“Behind the Wall of Sleep” – The Smithereens

A great song from the days spent with my friends driving around aimlessly on Friday and Saturday nights looking for a party that: 1) 80% of the time never existed; 2) 20% of the time actually existed, but could never be found; 3) 10% of the time, was found, but already broken up by the police / parents returning early; 4) 5% of time, was still going on, but all the beer was gone; and 5) that magic 1% of the time when everything coalesced perfectly … at least until 9:30 pm when the police came to break things up, parents came home, and/or the beer ran out.

I love this song, but yikes, the accompanying video is BEYOND dorky. And don’t try to make logic of my math either.
