This is yet another video-posting…another one recycled from someone else’s blog. I don’t have as much time these days as I usually do so you’ll have to excuse the laziness.

Remember back when Boyz II Men and Mariah Carey made a song together called “One Sweet Day” that was played on radio stations at least 50 times a day at its peak popularity? Back then, I was a kid who didn’t buy CD’s (I think tapes were still widely used too), had no internet, and didn’t have MTV. So I didn’t even know the title of the song for a while. But I’d hear it all the time, and I understood the chorus as:

…And I know eventually we’ll be together…ONCE WE’RE DEAD!
(instead of “one sweet day”)

In the context of the song it totally makes sense! And that’s how I understood it and sang along with it as. I think it was a very excusable mistake.

The point is, it’s very easy to misinterpret song lyrics — people do it all the time. But while my error was one line of the song, I’ve never seen it done with virtually every line of a song. Someone decided to write out the misinterpreted lyrics of Christina Aguilera’s “Ain’t No Other Man” and make it into a video, complete with visual aids:


Don’t watch the video anymore. I discovered it has greatly and rapidly diminishing returns. Well, looking up the lyrics is probably to blame…I couldn’t help it.

Looks like I’m back to posting a youtube video with every post now too. I’ve just recently started stealing whatever people have posted on their blog. Yeah, it might be lazy, but it means I don’t have to work as hard…yeah….haha (But seriously, don’t you hate it when those spam blogs do it?)

I found this video on Yoshke’s blog. He used a much more…racy line of the lyrics for his post though.

Song of the Day:

Wilco – “Misunderstood” / (album link)

In the spirit of retrospective looks back on the year, here are some memorable youtube videos I came across this year. And because of my very spotty memory, by “this year” I mostly mean “whatever I remember from the last 4 months or so.” Without further ado, I bring to you my top 6 personal youtube favorites of 2007! In random order! Woooooo! I…don’t know what we’re yelling about! Loud Noises!!

1) You think your wedding day was/will be stressful? Watch this and count your blessings:

2) You think you know what “androgynous” means? Give it some more thought after watching this (you have to watch at least to the 1 minute mark):

3) I never knew birds had such rhythm. Perfectly synchronized foot/leg swinging and stomping. This bird is a natural. His/Her infectious dancing spreads in a matter of seconds to the bird at the left of the screen in the background.

4) Ever wonder why some white chicks (or any young girl…or guy) flash up gang signs whenever a camera is within sight? This next guy pondered that same question — and wrote a song about it. (oh…watch for the coffee mug. it basically pushes the video to awesomeness level.)

5) I love nerds who love sports. (So yes, I love myself.) Paul Brogan artfully remixes Fergilicious, Mims’ “This Is Why I’m Hot,” and Nelly Furtado to make some great comments on the state of the NBA.

6) This next video is one I used to watch at least once everyday to make me smile. Now I watch it every week. At least. “Baby juggah” “Blood-duh” “Not funny!”


I know I’m forgetting at least 17 other ones. So if you happen to know any more, please let me know. I cannot let the year wind down without giving those other videos some recognition.

Songs of the Day (follow links to download page):

Spoon – “I Turn My Camera On”
Okkervil River – “Our Life Is Not a Movie or Maybe”
