    I know it's corny disco-era AOR, but can't get enough of stuff like this :D. It just takes me back to a time I never lived in; driving a Trans Am to the beach in 1982 before smart phones, before the internet, before reality TV...

    The heart wants what the heart wants... it's not dumb at all.
    And I used to drive a 1973 Camaro (named Roxanne) to the beach.

    Everybody gotta love something. Yea, not my cup, but I like things that others don't. Also, I drove a black screaming eagle Trans Am once, very fast.

    For instance, I like this:

    I felt like Beavis and butthead watching that video, overwhelmed by how much it sucks.

    Yes! I am a poop head. Just ask Lisa lol.

    Just an old techno mix of mine. I was trying to do something totally the opposite of what I do on guitar.

    Here's a more rockin' one by Le Rous (they're one of my fav bands from Louisiana). Hopefully you'll like this better... Late 70's and early 80's AOR is my favorite music. I could just listen to SRV and Hendrix but I like a little more complexity and keyboard melodies...

    Not at all.

    I mean, you may very well be dumb, but I don't think liking this song/video has anything to do with it. ;)

    Haha! He had my favorite quote from any movie ever: "Many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Slor that day, I can tell you." Moranis played the Lewis Tully/Vinz Clortho character perfectly. I also loved Moranis in Parenthood, Spaceballs, Strange Brew, even Honey I Shrunk the Kids. He's just the consummate dork. I can relate.

    I hit play, the opening synth line kicked in, I felt that wrong part of the 80’s vibe, then scrolled down to see your post that was EXACTLY what I was about to post!:D

    OP, if you’re feeling it, then by all means rock b@llz to it, but in my personal opinion, that is some seriously cheesy stuff that epitomizes some of the worst music of the 80’s. I was in high school in the late 80’s and that would’ve made us puke in the parking lot. Sorry, but you asked man! My final answer to your question is yes.

    No, you’re possibly dumb for announcing the fact though!
