Nina Hagen

Posted by shanoah on June 11, 2010

I thought I’d get away from anime for a minute, and play some songs by a lady named Nina Hagen.

First, here’s a song called Hold Me, with a music video at Jim Morrison’s grave. The line that sticks out in my mind is “I can’t sing a gospel, I’m a white chick…”.

You may think she is somewhat strange after watching that video. And you’d be wrong. She isn’t just somewhat strange, she’s probably the queen of strange. Here is Nina singing Naturträne live at Rockpalast in her native German.

Don’t expect me to explain the pacifiers hanging from her ears, the verging on inhuman shapes her mouth seems to distort into occasionally, or the fact that she’s clucking like a chicken by the end of the song.

That’s half the fun of it.

PoPiPo

Posted by shanoah on June 3, 2010

Just so this site isn’t totally dead, I thought I’d torture everyone with another bizarre anime thing. At first glance, I’d think it was IOSYS, but it’s actually some manner of Vocaloid thing of a song by LamazeP and noya.

The song’s titled in youtube as [Touhou PV] PoPiPo- [Tewi & Reisen], and appears to feature scary-looking vegetable juice.

Little Girls

Posted by shanoah on May 10, 2010

While I’ve played Oingo Boingo’s “Little Girls” here before, I thought this Azumanga Daioh AMV of the song was pretty well done. (And it won first place in the comedy category at Nekocon X) That and I wanted to try to get back in the habit of posting here occassionally…

Not work friendly due to the opening.

Ease On Down the Road

Posted by shanoah on April 12, 2010

And here we are with the Muppet show again. Here we are with Jean Pierre Rampal acting out the story of the Pied Piper. Only the rats weren’t happy with the story and changed it. And then suddenly everyone starts singing a cover of ‘Ease On Down The Road’.

Well, you can tell Jean Pierre is very talented, and the cover isn’t bad. And I love how random it is…

Of course, the song Ease On Down The Road comes from the musical The Wiz, and fun as the version on the Muppet Show might be, it’s hard to beat the version with Michael Jackson & Diana Ross…

Bla Bla Bla

Posted by shanoah on April 5, 2010

Still me. My neat thing for the day/week/whatever is going to have to be this be this music video I found by DJ Gigi D’Agostino with the wonderful title of Bla Bla Bla. It has this nifty stick figure animation going of a guy walking towards a head with sharp pointy teeth.

Apparently the vocal samples are from a UK band named Stretch’s song “Why Did You Do It?”. According to the wikipedia article, the creator of the song said the song was “a piece I wrote thinking of all the people who talk and talk without saying anything”. Which is as good of an explanation of the song as any. It’s pretty catchy, too.

Shuggoth on the Roof

Posted by shanoah on April 2, 2010

Someone seems to have done a full parody of Fiddler on the Roof as Shuggoth on the Roof.

Cthulhu, tentacles, and Arkham, all set to music. Seems pretty well done, too. Here’s a song entitled Tentacles, which gives a fair overview of Arkham:

And here is the song If I Were a Deep One. Nice parody of If I were a Rich Man. Love the lines where he is singing ‘blub blub blub’ so seriously…:

Happy Jack

Posted by shanoah on March 26, 2010

Not sure how long we can stay on zombies, so just to get things rolling again, since there haven’t been any posts in a few days, I thought I’d post something totally unrelated. No yoga involved. Don’t think I can claim the musicians as Zombies, either. Shining Happy Zombies Holding Hands? Nah, we’ve done enough REM here for the moment.

In any case, I thought I’d play a song by the Who named Happy Jack. This is the official music video for it, featuring some thieves, some cake, and a policeman.

Zombie Yoga

Posted by shanoah on March 22, 2010

Well, you know, you can still do some of the things you did in life as a zombie, Sean.

Check out this video of a zombie Yoga class being held outdoors in New York. It must have really freaked some people out…

Brain Damage

Posted by shanoah on March 20, 2010

Well, you know, if people try to eat your brains, you’re likely to end up with Brain Damage. 🙂

Which, of course, brings us back to Pink Floyd. As it happens, I have played Brain Damage on the blog before, but that was back in 2008, so I think I can risk repeating it. Besides, that was with Douglas Adams, and this is a different concert, so it’s more as you’d normally hear it.

Mother *uckers

Posted by shanoah on March 19, 2010

Well, this theme seems to be going from a mother tribute theme to a mother *ucking theme, so, as such, I thought I’d contribute this song. The unforgettable duo, Flight of the Conchords, came up with a song with the name Mother *uckers that I thought would be appropriate. Or inappropriate, as the case may be.

Lots of amusing things going on in this video. But there always are with these guys. Video courtesy of Reasonist42, btw.
