LEAVE! GET OUT! Find Out Why Boys Stink In The Video You Deserve

October 19th, 2020

If you were listening to pop radio at all at the beginning of the 2000s, you couldn’t help but escape an incredibly catchy and soulfully sung hit with a defiant chorus of “Get out! Right now! It’s the end of you and me! It’s too late, and I can’t wait for you to be gone!” My girlfriend at the time had a pre-teen younger sister who we used to babysit from time to time, and take to the fair and mini-golfing and stuff like that, and whenever this song would come on the radio, she’d want us to jam the volume to the max. Which, you know, when you’ve got... Read More

And I Ran… I Ran To The Video You Deserve

October 12th, 2020

If you want to run, run so far away, from the dreariness of Mondays, then The Video You Deserve is for you. Every Monday, we give you a fun, cheesy video to begin your week, and this week’s video and song is one of the most iconic of the ’80s and features one of the most iconic haircuts and lead singers of the decade. Although A Flock of Seagulls’ reign on the charts was relatively short — they had their biggest hits in just a two year span between 1982 and 1984 — the band’s futuristic image and spacey, trippy videos, made a huge impact on the visuals of early... Read More

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

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.

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.

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
