[ELITISM ON]
More like metalized pop, than real thing.

Eh, not too different from my perspective. Just looked up Ten Masked Men, good find. I enjoyed the "Eye of the Tiger" cover.  :-*

...And points to you for admitting to the elitism, too many of our iron brothers wouldn't cop to that in a million years.  :Thmbsup:

Not a fan of the song, but this mashup video is pretty darn good:

lovely harmonies here -- what can I say: they're young, French, and in bed (SFW):

Thanks for sharing that. I liked it. :Thmbsup:

I thought she had her eyes closed because she was supposed to be sleepy/sleeping in that song (no idea what the song is about, except pupils (as in eyeballs)). But it seems she always just sings with her eyes closed:



And this one is in English! (She opens her eyes when she's not singing, then closes them as soon as she starts singing again.)

Many singers do this.  If used consistently, however, you lose your ability to connect with the audience in a lot of cases.  The eyes being the windows to the soul, it's good to use them to draw your audience in.

After watching a few videos of them, I almost wonder if it's because she can't look at him without laughing. :)

Amazing song.  If anyone wants to compare with the original as done by Nico with Velvet Underground:

I don't know why the Tube insists everything has to be a video.  Zillions of music uploads where the "video" is the album cover sitting there(or twirling/fading if the uploader is a special effects wannabe.)  :)

Hehe, this thread has come close to de-volving into "Recommend new music to me, and if there's a video, all the better, but we all know it's about the tunes..."  ;D

So, here's a video I hope you'l enjoy; Electroswing at it's finest, and a fun video to boot.

I guess I still resent the MTV gimmick from years ago.  Force the viewer's eyes to refocus every 2 1/2 seconds and they won't change the channel.  :)  Unless there's hot chicks in a video that doesn't employ that technique I usually am not much interested.  Exceptions would be clean video of Jimi Hendrix that shows his guitar work in closeup.  SRV or Miles Davis etc..   But yet another drummer "playing" a snare drum full of milk I can live without.  :)

Oh, you mean when MTv actually played videos?... yeah, good times. 
Actually, I fully agree with you; the abuse of jump cuts and shaky cam effects trumping good old fashioned filmmaking got way out of hand there for a while, though you gotta admit some of the older videos can get a bit on the boring side (Black Sabbath's 'Paranoid' anyone?).
The flip side is I've always felt that videos were supposed to be for showcasing some visual creativity alongside the music, or giving you a taste of what a live show might be like if you'd get off the couch and go.

And to be fair, I was never a good enough guitarist to pick up what anybody was doing in a video anyway; I figured that's what lessons were for.  :P

But yet another drummer "playing" a snare drum full of milk I can live without. 

How about cocaine?  ;D



(j/k, they're a metal band, they can't afford THAT much cocaine)

Stromae - Papaoutai (french)

Wow, the implications of that video are pretty deep-seated.  Basically, if you have kids, be a dad, not a space filler who happens to bring money home.  At least, that's what I got out of it...

The url code for the video is all that needs to be in the tags, like so:

https://www.youtube..../watch?v=vTIIMJ9tUc8 <-- just this part after the '=' sign

Most people who watched Jimi were not guitarists.  But they still wanted to watch the technique.

I don't understand how one would play an Eric Clapton tune out of a snare drum only.  :)

Sometimes you're not on your own system and you need a good song... or 20. Do me a favor and recommend a favorite YouTube song of yours, such as this one from U2 with Bruce Springsteen:

u2_neworleansafp.jpg

I don't care what kind of music. Anything would be nice. Don't laugh, lately I've been stuck on this show, which is a soft landing after a long day:

hannahmontana-01.jpg

official version; TV version. Of course, you could always go French or go home with Alizee -- hell oui!
This is the first one that came to mind:
