Paid Off Mix

This one’s for my sister Juliette. Notwithstanding my previous driving mix, I think if you make a driving sing-along mix and you don’t include some Pet Shop Boys, you have no cachet whatsoever. As with my previous mix, this is intended to be played in the order given. I have however included single links for those persons unable to listen to mixes (*shakes head*).

Video hookup

Before we get to the videos, other misc:

Ten back-to-school songs for your adorable tykes, approved by the Lovely Mrs. Davis. My little guy goes to first grade in two weeks. Sniffle.

– Maria from Her Jazz took a photo of something that’s probably been there since the 70s — someone getting their Led on.

– Brian from Moistworks contemplates throwing the artistic and musical gates wide open. Though in theory I agree, artists have to eat just like engineers. If we could just figure out a way to have both.

And now to the videos!

– A new video by Wisely, “Through Any Window”, stars the beautiful Jenna Fischer. The song ain’t that bad either :D

– Stereogum shares the new Stars video, “Take Me To the Riot”. The A plot is kind of meh, but I love the scenes with the band in them.

– From Achtung Baby!, video of Eisley live, just to prove that those harmonies aren’t faked.

Andrew Bird’s video for “Imitosis” at the Music Slut. Nerd rock leaves me so cold, but I love the little jeweled bugs.

– Also via the Music Slut, Madonna’s faux-French performance of “Vogue” at the 1990 VMAs. Could there be anything bad about men in gold hotpants? No, no there could not.

– And also also via the Music Slut, you may see how Youtube can be used to resurrect the Charleston. 23 skidoo!

– I am very fond of Jefito’s “Chartburn” posts, especially this one featuring Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy the Silence” and this one with “Down Under” by Men At Work. Ah, memories.

– Old news, but G. vs. B. has video for MIA’s “Jimmy.”
