I've been limiting myself to posting one video per day. This one is so good that I could could barely wait until midnight.

From her 2006 album Ukuyeye, a cover of a Serge Gainsbourg classic with a brilliantly retro video.

This is the last video for "French pop week". Next week will be a bit different.

I've picked Sylvie Vartan, but had a bit of trouble deciding which song to post. I chose Le Locomotion because it's live and captures her charisma pretty well.

This week's theme: Dance crazes of the 60's

We'll begin exactly where we should: The Twist. This video is the Peppermint Twist variant, with its little kick and jump.

The song is named after the Peppermint Lounge.

Putin sings "Blueberry Hill".

This might be longer than you're willing to watch--it's not AWFUL but it is a bit lacking in energy and spontaneity, and the main interest is more like a (Russian) bear dancing: not that he does it well but that he does it at all--but check the screen at 1:44 and 2:57: isn't that Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell? Plus at 1:51 just after the first Goldie/Kurt appearance, that is Kevin Costner standing, clapping along, right?

There might be other celebrities that I missed or I am just not aware of--having stopped paying attention to much of paparzzi-dom for about a decade now.

This is a great performance. Gretchen Wilson and AIC performing Barracuda at a VH1 tribute to Heart.

That was an amazingly spot on imitation of Ann Wilson. I picked another YouTube performance by Gretchen Wilson and she certainly has the vocal chops to do it.

Yeah. I had looked for that performance a few times and never found it. I'm really glad it's on You Tube now. It was cool that Nancy Wilson came out and played.

I've been meaning to sample more of Gretchen Wilson, but i never got around to it. Maybe when i have some time this week.

Here's video #2 of "60's dance craze" week. If you were wondering why I didn't have a Chubby Checker video for the Twist, now you know.

Anne Hathaway has a surprise for the chorus of PS 22 of Staten Island.

Here is one example of why: "1000 Oceans" by Tori Amos.

So what's the theme for this week? You'll either love it or hate it: Mexican rock bands of the 60's. Their names alone just kill me. For instance: Los Belmonts.

Pretty good song, though: Amarrado, a Spanish cover of the Dave Clark Five's "Glad All Over".
