Weird and Sexy and Wall of Voodoo

Nerve has just come out with the top 50 sexiest music videos ever ever. Brings back some memories, but also the chance for some watching of ones I've never heard of.
On the list is Heart, Rihanna, Duran Duran and the oft imitated sifty loucheness of Fiona Apple's Criminal. Out of those on this list I'm plumping for Chris Isaak's Wicked Game ... sexy sexy song that takes it slow and smooth, deepsultrybreathy vocals, Chris and his marvellous pugilist's nose and profile just eating up the camera, luscious Helena Christensen with eyes gleaming, black and white Herbs Ritts photography, rolling round in the ocean. Hell yeah.

On a weirder video tip, remember this one from the 80s? Wall of Voodoo did the ace "Mexican Radio" too. This song is a freaked out version of The Beach Boys "Do it again" with a cameo appearance by Brian Wilson. It has a real mutant genius, and sound effects at the start sound a bit like the Tardis.

Loved the Wall of Voodoo vid... such a wonderfully mathematical approach to music and full cred to Brian.

Made me go look for wipeout by the Fat Boys.

The hell with gangsta, silly rap is way more fun.
