Tom's Highly Unscientific Top Ten in Video Form!

1) "You've Done It Again, Virginia" by The National - This is from the Black Cab Sessions. Amazing song.

2) "A-Punk" by Vampire Weekend - The BRILLIANT Garth Jennings video.

3) "Dancing Choose" by TV On The Radio

4) "DLZ" by TV On The Radio - Someone politicised this song on YouTube! Who'd'a thunk it?

5) "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa" by Vampire Weekend - Another splendid Richard Ayoade video for Vampire Weekend. They have some amazing videos.

6) "M79" by Vampire Weekend - A video of a live performance of M79 laughingly labelled on YouTube as "High Quality". There is also a great internet debate at the bottom of the video which goes along these lines...

Yakslipper: "Quit declaring "high quality" when your recordings are god awful."

blinkuhx3 (the poster): "you don't have to watch them. most of them are good. i like consistency. and currently, i possess freedom of speech."

Yakslipper: "Freedom of speech works both ways. And, by the way, the quality is very bad."

Dudes! Let's agree to disagree!

7) "Listen To Your Body Tonight" by Black Kids - A dramatic reading of this song. I think it gets the mood across.

8) "Ragged Wood" by Fleet Foxes - The wonderful Carleton Singing Knights of Carleton College in Northfield, MN take on this lovely song.

9) "Red Dress" by TV On The Radio - A fairly shonky live version of the funkiest song on "Dear Science,".

10) "Campus" by Vampire Weekend - Amber Kipp made a version of this song with a Bob Dylan vibe. WINNER!


Great live version of Spoon's "Finer Feelings"! A wonderful song that I can't rave about enough!
