'80s music and rollerskating? This video is the perfect Valentine's Day gift



Wuench Beat Me to It Week continues with us revisiting the Paisley Underground and the band that led the way in that LA music scene: The Three O'Clock. The Paisley Underground was mainly influenced by the Psychedelic bands of the '60s, both in their look and sound. Tight, swirling, slightly trippy tunes were the hallmark of the scene.

Today's song is the opening track of their 1985 album ‘Arrive Without Traveling.' The video for ‘Her Head's Revolving' is set in a skating rink with The Three O'Clock providing music for the skaters. And, although I'm sure he heard this a lot in those days, lead singer Michael Quercio looks and sounds much, much younger than any 22-year-old should look and sound.  

You might notice that this song sounds very much as though it could have been produced by The Bangles. That's not surprising as The Bangles also came from that same Paisley Underground.
