Stepping up to part 25 of my youtube countdown, we visit some old friends reuniting in the 1980s. George Harrison, Elton John, Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, Jeff Lynn from ELO, and even Phil Collins all got together to play George’s legendary White Album classic, While My Guitar Gently Weeps. Not only does this concert take place in the 80s, the song is incredibly “80s-ified” featuring very synthy digital sounding guitars, and booming hollow drums and the like. Also, everyone is dressed to remind you its the 80s, especially Eric, in his horrible, yet rad checkerboard jacket over his electric yellow shirt. Plus, you can’t ignore the scumbag 80s mullets everyone has too, legendary. Still, despite the washed-upedness of everything, this is still incredible and you should watch it over and over, especially for the awesome dueling guitar scenario between George and Eric. Fabulous. Also, what the hell is up with Ringo’s face in this video? It looks like he just mugged 5 people on the way to the concert hall.
