Occasional Forgotten Video-Matthew Sweet's "Girlfriend"
This one is from 1992. Back in the day, WXRT's morning dj Lin Bremer used to introduce this one by saying "Whenever I'm having a rough day, I lean my face up against the speaker and turn this one up real loud."
I love this vid, with the animation cadged from some anime. The song itself is old school, proving that contrary to popular belief, the face-blistering guitar solo isn't dead. The album cover was pretty nice too, featuring a picture of a young Tuesday Weld.
In my wildest rock and roll fantasy, I'm playing drums on that cut. But since I have no idea how to play drums, I have to settle for air drums. Every single time I hear it.
