Life in the 80s: Video “Nothing Bad Ever Happens to Me” by Oingo Boingo

Nothing-bad-ever-happens-to-me

I've been getting back into Oingo Boingo again lately. I was a huge fan back in the day and actually was fortunate to have gone to quite a few concerts. One of the strangest was at the Air Force Academy – but that's a whole other story :^)

Here is a fun song from album Good For Your Soul called "Nothing Bad Ever Happens To Me". The video is realy great, and actually reminds me a bit of some of some the Die Antwoord videos/film. I wonder if Oingo Boingo was a source of inspiration?

I also think the lyrics in this song hold up when considering how people present sanitized versions of their lives on Facebook.

Anyway… here is the video http://youtu.be/qpjHW4mr6qo
