Favorite Video of the Week: Gold Chains

Gold Chains – I Come From San Francisco

Ah, the Bay Area! When I first saw this video, I couldn’t help thinking, “This is so San Francisco, kinda lame but sorta cool.” You’ll know what I mean when you watch it.
Cheers to the Bay Area and the folks who live there, I sure never could! (okay, I tried in the East Bay but I lasted less than a year…)

Favorite Video of the Week: Jean Claude Vannier

Jean Claude Vannier – L’Enfant La Mouche Et Les Allumettes

I’ve enjoyed this clip for quite awhile now but with passing of Yves Saint Laurent, I thought this week would be an appropriate time to share it.

Bonus + favor

I’ve included as a bonus my favorite Jean Claude Vannier song, Danse des Mouches noires Gardes du Roi. Like a lot of other music of this genre and time period (the early 70’s) the song features a sort of honky tonk piano playing style. This style of piano showed up again, 20 years later in a lot of house music. Does anyone know if this kind of playing has a particular name?
