馃槩 We lost a DEVO vid!

Looking back as the OP....
Just a recollection from H.S. during this time in the 1980's and how I remember these DEVO videos on early MTV.
We had to take 1-year of swim classes [Beginner/Advanced Life Guard] to graduate H.S. Crazy eh? To think they would make something like that mandatory nowadays!
I got all A+'s in certs .. but I had the most A-hole teacher / coach ever! but I'll tell you what ..it save my life a few times. Glad I did have him as a teacher / coach!

When I hear and see these videos it brings me back to early '80's H.S. swim classes ..Weird DEVO connection.

Did anyone else have to take swimming for 1-year for H.S. graduation requirement?
no, but I did have to write an essay , no idea what on, in high school English
thinking it was 10th or 11th grade, and somehow I managed to tie some of the lyrics from Jocko Hom0 into the essay

got props from the teacher that graded it, (this would have been ~1979)
Classic DEVO .. Deep meaning 馃槈

The deleted video had all the Devo references in cartoons, the only ones I could find elsewhere were the Family Guy and Futurama one

1979! ...That's when I first heard of DEVO [Their cover of "I can't get no satisfaction"]

Do you remember on what subject ?? Just curious Lyman. 1979 was a crazy year.. High inflation! Our country was falling apart under Carter.. 馃 hmmmmm...........

But yeah.. at my H.S. in the 1980's it was a requirement you did [1] year of swimming and life guard to graduate. I had it 1st hour too the entire year!

Another classic DEVO video ..way ahead of the times....

yeah ... its happens.
Thought this was interesting, its a cover of "Beautiful World" by the British synth-pop band Information Society, with Gerald Casale providing vocals.

As an aside, run away from anything by Dev2.0, its basically Devo meets Kidz Bop.

You have been warned.
and the demo version

Nowadays, I don't open videos 'gifted', principally off point & with which I'm unfamiliar.
Other than that...

Lost link

:oops:
I remember when this video premiered on MTV [1981] ..Huge rotation cuz of the lack of music videos available back then.

Same one used in Square Pegs

Here's the 1080P version. The YT poster actually did a good job remastering it. Looks acceptable on my 82" Samsung
Enjoy...
