music history

This is a pretty interesting music video

Had this song in my head so I looked it up. "Young Girl" by Gary Puckett and the Union Gap. This 1968 clip is one of those strange, fun early music videos when there were a) no production budgets and b) absolutely no rules about what makes a music video.

To begin with, the subject of the song is a guy's love for an underage girl, which is creepy enough, but the video holds its own in terms of strange and weird--these are actual stills from the video! 

I love that the band has set up in this dilapidated barn. Reminds me of another classic entry in the barn-themed music video canon, Badfinger's "No Matter What". Maybe I have a theme for my next video!?
