This post will probably get deleted, but I'd still like to raise you.

O ya, o ya, well, how about listening to this for 12 straight hours... huh? (mp3 links at bottom of page)

That's not a woodpecker.

From the description in soundofsuburbia's "raise you" link: "This video was transferred from a VHS promo copy sent to a radio station. The Hi-Fi audio track was maintained and there are no logos/bugs on the screen."

Somebody's a very careful archivist of crap.

i guess someone must have liked it enough to redo it ... (just some amateur video, but the girl's cute)

Compare this to the thin line of gray ditch-mud that runs down midtown New York City curb gutters after a rain in the summer. Or, perhaps, the taste of raw sea urchin. Take a bite of either. Discuss.

I couldn't listen to the woodpecker but I made it all the way through Edelweiss due to cleavage and the catchy tune.

Suburbia wins. Hands down.

And, (though the cute girl helps), I did almost enjoy the second woodpecker from space video.

Wow! I'd totally forgotten about that. One or both of the dudes rapping on that were students at my college when I was there. Of course we all thought it was the greatest song ever.

This is what "Raf" of "Raf and Cooly-C" is doing now.

Somehow an mp3 of this song washed up on my computer in the haze of the late 90's and their college-dorm networks. I loathed it but could never get rid of it. The first ten seconds made my stomach turn, my face twist. Whenever I would feel numb, I would play the beginning of the song, just to feel something, anything.

Somehow the video makes the song better, not worse.

Life's too short to devote an hour and a half to watching this video. I realize it's actually only 3 minutes long, but time is relative...
