this meant nothing to me when I bought the album, that was a long time ago and things change over time,
"This is the day your life will surely change..." not always for the better, as recent experience has shown me. I watched a plane fly across the clear blue sky, today, on landing approach to Ontario airport in California, and thought of this song.
"This is the Day," three decades later; still holds up. Thank you Wogaim; and 'thethe, of course. 2-Thumbs way up, too. ;-)
stupid spell check and me. SiriusXM is now in my phones vocabulary
thank you Richard Blade, dj for Sirius Xmas first wave, for turning me onto this song. I owe you big time. May God continue to bless you.
An all time favorite of mine. Timeless in its perfection. And so few ever heard of the.band, yes one person, especially those in the mainstream of musical tastes.
Best song from the 80's. Had the CASSETTE of this :) The accordian makes it.
This was one of my favorite songs from the 80's. One of my best friends in my fraternity John Hilde introduced it to me. I haven't seen or heard from either him or this song in years. Nice memories.
Yup, this is the day. The storm has passed. The sky is still dark but it's ok cause this is the day when things began to get better...
As someone said years ago on this thread this song is upliting or depressing depending on your mood. In my 20s it was a song of hope in my thirties a song of despair and this morning in my forties is a happy sing a long as I prepare to tick things off my to do list because I did go to bed last night and did not stay up watching my eyes turn red.
+Rachael Bean I read your comment.
One of the best songs that came out of the 80s that you didn't even knew existed.
Empire Records, thanks for this.
Love this song! Tomorrow is the day ;)
old school in da house
precursor to tim and eric awesome show? this video is so goofy. i've been thinking this for years but just now got a youtube account.
Brutal esta musica
I didn't know that Fred Armisen was the front man of The The! Damn, he sure does a lot.
+Gian Misso hardy har har
Lol. Im moving to portland in a few months !
Whats your name? +LonelyFanaticN
The accordion player's name is Paul Wickens, a.k.a. Wix
+LonelyFanaticN Thank you so so much. I was wondering for a long time, but took no action. I didn't feel like wikipediaing it i guess. Who's that guy playing the accordion in the background? I aspire to be like him one day.
ano 70 e 80 nunca mais haverá igual
Cracking Albums so much Talent
This song makes me feel the urgence of acting!
Matt Johnson couldn't get rid of that stalking accordion player. I'm glad to see so many people remember this classic.
CLASSIC THANKS FOR POSTING!
what band is this?
+John Galt LOL I even googled it to make sure :D thanks
was this shot in Brighton?
Bake and Destroy!
Fresh Meat brought me here...makes me feel nostalgic about growing up in the 80's...
Fresh Meat !
love this pice Finn5Fejl
need more The The on TVclip
nice b8 m8
I have the cassette - NYC - Village Records - it was playing while I shopped. Yes, 2 p's in shopped - I checked.
ah yes i re-found this song!!!! :D
DAMIT! My heart broke twice in a week!
if you think this is dreary, i have a feeling you'll just love joy division. that, or you seriously misunderstand music.
such an awesome song of that era......one of my all time fav picks
Bake AND Destroy!!! :D
this is such a great song you forget how terrible the production is - it's as good as the re-recorded version thats polished to perfection
Yeah! I love your clip and your voice is so much better...Oh that's right you are nobody and have done fuck all for the pop charts. STFU
it doesn't get much better
No way Dale. The song is FANTASTIC... as for the video... Well...
sorry folks, I think this is HORRIBLE !! Depressing, Sad, my 9 year old could direct a better video than this and the singing is dreary.
Like si llegaste a este vídeo por que viste el Baker - Bake and destroy ._.
mlq ...sem duvida eram baladas magicas...nossa quantas lembramças boas
Not for when it was recorded ( This version ) but obviously "Live"
theme song end of the movie Empire Records: tvclip.biz/video/VjJv5oWvohE/video.html
Such a beautiful song, just the right side of melancholy. xx
nossa mano esse som é muito loko daora
This is the day my music should be heard. Check out my channel! Thanks for the upload. Great artist.
I like the The and I like this song cuz its Polka Rock as it features an accordian.
Paul “Wix” Wickens, playing the accordion!!! Fantastic
Useless trivia: this song is on the OST of a portuguese film called O Sangue (The Blood) which happens to be one of my favourites. But I loved this song long before that movie came out.
tempo de Contra Mão no Tatuapé ...
This takes me back to good old days they don't make songs like this anymore
Those romantic 80s did it all.
screw cassette, i got the vinyl :P
Another blue screen thing - out of the blue? Thanks for uploading this.
Bons tempos!!!!! NUNCA MAIS!!!
Fuckin classic, shouts to my dad for putting me onto this
Umm.... dubstep sucks
I had no idea this song was so old ! The "alternative radio" I listened to played it so much I assumed it came out in the early 90s. I wonder why it was so popular years after. I know The The had a song on Reality Bites, it may have something to do with it. Its a timeless classic, regardless.
Holy shit, this vid's been on TVclip for seven years this week. It was in some commercial about six years ago, and I watched this very video when I figured out the artist and song
empire recerds :D
it's weird seeing him with lots of hair
you could have done anything, that you wanted...and all your friends and family think that you're lucky, but the side of you they never see is when you're left alone with the memories that hold your life together....
Why do I keep coming back to this video? BONUS DRAGONS!!!!!
A gas tank frame
now thats cool
When will it change???? Come on tell us!
Anyone know if they had johnny marr for this song?
Loved this on empire records the movie
Excelente música, bons tempos!!!
What is that structure at 0:29?
i would like to track down every person in this video and ask them if their life really did change .
This Is The Day - 2/20 #PlayStation2013 #Remember
First record and dance at my wedding....deja vu me thinks!
1984 . . . CBS . . . all the money in the world. Error, try again
1984 ---- CBS ---- all the money in the world.
thankyou baker for showing me badass skating and badass music
Ah.... I remember the rooftop scene in Empire Records.
My pastor's daughter's (and my sister's best friend) recent marriage brought me here. Congrats Abby and Nick! I hope you have a lifetime of love and happiness together!
Looking back this video is pretty mediocre, good song but fuck the video is low budget.
Phenomenal album on cassette in 80's
Empire Records :)
Bake and destroy (spankys song)
