The thing I liked about music video television is the act of discovery. Yes, sometime it is lame, but sometimes it could be magical. I was sitting in front of the TV one day in the 1980s when Taco’s Puttin’ on the Ritz came one. I had heard the song before in older movies and of course in Young Frankenstein, but no way did I ever expect it to “updated”. It is catchy and odd and the music video was heavily played Back then and now I scratched my head and wonder at how this could be so successful, but then I watch a few minutes and start smiling.
