Oh man … what can I say about Hall & Oats that hasn’t already been said. I remember seeing this video as a kid and just being amazed by it. The big drum set, them getting run over by it, and then their flatten bodies being posted on the wall. As an adult, I appreciate Oats totally hamming is up in the background and especially when they’re trapped in the drum. Also: Oats is obviously the more fashionable of the two – Zubas with hi-top Nikes – too much. Is Oats wears legging with white Nikes in one of the scenes? EVEN BETTER.
And this video … as a kid I was fascinated with the part where Oats is swimming by on a cloud.
The daycare that I went to as a kid used to do field trips to a skating rink. They had some random stuff from the Disney Channel and a few music videos from MTV that they would play on a projector tv while we skated around – this was one of the videos. I loved this song, but it wasn’t till much, MUCH later that I learned that the lyrics were “What does it matter?” instead of “Mind over Matter.”
And how can we forget this fever dream of a Christmas video? Honestly probably one of my favorite covers of Jingle Bell Rock.
