Found on the Front Page: Monday Music Videos

PostThu Mar 14, 2013 8:10 pm

You know you want to see music videos that have cars in them. Why wait for them to appear on Monday? Hat tip to editor Robert Emslie for indulging our shared joy at seeing automobiles on screen while music plays.

This one's been in my head because we're having a lamb roast soon and have been trying to come up with a name for the event. So far ding-a-ding-dang-your-lamb-a-long-ling-lamb is losing out to wham-bam-thank-you-lamb. Nonetheless this has been stuck in my head, features hot rods, monster trucks, NASCAR and drag racing. And Gibby Haynes.

Hat tip to TTAC commenter VerbalKint for bringing this one up on a similar thread. (I can do research!)Nash Metro Taxicab? For a long time Stan Ridgway's "The Big Heat" was the only vinyl record I owned. In fact, it was the last vinyl record I ever owned, because right now I can't find it.

Ah Ha!

Thanks Dean (I thought I tried that on my third time editing, but had just pasted it between the tags. pasting then tagging worked, maybe I missed a space or something?)

It's a bit tricky at times.. Stupid youtube removed the "long link" option from the share menu. If it's just single video then copying the address bar will work. If you're copying the link from your own playlist then copy everything before "&list...." And add http:// in the beginning. And make sure it isn't https.


These videos are from way back when Napster was still alive and kicking and it took at least an hour to download one of these. Still some of the best car video with the cars, engine sounds, lyrics and music edited so that they actually work together. Particularly like the intro on the second video, and it might e the best video overall too.
