No, I'm not talking about my first time with a woman (I'm still awaiting that fateful event). I'm talking about my first time seeing a music video...ever. Or at least the first video I remember seeing. And boy, was it a doozy. Now, for the most part, nobody questions the Beatles' greatness as a cohesive musical unit. However, some of their individual musical (mis)adventures may lead the listener to believe that the whole was quite a bit greater than the sum of its respective parts. This argument could be made about George Harrison's 1987 album "Cloud 9." And although it could be made, I would not make it. I liked the album and I loved this video. It had everything I want in a video: back flips and dancing furniture. I am proud to say that George Harrison and a singing taxidermic boar head accompanied me on one of the landmark moments in my musical development. I dedicate this to tonight's dream girl, the one whose glazed over eyes I will peer deep into come barclose, and slur the words "I've got my mind set on you."
