Friday's Music Video: The Ting Tings

I'm going to try and put up a music video every Friday from now on. Until I forget.

Anyway, I bloody loves me this song, I do.

'That's Not My Name', by The Ting Tings.

That's some good shit, right there.

Besides the lovely tune, I also enjoy the moments when the bloke is patently knackered from whacking that bass-drum throughout 179 takes.

Hello Jason! It's great, isn't it? I'm playing it non-stop in the car. Although I probably need to stop singing 'My name is Staceeeeeee' at traffic lights with the window down.

You are kidding, right?

I have to listen to a LOT of shit music due to circumstances beyond my control but even still but this is the worse song I've heard in years. Mick Hucknall's new album is much better than this. Ali Campbell's last album is better than this. Erasure's last album was a gazillion times better than this.

Dear sweet mother of god. I assume you're suffering from some form of sympathy pregnancy brain sponginess.

Are we commenting on the song or the video?

SONG: spinsterella has said it all for me - 'nough said

VIDEO: Better then the song - just. I did like the way the drums were lit up in pale blue and pink and then the end is quite good when she's sort of hypnotised by the drum stick, or is she just in shock because suddenly there's some guiter playing coming through when we've had to endure just drums and clapping for 2/3 of the song.

Quite like it. Reminds me a bit of Toni Basil and/or the Flying Lizards. And yes, nurse will be coming round with the Horlicks soon.

The Ting Tings make my teeth itch, That can't be positive, surely?

This is a great song. But the Yo-Gabba Gabba mix (a kid's TV show) somehow makes it even better!

I don't think that went far enough.
