Top 9 Weirdest 90’s Videos [Video]
The 80's was packed with weird videos...but it was the beginning of music videos, so you kinda expect that, right? The producers were just learning to walk. By the 90's, they could run, and they ran to some weeeeeeeird places! Here's my Top 9 picks for Weirdest 90's Videos (based on songs that charted and my opinion)!
I include The Scatman on this list for three reasons. One, it stands alone as the only scat video hit of the 1990's. Dos, it has a hidden history. His real name was John Larkin, and he had a severe stutter from the beginning, and so he scatted about it. And III, the guy was 53 when this song hit. That's very cool, but for a hit song, y'gotta admit, it's not something you see every day.
If you listen to the song, he's talking about how even tho he stuttered, he made his life happen. And what a life...successful jazz pianist to a life where demons took over, to a rebirth as Scatman John. Read about it here.
Those pants...and really, it's like the Wide World of the Walking Man. But really, those pants.
There's a pretty decent chance you haven't seen this video...and maybe you'll think it should be the number one weirdest. After all...it's a Bucket Full of Weird. The tubular hair? The sponge hair? Playing a carrot? ps - I do love the Elvis Gals. I can admit that.
"In 2007, Rolling Stone named "Barbie Girl" as one of the 20 Most Annoying Songs. But in 2007, MuchMoreMusic featured the song at No. 27 on the list of the 50 Guilty Pleasures." (WIKI) I admit, I'm in the Guilty Pleasures category. I love weird pop tunes.
You have hypnotized me, D!
Also, does anyone really have a succotash wish? And if so, what is it?
The Light Funky Ones spit truly dope rhymes. ((ahem)) Allow me to refresh your mem'ry.
Hip Hop Marmalade spic And span,
Met you one summer and it all began
You're the best girl that I ever did see,
The great Larry Bird Jersey 33
When you take a sip you buzz like a hornet
Billy Shakespeare wrote a whole bunch of sonnets...
I added the bold...because that may be my favorite pop-song lyric of all time. Ever.
I have a few questions.
a) What is up with the velour shirts?
ii) Why are they in space? It isn't explained and...well...why?
3) OK, which guy wants her back? And do they think stomping around is going to get her back? When in the history of love-troubles, did stomping and clomping around a space-set ever bring 'em back? ((sigh))
There's so much to love/laugh at here. Classic 90's in every way. If you don't want to watch the whole thing, fast forward to 3:35 and check out this part of the rap...it's been in my head since 1993 (I am not kidding about that...ask my friends)...
We were meant girl, me and you
But lately you've been acting like I smell like a zoo.
There is nothing not great about the Number One Weirdest Video of the 90's. Behold, the power of the green screen.
