Back in the 1980s, in the early days of MTV and the music video, there was an obscure one-hit wonder that was actually a novelty song from the comedy rock team of Barnes and Barnes. The song/video is called Fish Heads and it is all about what fish can do and what fish cannot do.
The video was directed by Bill Paxton in 1980 and it first aired on NBC’s Saturday Night Live in December 1980. This is undoubtedly the strangest music video to ever appear on MTV – when they played real music. Remember that if you can. Anyway, enjoy and admire the wackiness! Give it a second, it starts out slow.
