Do I Have a Treat for You

Yesterday's post--which is entirely too depressing to leave up any longer, so we're changing the subject--made me think of the phrase "riding the storm out."  Which, of course, means REO Speedwagon.  And that, of course, means another visit to YouTube to find another hilarious video featuring extremely unfortunate fashion choices.

May I present to you REO Speedwagon performing "Ridin' the Storm Out" on Burt Sugarman's Midnight Special (whatever the hell that was) in 1977.

Go watch it.  It will make your day a little more bearable and will certainly inspire laughter, if not incredulity that ANYONE would choose such a hairstyle or make such facial expressions.  (PLUS!  White sateen trousers! And what appears to be an artfully tied shawl standing in for a shirt.  Seriously.  Go look.)

No way I'd ever be able to link REO Speedwagon and a random thought of "riding the storm out." You never cease to amaze.

Of course, the same could be said for that video. Of course, in forty plus years our now and seemingly awesome videos will probably be the brunt of jokes as well. Luckily, I won't be around to see it.

Wolfman Jack.....Midnight just missed out on all that 70's goodness.

People should just be born knowing that white sateen is NEVER a good fashion call.
