One of my favorites is this video by the comedy troupe Smack the Pony.

It's a spoof on all those "girl bands" back in the 80's that we've learned to loathe.

Here's STP as Karizzma performing Round 'n Around 'n Around.

Is this the one that Kanye West said was like the greatest video of all time in the history of all videos, or something like that?

I just discovered that youtube has a bunch of very good quality live performance videos from the 60s and 70s of one of my favorite groups, The Pentangle (i actually had a chance to see them live when i lived in england briefly).  They played a combination of old medieval folk songs and jazz/rock stuff.  Really amazing stuff.

The Pentangle

Maybe start here (I Got A Feeling):

Wow! Haven't thought about Pentangle  :-* in a long time even though I'm a big fan from way back. Alan Thompson and Nigel Portman-Smith were a major source of inspiration for a lot of what I've done musically over the years.

Thanks for the links!

I have always loved this tune from Daft Punk circa 2001. It was sampled by Kanye West many years later, 80's cartoon type video as well (anyone remember G-Force?)

Kasír,
three young guys from Denmark that play mainly traditional Irish music,
this one: "A Trip to Devon" is written by them (with a traditional Bulgarian piece at the end) - best new music I've heard in a while (new to me anyways)

that one reminds me of another traditional group, from Asturias (North Spain) Llan de Cubel - not that piece in particular, but I like that song (La Casa Gris / The Grey House)


edit/ and another nice one (a bit more modern) from Kasír http://www.youtube.c...X2q69C6hAqU&NR=1

This brought a huge smile to my face (direct youtube link):



Have you ever had a dream that you can play the guitar effortlessly and produce beautiful music and it happens in your dreams like it just flows out of you without requiring any concentration or planning.. this video made me think of such dreams.

Lucky. My dreams are weird. One of my recurring dreams I have is that my teeth become loose or fall out. Just happened to me again last night. Good thing I have a dentist appointment soon. ;)

Probably just when we're needlessly worrying about stuff in our sleep.

Anyway, back on topic:

This one will leave you scratching your head. I have no idea what this guy is so happy about:

Stick with this (despite the vacuous song and gratuitous overuse of AutoTune) as the video takes an unexpected and delightfully surreal twist (or two).

Wow, that's the first time I've seen a "this video has been blocked in your country" errors. I guess EMI doesn't like showing videos for free in the USA.

EDIT: I think this is the same video, and it works for me:


EDIT 2: That video is freaky and weird!
