Skip to comments.The Weekend YouTube Musical Video Thread
Posted on 08/10/2007 9:10:26 AM PDT by Pyro7480
I thought I would start this weekend's YouTube video thread with my answers to a "meme" someone sent to me asking for ten music videos from YouTube.
1.) Take On Me by A-Ha
2.) Ni Ten Ichi Ryu - by Photek (Japanese title, Japanese theme, British artist. I've liked this since I saw this as a teenager in the early AM on a show called "Amp" on MTV which featured electronic music. Who can't resist samurai's chasing each other through the snow?)
3.) New Year's Day by U2 (Great track and more snow. Can you tell I like winter more than summer? ;-) )
4.) Found Out About You by the Gin Blossoms (this is from my favorite album of the 90's - it reminds me of more innocent times.)
5.) Grace by Jeff Buckley (One of my top-rated tracks of the 90s.)
6.) Sabotage by the Beastie Boys (this is just plain awesome - one of the best music videos ever!)
7.) You're Not Alone by Olive (more mid-90s electronic music - I fell in love with the singer's voice, not to mention she's very easy on the eyes.)
8.) The Tension and the Terror (live) by Straylight Run (no-frills video)
9.) Runnin' Down a Dream by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (I remember seeing this as a kid. It's still trippy.)
10.) Fade Into You by Mazzy Star (another monochromatic/black & white video. Great song.)
Considering this heatwave we’ve been experiencing...how about a little Christmas in August ;) ;)
Craig Kilborn - Jason Mraz & Toca Rivera
....and for an encore "Baby Please Don't Go"
Great thread bump.
Danny Gatton, Albert Lee, and Vince Gill tear it up on One Way Rider.
The Zimmers (A group of senior citizens)
The Who (From Monterrey Pop)
And Flipp (A strange, very original, version I saw on MTV a bunch of years back)
Keith Moon. Best drummer that ever lived. What a loss.
We’ll be singing, when we’re winning, we’ll be singing
No apologies are necessary. Thanks for getting things started.
Some good selections. I especially love that Mazzy Star song. Its so haunting.
Ping to the rest of the gang. Happy Friday everyone!
Sailin’ away on the crest of a wave
It’s like magic
Rollin’ and ridin’ and slippin’ and slidin’
And you, and your sweet desire,
You took me, ooh, woah, higher and higher, baby
It’s a livin’ thing,
It’s a terrible thing to lose,
It’s a given thing
What a terrible thing to lose
Making believe this is what you conceived
From your worst day, (I’m thinking of dying)
Moving in line then you look back in time
To the first day (I’m thinking, I’m thinking)
Takin’ a dive ‘cos you can’t halt the slide
Floating downstream, (I’m thinking of dying)
So let her go don’t start spoiling the show
It’s a bad dream (I’m thinking , I’m thinking )
It’s a livin’ thing,
It’s a terrible thing to lose,
It’s a terrible thing to lose
What a terrible thing to lose
Were you born an A$$-Hole? Or did you work at it your whole life? Priceless!
My two cents...
Allman Bros.-Cross To Bear
Nic Armstrong and the Thieves-Broken Mouth Blues
My Morning Jacket-Off The Record
lmAo!! I’m gonna have nightmares tonight!
And I don't remember if I've posted this before, but I heard this song today. I always liked it. Icicle Works-Whisper To A Scream
I’m a big fan of Stevie Nicks and Lucy did a great and funny job that was priceless
