I’ve had this song stuck in my head for about two weeks now. Its music video has a rather bizarre sense of morality.

Man reminisces. He met woman (Silk Spectre!). Drives irresponsibly with her in car. Parties with her. Cheats on her with her roommate (Felicity!) gets caught. Woman finds new guy who treats her well. Man comes back crawling. Realizes that she slept with someone else. Hypocritically goes ballistic. Chases her away. Misses her.

Inexplicably, we’re supposed to feel sorry for the man in this tale. Because he will love her always. Except when Felicity is in the room. And except when she falls for somebody that treats her nice after his own infidelity. Always. Almost. Poor guy.

    This video has haunted me ever since I first saw it…good grief, I can’t remember how long ago.

    Why? Not because I felt sorry at all for the lousy cheating bastard, but because I felt sorry for the woman he treated like crap.

    I hope she later left him a voice-message or two saying how she’d and the new guy had had “the best sex ever, loser!” 🙂

    It is worth noting that, much like Alicia Silverstone and Aerosmith, Felicity was pre-Felicity when this video came out.

    Also, betraying my state, I find both Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen to be totally overrated.
