Movie Reviews

The Hits, the Videos... Finally!!!
Runway Mobile Sound | Iowa United States | 01/31/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Santa gave me a belated Christmas gift, the releasing of Video Hits was a treat for this admittededly MAJOR fan of Billy Squier.

The first three videos appear to be from the now out of print VHS copy of "Live In the Dark," with the DVD releasal still available as of this writing. Because these three videos appear to be from the "Live In the Dark" VHS/DVD, losing one star was justified. However, the other videos more than make up for the loss of additional stars.

Those first three videos include from the "Don't Say No" album:

1. The Stroke
2. In The Dark
3. My Kinda Lover

Actual video releases of 4 through 6 included on this DVD are:

4. Everybody Wants You
5. Rock Me Tonight
6. Love Is The Hero

"Everybody Wants You" is Billy's video that features Andy Warhol's cover illustration as well as Billy and the band playing the song in the video. If you were a neon loving 80's child, this video is hard to forget if you were a Squier fan.

"Rock Me Tonight" are sure to provide smiles for fans like myself who enjoyed seeing Billy playing and moving around in a loft like apartment with a bed as center stage, playing the pink guitar. Of course you get to see the boys of Billy's band and the late Bobby Chouinard having a little fun with Billy.

I really loved the song "Love Is the Hero" when I first heard it. This song could stand on its own without help of a video, however a video was made and saw very limited MTV airplay I'm told. With the Twin Towers shown at the very beginning (and end), spectacular views of the New York City skyline while Billy is being shot in black & white tape playing on a roof top, curved lines of a staircase leading you further into the music makes one wonder where has the art in making videos gone? This video makes this purchase a must for any Squier fan due to the very limited airplay, architectural and aerial elements, and of course the song itself is very impressive and can stand on its own.

A true Squier fan may be left wondering if there are other videos in a vault someplace. Surely, the music on "Enough Is Enough" "Tell the Truth" & "Creatures of Habit" each deserved a video budget as well. This fan, can only hope, pray and wish Santa will deliver more goodies from any Squier video vaults that may exist.

"I love the music from the 70's and 80's. Billy Squier's music is great and I enjoyed the videos. I recommend it for any fans of classic rock."
