Video hookup

While slowly making my way through my rss feeds, I often come upon videos. Oh Youtube, enabler of so many amateur antics, sometimes you come through.

This one for sister Juliette — Damien Rice and Ray LaMontagne duet on French TV, singing “To Love Somebody.” Two extremely breathy singers, one Bee Gees song –freakin’ awesome.

Patrick Wolf, “The Magic Position” — How can I explain my love for this song (and this video)? Wolf’s in his element here, and he’s singing in his range, and if this song doesn’t make you want to dance like you’re an extra in “Singin’ In the Rain,” you have no heart :)

Xavier Rudd, “Messages.” Like a li’l environmental ad that goes straight to your eyes.

Travis, “Closer.” Fran Healy and his dimples are SO CUTE, and grocery stores seem to be magical places to film a video. I love the guy dancing with his half-gallon of milk.

    Sorry Jobus, never heard of them. Do you like them? What are they like? Of course if they’re on the Garden State soundtrack they are impeccably indie.
