Finally Useful, Pitchfork Gathers 100 Awesome Music Videos On YouTube

Does the kid's musical taste need a little parental guidance? Or maybe a few minutes of music and funny pictures to help him stop crying or to shift gears? Need a quick lyrics refresher for those mid-night bounces back to sleep? Can't use Waking Life to explain rotoscoping because it gives the kid motion sickness and makes him puke?

Well, you're in luck, because Pitchfork's staff has stopped arguing over indie musicians' bellybutton lint long enough to pull together a list of 100 awesome music videos ["mostly from the MTV era"] which are currently on YouTube.

At the top of their [presumably alphabetical] list: A-ha's "Take on Me."

when i went to the site, i noticed aesop rock's children's book heck yeah!

M.I.A.'s "Galang" might be a little too risque, but kids probably would dig the music and visuals.

I have to say, being a teenager before the world wide web, Van Halen/David Lee Roth videos were very important to my development, if you know what I mean...

[ZZ Top videos, I can understand. David Lee Roth, not so much. -ed.]

A friend of mine sent me this last week. Did anyone else watch that Art of Noise Video? Shouldn't someone put some safety goggles on that kid for chrissakes?

[we were all so naive back then... -ed.]
