Description

Music video by RUN-DMC performing Mary, Mary. (C) 1988, 1999 Arista Records, Inc.

"Mary, Mary" is a song written by Michael Nesmith. It was first recorded by The Butterfield's Blues Band for their 1966 album, East-West. Nesmith's band, The Monkees, would later record the song themselves. The rap group, Run-D.M.C., revived the song in the late 1980s with a cover version that hit the R&B and Pop charts in the United States.

Run-D.M.C. covered "Mary, Mary" in a rap rock version which was released as a single from their fourth album, Tougher Than Leather in 1988. It was released by Profile Records and was produced by the group along with Rick Rubin. It was their most successful single from the album, being the only one to make it to the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number 75, and peaking at number 29 on the Hot Black Singles chart.

Run-D.M.C. changed the line "Mary, Mary, where ya' goin' to" to "Mary, Mary, why ya' buggin'". Although Run-D.M.C. replaced Michael Nesmith's original lyrics with a new set of lyrics of their own, Nesmith was the only writer credited on Run-D.M.C.'s single. Run-D.M.C.'s version samples Micky Dolenz singing the title from the Monkees' recording.

myspace videos cleanup

Phase 1 of the myspace cleanup is done. All dead videos (about 6500+) should be gone. The rest was checked and is still working.

Phase 2 is far more complicated and will take considerably longer; I will gradually try to replace/repost as much as I can (find) over the next months.

Thanks for your patience.

TIP: use the "Search Options" on the New Videos page, to filter out only the new videos.
