Don't fear the reaper

Hello!

Just heard the song

and I remembered that the original CD of Win 95 had the video of this song.

Does anyone know where can I obtain that particular video? Since the CD has been long gone.

On a side note, I believe there was another video on the CD from the series called the Happy Days, featuring Fonzy. Anyone knows about this video?

Gotta admit that is the first I heard of that.

I have all the Windows CD's a few feet away, so I can look for it.

Do you have any filename/filetype clues?

Come to think about it I believe if was NOT the Win95 CD. But I know it was from a M$ CD. And when started it said

"Where do you want to go today?"

And after you clicked it showed you around the CD as in some sort of Encyclopedia.

It must have been the ONLY occasion where MS was actually ahead of their time:

The campaign was one of the least successful one in the history of advertising (when compared with the awful amount of money wasted on it), it's fun that after 15 years a single "estimator" comes out.... :unsure:

Though it did produce some nice ideas:

"Microsoft: Where do you want to go today ?

Linux: Where do you want to go tomorrow ?

BSD/OS-X: Are you guys coming or what ?!?"

:lol:

The files on both CDROMs called Weezer.avi and Weezer.mpg is the same clip from Happy Days. It is the one where a band called Weezer is playing at Arnold's. I didn't see the Fonz in that video. EDIT: See later post for better info.

No sign of Blue Oyster Cult anywhere. What I was really hoping to find was the Stones 'Start Me Up', but alas, nada.

Note that the Win98 series CDROMs have some videos also but quite a few less than the Win95 series.

EDIT: corrected Weezer mention and the file totals.

Could the Don't Fear The Reaper be then on the Win 98 CD?

Really wish we'll be able to find that video. It was awesome.

btw. Just did a search for Microsoft and Don't Fear The Reaper and nothing comes up.

Don't think this helps much but in the said video there was a girl who screamed at the end because someone had died..

its just their music video, not a clip from the show, they didnt debut until 10 years after happy days ended.

And i dont know how you miss fonz in that video, did you miss Al too?

Jeez, now you forced me to watch the whole darn thing! Thanks so much! :wacko:

OK, this Weezer, I get it, its an edit, LOL! For anyone else wondering, its a 90's grunge band that made a video by dubbing their song to a collage of Happy Days clips, {see here, the band used the actual TV stage set and Al showed up for this video, essentially it was a Forrest Gump which had just came out in 1994} interspersed with some clips of the main characters, including Ritchie, Potsy and the Fonz in a few frames (don't blink).

Come to think of it, I think I recognize the intro sequence where Al announces the band. It looks like they actually grabbed this segment from the episode where the Fonz was doing a motorcycle jump outside Arnold's (I think he crashed?).

It is very well done from a producer's point of view, the syncing is exceptional. The music, ah well, I'm sure somebody likes it ( :whistle: ) In that era my favorite band was probably Dream Theater. Anyway, I never saw it before, probably because MTV lost me long before 1994 came around.

I'll look through the Win98 and Plus CD's later.

EDIT: Further info in this color

Don't Fear The Reaper was one of those songs that just sticks in your head and never leaves. The best part of Happy Days was Fonz on that Triumph. But then so are early Harley's, BSA's, and Norton's. I guess there were episodes that had Fonzi riding other bikes but, the only ones I remember were the Triumph's
