“Can’t Fight This Feeling”- REO Speedwagon


Guilty pleasure songs.  Everyone has one.  The most common one is “The Lion Sleeps Tonight”.  That song is just annoying.  I hate that song.  There is just one song that makes me grin like a Cheshire cat and want to sing at the top of my lungs while doing stupid slow motion 80’s dancing.  That song REO Speedwagon’s “Can’t Fight This Feeling”.  The song is good, but I have problems admitting that I actually like the darn song.  I have no idea why.  Kind of like I have some issues with admitting that there are songs by Milly Cyrus that I like.   For those I just have to not think about who is singing.  The video for “Can’t Fight This Feeling” though… I mean the still really says a lot about this video.  Well, here just watch it.

Ah, 80’s music videos.  I am just really surprised at how almost creepy it is.  It makes me laugh so hard to watch it.  Especially the facial expressions of Kevin Cronin.  Also, the other members of the band with their curly hair remind me of hobbits.  I mean, that is just odd.  Kevin just looks like a creeper in this video.  Then there is the weird graphics that look like they were done on an old DOS computer.  Creepy.

The song is beautiful and I really wish they would do an updated video free of weird floating candles.  I mean, for the day when it was made I am sure it was the bees knees, but now It just looks like a creepy stalker video.  Somebody please do something about this video.
