Love Unlimited

Don't ask me why, but I'm in a Barry White kind of mood today. A quick spin through the YouTube archives reveals an embarrassment of riches. (But where's the Simpsons "Whacking Day" episode?)

First we have the current champion "Show They'll Never Release Season DVD Sets On Accout Of Music Rights" (the former champ, WKRP in Cincinnati, is due out 4/24 - yahoo!), Ally McBeal. John Cage used to psych himself up with a little BW in the sountrack in his mind. Here he and three others demonstrate in the unisex bathroom. (Just typing that paragraph made me miss the show terribly...)

Next up, Gollum and Smeagol duet on "Never Gonna Give You Up." Brilliant lipsynching here, and the split screen toward the end is a great payoff.

We've got to have the man himself, so here he is live, doing "Can't Get Enough of Your Love." The conductor is moving around more than he is, but I doubt Mick Jagger could wrest the stage away from him.
