Music Video Thursday Super Deluxe Season Finale Monday Edition Extravaganza!

It seems like just yesterday that I uttered (well, typed) the words "I haven't missed a Thursday yet". I should have known better. 11 days and 70+ work hours later, here I am, realizing that the "crazy, crazy, crazy week" that I mentioned was merely the warm-up act, and that the main event was still to come. So, with the crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy, CRAZY week behind me now, I've decided that now would be a good time for a season finale to Music Video Thursday, and give myself a break over the holidays.

Music Video Thursday began on an unassuming Thursday in June, when I stumbled across a video of a past-his-prime heavy metal icon on Jay Leno, performing a classic song in a musical style it was probably never intended for. I found it amusing, and decided that since I wasn't doing much else on this blog at the time, I might as well post it here. Within a month, I got it into my head that I should do it as a regular feature, and started the official Music Video Thursday posts.

Six months of musical mayhem and magic have passed by, and by some strange twist of fate, I've stumbled across a video of another past-his-prime heavy metal icon on Jay Leno, performing a classic song in a musical style is was probably never intended for. Ladies and gentlemen, for your holiday musical pleasure, Cowboy_K's Music Video Thursday is proud to present Dee Snider and Twisted Sister's heartwarming performance of the classic Christmas carol, "Oh Come All Ye Faithful":

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of you, and watch for the season premier of Music Video Thursday in 2007!

Music Video Thursday: "Bombs"

It's been a crazy, crazy, crazy week and all I want to do is go to sleep (but that'll have to wait for another post), but I haven't missed a Thursday yet, and I'm not going to drop the ball now.

I don't really know much about Faithless or this song, but apparently MTV refused to play the video. It's very powerful, almost hard to watch, and it makes you stop and think about what is happening in the world today. My wife says that it's no wonder MTV didn't show it - the last thing they seem to want their viewers to do is think for themselves. I think she's on to something there.

Maybe next week I'll find something a little lighter.
