Who's your daddy? (NSFW) Electroclash Dj bennybenassi trumps his infamous video 'Satisfaction' with an ode to 70's/80's porn films. Makes you think it does not.

I feel dirty now, and I kinda like it!

I feel like this should have the "boobies" tag.

p.s. that's not a compliment, btw.

also, it's depressingly SFW

No, it really doesn't.

and by "depressingly" i mean "disappointingly," of course.

Satisfaction was a million times better.

I was hoping for a new video for Devo's version of Satisfaction.

Nice idea for graphics, hard to dance with my fingers stuck in my ears. I'd have to give it a 49 Dave.

I like the look of the thing -- somebody has obviously been flipping through Z-Rated: Adult Movie Posters of the 60s and 70s.

It's such a fine line between stupid, and clever.

btw: Devo.

He rules. After seeing his first video satisfaction, I actually bought a cd, been awhile since something worth buying.

Actually it looks like a more complicated take on Hype Williams' video for Kanye West's "Golddigger." Imitation is flattery, I suppose.

That Devo 2.0 has sure disillusioned me, however.

It's so weird how our society's "sexy face" is this sort of cool, disinterested expression instead of an expression of desire.

Wanna see sexy video ? The Nomi video posted here a few days ago has a chix that yanks my chain (kind of NSFW,video) far far far more then many others...and she is ACTUALLY sexy, not kind-of-inbred-sexy like that DJ stuff.

She IS hot.

Pretty ladies dancing suggestively in a music video. How novel.

You sound like my wife. She constantly asks me things like "don't breasts get boring after 25-30 years?"

And I always answer "No, no they don't."

IMO, it's technically not electroclash - there is no discernible syncopation OR eighties revival in it. It's some fairly poor trance.
posted by Laotic at 5:06 AM on April 7, 2006


That was, in every way, deeply atrocious. Benassi made a career built-on on synth sound (q.v. ATB) and then dumps it in favour of the worst vocal sound since A-Kon's "So Lonely"... Man, I should get out less...

"...built on one synth sound..."
posted by benzo8 at 5:09 AM on April 7, 2006


Calling Benassi "electroclash" is yet more proof, as if any was needed, that that tag is around 5 years past its sell-by date. What's wrong with the old "Eurotrash" label? Oh yeah, it doesn't sell in Anglo countries.

I liked the original scifi Satisfaction video mixes more than the power-tools-with-tits one. But maybe that's just me. Few things are improved when Ministry of Sound adds gratuitous crumpet, but it keeps doing it. In many ways, the MoS factory is a faithful descendent of the old "Carry On" crew.

That is really really odd. I was in Cyprus yesterday, at a totally random house of a friend of mine, and this was playing in the background. I was thinking, jeez what the hell is this. And now it's on MeFi the next day.

Been married for 20+ years. My wife sat down on the couch in just t-shirt and shorts last night, and stretched those long legs out. It just never gets old.

The song was terrible but the use of the retro movie titles was novel.

In the name of all that is holy, I shall never tire of bosoms!

I was meaning to imply that I don't understand why a shit music video indistinguishable from thousands of shit music videos is worthy of posting to MetaFilter.

Laotic >>> "IMO, it's technically not electroclash - there is no discernible syncopation OR eighties revival in it. It's some fairly poor trance."


Gah, it's not trance at all.

I liked electro better when it was called techno.

I think the proper response would be, "we're still married aren't we?"

I mean I understand why gay guys want dick, I mean we all want dick --- but I'm pretty sure that could turn a Liberace concert straight.

I was thinking of some more consistent, gratuitous use of sex to sell techno, and inevitably I thought of Add N to (X)'s

Plug Me In

and

Metal Fingers In My Body.

I think I like more humour with my music porn.

I was at a friends house about three years and I hear the first beats of"Satisfaction" come on his MTV and I shouted from the kitchen, "That is the greatest video of ALL TIME!"

The problem is that I thought it was this one when in fact it was this one.

I got some funny looks on that one.

And I gotta tells ya, when it came out, I was hearing all over the place in the Benelux area.
