This just may be the definitive version of Peter Gabriel's In Your Eyes from the Back to Front Tour  which ends in December of this year. Awesome!

Eels - Things the Grandchildren Should Know
- Very few artists write songs that have the same impact as a good Eels song do. Live version.
https://www.youtube..../watch?v=HZACwCFsjlU

interesting lyrics there...
Spoiler
I go to bed real early
Everybody thinks it's strange
I get up early in the morning
No matter how disappointed i was
With the day before
It feels new

I don't leave the house much
I don't like being around people
Makes me nervous and weird
I don't like going to shows either
It's better for me to stay home
Some might think it means i hate people
But that's not quite right

I do some stupid things
But my heart's in the right place
And this i know

I got a dog
I take him for a walk
And all the people like to say hello
I'm used to staring down at the sidewalk cracks
I'm learning how to say hello
Without too much trouble

I'm turning out just like my father
Though i swore i never would
Now i can say that i have a love for him
I never really understood
What it must have been like for him
Living inside his head

I feel like he's here with me now
Even though he's dead

It's not all good and it's not all bad
Don't believe everything you read
I'm the only one who knows what it's like
So i though i'd better tell you
Before i leave

So in the end i'd like to say
That i'm a very thankful man
I tried to make the most of my situations
And enjoy what i had
I knew true love and i knew passion
And the difference between the two
And i had some regrets
But if i had to do it all again
Well, it's something i'd like to do

I watched the video and wondered what was so entertaining about it... I found it amusing with the dog being all dressed up and stuff, but not especially entertaining. Until the end. Heh heh. Now I see what you were talking about. ;D

No - I'm just easily entertained :)
The end does make it, but I just loved that little twist on "that look you gave that guy, I wanna see, looking back at me".

That build up... to the end.  It's long, but very much worth it!

I'd never heard of this song before today, though I had heard of Pete Seeger.



Needless to say, I LOVED it!  :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

I have a new song to add to my regular playlists!

I especially enjoyed that lovely and adorable young woman's smile around the 2:20 mark when she realized she was up on the big stage screens. Too cute! ;D

This one is fun. With thanks to the Sploid blog for the find.

Mayokero is the first song of the album Acowpella Beatbox by Israeli artist Roy Kafri. The music video—directed by Vania Heymann, a second year student in Bezalel School of Art and Design—is brilliant. It takes classic album covers and animates them to sing along the song in a completely seamless way.

Electric bass. Though I'd seen them all. Fretted and fretless...4-string...then 5-string...then 6-string...then 8...then 12...

Then along came Mark Sandman of the band Morphine with his unique 2-string slide bass technique. At which point I thought I had heard it all too.

But now there's a pedal steel bass dubbed the "Slideking Bass" made by Jackson Steel Guitar Co. and played by none other than Zane King.

Learn something new every day.

^Yeah. Pretty awesome wasn't he? Yet another Boston music scene original - with a capital 'O.' Totally unique sound and approach to the role of bassist. I really miss him and that band. :(

This probably my fav:



Some of the sleaziest sounding vocal, bass, and sax lines since Lou Reed's Take a Walk in the Wild Side.

Blast from the past here. A an "alt" band I really liked called Garbage with Shirley Manson on vocals.

While we're on the 'alternative' trip, how about my hometown folks Hammerbox?





Overlooked as just another 'grunge' band, they really spit out some burners on their major label release.  The difference between first and second album's vocals by Carrie Akre are like day and night.  Their first 'demo' album had her off-handedly dropping lazy lyricalities over the band's hard buzz, the second --- WHOA!!  Bloody raw emotion and soul splattered across every track.
Paramore fans owe somebody a big "thank you".

Speaking of which, Alanis Morrisette fans owe Betsy Martin some props:



Maximum '80s groove there, with what should be the most annoying vocals in the universe, but somehow it works out.  This is their only official video, using enlarged photocopies of film footage colored with markers and crayons.  It caught the attention of MTv big-time back in the day, but the mainstream music industry quickly lost interest.  Their loss.  Caterwaul went on to do two more excellent albums of quite listenable stuff (Portent Hue sounds absolutely HUGE). 
One of the only bands of this genre and era that interested me as a budding metalhead.

For anyone that understands music, "Marching Out" is simply musical insanity raised to GODLIKE proportions.



From 1:50 to about 2:00 there is simply orders of magnitude beyond virtuoso. Stunning work. Nobody has ever approached that. Steve Vai is the only contender that I know of.

Still, girl has skillz~!  :Thmbsup:

Like that? Check out Desiree Basset (tons on YouTube) when you get a chance. That's a young lady that can play metal. 8)

My daughter is going absolutely bonkers for PLANETS!!!!

At 2 she can list all the planets in the solar system in order, and is constantly wanting more and more.

So, we've downloaded a bunch of slide shows, montages, videos, and music videos about planets, the solar system, space, etc. etc.

Some drive me a bit nuts. (Some kids videos are from India, but the English is pretty mangled and sometimes painful to listen to.)

But, every now and then there are some seriously cool ones. This music video falls into the AWESOME category!  :Thmbsup:



It's just so really, very, extremely well done. The choruses are really just extremely cool, and the verses are brilliant.

Tell me if you end up bobbing your head. ;)

Okay, time to get silly ;D ... With MINECRAFT!!
Lots of folks have done some music videos using minecraft as a machinima, though it's kind of hard to find original stuff.

These are the best originals I could find:

Boom-Boom-Boom-Boom-Boom-Boom-Boom-Boom-Boom-Boom-Boom-Boom-Boom
(AKA Creeper Rap):


Take Back the Night (epic child's-revenge-for-murdered-parents-movie themed video):


There are lots of parodies that are basically karaoke tracks with spliced-together screencasts of MC gameplay, but a few stood out as having obviously done by a 3D modeling and animation program.  The best two I could find:

Don't Mine At Night (Katy Perry - Friday Night parody)


Revenge (Usher - DJ Got Us Fallin In Love Again parody)

Yodeling!  ;D

My favorite yodeling song of all time set to a dern-right DEE-sturbin' film-class production:


I also tend to classic C&W when I'm in the mood for cow-kickin' tunes.
Roy Rogers at his yodeling best:
