>T.S.D.H.A.V. (THIS SONG DON’T HAVE A VIDEO) It does now, more or less, though part of Loudon Wainwright Ill’s ironic-sardonic-quixotic video includes a blank screen and another part focuses on his banjo sitting alone in a chair. The philosophical theme is stated by the lines, “How’m I gonna get it/ Is probably what you’re thinkin’/ Your ears ain’t tuned to singin’/ Without watching lip-syn-chin’.” As Wainwright (hereby touting a cut off his Therapy album) points out, the video includes neither midgets nor cleavage, and the total cost of producing it might have run into three figures, assuming the star bought new jeans for the taping.
