Post your favorite songs/video's here. I'll start it off.

Some early Rem. Live on David letterman 1984.

And a sad song from The Smiths "That joke isn't funny anymore" (Live) (think of mike doing his morrisey impression).

Well my favorite music artist is Weird Al. And one of my favorite things he does is his polkas. And this one happens to be set to images from "Lost" for some reason, but enjoy!

Ooh, Weird Al Polkas ROCK!!!

My favorite is "Polka Your Eyes Out", from Off the Deep End

There's no video for it, so here's a fan-made vid using the original music videos...

Proof that no matter how much you suck, you just can't ruin a Zeppelin song.

Yes you can. Sean P Puff Puffy Daddy Diddy Coombs did when he raped Kashmir (and with the help of Jimmy Page, too - what a tragedy).

I think Dread Zeppelin are pretty good, actually. It's not the easiest task in the world to rework a tune into another genre, and they do it well enough on the whole (even if that performance wasn't exactly stunning).

But Easy Star All Stars do it better still.

I must reluctantly admit to liking Puffy and Jimmy Page's "Come With Me," if only on an ironic level. I love Zeppelin, but I've always found Kashmir to be bloated and repetitive. It should really only be about 4 minutes long at the most.

I'd heard of Dread Zeppelin, but wasn't familiar with their music, and that clip doesn't exactly make me curious to learn more. For a fun Zep cover, find Richard Cheese & Lounge Against The Machine's "Stairway To Heaven."

Here's Sweden's The Soundtrack Of Our Lives, who really should've made a bigger splash in the states by now: Sister Surround (US). I love the subtle goofiness of the American video. Perhaps our esteemed Teaflax can tell us more about TSOOL?

You blaspheme. Kashmir is solid, beginning to end, one of Zep's three or four greatest moments. Five-star, unmatched and unsurpassed. IMNHO.

I find Mr Cheese quite poor when compared to Mike Flowers, Moog Cookbook or Paul Anka's absolutely superb Rock covers album from last year (or was it 2004?). Badly recorded and poorly arranged and done with far too much ironic distance to be interesting. Even Nouvelle Vague and Pastel Vespa do this better.

I dunno. I think they're pretty good for what they are doing, but I'm not particularly interested. A little too much Standard Rock for me to care, not enough to annoy me.

To stay on topic, songs by some of the bands that have completely bowled me over at some time in my life:

Gentle Giant - Knots
Prefab Sprout - Goodbye Lucille #1 (Johnny, Johnny)
Squarepusher - Coopers World (Live)
Pure Reason Revolution - The Intention Craft
