Fortunately for the Limousines, In-ter-net has the same amount of syllables as Ra-d-io, as this song, the Limousines response to the very first video on MTV, “Video Killed the Radio Star” from the Buggles, had to be written. It’s catchy for sure, and when I first put it on my iPod and played it in my car, I replayed it a couple of times, and it made me have to watch out I didn’t get myself pulled over, always a good sign.
I’m a little unsure about the video though; it’s a bit over the top, complete with the band rocking out post-apocalyptic style, kids escaping zombies (presumably rock and roll coming back to life – or maybe it’s all those dead video stars?) chase scenes, and zombie suicide scenes…a little much. But see what you think. With lines like, “Singing Glory Days are gone, but everything’s ok, ‘cause we still love our sex and drugs, just like the good old days”, and electrified disco beats, you’ll be noddin’ your head in no time.
The kids are disco dancing; they’re tired of rock n’ roll
Don’t bother telling them that drum machine ain’t got no soul
