Video dissection (Part 1): Ratt

I love old crappy music videos. In fact, crappy’s not the word. These vids are great just, at times, a little misguided, at others baffling and often reveal things about the artists that I’m surprised people didn’t pick up on when they first came out.

First up in what I hope will be a regular series of posts if I can find the time to do them is a little dissection of some of my favs

Ratt – Round & Round

There’s not much I can say about this one, it’s amazing. An absolutely top tune with a video to match. Don’t really know what’s going on but it invovles a load of people dressed up having some dinner and Ratt looking totally awesome in a loft.

Finest moments

You should probably watch this one in high quality on YouTube, it’s worth it

Ratt – Round & Round

Ratt – Lay It Down

Another Ratt video, another party. Awesome song and a little beyond generic vid. I’m pretty sure that this tune came out on a wicked rat shaped 7″ picture disc which, sadly, I have yet to win on eBay.

Finest moments

Ratt – Back For More

Not as great a tune but the vid makes up for it. Big stuff
