Beats pickin' cotton & waitin' to be forgotten

Do you have a favorite song on a record you want to post on YouTube, but it doesn't have a video? Well, don't let that stop you - just videotape the playing record and post that!

There are a lot of people who do just this, and God love 'em for it - there's no way humanly possible that I ever would have learned about the Popular Five's "Baby I Got It" if someone didn't take this route.

This type of "video" reminds me of the Replacements' song "Bastards of Young." It's nothing but a speaker for almost four minutes. Not only does it force you to listen to those great lyrics, it effortlessly makes any other artists who attempt to Produce a Visual Statement look close to ridiculous.
