I’m just gonna leave this right here. Actual lyrics (not that it helps) I am he as you are he as you are me And we are all together See how they run like pigs from a gun See how they fly I’m crying Sitting on a cornflake Waiting for the van to come Corporation […]Read more "Word Salad Wednesdays – The Beatles: I am the Walrus"
Jeez, spoiled for choice with these guys, their entire lyrical output appears to have been produced by an epileptic twelve-year-old with Tourette’s. The music may have been cool but the lyrics were about as sensible as the concept of Chinese democracy. I really hope these were written under the influence of the shitty namesake wine, […]Read more "Word Salad Wednesday: Guns ‘n Roses – Night Train"

Saving the best stuff for near the end and this is one of my absolute favorites. Dee Snyder and Alice Cooper, plus a cameo by zombie makeup king and sometimes actor Tom Savini (who also did all the makeup effects for the video). In addition to Alice, other (off-screen) musical guests on the song included […]Read more "Monster, Monster – Be Chrool to Your Scuel"
Come on, you knew this had to be on here somewhere. The long version too. MJ may have been a sick puppy, but this short film by John Landis really was one of the first to bring home the full potential of the music video as complete short form film, with production values rivaling those […]Read more "Monster, Monster – Thriller"
