Sorry I'm late, the alarm didn't go off.  They say the road to Hell is paved with excuses.. well, that's mine.  

This week I've selected 4 music videos that are animated.  A few you'll know, but there's one surprise.

They are:

Heroes and Villains by the Beach Boys.


2.  Sugar Sugar by the Archies.


3.  You Bring the Summer by the Monkees.


4.  Yellow Submarine by the Beatles.


There they are!  Let the cartoon wars begin!

For copy/paste convenience:

Heroes and Villains/Beach Boys.
Sugar Sugar/Archies.
You Bring the Summer/Monkees.
Yellow Submarine/Beatles.

Cindy, I can vote early on this (have to). I did one of these (animated) a few years back, (drum roll) WITH Heroes and Villains and this is my fave version! 

Gold to the Beach Boys on a GREAT song!!!!
Beginnings of H&V to Great Shape to Barnyard - youtube.com/watch?v=nXsMSy2eDu0

Close, Silver to The Beatles and the kooky campfire song (with I Wanna Hold ... chords) and remember the flip:
youtube.com/watch?v=HuS5NuXRb5Y

Bronze to Andy Kim and Jeff Barry as The Archies, who Lee wrote about when last here.

Leaving The Monkees as the Tin as it doesn't belong with the other three at all!

GOLD - Heroes and Villains/Beach Boys. Hard to beat.

SILVER - Yellow Submarine/Beatles. Fun, but inconsequential.

BRONZE - Sugar Sugar/Archies. Al forgot to mention that the lead singer is Ron Dante.

TIN - You Bring the Summer/Monkees. Forgettable.


Pink Floyd - Empty Spaces (from "The Wall" film). The cartoon begins at about 20 seconds...

At first, voting seemed difficult, but it turned out to be fairly easy.

Gold -- The Beach Boys -- Extraordinary. Given the competition, it should be destined for the playoffs.

Silver -- The Beatles -- Amusing, although it didn't deserve to be a massive hit. But it was by the Beatles! Therefore, it was.

Bronze -- The Monkees -- Fifty years later, I still can't take them seriously. Or otherwise.

Tin -- The Archies -- One of the worst massive hits since the dawn of time.


Like last week, it won't be easy to think of other videos that meet the criteria (a relief to some). In this case, that means using "the technique of photographing successive drawings or positions of puppets or models to create an illusion of movement when the movie is shown as a sequence". Here's one, however:

Fleet Foxes -- "Mykonos"

Thanks, Cindy.

It was a good day to sleep in Cindy. Problem is, days are getting short sleeping late reduced the amount of natural sunlight. ☀️ I miss the long days.

I'll go ahead and vote, too. Three of theses I've heard many times. The Monkees' video was new.

Gold - The Beatles - Yellow Submarine. The song and the video work very well together. Imaginative, up beat, draws me right in.
Silver - The Beach Boys - Heroes and Villains. This is the best song, but I prefer it without the video. I like the pictures the song puts in my mind a lot better.
Bronze - The Archies - Sugar, Sugar. I like the song a lot. The video is ok, but it mostly brings out the good nostalgia in me.
Tin - The Monkees - You Bring the Summer. The song is moderately ok but the video is poor. It doesn't look like they spent much time making it.

Here's a classic animated song:


Hope you are awake now, Cindy. Good week.

Cindy, did the dog eat your homework too? Ha, ha!

How about this big one from the early MTV era, containing an interesting hybrid of animation and live images:


And here's a more recent one that I believe Al first shared with us here a few years ago:


More later...

Thanks to Al, T, Larry and Deb for your early votes.  

Al - I had no idea that Andy Kim was with the Archies.  I do remember a couple of his songs and really liked them - Baby, I Love You and Rock Me Gently.  H & V is a great song - I agree with you on that!  There's no intro to the song, just BAM! and takes off running.  If there's one negative thing to say about it, it's the ending of it.  I've never liked the ending - it just ... stops.

T - The Monkees video is from their 2016 album, Good Times.  This was 4 years after Davy Jones had died.  If he would've been involved, maybe it would've been better.  

Larry - Thanks for the Mykonos video.  It sounded a little familiar to me - Good song!

Deb - You got in early this week!  Well, you woke up all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed this morning!  I was going to post Sunday night, but my son hogged the computer and I couldn't stay awake. So... I think I didn't save the time on my phone properly.  I had used the Dire Straits video on a battle of mine last season.  GREAT song!

