The kids decided they wanted to go through my record collection Saturday night. They are interested in how we lived in ancient times. They seem to be amazed that music will play through a needle. They are also not impressed at how short albums are considering they can play hours of MP3’s on their players.
One album I came across was “Lawyers in Love” by Jackson Browne. I bought it in 1983 and I’m guessing I used birthday money to buy it since, being 10 years old, I wasn’t employed at the time. The album cover always stood out to me. It also makes me realize how much of the “personality” of albums that we have lost without them.
The title song was always one of my favorites and I wanted to embed the video here from YouTube but, to my dismay, there were only two uploads of the song. One was just the song with a blank screen and the other was the video with someone doing karaoke and farting in the background. How lovely. I decided I had to correct this injustice against Jackson Browne fans everywhere so I downloaded the video and mixed the original music back with it. It took a while to get the timing right but I finally got it extremely close.
So, turn up those laptop speakers and enjoy the somewhat odd video for “Lawyers in Love” while I go hide from the copyright police.
