Tonight, we present “Scrooge.”
In the two years since we last enjoyed watching George Thorogood and the Destroyers frolicking on the MTV set in 1985, that clip has been removed from YouTube. It was the one with John Lee Hooker as Santa, the one with Martha Quinn dancing with Santa, and the one with Mark Goodman getting a nice long smooch from a cutie under the mistletoe. Bummer.
Sorry about that? Oh, come on. Guess we don’t want new generations to enjoy a classic.
On to Billy Squier, then! Let’s watch him lip-sync it with the MTV VJs and crew. As always, the question remains: Nina Blackwood or Martha Quinn?
Yeah, this CD is still around, and it’s still one of the best compilations. I saw it at Barnes & Noble earlier this month.
