outlandish

August 11, 2009 § 4 Comments

since my daughter insists on me watching an inordinate amount of music videos lately…i am sharing some of my favorites from ‘melody tunes-all english all the time’ melody tunes is a channel dedicated to playing the shittiest high cost videos available.  seriously right now they have that shakira song: she wolf – on non stop rotation.

these two are from outlandish.

this one just makes me feel good…

and damn.  something relevant on melody tunes?

———————————–

this third and final video.  funky arabs.  there are so many things wrong with this video/song.

why are they shouting ‘refugee’ at the beginning? did lauryn and wyclef get back together for this special treat…thank god.

what makes this guy so revolutionary?

the look in jad’s eyes throughout the video???

and wait did that woman inject botox in her eye in the bathroom?

mysteries…

    um yeah, that ‘funky arabs’ thing? that’s just icky. way to overhype the other side of arab stereotypes (esp in regards to the women) in some misguided effort to say not all Arabs are terrorists.

    Outlandish is very cool. some of their stuff is too pop for me. but one thing i really like about them (they are not all Muslim, btw) is that they mix spanish in 🙂
