Friday Video – The Godfathers, “Birth School Work Death”

Let’s celebrate the fact that we’ve seen the back of another black day…by not moping about it. I love Depeche Mode and all, but it’s Friday. Time to enjoy life, not survive it.

In the summer of 1988, with those danceteria types dominating the burgeoning modern rock scene, the Godfathers made an instant, indelible impression. Dressed in business suits (and occasionally leather) with nary a synthesizer to be heard for miles, and armed with the best chain gang chorus ever, the Godfathers just oozed cool. And if you can find four other words that describe life more succinctly, we’d love to hear them.

And listen to that sing-speak voice of Peter Coyne. Beats Lou Reed’s all to hell. We’re still trying to figure out just what Michael Caine movie he’s referring to, though. Happy Friday, everyone.
