In Keeping with Winter Olympics Fee-Vah!

Actually, in keeping with my usual Saturday M.O.- that is, posting a music video (usually) from the 1980s...

Since the Winter Olympics is taking place in Vancouver, and many of the events are of an Alpine (for lack of a better term) nature, I present to you the video for Canadian duo Big Bam Boo's 1988 tune Fell Off a Mountain, a title which seems to be an apt characterization of ski jumping:

The sprightly, clever song has a retro feel, which is captured well in the video. It's a piece of pure pop bliss that certainly deserves wider exposure.

The word is "CanCon", Canadian content.

There are quotas, y'see, and a whole bunch of Canadian acts who would otherwise starve are subsidized with radio play and videos and such.
