Boys Keep Swinging

I know that posts comprised entirely of video clips are infinitely lame, but since I'll have so little time this weekend to write anything coherent, - what with my busy schedule of drinking in public and avoiding romantic ruination - this post will have to be just that: a sampling of clips that make me proud I have a gay sensibility. Not that you actually have to sleep with your own gender to have one of those, but it certainly helps.


David Bowie - "Boys Keep Swinging"

This is my unofficial theme for the weekend. Hopefully I can keep this going well into next week.

The Andrea True Connection - "More, More, More"

One of the first disco songs I ever remember hearing as a kid and still one of my favorites. I'm just waiting until someone finally decides to make a shot for shot remake of this video. Incidentally... Andrea True's a former porn star. No wonder it's so good.

Les Yeux Sans Visage in 4 Minutes set to Portishead

Plastic surgery + the macabre + psychic family drama = everything I ever wanted in a movie.
__________

Dolly Parton - "Baby I'm Burnin'"

I considered making this the theme song to my Pride, but then I thought, "I really don't want to feel any burning sensations this particular weekend."

Who's That Girl? Opening Credits

Really... why the fuck not? Madonna should be so animated all the time.

Linda Ronstadt - "It's So Easy"

Jeez, you're tellin' me sister. And despite this song being hijacked by Brokeback Mountain, it always reminds me of my mother (she was a big Ronstadt fan). Right about this time, Ronstadt's voice was pretty much perfection.

And just for good measure...


Madonna - "Deeper and Deeper"

I've always liked this song, but this video feels especially poignant ever since I actually met Udo Kier in much a similar setting. I'm pretty sure he tried to hypnotize me as well.
