I hope it included the Human Sexual Response version of "Cool Jerk"
X is for XTC's Senses Working Overtime, my favorite XTC track.
Y for Yo La Tengo's Deeper Into Movies, live.
Let Z be for.... Buzzcocks, "Promises."
Number time! Now with the song that generated more crank phone calls (in those long gone days before caller ID) than any other I know - I had some friends start at 12:01 a.m. on 1/1/84 and go for several hours straight, dialing and playing the part "Wake Up! It's 1984" line over and over again, laughing themselves silly as only adolescent boys can:
What does number time mean?
When we think of it, we use a number or a symbol after Z and before cycling back to the beginning of the alphabet. Now we're at A again.
Ah, gotcha. At first I'm like "So next we post a song with 1985?"
So here's an A, Arcade Fire's Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels), performed by the Rock-A-Fire Explosion, which people of the right age and location will recognize as the old house band of Showbiz Pizza, the far superior version of Chuck E. Cheese's that existed back in the 80's.
B is for The Black Angels - "Young Men Dead"
Ismitje was happy for numbers, while I have been waiting for C for other than West Side Story, my favorite musical is Camelot. So many songs to choose from...
Camelot -- Take Me to the Fair
OK, I've also been waiting for D for this one....
Dentist! -- Little Shop of Horrors
I know it's not technically a video, but still it moves... me.
Mina - E lucevan le stelle (and the stars shone)
F is for The Flying Burrito Brothers.
G is for G. Love & Special Sauce - Baby's Got Sauce
H is for Hieroglyphics - At the Helm
I for I'm Not Gonna Cry by Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings
The Jam -- A Town Called Malice
From Billy Elliot (the non-musical), but still...
K is for Alice in Chains' - "Killer is Me"
From probably the best MTV Unplugged release ever.
L is for Lulu -- Shout.
That's a whole lotta voice comin' outta that little bitty person.
M for Minutemen, I Felt Like a Gringo, live acoustic version.
N is for Nneka - My Home
O is for "Obscurity Knocks" from the Trashcan Sinatras. It is one of my favorite studio tracks of the 1990s, and with this the only non-live version on YouTube, you get the picture of the CD cover while the tune spins out.
Very, very nice. Great 60s feel without being cheesy retro. Excellent clip, too.
P is for Punjabi MC -- Mundiya Tu Bach Ke
Kind of interesting it combines a reggae guitar riff with a kind of swinging soul sound. My girlfriend plays this artist on her radio show a lot.
