Nostalgia and Airtime


(PS — You might have to watch it on YouTube. It’s worth it, I promise.)

I could say a few things about the before Weird Al version of this song, particularly the music video. Namely, that regardless of the emphasis on making sure “to do it right,” there’s still an unsettling treatment of “winning” a woman’s attention or affection the same way one might “win” a stuffed animal in an arcade game.

On the flip side, the worst thing I can say about this version is… isn’t that actually seven words?
