music video

Devil Fool

simply LOVE the music video for Devil Fool by Be Brave Benjamin directed by Pablo Maestres. so beautifully shot, and an awesome concept… it’s strangely fun to watch people teetering on the precipice of disaster.

This is not a music mix

in lieu of the fact that the music mixes are currently on hiatus i thought it would be a good idea to share some tunes with you that have been making my happy lately. nothing new here though, folks. i’ve only been entertaining the oldies.

PS: i can’t believe i haven’t included a Queen track in any of the mixes yet. i loved Queen so much growing up that my best friend and i staged a musical performing our favourite songs to our parents… i think they loved it (or they were just being really polite). you’re my best friend is a particular favourite because i always used to sing along to it in my mom’s car (it was the only cassette tape she had in there) and whenever it comes on now i feel like a 10 year old again.

elton john is another one of those dudes whose music makes me so happy, even though so many of his songs are rather bittersweet. the fact that i can sing along to them at the top of my voice probably does it for me.

(love how he dances at 1:10)

I’d rather dance with you

thanks to lance for reminding me of this brilliant video. i was just reliving this song the other day, particularly these lyrics:

Even if I could hear what you said
I doubt my reply would be interesting for you to hear
Because I haven’t read a single book all year
And the only film I saw, I didn’t like it at all

i’m sure those of you who are socially awkward can relate! if i go to a party these days i’ll get a few drinks in me and hit the dance floor as soon as possible. it breaks down so many barriers, eh? plus it’s fun.

happy friday all – hope you get some dancing in.

you might have noticed the lack of new posts here today – due to the usual reasons (busy busy busy real life bla bla bla). well, i’ll leave you with at least a little something on this lovely friday, in honour of the noticeable change of season around here. here’s the music video for the morning benders song all day day light:

doo wop

my copy of the miseducation of lauryn hill was basically the soundtrack to my life when i was 15 (as well as the fugees, actually). to the point where not only did i know the words to all the songs, but i knew the words of the interludes of the children discussing things between each track. i am craving for her to make a comeback, big time. but who knows if that’s ever going to happen? for now i can take solace in one of my favourite ever music videos:

new goldfrapp music video directed by legs

Q: How would you describe this video in under 140 characters?

A: Goldfrapp leads Black Metal heads through sexed up aerobics – they are joined by neon nymphs who seduce and sacrifice them for rainbow blood.
