Music Video Friday With Hard Ticket To Home Video: Billy Idol – White Wedding

For this week’s Music Video Friday, I had a chat with Brian of Hard Ticket To Home Video about Billy Idol’s exploding-toaster classic White Wedding. Thanks for doing this with me, Brian! 🙂 I’d also like to thank Pat Benatar and her shoulder shimmy shake for the inspiration. Now let’s talk about White Wedding, shall … Continue reading

Music Video Friday: Various

Well, this post was meant for last week’s Music Video Friday but then Leonard Cohen passed away & I decided to post some of his fantastic songs instead. So, it’s a week late but here are some songs that I can’t seem to get out of my head. Have a great weekend, everyone! 🙂 AC/DC … Continue reading

Music Video Friday: Michael Jackson – Thriller

Today’s video is Michael Jackson’s Thriller. As usual, I’ll be posting nothing but horror reviews & horror top ten lists through all of October so I’ll be skipping Music Video Fridays. I’ve already started my “Halloween Month” a little early by posting My Top Ten Chocolate Bars yesterday so figured I’d post a Halloween-y video … Continue reading

Music Video Friday: Ratt – Round And Round

Today’s video is Round And Round by Ratt. I chose this video because I’m old and uncool. I was a teenager when pretty boy hair metal was popular & I loved it & I won’t apologize. Although, I wouldn’t really say that any member of Ratt was pretty. Not like Kip Winger! Or Mark Slaughter! … Continue reading

Music Video Friday: N*E*R*D – Rock Star

Today’s video is N*E*R*D’s Rock Star. Rock Star is from the 2001 album In Search of… A second version of the album was released in 2002. I’m assuming this second version of the album is what I had (on an actual CD!). I should dig the CD out again – I haven’t listened to it … Continue reading

Music Video Friday: Robyn – Dancing On My Own

Today’s video is Robyn’s Dancing On My Own. I already featured a Robyn video recently (Konichiwa Bitches) so won’t add anything to what I’ve already said about her & what I think of her great, underrated pop songs (you can see my post HERE). I just felt like posting this as the dreary cover by … Continue reading

Music Video Friday: De La Soul – Me Myself And I

Today’s video is De La Soul’s Me Myself And I. Great song from a classic album. I miss music like this! Why does music suck so much nowadays? I suppose I’m just making myself sound old… Oh well. I am! But at least I got to grow up with awesome music. 🙂 Me Myself And … Continue reading

Music Video Friday: Descendents – Weinerschnitzel

Today’s video is Weinerschnitzel by the Descendents. Which doesn’t actually have a video… That’s okay – I’m the only one who likes my Music Video Fridays anyway! 😉 Yesterday was Christian Slater’s birthday (I posted My Top Ten Christian Slater Movies HERE) so I wanted to post a song from my favorite Slater movie today. … Continue reading

Music Video Friday: Madonna – Material Girl

Today’s video is Madonna’s Material Girl. Madonna’s 58th birthday is next week so I posted a list of My Top Ten Madonna Songs yesterday & figured I better post a video today. Obviously, there are loads of Madonna videos to choose from. I’ve chosen Material Girl because I have a huge soft spot for it … Continue reading

Music Video Friday: Iron Maiden – The Number Of The Beast

Today’s video is Iron Maiden’s The Number Of The Beast. Singer & pilot & all-around awesome Bruce Dickinson turns 58 on Sunday so I figured now was a good time to post a video from my FAVORITE BAND. Happy Birthday, Bruce! 🙂 I wasn’t sure which video to choose as Iron Maiden aren’t exactly a … Continue reading

Music Video Friday: Ben E. King – Stand By Me

Today’s video is Ben E. King’s Stand By Me. Today is Wil Wheaton’s 44th birthday. Happy Birthday, Wil Wheaton! I’ve had a thing for Wil ever since the movie Stand By Me, one of my most-loved & most-watched movies. Then I of course loved him again in Star Trek: The Next Generation. Naturally, I also … Continue reading

Music Video Friday: The Pharcyde – Drop 

Today’s video is Drop by The Pharcyde. I hate Coldplay. Seriously. I’m sorry if you like Coldplay. We can still be friends! 😉 But, man, I can’t stand Coldplay. Spike Jonze has directed loads of great music videos. I don’t think I’ve featured any yet but I could easily spend the rest of this year … Continue reading

