“Loosely Based on Real Life” (VIDEO Playlist) by Richard F. Yates

frowny bug

Even though my last playlist didn’t generate much interest* (and it was a DAMN GOOD playlist, too! Do yourself a favor and give it a listen!!!!,) I’ve still put together ANOTHER playlist, this time of VIDEOS that I really like. It’s shorter than the last playlist—only 13 songs instead of 100—and each of these songs has a video to go with it that is either funny or visually striking or contains some great costumes or something that makes me really enjoy it. (Hopefully, you will, too!)

*[Funny thing about that lack of interest in my post, you’d think it would convince me to STOP making playlists or drawing pictures or writing silly stories—but NOPE! I make them, whatever they are, because I’m always drawing or writing or putting together music lists (these activities are how I have fun,) and NOW-A-DAYS I share them, too, once they’re finished. If nobody notices what I post, that’s okay. I still had fun making it—I LOVE making stuff: telling stories and drawing monsters and ghosts and creating playlists for my iPod and writing reviews (of books or comics or movies or t.v. shows or what-have-you…)—and I’ve been doing this stuff for decades. (This is not an exaggeration. Even before I got access to the internet, I used to make ZINES, (back in the 1980s and ’90s,) full of stories and art and playlists and reviews, and I’d mail them to people—some who WANTED copies of my zines, MOST to folks who didn’t want them (or didn’t know who I was or care about my bad art and silly stories or my tastes in books or music…) The indifference of the world didn’t stop me THEN, and it’s not going to stop me now! Of course, if a FEW people are entertained by something I’ve put together, THAT’S GREAT! Bonus points!!!]

So, here is the address where you can find this playlist (on YouTube):

And these are the songs that I included:

  1. Fishbone – “Party at Ground Zero”
  2. Death Grips – “I’ve Seen Footage”
  3. Kraftwerk – “Music Non Stop”
  4. Devo – “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”
  5. Faith No More – “We Care a Lot”
  6. The Fun Boy Three – “Our Lips Are Sealed”
  7. Madness – “Driving in My Car”
  8. The Kinks – “Apeman”
  9. Love & Rockets – “No New Tale to Tell”
  10. Skrillex – “First of the Year (Equinox)”
  11. Dogblood – “Chella Ride”
  12. Ninja Sex Party – “Danny Don’t You Know”
  13. “Weird Al” Yankovic – “I Love Rocky Road”

That’s it for this list! Feel free to leave some feedback! Is there a track LIKE any of these that you enjoy and think I might find entertaining as well? Let me know! I’m always in the market for a new tune to listen to!
