The Original “Got My Mind Set on You” Video

I once bonded with a new friend over the fact that we were probably the only two people who remembered that George Harrison’s fantastic comeback single “Got My Mind Set On You” had an original, little-seen music video that was pulled in favor of the one of Harrison sitting in a chair surrounded by singing, mounted animal heads.

Okay, so the original was kind of nondescript – a teenage couple flirts while playing midway games. And one of them is Alexis Denisof, who would go on to play Wesley Windham Price on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

From the middle of nowhere in the Pacific Northwest, I contribute to the Retroist, write for trivia publications, and blog about music in a humorous fashion. I feel about "Back to the Future" the way you feel about "Star Wars." Also, I'm married and have a child (sorry ladies, orphans).
