Though it may not be total utter hotness, how can you not completely enjoy TIM CURRY vamping to a dirty groove seemingly produced by the bored zombie corpse of Marc Bolan? Plus you get David Sanborn on sax!
Perhaps the best use of Q Lazzarus’ “Good-bye Horses” since Buffalo Bill filmed himself transgendrifying inside the depths of his basement disco lair. Too bad I now associate the song with two of the creepiest things ever recorded, as it’s a killer track.

Outstandingly crisp video of Otis Redding performing the following setlist in Paris on his birthday (parts II-IV after the break):
Part I: Introduction, Shake, Don’t Mess With Cupid
Part II: My Girl, I’ve Been Loving You Too Long (for me, the highlight of the set), Respect
Part III: My Lover’s Prayer, Can’t Turn You Loose, Satisfaction
In Part IV, a bunch of French folks in the audience sing “Happy Birthday” to Otis. A thousand thanks to whomever posted this. For more live Otis, snatch In Person at the Whisky a Go Go.
Yeah yeah, you pulled off an epic swindle by manufacturing and marketing punk as something that is neither manufactured nor marketed, but, more importantly, you are responsible for this music video. Pretty rad legacy, dude.
I don’t know who Aeroplane is, but if there was ever a night for some house/garage influenced type stuff it’s tonight — borderline totally warm, but still a little crisp out. Feels good.

Aw yeah! Nobody makes fun music videos anymore. Perhaps I can ride the hot tub time machine back to 1985, hop the Concorde to Paris, and totally get down with this posse.

A rare performance of “Electric Intercourse,” a track that has bounced around a few of Prince’s long list of shelved projects, and, as far as I know, has yet to see the light of day. Recorded during a Minnesota Dance Theater benefit show at First Avenue on August 3, 1983.

Erykah Badu hat tips the P-Funk Allstars‘ “Hydrualic Pump” (and nips a kaleidoscopic jones from Funkadelic’s first album too) for the lead single on her holy-crap-will-this-ever-get-released New Amerykah Part II: Return of the Ankh.
Scope the official, full screen-ish, infinitely looping version of the video, complete with Hitler/O’Reilly/SOTU/sock puppet intro, on her website.
