Awesome Old Song of the Week: "November Rain" by Guns N' Roses

The weather in Boston this weekend inspired me to go with this song.

Growing up I didn't have cable television in my house, so I rarely ever watched MTV.  In the summers I went to tennis camp at Dartmouth College and stayed in the dorms there, which did have MTV.

Over a two week span in July/August of 1992 I'm fairly certain I saw the November Rain video approximately 46 times.  According to Wikipedia, Guns N' Roses spent over $2.5 million to make it, ranking it among the most expensive music videos ever made.

The song is also the longest (8:57) to ever crack the top 10 on the Billboard charts.
