It's still Music Month, right?

If so, here's Mike Brady's favorite tune (no, it's not a Village People song)...



Seriously, "Marconi plays the Mamba, Listen to the radio"? What the hell does that even mean?

well, marconi invented the radio, and...yeah...no idea.

but that's a sublime bit of absurdity to kick off the day.

I thought it was "while Tony plays with Rumba, listen to the radio"

I believe its Roomba...one of those self-propelled vacuums.

Why wouldn't you use the version the features Colonial Williamsburg in the video?

So disappointing...

You're shitting me...such a thing exists?

Wasn't that the video to "The Valley Road" by Bruce Hornsby? I know that was filmed in Blow Gym (always the most fun campus building to mention in conversation with mixed company).

This is the worst song ever written.

I concur. And so do most of the musicians from Jefferson Airplane who would NEVER have been associated with "Starship" and wince that people make that connection.

This song showed up on a bunch of 80's compilations. It is utterly horrendous.

Here is some 80's cheese dance music: http://tinyurl.com/2xtogb to offset the 'Starship'.
