Sold

I used to watch a lot of music videos. Mainly because I could. Or couldn't. See, I was forbidden to watch them while living with my parents since my Mom (quite rightly the way I see it now in my all grown up* wisdom mind you) felt they were "bubble gum for the mind" and "semi-pornographic". So when my folks were out, or when I eventually lived on my own I watched a lot of music videos.

Sometimes I find that the moment of when I first hear a song combined either with the video or the situation will cement that song into my mind as awesome. Forever. I've found some cool new artists this way and was reminded (by a trip into American Eagle Outfitters the other day, did you know they play music and music videos in the shop REALLY LOUD AND WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY I CAN'T HEAR YOU OVER THE MUSIC?) of how much I love Ben Harper.

This is the song, and video that sold me on him. I'm still digging it. And him. Rock on brothers.**


Ben Harper - Ground on Down

*All grown up? Ha! Who are we kidding?

**Please tell me Desmond will still be around next season, brother?

Ben Harper - one of my favorites. In the era of crap music he is always there putting out quality stuff. Hey Victoria - do you know a Canadian artist named Remy Shand? He put out an amazing first album like 5 years ago and then disappeared.....

And HELLO Desmond?? YUMMY

Yeah, he better be around, even if it's just flash forwards to how happy he is with Penny :)

I haven't checked those recaps out, but I will now! :D
