Saying that I love music videos is an understatement. Saying that I love seeing similarities in different music videos is even more of an understatement.
I. Love. That. Stuff.
With that being said... I had the song "You Should Be Mine (The Woo Woo Song)" by Jeffrey Osbourne stuck in my head today. It's a sweet R&B song from 1986 with a catchy chorus and melody. The music video is cute too:
So, I'm watching the music video and I'm saying to myself, "Huh. Guy with band... nice. Singing in an empty bar-type place... nice. Random young couple... nice. Bartender lady not paying attention to what's around her... Wait. I've seen this somewhere before."
It took me a little bit, but I finally remembered that the music video for "When It's Love" by Van Halen has the exact same premise as the music video for "You Should Be Mine." Check it out below:
Two totally different songs, two years apart, with two really similar music videos. I love it.
