Millie B, I’m Sendin’ Fa Ya… With The Video Ya Deserve

September 28th, 2020

That’s right. Every Monday we give you a cheesy music video to get your drab week started with a laugh. It drops here on your site for fun entertainment and pop culture, QuadCities.com, every 9:09, every Monday. Now, last week we went into the rabbit hole of Blackpool Grime, a music genre that was most popular in Blackpool, England, around 2016-2017, to dig around and share the video for the TikTok viral song “M to the B,” by Millie B. But that’s not the full title to the song. It’s actually titled “M to the B (Soph Aspin Send).” So who the hell is Soph... Read More

It’s The Video You Deserve, and M M M M M To The B, M To The B…

September 21st, 2020

The Video You Deserve does not live on vintage videos alone. Sure, most weeks we give you a cheesy video to start your week, when we drop The Video You Deserve every Monday morning, usually one from the early days of the video in the ’80s and ’90s, but sometimes we mix it up to reflect more current videos that are just as cheesy and strange. Like this week’s entry. If you, or a child or friend, is on TikTok, you’ve undeniably heard the following line: “We all know the best MC is M to the B It’s M to the B It’s M M M M M to the B Bang!” Usually though,... Read More

Soy Un Perdidor… It’s The Video You Deserve Baby

September 14th, 2020

It’s Monday. The weather over the last week has sucked. Covid and 2020 suck. And in general you’re feeling like a loser. Well, DO WE HAVE THE VIDEO FOR YOU! There are certain videos and songs that are undeniably, indelibly, of their time, and today’s video is one of them. If you were putting together a time capsule of the early ’90s and Generation X (of which I’m a member, so I have a certain affinity), this video would be in there. The song, artist, and video so perfectly encapsulate the slacker smartass ethic of Gen X, even more so than Nirvana’s “Smells... Read More

Here We Go Again… It’s The Video You Deserve

September 7th, 2020

And here I go again on my own… Going down this lonely road to a vid you know… Cause it’s Monday you deserve some laughs alone… But you know what it means, when this column drops, and you say “this is so cheesy…” Yes. It is time. For the return of The Video You Deserve. Every Monday, we give you a cheesy music video to kick off your week with a laugh and a smile, and this week’s video is certainly one of the most iconic of all time. It launched the stardom of not only a band, but an actress and model who became ubiquitous with it. Of course, I’m... Read More

If Your Monday Is A Battlefield, Here’s The Video You Deserve

August 31st, 2020

It’s Monday, and it’s once again time for The Video You Deserve. Now, maybe aside from the usual case of the Mondays, you’re feeling like your life is a battlefield. Well, if that’s the case, then this video might just be extra special to you, and by “extra special,” I mean it’ll make you laugh so hard you might just forget your troubles for the moment. For there was a time, once we got past that initial era of video directors ripping a huge line of coke, saying “What the hell?” and throwing a white horse or strobe lights or smoke or pixies... Read More

If Your Life Is A Battlefield, You Need This Video You Deserve

August 24th, 2020

It’s Monday, and it’s once again time for The Video You Deserve. Now, maybe aside from the usual case of the Mondays, you’re feeling like your life is a battlefield. Well, if that’s the case, then this video might just be extra special to you, and by “extra special,” I mean it’ll make you laugh so hard you might just forget your troubles for the moment.

Word Up! It’s Time For A Sweet Video You Deserve

August 17th, 2020

It’s Monday, so how about some candy with your Video You Deserve? Sometimes we’ve got to dig a little deeper than the biggest hits to come up with the funniest videos for an artist. That’s the case this week. If I were to mention the act Cameo, I’d bet probably, once you remembered them, about 80 percent or more of you would remember their biggest hit, “Word Up,” and no doubt that song and video are fantastic. That tune, which hit the top 10 all over the world, including the U.S. and UK, was an undeniable smash, and had an awesomely goofy video which featured the band being taken in... Read More

You’ll Be Cold Busted If You Don’t Check Out The Video You Deserve!

August 10th, 2020

Its Monday, and you know what that means. That’s right. It’s time for The Video You Deserve. Mondays can be pretty dismal and dingy. And really, so is the subject matter of this song and video, but it’s so damn cheesy and goofy that it transcends what should and could be a much sadder subject. The subject is infidelity, the cold harshness of that freezing rain of a no-good cheating partner falling on you, before you walk in, cut up all their credit cards, and take back that $3700 lynx coat you got them, which is preferable to jammy flat-blasting both of them. Or, at least, that’s what Oran... Read More

You’ll Foster Good Will Towards The Latest Video You Deserve

August 3rd, 2020

It’s Monday, and it’s time once again for The Video You Deserve. Now, the past several videos we’ve featured have all been vintage stuff from the ‘80s, which, arguably, is the golden age of videos. Back then it was the wild west, there were no real rules, and imagination and strangeness ruled. As time went on, videos began to become more cliched and certain elements came up so often that we needed Beavis and Butthead to parody them. And once the reality TV plague set in, and every good-looking moron became a recording star, and MTV pretty much stopped playing videos in lieu of reality TV,... Read More

How About A Little Jelly Roll? It’s The Video You Deserve!

July 27th, 2020

Welcome back! It’s Monday, and you all know by now that means today you get your Video You Deserve. That’s right, every Monday, to begin your week with awesomeness, we, the kind, tender, gentle, loving, butt-kicking souls at QuadCities.com give you a cheesy music video to start your week with a laugh and maybe a weird video and catchy song or something. Well, today, you get both a hilariously cornball video and an incredibly catchy song, which actually sounds like two catchy songs smashed into one, although the video is more than double the laughs for its melodrama. So, one of the most iconic... Read More
