1) Almost a month in advance of the holiday itself, the Orwells have released a new video called "Halloween All Year", perhaps to join the pantheon of Halloween themed songs that followed the 1962 release of the "Monster Mash." The video was directed by Eddie O'Keefe, Los Angeles resident and screenwriter, and premiered on Pitchfork.
They Might Be Giants have released a new version of their classic children's song "Alphabet of Nations", along with a crowdsourced video.
4) Peter Gabriel is playing at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday. If remembered for nothing else, he should be forever known for his 1980s music videos.
Inspiration for a several years ago costume of this website's founder
Arguably the most innovative music video ever at the time it was released
Somewhat overlooked, and featuring The Police's Stewart Copeland on drums
Peter Gabriel and one of my other favorites of the 1980s, Kate Bush. Surprise, it's NOT "Don't Give Up" (which I also love)
When I was 12 years old, I think I thought this video was the coolest thing I'd ever seen on TV. Strangely enough, it now looks slightly more dated than his earlier videos.
Little known fact that this song was originally composed as a telephone jingle. Featuring Paula Cole, the girl who used to wonder where all the cowboys went.
