Recommend some music videos to me!
« on: December 01, 2008, 11:21:40 PM »
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 gonna be fun. Let's see what everyone recommends  :)

As for me, let me suggest a couple of videos. Taking a cue from the screenshots you posted, I propose these:
- In the U2-performing-live-one-of-their-hits-and-featuring-a-legend category  :P, here you go: One (Live Grammy Awards 2006) - U2 feat. Mary J Blige
- While in the teen-pop-star(s)-in-stockings-and-a-plaided-miniskirt category  :D, let me suggest no less than the Russian duo t.A.T.u: How soon is now - t.A.T.u. (This is a cover of The Smiths, by the way)

Hope you enjoy  8)
I'll have what she's having

If it doesn't need to be _youtube_ video and not even very recent one, you may find nice ones from here too: http://www.80smusicvids.com/.

Portishead's The Rip is a very strange video, but I like the music.



EDIT: Embedded video in post.

Lemon Jelly's 64-96 album actually has a few really good ones that I like. Such as:

Grrr, what is it with youtube and "this movie is not available in your country"? The people who thought of that need to be shot, asap. (Can't watch the "Mad World" video - is it the Gary Jules cover from Donnie Darko, or the original Tears For Fears?).

Johnny Cash's cover of Nine Inch Nails's hurt is pretty amazing - you can watch it at YouTube, but please do yourself the favor and go to Mark Romanek's site, he's the director and the video quality there is better.

this is a little confusing,
but if I understand correctly it's Gary Jules with his first video of the song - it's the one filmed from the rooftop of kids making different "things" on the footpath below
Quote
The original video of Mad World. (the one by Gary Jules, of course. By original, I meant the actual Gary Jules one, not the Donnie Darko one. There. Happy? I am heavily aware of the fact that TFF did a video long before Gary. I knew before I posted the video. You'd think that one of the progenitor of the video would know these things.) Throughout the video children are making animated figures on the sidewalk below. (the song was featured in the movie Donnie Darko. If you haven't seen it, seriously consider it.)


(see attachment in previous post)Wouldn't want to miss THIS ONE!
really enjoyed that one - or there's the techno version :D

Got news for ya, it doesn't stop there either.
Just be grateful you don't have to deal with me on a regular basis. (I'm allergic to 8's and 2's!) :-[

One of my favourites when sliding into the moral abyss of too much alcohol, (those interested in the America's Cup will remember it):

Men At Work - Land Down Under

And then, hard rock is always good:

Rose Tattoo - Rock'n'Roll Outlaw, Branded & We Can't Be Beaten

The Angels - We Gotta Get Outta This Place, (I think it flows better than Eric Burden's original - rocks way better too :) ).

Tempered with something a little more popular:

Hunter & Collectors - Holy Grail

Just to show I'm not totally pro-aussie:

Johnny Warman - Screaming Jets - for a bit of computer nostalgia.

Molly Hatchet - Fall Of The Peacemakers

The Clash - London Calling

Wall Of Voodoo - Far Side Of Crazy

WARNING: The following is definitely NSFWWoC, (Not Suitable For Work, Wife or Children) - unless they have a really, REALLY good, (or warped), sense of humour and don't mind the odd four letter word or 50.

And for when you're flat out totally inebriated sitting around a campfire with your fellow inebriates, nothing beats firing up:

Kevin 'Bloody' Wilson - Hey Santa Claus!, (because it's almost Christmas) - I'll let you find his other songs on YouTube ;)

As for sheer video eye candy, here's some to have fun with.

OK Go - Here It Goes Again
here-it-goes-again01.jpg

For the guitar hero inside you, Queen and Pachabel would be impressed. (Warning: crank it!)

For the geek inside you, The Machine Us/ing Us. Very nice video.
digital-is-different.jpg

So sue me. I have a thing for girls in short skirts. (110 million views!)

Finally, one of the strangest and most moving videos I've ever seen by Unkle called, Rabbit in your Headlights. It was sad and powerful and strangely damning. And then there's the end of the video, the part no-one forgets. The whole video is utterly cryptic. It's almost impossible to say what it means, but it's equally hard to find someone who can watch it, really watch it, and remain unmoved.

This music video used to run smoothly for me but I just checked it out today and maybe one of my plugins is messing something up but in any case, if you enjoy a heart filled live performance, check out Shinedown doing a cover of 'Simple Man'.

Shinedown - Simple Man

Oh ya ... If you enjoy great singers, I'm going to sound a little tootie-frootie for bringing this one up but man she got pipes and rocks this out. Celine Dion doing a cover of 'Alone' by Heart.

Celine Dion - Alone

that was heavy going, really shocking really, glad something "good" happened in the end
I'm  also glad I watched the "OK Go - Here It Goes Again" one after ;D had a good laugh (phew!)

havent listened to everything yet but working my way through them, thanks for the music :-)


edit/ forgot to say 4WD - I've actaully heard "Kevin 'Bloody' Wilson" (that track in particular) on the radio somewhere - I'm presuming there was a good few beeps involved ;)

not sure of the maths here but isn't that 3 kinds? (I know that quote as 'there are 10 kinds of people in the world, those who understand binary, and those who don't...')
