Todd’s 10 Favorite Online Music Clips (plus Meatloaf and Garbage!)

Over on Facebook, I already posted a politics item, a comics item, and a skeptic item today, so by tradition, that leaves one of Todd’s four zones untapped, remedied with this entry: music.  (Though I will double-dip into politics by noting that Meatloaf endorsed Romney.)

My performance of “Hey Now Now” by Cloud Room seemed to go over pretty well at a farewell karaoke party for lovely soon-to-be-expatriate Jessica Eisenberg of Jezzy and the Belles a couple days ago, but instead of linking to that fine song, here are: my top ten favorite music-related videos on the Internet (not necessarily my favorite songs), and only half are from the 80s (the last five):

Maru attacking boxes to Slayer's "Angel of Death" (we watched him a bit at this week’s Dionysium, too, I must confess -- though a new study shows dogs prefer Beethoven to that Slayer song, really; not all studies are entirely necessary)

"Treeline" by Sarah Donner and her sleepy kitten

"Shock the Monkey" by Peter Gabriel (dedicated to the captured "mystery monkey" of Florida)

"Sharkey's Day" by Laurie Anderson

"Cuts You Up" by Peter Murphy (my karaoke specialty, though I also did "Hey Now Now" by Cloud Room the other night at the Eisenberg affair)

"Big in Japan" by Alphaville (and, hey look: they're actually still big in Japan)

"Synchronicity II" by the Police (this one actually is my favorite song of all time, though, like it or not)

And though it's nothing special visually, just for the heck of it: new Garbage.
