July 13th, 2011 Videos Of The Week

"Performing" on "TV Shows" is this week's theme!

LIVE VIDEO OF THE WEEK: "No More Heroes" by The Stranglers on Top Of The Pops

No, there's no Travis Touchdown. I know, I'm upset too.

Unfortunately, I couldn't find a full version of said performance on Top Of The Pops, but one thing of note, is that at 1:41 in the video, Hugh Cornwell is playing air guitar, but the song keeps on going. Top Of The Pops always has their acts pretend to play over the song, and a couple other artists have goofed around like that during their sets, such as Green Day, in their first performance in '94, Billie Joe Armstrong wrote "Who Am I Fooling Anyway?" on a T-shirt.

I think this song would work really well in Rock Band, especially with the keyboard section, and I don't think anyone has anything to bitch about. Listening to some of the other Stranglers songs, the bass really does lead the way on a fair bit of them.

MUSIC VIDEO OF THE WEEK: "Brainpower" by The Freezerpop Freezepop

I was listening to the Mega 64 podcast while working on some new RBN stuff and I thought, "Hey, didn't these guys do a music video for Freezepop?"

It's pretty funny and the budget seems through the roof coming from Mega64.

Interesting they use the original, full synth version, as opposed to the Rock Band version where the lead synth is electric guitar.

And it's not the first time Mega 64 had Freezepop on their channel. For example, in The Freakout Theory video, you can hear a Game Boy rendition of "Science Genius Girl". Also, their Cosplayers series use the inter:sect mix of "Parlez Vous Freezepop?"
