Subject: When ZZ Top Saves The Day

Written By: KKay on 09/15/07 at 8:37 am

Seems like in almost any decade, some young man or woman has romantic issues or gets pushed around by bullies and then.....

ZZRrrrooooommmmm...enter our heroes, ZZ Top and a car full of sexy make-over girls.

I personally love the video where the cute little boy that works in the diner is being harassed by the hoodlums; and the girl from the shoe store in the glasses can't seem to get her lunch order in.  Then, the guys bring in the stylists and the girl gets decked out in a cool, lavender Olivia Newton John outfit and saves the boy from his dead end job.


Talk about your favorite ZZ Top video or, what you wish they could do for you.

"Legs" is  a great video  8)

"Gimme All Your Lovin", with the young man fantazing about women at the gas station and the campy "Sleeping Bag".

Gimme all your lovin' is a great one.  The one I described above is "Legs"...I was cracking up.  They really help people out; more than the Red Cross.  Maybe we can send them in for hurricaine relief.

Great videos I loved them too, they remind me of college. The pub across the road had a video jukebox and we used to play them a lot.

I like the video Legs but I must admit that it really sends a bad message if you ask me. You have to be in the latest fashion and show some skin in order to get respect instead of being who you are.

Yup-exactly. Personally, I don't think it is a good message to send-especially to young girls.

Even though I'm something of a ZZ fan, I'm not sure I totally agree about them really being superstars beyond a couple years. I see them as being classic rock that was slightly poppified for the MTV era. The caricaturized image of theirs which I think you're referring to (driving their restored hot rod, girls in their videos, and being superheroes in a sense) was like 1983-1986 from what I know about that time.

They had something of a comeback when they did "Doubleback" for Back to the Future III in 1990, and had a Greatest Hits album a little later. When I started watching videos, they were around the tail end of their popularity. VH1 still played their older stuff alot too.


That being said, I pretty much like the whole Afterburner album, but "Gimmie All Your Lovin" and "Legs" are the videos I know the best.

"Legs" was my favorite.  Basically it was John Waters goes to Texas!
:D

What could they do for me?  Get me laid.  What else?

In the '80s whether it was Motley Crue or Van Halen it was the getting busy in the video.  When ZZ Top started making videos, they said, "What are we going to do? we look like Jim Henson creations!"  So they took on the role of biker Cupids!
:P

Even at my horniest, and as hot as the ZZ Top video babes are, I'd have taken the 1933 Ford coupe over all three of 'em at once.  Might have had to think about it... but the babes will get older.  The only thing that'll happen to the Eliminator is that it'll grow wings and get Afterburners, and will even survive the Recycler.
