Some Motown:

Tops:
Baby I Need Your Loving

I Can't Help Myself

Reach Out

Smoke:

You Really Got A Hold On Me

Track Of My Tears

Jackson 5:

I Want You Back

Marvin & Tammi:

Ain't No Mountain High Enough

And Marvin working it like a mofo in this live version:

Let's Get It On

"Spirit moves me
Let me prove it... good
Let your love come out"

Two versions:

A 1973 version where he was focused on the music and vocals rather than "performing":

What's Going On / What's Happening Brother

Motown 25 with his intro rap:

What's Going On

A year before his death and his voice was still in wonderful form and when "on" he was still a great performer.

Wow... I've never seen this stuff from 1983 with some of it being debuted *before* the Purple Rain album. Very much club lighting, and while amatuerish in shooting, it is multi-camera pro shot.

Purple Rain

I Would Die 4 U

Baby I'm a Star

Let's Go Crazy

There is a crapload of other stuff from the concert. Search for Prince 1983 on YouTube, or go into:

I remember this - back when the MTV Video Awards were must see TV because you never knew if someone would tear down the house like this:

I'll chime in here with some of my YouTube favorites:

http://youtube.com/watch?v=Rw48IbTjX9A

A great Fiona Apple video/song.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=Eq8Bz8gByWs

Neil Young "Needle and the Damage Done"/"No More". From 1989. Perhaps the best SNL musical performance ever.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=V1741gQN6ls

Elvis Costello "So Like Candy". Another awesome SNL performance. The SNL Band is great here, backing up Elvis.

Wow. This is a surreal duet. Just amazing.

David Bowie and Ray Davies perform the Kinks' "Waterloo Sunset"

And a little Rod Stewart from the Faces days...

Stay With Me

These are probably the two best things on Def Leppard's "Yeah!" covers album from earlier this year. But they didn't make vids for them or perform them live, I don't think.

But there is this:

T-Rex's 20th Century Boy featuring Brian May

No Matter What

Funny that Def Lep would have to reach back 35 years to create a record that actually sounds fresh, which is more than I can say for anything they've done since High 'n' Dry.

Cheetah had the original promotional video of this earlier in the thread. Here's a terrific live version:

Somebody To Love - Queen

Super cool duet:

Waylon Jennigs & Jesse Colter: I Ain't The One

As a bonus, Jesse looks hot here.

Aw hell... I don't know how I got off on this click-a-thon:

Easy Lovin

Picking Wild Mountain Berries

After the Fire is Gone


I know I've gone past the point of return when I admit that Conway could rule:

You've Never Been This Far Before

I mean... that's just a great fucking song.

This is of course a classic:

I'd Love To Lay You Down

Goodbye Time

I like Blake Shelton's version of it from last year, but Conway just sings the hell out of it.

Early, middle and late songs from one of my favorite bands. Big Country:

Fields of Fire

Broken Heart (13 Valleys)

Fragile Thing

And a very late performance of one of their earlier songs:

Porrohman

Which isn't one of their bigger songs, but gets across their interesting sound.

I got into them at the start of their career as they were one of the few new guitar bands coming out of the UK at the time of tencho. They has a signature sound with their guitar work, the likes of which you weren't hearing at all on the radio at the time. They got some hype as the "next U2" since they were a passionate four piece band, but that really wasn't what they were. Saw them on their first tour of the US in a club here... seems a lifetime ago.

Stuart Adamson, the band's lead, passed five years ago this week.

A little something off the beaten track...

I'm usually not much for video game theme songs, but a group called Corporeal (mainly high school kids and college freshmen) did a version of the Halo 2 theme that kicks ass.

The "studio" version"

A live version at a HS talent show. The other members of Corporeal do a "Blue Man Group" masked gimmick with Hanah Stuart front and center, and they break off and play the Super Mario theme briefly before returning to Halo.

It's a fucking shame that he's pretty much only known now for "East Bound And Down" and Smokey & The Bandit, but Jerry Reed really was an eclectic talent. Just two of his songs, one hitting a spot tonight and the other a pairing of two really talented guys:

A Thing Called Love

Jerry Reed & Glen Campbell - Wayfaring Stranger

As mentioned several times before, I'm a Patty Loveless mark. Several clips are on Page 2 of the thread. Here are more:

A little seasonal:

Beautiful Star of Bethlehem

Bluegrass White Snow

Duet time...

Patty & Ricky: Daniel Prayed

Swank!

Patty Loveless & Del McCoury: Working on a Building

"... It's a holy ghost building!" :)

Patty & Dwight Yoakam: Send A Message To My Heart

Oh wow... that's a great performance by both.

It leads nicel into one that always makes me think of my own Special Lady. Posted earlier in the thread, but I'm a sucker for it:

Lonely Too Long
