Reminisce! Weird-ass Videos!

Here's one from the vaults:

Remember the video for the song "Wild Wild West" by the Escape Club? It had some kind of bizarre arms that were clapping, but the arms were just long extensions of each other, aka not attached to people. Freaky. And lame!

With that, I dedicate this thread to all the weird videos of years past. Please join in with your own recollections.

Livin' in the '80's, heading for the '90's.


She's so mean, but I don't care. I love her eyes and her wild, wild hair.


Yes, as you can see, I remember that song. Funny stuff, I havent thought of it for ages.

Strange. I was thinking of more videos to add, and the two that came to my head were Safety Dance and Rocket. Never seen the Van Halen one, though.

Other strange ones:
Bedtime Stories--Madonna
When Doves Cry--Prince (more cheesy mirror effects!)
One--Metallica (not only weird but frightening! S...O...S...)
Rapture--Blondie

Thank you for saying that. I was feeling like a for starting this "lame" thread.

I did think of some more weird videos, though.

Land of Confusion-Genesis (or was it just Phil?)
Here Comes Your Man--the Pixies (the weirdest lip synching ever!)
That one where Michael Jackson grabs his crotch a lot, moans, and destroys the car. Actually, a good number of his have their weird moments.

Most things by Aphex Twin. The whole 'Come To Viddy' video is decidedly strange

I think it's "The Way You Make Me Feel" where he jumps on the car, and is wearing some kind of cast, come to think about it.

To name all the videos where he grabs his crotch and moans would take me all day.

*smiles, thinking about the extended version of the Bad video where he keeps running around screaming "HO!"

It also occurs to me that the Tool video where the meat is going through the metal pipe is weird.

The one that Heartland Girl is referring to is the one for "Black and White".

I agree with a lot of these-"Come To Daddy", "Rockit"...yes.

Some others to add:

"Ashes To Ashes"-David Bowie (this one is just...out there)
"Black Hole Sun"-Soundgarden
U2's "Numb" and "Lemon" videos.
"Once In A Lifetime" and "Burning Down The House"-Talking Heads
"Closer"-Nine Inch Nails
"Don't Come Around Here No More"-Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

And Queens of the Stone Age's "No One Knows" is pretty odd, too...anyone seen that one?

Have you seen the video for the new song "Go With The Flow"? It has to be seen to be apreciated...much weirder than "No One Knows"

Also any video by Tool is strange...in a good way.
