    Default Can you identify the video?

    Hello, all - am hoping you can assist - in a few documentaries about VH, they occasionally show little tiny snippets of what I assume to be a VH (with Sammy) music video but, as the narrative is recorded over the top, I don't know which tune it could be.

    The clips show a gloriously sunny day (by the beach I think) outside a timber house. Sammy is using an enormous mobile telephone (1980s brick style!) and a person (looks very much like Eddie) pokes his head out of the window.

    That's all I can tell you - I shall try to find the relevant documentary - but, believe me, the snippets are over so quickly that if you blink you'll miss them.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    That's from an unreleased VH track called "Big Telephone." Sammy wrote the lyrics to it during the OU812 tour.

    If I remember correctly, the lyrics went:

    Baby, baby, baby,
    Oooh, yeah!
    Grab my big telephone and give me a ring
    Oooh baby,
    Baby yeah,
    Whoa! Big telephone! Biggest you've ever seen!
    Baby, baby, baby,
    Yeah, baby, whoa!
    Raise my antenna, baby!
    Oooh yeah,
    Baby, baby, whoa!
    Oooh, baby, baby, yeah, oooh!
    baby, baby!







    Don't read this.

    Actually, you're not quite accurate with your lyrics - you forgot the "Hooomph!" that Sammy always does at the start of his songs. Tssk.

    Also, Brew - just wondering - are the houses featured at the start Sam's and Ed's own homes as they do mention having once lived next door to each another (in Malibu, I think?) in various books / interviews. Cheers!

    No problem. It was the "?" mark in your post that made me realize what you were talking about. Every clue helps!
    Just go for it!

    Nah. The house on the left is Bretts beach house and the one on the right is OLO's summer home. Actually, I have no clue. I don't stalk their homes etc... I just stalk their music.
    Just go for it!

    Yes they are Sam and Eddie's malibu houses, actually the Mike scene was filmed in Eddie's house.

    Thanks, Ed-a-holic. I did wonder - and it's nice to have a visual picture to go with the text I've read.

    I wonder who that extremely cool dog belonged to. VERY cool dog.

    I wonder if Brett and OLO are aware you're revealing their locations!

    No, I didn't imagine you 'stalked' their homes - I was just curious. I wouldn't have thought that Sam and Ed live there any longer - can you imagine the pair of them sharing a neighbourly chat over the fence nowadays???