Tom - No.. HA, HA!  I don't have a dog, but I do have a Klepto cat.  Love the video and the song, too.  They play it on my local radio station every day.  There's a few videos that I can think of that combine animation and live images and here's one

We're voting for the music, not the animation, right?

Good music, good animation:

My Morning Jacket -- "Touch Me I'm Going To Scream Pt. 1"
youtube.com/watch?v=Vw1mWt5Q78k

Talking Heads -- "And She Was"
youtube.com/watch?v=cl3B_FTDKD0

Tame Impala -- "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards"
youtube.com/watch?v=wycjnCCgUes

Good music, minimal animation:

My Morning Jacket -- "Touch Me I'm Going To Scream Pt. 2"

Looks like a colourful/colorful week! 

GOLD -- Beach Boys, Heroes & Villains -- Nicely trippy video.

SILVER -- Beatles, Yellow Submarine -- To think that movie and the White Album are turning 50...

BRONZE -- The Archies, Sugar Sugar

TIN -- Monkees, You Bring The Summer -- They were animated enough before they were animated here. No fresh bananas in this tune...more like banana bread (reused)? 

I guess there were different types of animation, such as the Claymation type, used in this epic 80s video (who can forget those dancing roasting chickens?): 




Funny I don't remember seeing this video before but -- WHEEE! I like those banisters!: 



Thanks, Cindy!

Who can forget the old animated Beatles cartoon show featuring some of their early songs:






And a latter day edition:

My animated votes:

Gold: Heroes and Villains - Beach Boys

Silver: Sugar Sugar - Archies - Memories of my youth and I can dance to it.

Bronze: You Bring the Summer - Monkees

Tin: Yellow Submarine - Beatles - I've never been to a Ringo concert because I'd have to suffer through this yawner.

I enjoyed watching this animated cartoon as a kid.



Thanks Cindy!

I love that Tom Petty clip.

Here's a kiwi one from Dave Dobbyn, and also from the Footrot Flats movie.



The incredible frame-by-frame shooting of this video must have taken ages.



And then there is this woolly little number.  Again, it's a New Zealand clip, but we have enough wool to spare.

ha.  does puppetry count?  my first thought was of "Your Parent's cocaine" by The Coup.

1.  "Heroes" of course, best song and best video--I've never seen before, thanks, Cindy.!  by Brian's best lyricist.  Great song.

2. "You Bring the Summer" 

again, thanks, Cindy, great song that I never heard before.   Plus, I get the chance to prove that I am not the same person as Larry...(since his tastes are the closest to mine on this site).  Conspiracy theorists? --I try to keep the "two" straight, by praising Elliot Smith as 'Larry' and Jonathan Richman, as 'John.'  Fooled you!   ha.--  The Monkees songs and hits deserve Rock n Roll Hall of Fame honors, no matter how unhip they were presumed to be by the, well, I was going to say a word Lee doesn't like, and I like Lee, so I won't.  (rhymes with yippies).

3.  "Sugar Sugar"

really it's not 'better than the Beatles' as the Rubinoos think.  BUT, keep in mind, the 'Wicked Pickett' covered it, so how embarrassing can it be?  Who's to say it isn't catchy?  at least as much so as ...In a godda da vida, baby, or going up country, or L.A. Woman, don't you think?

4. "Yellow Submarine"

I grew up with two brothers who thought the Beatles were the best ever.  I thought it was the Beach Boys and we had disagreements about this.  I used to insult the Beatles, like the Texan I was, I mean, am still probably, such as describing 'a Hard Days Night' as a bunch of falling down in the field, and the Yellow Submarine movie, as SOOOOOO boring.  'I got a hole in me pocket'.  bleck.  Seemed to last about 4 hours when broadcast on TV, I thought as a kid.  Who can bear this non-sense?  Later, I understood, that it was derived and presented 'for the benefit of' druggies.   you know, those horrible ...people who to this day, keep Jan & Dean and the Monkees out of the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.   Boring song.   Mediocre song.   okay, not that bad of a song.   But my vote is 4th.

Gold - Sugar Sugar/Archies. Can't top the No 1 song of 1969 ... which could have been a Monkees recording. The best in bubble gum.
Bronze - Yellow Submarine/Beatles. A catchy one from the mellow yellow days.
You Bring the Summer/Monkees. I like this!  Can't thing of another song that mentions 'scrabble'
Tin - Heroes and Villains/Beach Boys. By giving this 'tin' ... I know some will now consider me a villain.
