Quietly “Dancing In The Street”

I don’t know how or why I came across this video today, but like a ’90s chain letter, now I must share it. It’s the music video for David Bowie and Mick Jagger’s 1985 song “Dancing In The Street,” but with the music removed. It’s awkward, hilarious, and worth 3 minutes of your time. [Kate Bernot]

Solo David Lee Roth “Running With The Devil” vocals

I’ll see your silent video, Kate, and raise you some solo vocals. Here’s David Lee Roth’s isolated vocal track from Van Halen’s “Running With The Devil” in 1978. Also awkward, hilarious, and completely captivating: His vocals are amazing per usual, but his screechy asides are worth falling on the floor with laughter for. Guess that Eddie Van Halen ax work adds more than we realized. [Gwen Ihnat]
