Don White's "MTV Love Song"

My friend Don White has posted a bunch of videos on his YouTube site, -- some great stuff about parenting, the Red Sox, and this, his "MTV Love Song," which has long been my favorite of his songs. White has a way of making family-friendly comedy pointed and personal, avoiding the same old cliches about family strife and put-upon dads to get to something much more satisfying. This song is a good example of that. He could have just written a song about a grumpy old guy watching TV and yelling at kids to get off of his lawn, but he didn't. There's a story here, with depth and subtlety.

And if you like this one, take a look at the others and link and embed freely. I know White is looking to spread these videos around a bit, and this is my effort to help that.
