Song of the Week - She's A Beauty - The Tubes

I have 5,351 songs in my iTunes library. This is one of them.

My alphabetical playing of my iPod has gotten me to songs starting with the word "She". There are a bunch of them. This song is by The Tubes. The song was released in 1983. To me, it has the perfect 1980s sound. That doesn't necessarily make it a good song, there was a lot of terrible pop music in the '80s. For me, this song is kind of a guilty pleasure. I'd never seen the video for this song but found it on YouTube. It's pretty bizarre but, again, a perfect example of videos from the period.

Holy crap, I haven't seen that video in 20 years. I can't decide if it's cool or creepy. The boobie drum set rocks though. I'd forgotten about that.

Yeah, I had the same cool/creepy feeling myself. I think the presence of little kid sends it into the creepy realm.
