Jeff Reger takes us back a few decades this week in his cover story on musicians/songwriters/Georgetown professors Walter Egan and Bill Danoff. In case you haven’t read the cover and are wondering who Egan and Danoff are, no worries: just let YouTube fill you in (and then go read the cover).
Egan’s hit 1978 single “Magnet and Steel” was produced by Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac and went on to sell over a million copies. In the video, Egan is rolling six deep and sporting an outfit that could only be described as transplendent (or something).
This next song, written by Danoff, thanks largely to Will Farrell and Mitchell Hurtwitz, needs little introduction. Danoff is the lead singer in the video, wearing a black tux and a pretty boss ‘do.
I feel like I’d be remiss if I didn’t post either an Arrested Development or Anchorman video along with this. (Unfortunately, videos of Michael and Maeby’s tender duet are in short supply on the interweb.) Video after the jump.
