Everclear Takes Us Back with “AM Radio”–Laura’s Feel Good Song of the Day [VIDEO]

Maybe I’m just a little too young to fully appreciate this song, being that I was born in 1980 and never really had the chance to experience the 1970′s.  However, Everclear’s “AM Radio” is a great tribute to the simpler times of our youth.  It doesn’t matter if you grew up in the 50′s, 60′s, 70′s, or 80′s, sometimes we all wish we could go back.

A few fun facts about the song from songfacts.com:

  • The video is a tribute to ’70s pop culture. It features the band in scenes from The Brady Bunch, as a Mr. Potato Head doll, and as members of KISS. They spent about $250,000 for the rights to use the images.
  • The video originally contained a scene where Alexakis burst through a wall as the Kool-Aid man. It was cut when the Kool-Aid people decided not to let them use it.
  • This samples “Mr. Big Stuff” a 1970 hit by Jean Knight which was a staple on AM Radio.
  • The vocals are processed to sound like they would be coming from an AM radio station. With limited bandwidth, AM radio doesn’t transmit a lot of bass.
