Never thought I'd have a favorite music video, but...

I came very late to MTV and left early; anyway I wasn't nuts about what I saw. But against all hope, I now have a favorite-ever music video, so I can die happy and fulfilled.

The Safes are probably my favorite Chicago band; I believe I wrote their first notice in a sort-of-big publication (the Chicago Reader), at least ten years ago now. This is my favorite among their songs, the footage makes them look kind of like the Replacements with less beer bloat, and there's a huge language-geek component in the video, so there you go. Favorite video.

Too bad the Yahoo Music hype copy is so damned obnoxious.
