Another Monday.
Another yawn.
I have company this week and stayed up until midnight having a lovely chin wag.

Let's see if we can wake up our bodies and minds by guessing Who Dat? in today's videos.

Yes, you have to do it.
I picked the topic.

Off ya go my minions.

XmasDolly, Conductor on this Musical trip.  Co-conductors Callie of JAmerican Spice, Stacy of Stacy Uncorked, Cathy of Cathy Kennedy’s Blog and our Honorary Co-Conductor for the month of July has been held over due to lack of volunteering is our very own NAILA MOON (APPLAUSE) of Just the Stuff You Know.  Thank you very much Naila for agreeing to stay over. (APPLAUSE-HUGS),  NOW LET’S ROCK THIS PLACE & get this TRAIN rollin’!  We’re eager for your train to arrive so we may follow you to the next stop & hear your tunes!


So what gave me the idea for this particular theme, was seeing this particular image recently:

Do you know who that is Dancing in The Dark (click to see video) with The Boss?
How about a close-up?

 Yep...... way before Friends....that's Courteney Cox. 

Another one I thought of is this cute little guy, bossing Paula Abdul around in Forever Your Girl:

Frodo Baggins

  You might be more familiar of him in his most famous role:


Elijah Wood -- a huge music fan.   So big he has almost made a second career of appearing in music videos.  He also has his own production company and you can find him starring in the video "Dance Floor" (click to view video) by The Apples In Stereo, the first band his signed to his label.

Elijah has also appeared in the following other music videos:

 I particularly love Canadian Hard Rockers Danko Jones music videos -- and since I have posted the Beastie Boys cameo on a previous 4M,  let's go with I Think Bad Thoughts:  if you are an Elijah Wood fan, it certainly is not how you may be used to seeing him.  

Let's see if you guess who the other major cameo is.   (revealed after the video).

*Warning, some language in the song and mild violence in video.*




Yep, that was The Karate Kid himself getting done in by a Hobbit:  Ralph Macchio.
Oh....and the girl?   Jena Malone.
that's a triology right there folks.
(and so is this video series with Full of Regret being part 1, part 2 being Had Enough, and this one the final part 3.)

Another one of my favourite actors, besides being the most badass zombie killer around AND a photographer AND a painter/sculptor.......does quite a few music videos in his "spare time".   The most recent for Lady Gaga.
Here's Daryl Dixon himself, Norman Reedus as Judas.
Just because, Norman Reedus On A Bike!!!
(but definitely one of the stranger videos I have ever seen.)




Norman has appeared in eight music videos: Flat Top by Goo Goo Dolls, Cats In The Cradle by Ugly Kid Joe, "Mean To Me" by Tonic, Strange Currencies by R.E.M., Fake Plastic Trees by Radiohead, Violently Happy by Björk, Wicked as it Seems by Keith Richards and Judas by Lady Gaga (as Judas).

Another one I am sure you are not surprised to find here.   Before he was shooting arrows at bad aliens while leaping off buildings, Jeremy Renner got in some "Trouble" with Pink:




And finally.....after he was done casting spells on bad wizards, movie goers, Broadway..... and my minions;  oh DanRad....you've been gone too long dear blog Stalker!!
Welcome Home...... I mean......er go home DanRad, you're drunk! 




Have a musical week!
Seriously, like I always say.....it sweeps away the dust of life.
