Buddy Holly and the Crickets – “Peggy Sue” (Live – 1959)

September 20, 2008 at 2:14 am (Music)

Taken from a live performance in New York, not long before his death. The introduction to this is pretty funny, but you have to remember rock n roll was only a few years old at this point and was still considered a passing fad by the older generation.

Talking Heads – “I Zimbra” (Live – 1980)

September 20, 2008 at 2:09 am (Music, Talking Heads)

This was shown on the German TV show “Rockpop” in 1980…this was during their Remain in Light Tour when they expanded to a larger band for the stage show and went in a much more rhythmic direction with their music. 
“I Zimbra” was originally from the 1979 Fear of Music album and used nonsense lyrics taken from an old Hugo Ball sound poem.

The Sex Pistols – “God Save the Queen” (Promo Video – 1977)

September 20, 2008 at 1:41 am (John Lydon, Music)

Promo clip of this infamous punk rock classic from Never Mind the Bullocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols. Johnny Rotten’s lip-synching is pretty bad on this…but then again, this was from the early days of videos when they were made cheaply, bands rarely took them seriously and not many people saw them anyhow.
