i die when i watch LA BOYZ videos. i watch a lot of really bad music videos, but for some reason their horrible rhymes and hilarious accent just make me lose it. the best line ever is in the song 'jump' at 4:10 - 'super good looks, super like a man, super cool, super fit, super fast, super slick, super in tennis ball, super in basketball, super in management, super intelligent.' excuse me, super in TENNIS BALL? super in MANAGEMENT? this is not real. 'go posse' features more colorblocking and thugged out choreographed dance moves on the basketball court. the video for 'ya' takes classical music to a whole notha level. the lyrics are so dumb and the subtitles somehow heighten the brain-numbing stupidity. 'pure energy' has a phat beat and some very womanly singing interludes.
i was in a major vanessa paradis phase about two weeks ago. 'joe le taxi' features some classy dancing in a sweatshirt/sweatpants ensemble. im obsessed with the song 'be my baby' - it's just so dang good! not to mention that she's extremely gorge. 'pourtant' is a magical, hypnotic song that my roommate used to play all the time my soph year.
das modul videos are like entering a trippy techno dance party in the early stages of the internet. '1100101' has each crazy computer clubgoer getting their groove on in a separate pop-up window. 'fruhlingsgefuhle' starts off with the girl showing the guy her various outfits over online video chat and somehow winds up in a glorious happy weird nature wonderland. 'computerliebe' has the guy get somehow transported inside the computer to a scary, completely bizarre world of curlicues. and the girls hairstyle is something i can't even begin to describe. i'm just glad i have no idea what the lyrics mean - it somehow ups the trippiness factor.
as far as live performances go, den harrow has a pretty unique act going on. these videos KILL me - i've never seen such dramatic nonsensical movements come from the mind and body of one person. 'bad boy' is completely hilarious and has random interludes with people in bikinis, vampire capes, and big leather circles around their necks. 'catch the fox' starts off with a mini den harrow doll, complete with forehead headband, creeping across the screen. the part where he aims a bow and arrow at a target and then somehow ten arrows appear on the bulls eye is just epic. 'a taste of love is seriously one of the funniest and dumbest dance sequences i've ever seen, if you can even call the back view of writhing around on a chair dancing. and he sits for so long posing! i die. and he is a HORRIBLE lipsyncher.
gut gut super gut. gut gut super gut. watching mo-do's video for their club jam 'super gut' was one the defining moments of my life. NOT. but it did make my day a bit more hilar. i love the singers little silver neckerchief. and club kids walking on the ceiling, vacuuming, holding rainbow feather dusters and eating popsicles near a cactus. duh of course. get super super gut with this weird bonus link i found.
if you haven't already seen 'nacho libre' you betta watch it now! for serious, it is so funny. the part where jack black sings his improvised song to encarnacion is HILAR. i sing it regularly to make myself laugh. the singing at the party is also hilar, i couldn't find the full clip online. and here's a bonus clip of one of my fave parts of the movie. xxooxxooXXooXX. get that corn outta ma face!!!
i love me some bangin reggaeton so when i saw a miguelito video on tv at 4 in the morning i flipped. there is nothing that is not amazing/hilar in his videos. i mean, he's an 8 year old with ice around his neck and a gang of bitches gyrating behind him while he sings 'montala.' i don't know when the zoo became gangsta but that's where the 'boom boom' video takes place. go-karts, ok, but i just don't get how dolphins fit into the equation. and 'esto es business' shows that miguelito is a mini mogul that works hard and plays hard. ai dios mio.
if you want to enter the 'world of magic' then you've found the right place with a pharao music video. pharao's world of magic involves unicorns, strobe lights inside pyramids, and lots of gold headpieces. the video for 'there is a star' has even more gold headpieces and all gold ensembles plus a giant snake worn as a neck accessory. i never imagines that a futuristic egyptian pyramid spaceship music video could be so amazing. the beginning of the 'i show you secrets' video is hilarious, i love a good whisper talking interlude: 'i'll show you secrets....of your life. come with me. it's the messenger of music.' is the secret of my life that the best dance parties took place inside pyramids with lots of flames and a man wearing blue glasses? the secret's out.
i completely forgot that joey lawrence existed until i found this marvelous music video for his song 'nothing my love can't fix.' i love when television teen idols make an album on the side because it always winds up being some glorious gem like this one! joking aside, the video is making me seriously consider bringing back flannel shirts tied around the waist. and it also made me wonder why so many male teen idols are so short: the jonas brothers, david cassidy, JTT, joey lawrence, davy jones, etc. maybe they are less threatening to teenage girls, who knows. whoa!
