Interesting Youtube Clips

Recommended Posts

For those clips which people will find interesting.

As examples (I'll post them later when on a PC):

Annie Nightingale interviewing Paul Simon whilst thinking Art Garfunkel wrote half of the songs (I have some sympathy, so did I)

Andy Partridge zoning out on stage with XTC in France, and never touring again.

It's easier to sum up what it's not:

anything that would appear on You've Been Framed, It'll be Alright on the Night, those American "ten best fails" tapes, Russian dashboard cams of hilarious accidents, Ronnie Pickering.

All I would suggest is keep them short if you want people to watch them.

Ha ha - cheers Sarah, I hadn't seen this version with a laughter track, it makes it much funnier.

The irony is that he believed people did think Garfunkel was behind his classics. He became obsessed about the standing ovations Garfunkel received on Bridge over Troubled Water...it was HIS song not Garfunkel's

I always suspected that interview was a deliberate wind up by Annie Nightingale.

Paul Simon has long been regarded as a 'song thief' by many in the British musical community a fact which Nightingale was almost certainly aware given even I knew of this reputation when I was a teenager in the 1970s.

In fact it became such a cliche that even the Onion sent it up

The definitive collection of 1970s fashions and dance steps courtesy of Soul Train

For music pedants the track to the original video is actually Dr Funkenpumpe's 2009 remix of the Pioneers excellent 1973 cover of the Temptations 1972 hit

Astonishing this went out on telly in the nineties (1:25 - 1:45 is a real 'did I really just hear that moment?' if you can't stomach it all)
