FBO: 'Tall Tales Week Re-Dux'

TWO VIDEOS FROM THE 1980s' VAULT

Tall Tales' 1988 video 'Ways to Stay' has no excuse for the extended doorway sequence. And none is offered.



That same year, Tall Tales took a break to be tender for a minute, with "This Song's Not About Love," a four-minute anthem to feelings. Tall Tales' feelings. The crumbling ruins of present-day Oklahoma City's happy Bricktown served as the backdrop to how the five-piece group collectively felt inside: discarded, abandoned, tattered, frightened, timid, alone. The empty tracks and stagnant pools mimicked the band's gateways to success -- a no go.



And, yes, you saw it right. Both are filmed on FILM.

Maybe Tall Tales will get lucky and a developer will put restaurants and a ballpark in you too.