Music Video Friday: Joan Jett – Bad Reputation 

Today’s video is Joan Jett’s Bad Reputation. Why? Because I’m finally watching Freaks And Geeks & this song has been stuck in my head for weeks since it’s the show’s theme tune. I love Freaks And Geeks! Not sure why I missed out on it at the time as it’s a very “me” show. Set … Continue reading

Music Video Friday: Carly Rae Jepsen – I Really Like You

Today’s video is Carly Rae Jepsen’s I Really Like You, which is not my sort of thing AT ALL. Anyone who knows me probably thought they were on the wrong blog for a second there… Oh well! Tomorrow is Tom Hanks’ 60th birthday & yesterday I did a list of My Top Ten Tom Hanks … Continue reading

Music Video Friday: Robyn – Konichiwa Bitches

Today’s video is Konichiwa Bitches by Robyn. I won’t pretend to know much about Swedish singer Robyn (real name Robin Miriam Carlsson) but I loved her 2005 self-titled album. The best song (and my favorite) was Robyn & Kleerup’s amazing With Every Heartbeat. I’ll never get sick of that one! Well, I haven’t gotten sick … Continue reading

Music Video Friday: Talking Heads – Once In A Lifetime

Today’s video is Once In A Lifetime by Talking Heads. Because it’s one of the all-time greatest songs. Screw it! I’m not going to keep saving up my favorites. I won’t have this blog forever so I might as well post the best stuff sooner rather than later. If I were forced to choose only … Continue reading

Music Video Friday: Gorillaz – Clint Eastwood & Dirty Harry

Today’s videos are Clint Eastwood & Dirty Harry by Gorillaz to end my Clint Eastwood Week here at Cinema Parrot Disco. I spent the week reviewing some Eastwood films that I’ve just watched for the first time this year. These films are: Play Misty For Me A Fistful Of Dollars For A Few Dollars More … Continue reading

Music Video Friday: Living Colour – Cult Of Personality 

This week’s video is Cult Of Personality by Living Colour from their debut album Vivid. I’ve chosen this video because, well, I just always really liked this song & was in the mood to hear it today! I don’t have a lot to say about it – I only knew one other Living Colour single … Continue reading

Music Video Friday: Faith No More – Last Cup Of Sorrow

Today’s video is Faith No More’s Last Cup Of Sorrow co-starring Jennifer Jason Leigh in a fun take on Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo. I should’ve posted this video the week I posted My Top Ten Jennifer Jason Leigh Movies. Then I thought “Well, I’ll wait until I finally see The Hateful Eight then I can update … Continue reading

Music Video Friday: Peter Gabriel – Sledgehammer 

Today’s video is Peter Gabriel’s Sledgehammer. This song is filthy! On My Top Ten Songs That Are Actually About Sex list that I posted yesterday, this song was my number one. I love Peter Gabriel, although this wasn’t a favorite Gabriel song of mine overall (I prefer Games Without Frontiers, Red Rain & In Your … Continue reading

Music Video Friday: The Cars – You Might Think

Today’s video for Music Video Friday is You Might Think by The Cars. Most every band has been MY FAVORITE for at least a little while. I change my mind a lot. I’m indecisive! Or am I? Anyway, I’ve always gone through phases with bands & The Cars were MY FAVORITE for about two months … Continue reading

Music Video Friday: Metallica – The Unforgiven

Today’s video is Metallica’s The Unforgiven. The first one. The good one. Hell, I didn’t even know there was a third Unforgiven until I looked this video up on YouTube for this post. I was a huge Metallica fan in my teen years but I have to admit that I started losing interest after the … Continue reading

Music Video Friday: Chaka Khan – I Feel For You

Today’s video is Prince’s song I Feel For You as performed by Chaka Khan. It won him the 1985 Grammy Award for Best R&B Song. I think we were all shocked by the death of Prince yesterday. I’m not going to turn this into a big tribute post as I don’t really do those (I … Continue reading

Music Video Friday: Moby – In This World

This week’s video for Music Video Friday is Moby’s In This World. Is it cool to like Moby? Was it ever cool to like Moby? I don’t know (or care). He has a lot of fantastic songs. I especially love Porcelain & South Side with Gwen Stefani and, of course, the absolutely brilliant God Moving … Continue reading
