Whoever came up with the idea of Youtube deserves a Congressional Medal of Honor. And if you’ve never heard of the Democracy Player, you need to get that too. It allows you to search for youtube and Google videos and then download them and save them on your harddrive. It’s also open source and free, so even better. Anyway, here are some links to cool and obscure stuff I’ve found on Youtube lately.
Here’s a classic early 80s video, Toronto’s Your Daddy Don’t Know.
One of my all time favorites, David and David’s Welcome to the Boomtown.
Devo’s Whip It.
The Proclaimers – 500 Miles.
One of INXS’ more obscure songs, but one of my favorites – Don’t Change.
Elvis Costello – Pump It Up (featured in the classic movie PCU).
Queensryche’s classic I Don’t Believe in Love, from Operation: Mindcrime (the follow up that came out last year was so bad I couldn’t finish listening to it).
Don’t Stand So Close to Me, one of the best songs the Police ever put out.
The amazing Peter Gabriel – Shock the Monkey.
Last but not least, my favorite Dire Straights song ever, and I think their best video as well. Money for Nothing got all the attention, but this video, all done in sketch animation, is better and perfect for the song – Brothers in Arms.
