Help replenish Dr. Rob's UCTV Vodpod

Dr. Rob’s UCTV CONTEST

Help me replenish Rob’s Megaphone’s vodpod.

Midway down the right sidebar lies Dr. Rob’s UCTV vodpod, and it is in need of new tunes.

Join me in filling the “live” or on-air slots with weird, offbeat, strange, but “quality” tunes. You’ll have to decide what “quality” is.

I will keep one of the five empty slots for my offbeat favorite: Hocus Pocus by Focus. The song came out when I was 10, and I’ve loved it ever since. The studio version is more polished, but the video below is quality “weird, offbeat, and strange.”

In three days I will take the top four submissions, and I will include them along with your blog address in a post on Rob’s Megaphone. The four winners will also reside in my “on-air” vodpod for two weeks.  Feel free to include why your video should win. To enter just leave information and URL in my Comments.

Good luck

    Wow! but,I like my music with feeling some sort of inspiration,
    not just sound, this group needs to find what’s inportant to them and express it and, I hope something positive, just a suggestion…

    One of my favorite videos (and not to mention a great song!) is “Dani California” by Red Hot Chili Peppers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JiC_qw4LMhM

    One of my all time favorite strange songs is “Monster Mash” by Bobby “Boris” Pickett, but I’m not sure if it has an official video…

    My husband would probably say “White & Nerdy” by Weird Al, because he had a mini obsession with that song and still starts singing it when he sees police on Segways…

    Yeah, I remember this one – same genure and time as Frankenstein by Edgar Winter Group. The name of the song came from the way they edited songs in the studio back then – by literally cutting and splicing the tape – they had the tape strung all over the studio – wondering if they would ever put it back together again…one of the group said – man this is like Frankenstein – and the name stuck! Sorry for digressing 🙂

    I have limited access to video where I am, so I may not be able to give you a video – 1966 when I was 10 the Beach Boys Pet Sounds came out then – Wouldn’t it Be Nice and Sloop John B were on that Album “… has been ranked at number #1 in several music magazines’ lists of greatest albums of all time, including New Musical Express The Times, Mojo Magazine, and Pure Pop’s lists. It was number #2 in Rolling Stone Magazine’s list. According to Acclaimedmusic.net, Pet Sounds is the most acclaimed pop album of all time by music journalists…” Sorry for the long coment, I normally keep them short, I just felt motivated to say all of this 😛
