The long awaited (and long hyped) music video, “Alive”, from Empire of the Sun was released on Tuesday.
Compilation video of pop culture moments of 1999. There were many. Movies: The Sixth Sense, American Pie, Fight Club, The Matrix, American Beauty, October Sky, Election, 10 Things I Hate About You, Office Space. Music: Korn, Ricky Martin, Santana, Limp Bisquit, Blink 182, The Offspring, Eninem and Kid Rock (when Kid Rock was cool). Television: Family Guy, Futurama, That 70′s Show, Freaks and Geeks and Pokemon. Top it off with the launch of Napster, the Columbine massacre, Slick Willy’s impeachment acquital and the computer glitch doomsday fears.
Today’s Sunday playlist: Eric Saade “Marching”, Chromatic Black “1,2,3,8″, Disclosure ”You & Me”, & Dragonette “Giddy Up”.
Hopefully soon, Daft Punk will stop playing around with short promo ads and recycled clips from their movies and put out an “official” music video. Here’s a live lypsynched clip…click “more” to see the top 40 chart.
Along with Bridegroom, I’m anxious to see Greetings from Tim Buckley. While it’s based on one true event, the rest is fiction. ”Greetings from Tim Buckley” explores Jeff Buckley coming to terms of being abandoned by his legendary father. Cast as Buckley is Gossip Girls Penn Badgley. I imagine that it would be difficult for anyone to portray someone who, because of his untimely and tragic drowning at age 30, has become a mythical hero.
I’m not a fan of NBC’s “Smash”. So much whining! I must give major props to Andy Mientus who blew me away with his cover of Buckley’s “The Last Goodbye”. It was the emotional closing song of Saturday’s episode. I was starting to change my mind about this show…until the last second. Why do they always kill the (cute) gay character?!
