(Jubilee Guilty Pleasure!) Video of the Moment #832: Starship

By on Tuesday, 5th June 2012 at 4:00 pm

Editor’s note: do not adjust your screen. Yes, we’re airing some of our (and some of your!) favourite song guilty pleasures in video form this Jubilee weekend. The bands were featuring are largely not the kind we write about here on TGTF, but we wanted to do something new and cool over this 4-day weekend. Come along for the crazy ride and enjoy.

Ever wondered how a city gets built on rock ‘n’ roll? I’m not being facetious, this was actually the subject of a song in 1985 by Starship, a relatively short-lived offshoot of the ’60s’ Jefferson Airplane and ensuing ’70s band Jefferson Starship. Thanks to Ben for the suggestion. Evidently, not at all influential music magazine Blender put this on their Top ’50 Most Awesomely Bad Songs Ever’ but the link to Blender’s Web site is broken. That’s suspect…
