A Global Army of Veteran Rockers
Jeez, Gail, you're channeling me from about five years ago...I posted this very question on another website. And as I recall, my answer was...don't laugh..."Crazy Horses" by the Osmond Brothers. The slide guitar lick is so totally gozo, and the song is so surprisingly heavy given it's the perfect-teeth brigade singing it, I can't help but give it a thumbs up.
Oh yeah Eric..Bring on DA Funk!...I cannot help but wonder if this one got the boys hauled to the Temple for a talkin to!!...My day is officially made ..(note my boy Jay keeping the beat)
Oh my gosh - did they borrow those outfits from George Clinton?!!
I guess the gonzo guitar riff was actually played on a keyboard. They were ahead of their time with the anti-pollution lyric.
The hats are just a nice touch...
and I'm sure Allen was warned to let up on the pelvic gyrations by a Temple elder...
if you can stand to..hang in there till he gives the victorious fist pump thingy move at the end with full eye contact...HOTNESS!
I think they may actually encourage pelvic gyrations...look how big their families are!
I have been rendered blind by the reflections off of the whiteness of their collective teeth. The horror, the horror.
but not UNDER the influence of caffeinated drinks..for there in lies "the true devil"..(crap... I hope we have no Tribe members from Utah or of the Mormon faith..or past of present members of Donny O's fan club.....mea culpa in advance if there are..)
This is exactly what this thread should be about. Terrific, totally-out-of-character song, otherwise schmaltzy (and caffeine-free!) band.
Every teen idol band should be required to endure a trial in which they wear George Clinton-inspired costuming for a period of time. This serves to inject some much-needed funk into their existence. If no funkiness is attained, their career should end immediately on the conclusion of the trial.
Because they took a vibrant sub-genre like country rock and sucked the life out of it?
That's why I can't stand them, anyway.
Two days after Gail posed this question here to the Tribe, the AV Club did the same: Great Song/Terrible Band
