    From the forthcoming I Want My MTV: The Uncensored Story of the Music Video Revolution comes this small preview courtesy of our friends at Amazon.com:

    Billy Squier, “Rock Me Tonite” (1984)
    There are only two videos which merit their own chapters in “I Want My MTV,” and this is one. Squier was a hard-rock superstar before he released this video, which he describes as “diabolical.” Here’s the plot: Squier wakes up in a bed of silk sheets, puts on white drawstring pants, skips around his bedroom, grinds on the floor, rips off his t-shirt, then puts on a pink tank top, and collapses back on his silk sheets. Squier blames this video for ending his reign on the rock charts.

    funny... a few months back, driving home from covering high school hoops tourney, 2am and exhausted, Prancing Billy came on the radio. Turned it up and laughed my ass off the rest of the one-hour drive home, rejuvenated.

    Yes, Prancing Billy probably saved my life.
