than close-ups of slow key changes on a synthesizer.

    Play it, baby!

  15. The song, I mean. If someone gets frisky while watching Glee, they are in serious trouble. These songs are so Muzak, that I can totally imagine a Sears type store playing them in the background.

  16. I remember when "Afternoon Delight" was on the radio. Even as (older) kids we knew it was about sex and it was embarrassing if you heard it in front of someone...like the time it came on the radio in my grandparents' car on the way to my grandma's weekly hair appointment at Macon Mall. My sister and I were mortified.
