In Praise of…Lip-Synced Performances on a White Background Posted by Mr. Moderator Jul 102013 Maybe the color has been washed out of this video; maybe there was color in the original broadcast. Nevertheless, I stand by my belief that it’s hard to top a lip-synced performance on a white background. 6 Responses to “In Praise of…Lip-Synced Performances on a White Background” ladymisskirroyale says: 07/10/2013 at 5:01 pm Unless the song lyrics are written there: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bo3R3LBjDek 0 High Five cliff sovinsanity says: 07/10/2013 at 6:01 pm If you turn off the audio and drink a few beers you would swear this is Paul Revere and The Raiders. Must be the suits. Stevie Wright does bear a resemblance to Mark Lindsay. 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 07/10/2013 at 11:01 pm Don’t forget this video when we run Last Man Standing: Videos Featuring Monkees! 0 High Five ladymisskirroyale says: 07/11/2013 at 10:32 am I couldn’t get this song out of my head yesterday. It’s a horrible video, probably taken off of someone’s tv, but I love the song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WeD4qvP2e9U Notice how the singer looks like The Quaker Oats Dude. It makes sense that there were a plethora of white backgrounds in the 60’s – the time for op art and pop art. In black suits, the band members look like they are floating in air. And then when you add colored backgrounds: groooooovy! 0 High Five ladymisskirroyale says: 07/11/2013 at 10:36 am Here’s a better version of the same video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OrLJvDoM27M Would it have been shot in b/w or color? This one looks like it’s been colorized. And Mr. Smother’s patter – you just can’t write that kind of stuff! 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 07/11/2013 at 12:27 pm That show was in color. I’m going to be chuckling over the Quaker Oats Dude reference all day. Thank you! 0 High Five Leave a ReplyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
