Cool Music Clips

Strings and voices – lets go! The latest cool music clips that crossed my path:

Guy in funny hat plays trance on guitar – wow…it starts slow and picks up, (the site from which it is embedded is somewhat unreliable so apologies if it doesn’t play correctly – try hitting the play icon a couple of times…)


Next, a cover of Michael Jackson’s Smooth Criminal by 2Cellos, the Croatian breakout cello players Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser (U.S. television debut on Glee a month or so ago, playing this version),


Here’s another one by them – their arrangement of Welcome to the Jungle by Guns ‘N Roses,


Now, guitar shredder girl – starts slow and hits it at about :34,


Here is a clip from the Korean version of American Idol / X Factor / Whoever’s Got Talent, etc etc, but check this one out –


Speakin’ of talent shows, here’s a French show clip,


That’s Amaury Vassili who represented France at the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest with the song Sognu (did not win).

Best Erotic Music Videos of 2011

Following hot on the heels of the post: Best X-Rated Music Video of All Time, I present for you a different group – the best erotic music videos of 2011, an-end-of-the-year best thing, and limited to just 2011.

These have no explicit sex, so I characterize them as erotic or sensuous. My qualifiers were that the video/music had to first appear in 2011 and that the main performer in the video also had to be the main musical performer – so no erotic video clips set to an unrelated music track, or rappers or rockers singing with strippers around them etc etc. But we’ll do some of those another time.

First, and I think the easy choice for best of the year, some music to tie her up by, Claire Tchaikowski, “Those Thousand Seas”

Claire Tchaikowski’s debut album Those Thousand Seas is available on iTunes, Amazon and cdbaby.
Betony Vernon‘s book The Boudoir Bible – Sexual Common Sense and the Joy of Ceremony will be published soon.


Second, some French dance/pop with Charlie M, “Jeux Ma Muse”,



Third, pop come-back, “Criminal” by Britney Spears, and featuring her new fiance, Jason Trawick,  with some slithery hot action in the shower, and guns…



Fourth, “‘Til The End Of Time ft. V” by Timothy Bloom, which I featured in the post 5 Best Sensuous Couples Video Clips,



That featured image at the top of the post, by the way, is Christina Aguilera having a big ‘ol time in her music video for the track “Dirrty” released in 2002. The music video was directed by David LaChapelle. It depicts what was described as “a post-apocalyptic orgy”.The video opens with Aguilera gearing up and riding a motorcycle into a nightclub. Wearing a bikini and fuck-me chaps, she is lowered from a cage into a boxing ring and dances. If only the music video for “Moves Like Jagger” this year were half as hot, it’d be in this post too. HERE is a link to the “Dirrty” video if you would like to reminisce.

Best X-rated Music Video of All Time

After extensive investigation, I present several candidates for the best X-rated music video, XXX-rated music video, adult music video, explicit music video….whatever your phrase may be, of all time.

To qualify, a music video had to be more than just NSFW with bare boobs, or even full frontal nudity – as delightful as those may be – and actually be a release by a music artist or band, not just a mashup of hardcore video with an added music track.

And what does the featured image above (from a performance of the opera Salome) have to do with all this? See the footnote* at the end of the post.

Here are the candidates in no particular order, and representing several different music genres:

#1 – Industro-rock, Rammstein: Pussy


#2 – British rap, Skepta: All Over The House

#3 – Alt rock, Placebo, Protège-Moi


#4 – acid-rave sci-fi punk-funk, Klaxons, Twin Flames

(is that one weird enough for ya?)


#5 – hip-hop/rock/metal, Hollywood Undead, Undead (rare completely uncensored version)


#6 – alt rock, 30 Seconds to Mars (feat. the now very famous Jared Leto), Hurricane


If you know a good one I missed, comment away.

*Now about that pic at the top and Salome – the image is of soprano Francesca Patanè, daughter of famous Italian conductor Giuseppe Patanè performing the lead role of Salome in a production that opened the 2007 season of Teatro dell’Opera di Roma. I nominate a hardcore version of Salome – sex, violence, eroticism, drama, singing, and music…what’s not to love? – for the ultimate best X-rated music video: so who’s up for creating that one?

Here’s another couple of  images of Patanè from that production,

In reviewing her later performance as Puccini’s Turandot, The Observer wrote:

Francesca Patanè’s Turandot was spectacular.  There is a purity in her voice which is spine-tingling and this is accompanied by the ability to produce enormous power.

Let’s get that in an explicit music video – someone start a petition!

5 Best Sensuous Couples Video Clips

These are 5 of the best sensuous video clips I’ve found lately featuring couples:

1) The Weeknd : “What You Need” (NSFW Hasselhoff edit)
by Gunnar Andersson,


2) ‘Til The End Of Time ft. V by Timothy Bloom, music video,


3) Quatre by rebobine for Wallpaper Magazine,


The last two are product advert/commercial clips.

4)  Devendra Banhart at the Rainbow House – Director’s Cut, by Lisa Eisner for Oliver Peoples,


5) Chanel ft Nicole Kidman, directed by Baz Luhrmann, and with Brazilian actor Rodrigo Santoro,


If you think that clip is a bit reminiscent of Moulin Rouge, why yes, Luhrmann directed Moulin Rouge.

and here’s one last bonus clip – more hardcore for a happy ending…
