Inspired by an entry at OMG Blog, I thought I'd take a look at the video clip for Wilson Phillips' 1990 blockbuster hit "Hold On". Remember it? Of course you do! It was only the biggest song in the history of the world (or, for just 1990). I love this song so much. I remember back in 1990 (when I was 5/6) I was addicted to this song so much. I believe I had it on cassette tape and I taped the video onto a VHS tape just so I could watch it over and over again too. It was amazing.
Only watching the video now do I realise that Chynna Phillips was really lipsyncing the hell out of it (so fierce!) and watching the video now I have the jokes about Carnie Wilson in my brain from over the last 17 years. At the time it didn't occur to me that she looks sort of out of place at the beach in an all black number, but oh well.
The very best bit (and there were many many great bits) in Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle! was the "Hold On" singalong sequence that aped the "Bohemian Rhapsody" sequence from Wayne's World. Man, why wasn't Harold & Kumar a hit? It was hilarious!!
I blame the video for "Hold On" as well as the video for Julian Lennon's "Salt Water" (out around the same time) with starting my still-going obsession with the American landscape. All those trees and mountains and such. Lord knows why, but oh well.
