OK – so it’s not completely utterly final, but posting something on the same day each week just doesn’t suit my mentality. I’d rather go back to as and when.
However I just wanted to bring you a couple of videos to think about. The first one comes from a TV show that used to be on some years ago here called The Chart Show. They showed nothing but videos, with no presenter and no voice over – just captions, but the great thing was that sometimes they’d show the Indie charts and you’d get some pretty weird shit playing.
This one is a band from Ireland of the late 1980s called Stump. I won’t blame anyone who doesn’t get through all of the song – but stay tuned for that catchy chorus and find yourself shouting “How much is the fish” randomly for years to come
And finally – Michael Jackson. There’s been a lot of talk about him today and I think the thing is that we’ve forgotten somewhere along the line that once he was known for his brilliant music and not for his eccentricities. I think that’s what we should be remembering today.
So, as MJ’s videos are all copyright I thought I’d bring you the below tribute – which I think captures the best of his influence. Share and enjoy :)
