Alphaville: Forever Young Robotech Mix genre: Tuned Out & Video-Philes

This is an interesting animation video set to an old song, "Forever Young" from the group Alphaville. I like the song enough that I would probably like it with just about any video.

Brokeback Mountain - "Goodbye My Lover" Video genre: Gaylingual & Tuned Out & Video-Philes

This video is a compilation of scenes from Brokeback Mountain set to the James Blunt song "Goodbye My Lover", one of the best songs (IMO) off of his CD Back To Bedlam.

Slave To The Rhythm (Adult Content) genre: Tuned Out & Video-Philes

The following video was first released in 1985. It is the music video for "Slave To The Rhythm" by Grace Jones. The video was produced by Jean-Paul Goude who Jones later married. An artist, Goude produced only five music videos...all for Jones songs. This particular video was a nominee for Best Female Video in 1986 at the Video Music Awards. Given the year the video was produced, it remains a visually remarkable piece of filming.

Pink: Dear Mr. President genre: Polispeak & Tuned Out & Video-Philes

Pink performs her song "Dear Mr. President" live in NYC. She is tough on the President but she does it in a thoughtful way. I didn't know she was so politically inclined. Good for her.

Lost In Translation Music Video genre: Tuned Out & Video-Philes

I really liked the movie Lost in Translation. It was written by Sofia Coppola, daughter of Francis Ford Coppola, and stars Bill Murray. I recently found this music video that does a good job of capturing the essence of the film. If you haven't seen the movie, I would definitely recommend it.

The White Stripes: The Hardest Button To Button genre: Tuned Out & Video-Philes

I'm off to a slow start this Monday following Easter. I thought I would start the week off with a cool music video. The group is the White Stripes and the song is The Hardest Button To Button. It's not my favorite song but the video is an interesting piece of filming...and the song is growing on me. Those in New York City may recognize some of the shoot locations. I hope everyone had a great weekend.

Its Friday I'm In Love (Updated) genre: Tuned Out

UPDATE:

Mad TV recently did a spoof of the music video of James Blunt's song You're Beautiful. The actual song lyrics appear at the end of this posting. The video is pretty funny. I believe you can find the actual video for the song at the link to James Blunt below.



"Its Friday I'm In Love" is a recurring posting that will appear each Friday here at Thought Theater. The intention of the category "Tuned Out" is to present music that is both appealing and thought provoking. I also enjoy discussing and exchanging perceptions and impressions about the lyrics of songs and I welcome that feedback and discussion. This will also be a place to introduce readers to new and obscure musicians that may need help getting some exposure. Readers are encouraged to post comments about the spotlighted musicians as well as introduce other musicians who could benefit from some added attention.

James Blunt - Back to Bedlam

CD Cover - Back to Bedlam The first artist is by no means obscure. His CD, Back to Bedlam is doing quite well and he was recently the musical guest on Saturday Night Live. His story is engaging and anyone interested in knowing more about James Blunt can go to www.jamesblunt.com to read about him. I've included the lyrics to a song he sang on SNL called You're Beautiful. If you get the chance, take a listen to his music. He has a lot to say.


You're Beautiful 

My life is brilliant.
My love is pure.
I saw an angel.
Of that I'm sure.
She smiled at me on the subway.
She was with another man.
But I won't lose no sleep on that,
'Cause I've got a plan.

You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw you face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never be with you.

Yeah, she caught my eye,
As we walked on by.
She could see from my face that I was,
Fucking high,
And I don't think that I'll see her again,
But we shared a moment that will last till the end.

You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw you face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never be with you.
You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
There must be an angel with a smile on her face,
When she thought up that I should be with you.
But it's time to face the truth,
I will never be with you.
