Remember the Windows 95 installation CD and that cool video included on the disk?

The music video was by Edie Brickell performing Good Times: With Ambient Sound and Alain Duplantier, Brian Cresto, Robin Burchill (C) 1994 Geffen Records.  Life would not be fun without the bad times – it may sound strange at first, but it’s so true! Enjoy!

    It is one of those songs that you get in your head and listen to all day long. Same for the mental images of Edie.

    I have been wondering for years who sang this song. I found it on the CD but no name. Anyhow Edie Brickell is on FB.

    Haha, this is truely awesome ! This song reminds me of the summer of ’95 when, as a LAN Systems Engineer, I had to set up an ATM network to demonstrate how video could be simply transported from one machine to another without interruption. This video was the only one I had access to at the time and I had it continous loop for 3 days during the show in Birmingham, UK. The song was burned into my head by the end of the show and I don’t what inspired me to search for “Geffen Records Microsoft” today but the memories came flooding back in an instant. Thank you.

    This was the first. whatsoever, video I experienced on a computer screen – after installing the MS Win95 for the 1st time, onto a Pentium 33 machine for the kids, back in the mid 90´s.

    As for most comments on this page, it awakes memories of when the kids were smaller, when you still were considered a natural parent authority in their eyes, – and, of course, reinstallations of Win95.
    Those were the times…

    Nowadays, the kids now more about the computers, SSD-disks, motherboards etc, and they help their father when needed.
    And about the parent “authority” ?
    Well, authority, smauthority…

    They still love their father – you now, with that kind of forgiving love, realizing that, the old fart can´t do so much better, but at least he can explain some analog techniques – whenever that is needed…

    And Edie Brickells “Good Times, Bad Times” will live forever.

    Yesterday, on our way home from the office, my husband asked me about this song, “who sang that song? do you remember?”….I was just at elementary school when I heard that song, I love it so much, and I said to my husband “I don’t know the singer, I just love the song…he..he..sorry, love”….and now I found who’s the singer, and when I watch this video this morning, I moved my body, enjoy this song so much…and my boss asked me “are you okay?”…….oh sir, this is my good, good, good time!!!!!

    I’ve been looking for this song since… well, when Windows 95 was released. This DEFINITELY brings back memories. I thought I was the only person in the world that knew about this video.
