This topic is like an addiction. Finding Youtube stuff to go with songs you listen to is kinda fun too, though most are dismal quality wannabe things.

One day we can share...

Until then, have a bit more remake fun (no clue if they made real vids, so just the music).

You And Your Sister

I've been a fan of "This Mortal Coil" since a drunken night when I was (very much) younger and I met one of my best friends who let me crash at his place, and tossed on some older coil stuff for me to absorb (and pass out to, since I was a bit of a nuisance while awake). They do all sorts of remakes and new things by folks, but they have gained notoriety for female singers who do a lot of songs (sorta Deliriumish that way). They released a bunch of the original songs they cover in deluxe stuff, so pay for the old fart music if you bother buying any of it. The old artists are amazing in their own.

Just some interesting Baebes that came as a recommended viewing while using You-Tube as a background filler at work that I find to be quite good...

This is one of those "one thing leads to another" happenstance things...

One of my very pretentious roomies has a thing for digging up bootleg albums to buy off of the internet and while rummaging in dusty shops here (with questionable legality for rights to sell such items, I'm sure). I got one such item placed in my lap a little while ago (with a grinning face behind it) that has a pretty good recording of the Tokyo version of a concert I went to a while back, here in Vancouver. I think this was an earlier version from 1998, but the pair did tours together until 2012, and I saw them here in 2001.

This was from the pretty well-known "Face to Face" tour stuff by Sir Elton John and Billy Joel for over a decade. The recording only had songs with Billy in them (some of him covering Elton stuff, and duets with both), but I enjoyed him even more than my all-time favorite in the concert I saw. They both were a hoot to see together (I'm sure you can guess who won the piano duel stuff :P ).

Anywho, I was happily listening to this, then during one song Billy started laughing all the time and I had to figure out why (stuff doesn't make as much sense when you only hear it), so... YouTube to the rescue!

Looks like Spotify has it if you want a listen. The audio version I have is much better quality than the YouTube video (wasn't "released" until 2009), but I had a good laugh at this.

Billy Joel (Feat. Sir Elton "Godzirra" John) - "My Life" [Tokyo 1998]

*Edit* Had to add in the "Sir" title for Elton, as I get reminded of it in a chorus here by everyone, even though only one of them is from there. I'm pretty sure It'd be "Sir John" when using single names, but even uttering his first name gets the correction. NH4, do back me up. I'm only a lowly Canadian! :lol: ).

And a related one for our huggable QA manager, after digging through old stuff...

I meant to do my work today (A day in the country) - From the "Friends" soundtrack in 1971, with some of *coughs* Sir Elton's early amazing stuff (that vocal thing ain't part of it, but it was appropriate :mrgreen: ).
