Literal Music Videos

Over at And Rightly So they posted a sample of "literal music videos" - YouTube clips that seek to reconcile the lyrics of the song with the actual, crazy activity you see on the screen.

When done right it's a blast. When done poorly it's just cra*. The best of them seem to be the product of DustoMcNeato. Let's see if you agree.

Let's introduce the idea with an oldie - The Monkees Daydream Believer.
"And then I dance like Axel Rose/In my fruity sixties clothes". Priceless!

Here's one that's just made for the format: Bonnie Tyler's Total Eclipse of the Heart.

OMG...I'm cracking up over here after watching The Monkees!

Off to watch Bonnie Tyler...

That one was even better!

But seriously...what is up with that video? Is that really the video that goes with that song? Scary.

I've always loved the song though.

These are so funny! I'm definitely going to share them with some friends.
