The intention was to be cute and put up two themed videos—the 4th of July by the Los Angeles band X and then Firework by Katy Perry. But X didn’t really write the song and there weren’t any good videos for it so I put this one up instead. X was the best American band of the 1980’s and never got their due. The video above is We’re Desperate, from the movie Decline of Western Civilization.
My kids are grooving on Katy Perry. I have heard this song and watched the video more than some of my very favorite songs. And after watching the Justin Bieber movie, Never Say Never (It was excellent) I have to admit that I am psyched for her movie.
