A BAD LIP READING

It’s Tuesday and the music themed blog hop is still underway, but I’m sailing under the radar for another week. I’m not very familiar with much music from before my time. Having to pretend I existed during those periods would actually be a lot of fun — sure I could make stuff up — but I will just make myself believe that the 70's weren’t as awesome as everyone living them wants you to think.

Therefore it was destined that I would be born seven days into the 80's; the same amount of days it took “God” to create the world*. This includes his much needed day of rest. So while he was kicking back, sipping a martini — shaken, not stirred — I came into the world kicking and screaming.

More Bees?

Not exactly...

While laying low, I ventured out — exploring the blogosphere — during this blog hop and came across Kristi’s post at Finding Ninee. She has quite the vivid memory of her angsty pre-teen years. I won’t spoil the surprise of the topic, but within the post her musical choice was the song Tragedy, by the Bee Gees. This instantly made me remember one of my favorite A Bad Lip Reading videos. So in her honor — okay, maybe this will be more of a disgrace to some; I apologize in advance — I will share my own Bee Gees video for my musical theme. Just like her magical dangling Christmas lights, I will share some “Magic” of my own.

“Magic Man” - A Bad Lip Reading:
 
Oh My Nuts, I love that video! I could listen to it over and over! There may be something seriously wrong with me. I can’t just share one video, though. I have to get in at least one more, so I will also post my other favorite music video by A Bad Lip Reading.

Those of you familiar with, and a fan of, Michael Bublé may want to cover your eyes... I have to say, though, if the artist gives praise and keeps a good attitude about the video, I have faith you can too ;-)

“Russian Unicorn” - A Bad Lip Reading:

Awww yeah... my evening feels a little more complete! If liking either of these videos I would recommend checking out some of their additional work. They also do movie/political/random clips which can be quite hilarious.

Thanks for stopping by!

*Let me live in my own make-believe universe
**It’s awesome, don’t be jelly
***Asterixis are “in” right now
****Just trust me, my shit is always right sometimes

Did you enjoy any of the videos? Are you already familiar with A Bad Lip Reading? If so, any personal favs from them?

  1. I have seen several bad lip readings of NFL, and they are hilarious. Haven't seen a song before. While amusing, I'm sure they'd be funnier if I knew the original songs. Maybe?
    You were born in the 80s? Too bad. You are too young to remember or appreciate the best decade ever.

    1. They do a handful of songs, and while they are maybe funnier when you know the original, I knew neither of the two above and found them hilarious!

      I will have to celebrate them vicariously through the multitude of TV and movie depictions.

    2. A la Calvin Harris - I got love for you if you were born in the 80's.

      The 70's were undoubtedly awesome, but the 80's rocked.

      Also, we of that younger, shinier generation are all turning 30 now (30? Eek - milestone much!) so how ya feeling now?! :p

    1. So much so that you kept a part of them baked up and placed on top of a fridge eh?

      ...

      Also: What I'm gathering from this is that life before The Becoming (ala ME) was awesome >.>

  4. I love bad lip reading, especially the James Blunt and Goyte version..."I kicked a monkey and used your goat!"

    1. YAY! A fan :-) I am surprised more people haven't heard of them. I like the Goyte cover too!

  5. hate to be the contrarian here in these here comments* here, but while the 70's were truly awesome, no one yet has mentioned some of the ...not as awesome features of said decade.
    Ladies and Gentleman, I present: polyester leisure suits! ( wide range of pastel shades...mostly blue)... Anita Bryant ...Plymouth Horizon... TV shows filmed before 'a live TV audience')

    I liked your vids... (and you are totally correct about the music of this decade... amazing time: country rock, punk rock, two guys with '12 strings' groups)

    (Here's a little giant artifact from the decade... don't tell anyone I told you, 3 words: 'Rocky Horror Picture Show')

    nice blog ya got here



    *yeah, right**
    ** yes, you are totally correct about these things being 'in'***
    *** because they are the ventriloquist's dummy of the blogosphere

    1. Hey! Nothing wrong going against the grain :-) You are a trooper. Thankfully I missed all the "bad" that came with the 70's too, though I'm sure the 80's had plenty.

      It is actually a crime, but I've yet to see the Rocky Horror Picture Show :-(

      We have a theater here that enacts it all the time, and even pull people up on stage (you are supposed to were a V sign they give you indicating you as a RHPS Virgin). Sounds like a lot of fun, but the one time I was going to go, this girl I was kind of seeing wanted me to wear a dress and such... was a bit out of my comfort zone lol

  6. Wow! I've seen some bad lip reading vids before (and don't know the Buble song) but WOWZER did you ever just make my day even better. Thanks Jak :)

    1. I love the Twilight ones too! "And... that's how babies are made?" "Scooby Doo" and "Do something fruity" are some of my favorite lines.
