Friday Night Videos

Well friends, I don't know how long I'll be able to keep the Friday Night Videos feature going here. Four consecutive songs I hunted up on YouTube had either been deleted or "Embedding disabled by request." Sigh. At least Queen gets it. YouTube serves the same purpose as MTV and Friday Night Videos did back in the day--that is, it's a promotional platform for music to encourage more sales. Videos are a 4 minute commercial for a song in particular, and albums in general (and considering the music selection I feature here, Greatest Hits collections). Fortunately, Queen understands that exposure is a good thing, which is why the brilliantly skewed "Fat Bottomed Girls" is the featured song today. Freddie Mercury could preen like some unholy fusion of Mick Jagger and Tim Curry, and rocked like no other. Enjoy!

Previously on Friday Night Videos... Elton John.
