We’re back to Cool & Strange Music for June 28, 2016! And today we have some bizarre and cool videos that are sure to make you laugh, or, at least go, “Wow!” Today’s video are all “over the top” so if you have a twisted sense of humor, you’re gonna like these!
Our last episode of Cool & Strange music featured some great horror movie trailers. (See: Cool & Strange Music for June 7, 2016! The Top 4 Horror Movie Trailers!) and the reaction was great! Thanks! So let’s start off today’s countdown with some horror music from a surf rock band who are regulars on our countdowns: Messer Chups, from St. Petersburg, Russia. (They surf in Russia?) This is cool.

#3) Messer Chups -Dracula Hates Photoshoots https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0R26wwvOdHo
Dracula hates photoshoots? Of course he does! All those flashing lights and all. I hate photo shoots. Don’t you?
At #2 is a mashup. We featured my top favorite mashups a few weeks back and the reaction was great! Thanks to all who wrote in. My favorite mashups are ones that take two totally different types of music and mash them together into a shockingly amusing mix. Today’s mashup is sure to satisfy. It is LL Cool J versus the Dexy’s Midnight Runners. This is genius. I cracked up when Dexy’s Midnight Runners come in and sing in the middle.
#2) Knock Out Eileen (LL Cool J vs Dexy’s Midnight Runners) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejuMfZdkM2o
Did someone say, “Today’s videos are all ‘over the top’?” I did? OK. Well, here’s a classic from the 80s. And one of the most deliciously over the top videos I think I’ve ever seen. If you ever went to high school in America (and you weren’t a cheerleader or captain of the football team), then you’ll dig this classic. The lyrics are hilarious, an entire 1950s movie plot in one short 3 minute video.
#1) Julie Brown – Homecoming Queen’s Got a Gun https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xG3yGdQYwqg
Well that’s it! Thanks for tuning in this time. See you next week for more Cool & Strange music! – Mike (in Tokyo) Rogers
