Music Video Of The Day: Morris Day 'Fishnet'

By Chuck Sudo in Arts & Entertainment on Oct 14, 2014 10:30PM

We love The Time but finding any classic videos related to Morris Day and company is like drilling for oil in a dry field, since Prince owns all intellectual property rights to the group, including its name and we know how The Purple One gets when his stuff is found online. (The band these days records and performs as "The Original 7ven.")

So we have to settle for some solo Morris Day today, which is a solid consolation considering his Time/Original 7ven bandmates Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis also appear in the video. All that's missing is Jerome Benton and a mirror and we're enjoying some Minneapolis funk circa 1984. Enjoy this video before someone pulls it from YouTube.

Since you apparently can't watch music videos on television anymore, we'll showcase one here daily. There's no rhyme or reason, time or season, to which video we'll choose. Have a suggestion? Contact us at
