Julie Brown first popped up on my radar when she submitted "Girl Fight Tonight" to KKBQ's song parody contest back in the mid-80s. By the time I got to college, she'd had her motion picture debut in "Earth Girls are Easy." The movie's relentlessly silly, but the standout scene is her video for "'Cause I'm a Blonde," which has nothing to do with anything else in the film and seems just an excuse to film a video at the movie studio's expense. It's cheesy and goofy as heck. My favorite local college band, Dr. Love and the Erogenous Zones, did a fun cover of it back in the day. That's about all I got, other than the standard "Summer is almost here, so that means pool and beach time!"

C.W. McCall is best known for his trucker songs, but "Comin' Back for More" stands well apart from that traditional wheelhouse. The style is the same, but the subject matter is out there. And this is one of those videos you just can't unsee.
