12 Days of Music Video of the Week

Man, I have the first and second ones set; getting in the third was seriously hard. I should have put more thought into this list I think rather than randomly going through the media category and picking whatever video strikes me. There’s no way this order makes any sense.

Anyway, I’m settling on this one. F it.

3. William Shatner and Joe Jackson – Common People

The addition of Jackson elevates it from just another great Shatner oddity to a really great song, period. At around the minute forty-five mark they start hitting their stride, and by the two and a half minute mark they’re in the friggin’ zone, man. A total reinvention of the duet. God Earth is so lucky to have Shatner.

Since that’s pretty random, why not a bonus track that has nothing to do with anything?

Some fat French guy beatboxing.

That clip continues to blow my mind a little every time I see it.


  1. Ok, that Shatner bit has redeemed you for the moment. Only for the moment.

  2. Shatner is a uniter.

  3. Nothing beats the Shatner ‘Rocket man’ rendition, though. Nothing has ever even come close.
