    Welcome, boys and girls, to the inaugural edition of Hey Mr YouTube DJ where cool peeps (do people still say “peeps"?) discuss their favorite music vids, be they comedy, homemade mashups, vintage performances and more.

    First up is Tom Blankenship (the bassist formerly known under the nom de rock Two Tone Tommy) from My Morning Jacket. MMJ’s fifth full-length album, Evil Urges, hits stores in a week and a half. The band will play Bonnaroo, Toronto, Montreal and Radio City Music Hall in June before they head over to Europe.

    And without further ado, please enjoy today’s Hey Mr. YouTube DJ…


    Awesome! British heavy metal band Saxon cover Christopher Cross’ “Ride Like the Wind". Somehow they manage to make it hilarious without the participation of Michael McDonald. No wonder they were the real life inspiration behind Spinal Tap.


    From the unintentionally comedic side of metal to the.. err, intentionally comedic? With truly creepy lyrics like “You will find your rocking chair and the tea pot that Missy found” shrieked by a guy in face paint and a cape, I’d hope so. Throwing a welcome home party for your Grandma? King Diamond has the soundtrack for just such an occasion.


    On to the land of black metal, Norway, where we switch gears with a live clip of the Bill Evans Trio performing “Nardis” on October 28, 1966 in Oslo. This is shortly after bassist Eddie Gomez joined who, at 22 years old, was already a mustachioed badass.


    By now everyone has seen Zach Galifianakis’ video for Kanye West’s “Can’t Tell Me Nothin’” (yep, the one with Will Oldham). But just as brilliant is this, his similar treatment for Anita Baker’s “You Bring Me Joy".


    Speaking of bringing the joy, how can you not smile watching Stanley Clarke & George Duke jam Clarke’s “School Days” in 1981 on the Old Grey Whistle Test? It’s okay to look like you’re having fun making music. Really. For proper evidence check the geek out & grin session around the 3:00 mark.

    Thanks for stopping by. It’s always a pleasure to have you join us over here at the ol’ SXSW Music Bloggy. You can email us at and subscribe to our super groovy rss feed here.

    Have a splendorous weekend, lp
