It is insane how many music videos on youtube are more entertaining than the real ones that never get played on MTV.

Nothing Better by the Postal Service is a killer song and my video of the week

Dancing

I loooove this remix. It’s like crack, but better!! Pop-up Video told me the lyrics to Busta Rhyme’s Dangerous was originally a public service ad warning kids about drugs (I think it was prescription drugs).

 

This is serious, we can make you delirious, you should have a healthy fear of us, because too much of us is dangerous

 

Listen to Busta and be careful with drugs…wait, what?

 

I might as well share some other bouncy tracks. I like music that makes me do my dance. These do the trick.

1001 Albums is an awesome ad-free Romanian website with 1001 streaming albums (I’m assuming from the name) from 1950-2005. The sound quality is great. 1001 offers a great collection, no ads and doesn’t require you to install any software other than a standard media player. I gave it a whirl this afternoon and absolutely loved it.

 

I started out with Elvis’s 1956 self-titled album and followed that up with Gorillaz 2001 self-title release and ended with Pink Floyd’s 1975 Wish You Were Here. Free music is a beautiful thing. Enjoy!
