(Jubilee Guilty Pleasure!) Video of the Moment #831: Phil Collins

Editor’s note: do not adjust your screen. Yes, we’re airing some of our (and some of your!) favourite song guilty pleasures in video form this Jubilee weekend. The bands were featuring are largely not the kind we write about here on TGTF, but we wanted to do something new and cool over this 4-day weekend. Come along for the crazy ride and enjoy.

I’m refraining from using the obvious source location of this band and their biggest hit that Ben suggested and just let it speak for itself. Surely the only song to include the foods “mussels” and “vegemite” in its lyrics, take it away, Men at Work and one of the kookiest videos ever made.

There seems to be a lot of misplaced hate for Phil Collins out there. Why all the hate, people? Except maybe some people can’t stand that a man shorter and balder than you is infinitely more talented and richer than you will ever be? Beyond Genesis and his own mega career over the years, once Phil got into the Disney tunes, he assured his cheese status forever. I’m glad Ben suggested this one because it got me to thinking to those days when I tried to commit these lyrics to memory and until a cousin pointed it out was incorrectly singing,”Stu-Stu-Studio!” Ah yes, those were the days.

Don’t pretend that you don’t sing along to this song when it comes up on the lite rock station: we know you do.

Video of the Moment #829: Cosmo Jarvis

Somehow I don’t think Cosmo Jarvis sleeps. he seems to be constantly writing and putting out new music and videos. The latest from him, in the form of single ‘Love This’, he describes like this:

It’s basically about doing what ever suits you best even if if means alienating yourself from a demographic that is widely recognized as being ‘good’ or ‘normal’. It’s about ‘if it works, use it’.

It’s also about the importance of re-assessing moral values and measurements in a time where older values are not just irrelevant to the way that people operate, but potentially harmful to society. The ideal standard of ‘good’ is no longer achievable and so people should no longer be measured relative to that scale.

Got all that? Good. Then watch the humourous promo video that goes with the song below. The single for ‘Love This’ drops on the 2nd of July.

(Jubilee Guilty Pleasure!) Video of the Moment #828: The B52s

Athens, Georgia’s most globally famous export is R.E.M. but the B52s come in as a close second. The band – with larger than life personalities individually and even louder outfits and hair – didn’t have much luck with the charts until ‘Love Shack’, an ode to the cabin in the woods where they first thought of one of their first singles, ‘Rock Lobster’. When they filmed the video, they had a then unknown RuPaul dancing in the background. Get your best beehive ready and watch the video below.

Long before ‘Faith’ and when he got arrested for being indecent in a public loo, George Michael was one half of the squeaky clean Wham! The music video for ‘Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go’ was just as big as the song, it seemed. The inexplicable ‘Choose life’ shirts, tropical coloured short shorts, the glow in the dark jumpers of the backing singers, Andrew Ridgeley’s crazy flapping hat…what’s not to love?
