The Smithereens: Blues Before and After

September 15, 2009

I think this is one of the greatest unknown rock singles of all time, but that’s because it’s really easy to play, and we used to riff into it whenever drunks were getting angry at our originals. So it holds a special place in our hearts.

This was going to be used as a future Worst Music Video Ever of the Week, but I couldn’t do it. I like this video, despite its cheesy tightjeansiness and its blatant attempt to be “modern.” The Smithereens do it right.

It looks like Bevan got me going on a music jag again.
