ELO’s Jeff Lynne With More Hair Coming Out of His Head Than Previously Thought Humanly Possible

I’m on an ELO binge right now, so you all need to watch this.

The Monks Monk Out on German Television

Well, after all that Meredith Monk, let’s have some other Monks. As in The Monks, in some amazing footage from German television in 1966.  (I think this is the show that became Beat Club.)

As you’ve no doubt noticed, these dudes actually shaved divots into their hair in order to look like monks. That’s commitment.

More Monks. You’ll have to excuse the interminable bilingual introduction to the first one.

There’s more live footage of The Monks floating around on Youtube as well; it’s all great.

Oll Raigh!

Italian pop star sings a song in gibberish that’s supposed to sound like English with an American drawl (and which occasionally seems to lapse into actual English). Not only do I love the, er, “lyrics,” but I love that relentless backing track. And of course the video, which combines two “live” performances of the song on Italian TV.

I know, this was big on the Internets a couple of years ago, and I should move on. But I love this song. I could listen to it on repeat for ten hours, and maybe I will.

Hold something!
