Armand Van helden - "When the lights go down"

A great house track with rock guitars. The video features characters from your favorite childhood books. This is what happens in the Library after dark.

M.I.A. - "PAPER PLANES" cover-samples Clash - "Straight to Hell"

When I first heard this song, I thought it was an awesome mashup of M.I.A. and the clash. But it's not a mashup, this song is on her awesome album. In this video, two of beastie boys make a cameo, see if you can spot them.

I eventually listened to the Clash song "Straight to Hell" and the M.I.A. "PAPER PLANES" back to back, and realized that they did not sample the Clash, but covered the riff, so it's like a cover-sample.

Here is the original Clash song:

Now you can play them back to back in the comfort of your home or office.

Rock on!

Bonde Do Role - 'Office Boy'

Fun music from Brazil, sort of falls in the M.I.A. genre of music.

Cloud Cuckooland

It's fun new music inspired by old timey music. You know, sort of like Squirrel Nut Zippers.

Watch out for musicans, those sneaky bastards.

This video would be cool even if they did not own a beat down old 1980s Volvo station wagon like I use to own.

Groovy Dancing Girl to Daft Punk's Stronger

This is a classic fan video.

How does she dance so fast? How was that done? She played the song very slow while dancing and filming, then while editing the video, they sped up her movements and played the song at real time. Got it? Now go make your own fan video. DIY.

Hot Chip - "Over and Over"

For me, this song ranks up there with New Order's Blue Monday. This song is that good. It just gets better with repeated listenings.

And here is fan a video, the song is sped up a bit. Fan videos are the democratization of the World that the interwebs are supposed to bring us. Rock on!

Her sunglasses remind of some famous sunglasses:

Datarock - Fa Fa Fa

Warning: This song might be your new favorite song. At one point in this song, about 2 minutes and 21 seconds, my ears go cross eyed with musical joy. Maybe it's just me, but try it one for size and tell me what you think.

Leslie and the Lys - "How we Go Out"

Uh. I can't explain this, you just have to watch it. But I can say my favorite lyric of this song is "...and I am scrap booking everything we do."

Original UpRock!

So I guess this how some danced in the 50s. Dancing like this while Jack Kerouac was on the Road.
"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!”

- Jack Kerouac

Music DJ Z-Tripp.
