1. Bobby McFerrin - I've Got A FeelingThis performance has just got it all: It's pure musical talent and near impossible perfect pitch, it swings, it's cool and it'll put a smile on your face that will grow bigger and bigger as you continue to watch it to the end.
2. Kevin Olusola - Julie-OIt's cello, and it's beatbox. I should also mention that in addition to having mastered the afore mentioned arts, the handsome mr. Olusola has a degree from Yale, and is a master saxophonist. Form an orderly line to my left, ladies.
3. Betty Hutton - Arthur Murray Taught Me Dancing In A HurryThe great Johnny Mercer, who is one of my all-time favourite songwriters in history, wrote this hilarious tune. Betty's performance makes it that much better to watch. Ah, they just don't make em like that anymore!
4. Beastie Boys - Make Some NoiseI remember it well. I was 14 years old and at my very first concert: the Beastie Boys played the Ahoy in Rotterdam on an amazing rotating stage located smack in the middle of the huge hall. My friend Madeleine and I were clear at the front of the crowd and witnessed the most amazing thing I had ever seen or heard in my life. Now, 16 years later, I still love the Beasties on so many different levels and their new album, Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 2, proves that they have still got it! (Though I must say, I'm not too sure about the reggae song ...) Anyway. This video is great. Watch it several times to find all the cameo's. No, watch it several times to KEEP ROCKING!!
