Video Review: Whitesnake “Here I Go Again ’87”

Tawny Kitaen does a cartwheel over two cars in a parking lot during the day. David bends the microphone stand as he performs on stage. Jon, Micky and Neil play their instruments behind him. David talks to Kitaen in the car at night. They drive off.

As smoke billows around her, Kitaen does the splits over the cars. While he drives the car, she hangs outside of it and sits close to him. She kisses him on the cheek and then the lips. He smiles as she puts his arm around him. Back on stage, Micky licks his guitar. David bites Kitaen’s leg. She pulls him into the backseat as they kiss.

Rating: 4.5/5

David beams as Tawny Kitaen introduces him as her boyfriend. It never got old. He shakes her friend’s hand and says he’s heard plenty of stories. Her friend laughs and says he hasn’t heard the really good stories yet. Kitaen tells him they are so embarrassing. He bumps her shoulder and says it’ll be okay.

In other relationships, he would’ve teased her or dumped her. However, he really wanted to know what made her tick. Over dinner, he tells her friend to share the stories. Kitaen adds some context. He tells her he thought it was adorable. She puts her hand on her forehead and says it was so long ago. He says he would’ve liked to have known her then. Kitaen says she was messed up and would’ve screwed up the relationship. He tells her she’s perfect. She tells him he’s kind to say so.

Kitaen was his first long-term relationship since high school. He hadn’t wanted to be tied down. However, after meeting Kitaen, he realized he wanted to take her everywhere. His parents adored her. However, he wasn’t thinking marriage just yet. He was enjoying spending all his time with her.
