I love some of the old classic songs and I love looking for the old videos for them. Lots of times when you google an old song you get a video that it not quite original. I love hunting down videos that are more close to the original, preferably ones that show the band singing without all the effects or ones that are the music without the performance. To me it brings the listener much loser to the song.

Got any oldies to add?

I'll start. Oak ridge Boys, Leaving Louisiana In The Broad Daylight. 1979.



One of my favorite bands growing up was Jay And The Americans, so here is one of my favorite songs.



And the classic American Band...The Beach Boys



I love these guys... Jan And Dean.

My friend, I’ll see your Oak Ridge Boys and raise you an Emmylou Harris. BTW, the song is one of Rodney Crowell’s who was in The Hot Band back then.

She was only 14 when she sang this. This video is a classic. I could dance much better than those folks!

This song is not as old as the others in this thread, so you may not consider it a classic, but I've always found the song very haunting. The song is from the early 80s, but this version of the video is from a movie of the early 90s. Plus, it has the incomparable Jennifer Connelly, so that makes it a worthwhile watch.

TMats, that was excellent! I am a fan of Emmylou Harris but I don't think I have ever heard that. I kind of like it better. It has a 'haunting' quality, not so much a 'fun' quality like the Oak Ridge Boys has. Good listen.

Keep them coming, I grew up on 50's and 60's music, I don't think I head a "modern" song until 1984 when I bought a Twisted Sister tape and played "We're Not Gonna Take It" over and over. I then realized modern music sucked and went back to my Beach Boys and Jay And The Americans lol.

^^^
And the Box Tops. Never knew their name, but I know the songs.

Monkey, the hair in that video....was epic. Bravo, just bravo..

Here is one that reminds me of a little pizza parlor back home. The old Venus Cafe had an autographed picture of Tom jones hanging behind the bar, and when I was old enough I drank a beer there. I remember that picture, and I remember my beer.

Tom Jones isn't the original, but I love this song just the same.



And because I like originality, here is Porter Wagoner.

And now for something a little different, the classic Nine Pound Hammer, performed by the Tony Rice Jam, with the peerless Rice on flat pick guitar, Sam Bush on mandolin, Mark O'Connor on fiddle, and a very young Jerry Douglas on Dobro.

One of my favorites from the early 1960s, Sam Cooke had one of the purest voices I've ever heard. It's too bad he left us so young.

Emmylou had some really nice backup on that album, including Albert Lee, James Burton, Willie Nelson, and Ricky Skaggs.
