• They’re sincere about their music & the lyrics, which I wholly appreciate, seeing as how I’m equally sincere in my own musical endeavors. (I’m taking voice lessons to overcome my anxieties in this regard.) Still…it’s retro enough to be rather…um…campy, don’t you think? πŸ™‚

  1. I was giggling–He is like a Mountie; he always gets his man.

    He loves me when I waste my time writing silly songs –yes, I’d say there’s a bit of camp in that πŸ™‚

  2. I think the most interesting — and amusing — part of this for me was the odd vocal stylings of the lead singer. I am not even sure how to describe the way he delivers the lyrics, but the word “staccato” comes to mind. Thanks for posting this, Melodye! — PL

    • Staccato is perfect. Herky-jerky works almost as well.

      It’s unsettling, at least for me. I don’t THINK he’s trying for parody. I suspect he’s truly sincere. But to my mind, his over-the-top lyrics (and vocal stylings) negate that. Like an overexuberant suitor, amiright?

      • Having never had an overexuberant suitor (although it is possible I have BEEN one), I’m not sure I am qualified to answer that. But I think I grasp what you mean.

        I wonder if any of the people in the video continued on in the world of music… what might they be doing today, and what do they now think of this effort of theirs? Are they proud? Chagrined? Bemused? — PL

  3. “Vader is My Friend”

    Well, that was easy. Thanks, Google!

    I think the original is (unintentionally) funnier, but this is fairly nifty. — PL
