Look what I found! The single to the song. Thats a really good picture of Al!

Interesting find. I think this is an underrated Al song IMHO.

Hope it's okay to bump this topic to share, but, I just found Johnny Dangerously on Netflix, and I checked, TITL is the opening! I've never seen it, but I've heard it's great. I thought I should share the info in case anyone else wanted to check it out.

Yeah its pretty sweet. Haven't seen it since I was about 9 or 10 but I still remember hearing that song in it. Been planning on buying it when I find it in a 5 bucks or less bin. I might consider paying 10 bucks actually, Michael Keaton rules.

Of course, This Is The Life, is used on "Johnny Dangerously", a decent movie. Have you all seen it?

The music video is typical of most soundtrack music videos, movie clips intermixed with the music video. So, it's nothing really special.

The song is very catchy and fun to listen to. It gets you movin'. It's better than the movie it's written for, as far as I'm concerned.
I'm just gonna add my 3 out of 5 star rating.

Nice rating.....NOT. Just found Johnny Dangerously on Netflix, had not seen it since I was a kid so me and the girlfriend watched it and both enjoyed it a lot more than we thought we would! Would definitely buy this movie if I found it in a sales bin, or the price was right. One of those movies I could watch quite a few times, plus the song is in it which makes it all the more awesome.

That's good that Netflix has the song, I know one of the releases didn't have it. Was it the vhs, or was it the HBO version

How has no one started a topic for this song? I like it, it's a jaunty jab at people who become rich and become corrupted by wealth. Plus this is one of those WA vids where Classic Al is at his cutest IMO.

What dy'all think?

Great song. It was from Dare To Be Stupid though.
