Music Monday Meets Anti-Cuteness Tuesday on Thursday

Reader jdub sent in a tip about literal videos, where the action of the video is narrated instead of the song lyrics. You'll see what I mean in a second.

Tears for Fears, Head Over Heels:

Rick Astley, Never Gonna Give You Up:
(Strikes one bad chord with a comment about Michael J. Fox but otherwise very funny)

Apropos of nothing but came across two Duran Duran videos too good not to share.

Girls on Film:

Planet Earth:

I really love how they're so into their New Romantic look here. The ruffle on Nick Rhodes' shirt threatens to engulf his entire head.

Reader, while I was looking for something cute to show you, I instead found Joaquin Phoenix, the love of my loins, going down in flames on Letterman.

To his credit, Letterman did try to engage Phoenix, who at best can be described as not himself. Eventually, he gives up and lets 'er rip: "Can you tell us about your days with the Unabomber? Joaquin, I'm sorry you couldn't be here tonight." Since I love Joaquin this is a little painful to watch, especially when you watch the 2005 Letterman clip that showcases his charmingly adorable self. Whatever is going on with the guy, let it pass quickly.

In other not cute, but still somehow so right news, Mickey Rourke is dating Courtney Love. Professional Critic approves of these two slightly batty, plastic surgery-mauled messes getting together.

NO WAY!!!!! Mickey Rourke is way too good for her. That has to be a publicity stunt because........come on!!!!It's just too perfect. yeah and what is your take on phoenix? and what's up with casey affleck filming him everywehre? do you think it's some kind of social experiment/hoax? it's all so weird-lynchb

You think so? I think they make sense as a couple. Courtney seems to be one walking publicity stunt, it's so hard to tell what's genuine about her. Genuine crazy, that's what.

Not sure about Joaquin. Something seems to have happened to him, something not good. I haven't even tried to find him rapping ... I'm afraid.
