If you’ve ever wondered: “Is there a music video equivalent of weird fiction?”…I’ve got a Tuesday Tune for you!

The following ambient music from Mirage in the Water is overlaid onto clips from the bizarre 1973 Polish film The Hour-Glass Sanatorium. The film is about a man who undertakes a strange journey through the many rooms of the sanatorium where his father resides, who has stopped breathing but is still alive. Each room in the sanatorium conjures worlds composed of his memories, dreams and nightmares. The film is Adapted from a collection of short stories by Polish-Jewish writer Bruno Schulz.

It’s been several years since I listed to this song and I don’t recall ever seeing this video, but when Lawrence Person pointed it out to me, I knew I had my Tuesday Tune post. OK, maybe it had something to do with him saying “There’s another Tuesday Tune”, but I promise I am not his posting puppet. (He totally told me to say that.)

Broken Bells is the supergroup of Danger Mouse and The Shins’ James Mercer and for their 2nd album, the team has put together a short SciFi film to accompany their (mostly) instrumental music. The film depicts a romance that devlops between Kate Mara (House of Cards) and Anton Yelchin (Star Trek), who “appear to get swept away into some futuristic landscape, spaceship, and disco.”

Here are both videos stitched together through the magic of YouTube playlists.

TUESDAY TUNE: “Monsters” by Abby

Here’s a video for “Monsters” by Abby, made by Pooya Abbasian, who describes the video like this: “This is the story of Abby, an isolated girl who has been submerged in the world of her own turmoil and paranoia, where the line between reality and nightmare is growing thinner and thinner.”

I really like the grainy, black-and-white look of this video. Very atmospheric, fitting the tone of the song itself.

Tuesday Tune: The Motown Version of David Bowie’s “Starman”

The only thing that would be cooler than this Motown version of David Bowie’s “Starman” would be if it were actually real. Still, excellently done…

I recently re-watched the anime film Akira and, in wandering the web reading about the movie, I ran across this little tidbit: the music videos for the songs “Midnight City” and “Reunion” by band M83 are homages to the movie.

ORLY?

I had seen “Midnight City” before and I really should have seen the connection as a group of psychic children are being used to further the ends of the powers that be. The music is cool and the videos are interesting to watch. There are seem decent special effects here which would have been almost impossible to produce just a few short years ago.

TUESDAY TUNE: Meco Star Wars, TopPop Style

From 1970 to 1988 TopPop brought all the latest pop hits to Dutch TV. As many of you may recall, 1977 saw the release of a little film called Star Wars, and the inevitable disco version of the theme by Meco. Of course, this version was featured on TopPop and now you can relive that segment in all it’s Dutch pop glory.

WARNING! Incomprehensible disco dancing and costumes ahead!

TUESDAY TUNE: “A Character I Used To Know” Parodies “Game of Thrones”

Almost exactly two years ago singer-songwriter Gotye released his soon-to-go-viral music video “Somebody That I Used To Know”. As you might expect, the parodies soon followed. And what better to parody than Game of Thrones? Below you’ll see the video from Not Literally as the sing about all the characters they used to know in season 1. I wonder what they’ll be singing about for season 3…

Says the poster on Vimeo:

This song is epic on its own but then I cued up the end of 2001 to it and it took it to a whole new level. The edit is untouched, the track just syncs this well.

I’m not saying this was intentional, but the timing on this is way too perfect for it not to have been an influence. It starts to fall apart at the end, but during the astronaut talk at the beginning and the “light journey” it’s crazy how well they sync
