A thing called love.

I just opened all four simultaneously in different tabs. That was pretty interesting.

Better/Also/Get off my lawn: The Darkness, but all the videos of the actual music video seem to have the audio track disabled with only the video track remaining.

Youtube has some cognitive dissonance.

Fun fact: When I googled for "a thing called love" from the US all the results are were centered in South East England with a few in Germany and Switzerland. That was pretty interesting.

That Glen Campbell + Jerry Reed link is awesome. Jerry Reed was a good guitar player- he just ruined his career by making Smokey and the Bandit movies.

I always preferred to call love a little crazy.

It kills me that 6'6", 235 (or, as Campbell sings it, 245) pounds is considered a "giant of a man."

Oh, and I prefer Don Hertzfeldt's take on the subject.

Love is a Rose, imo

Love is like an itching in my heart

Didn't know Jerry Reed wrote that great, great song. Thanks Vronsky. The Imperials were wonderful, even if their name could be substituted for The Aristocrats, in a punch line. (Wouldn't you like to hear the Imperials sing that Finnish polka?)

This is not a love song.

Also: It must be love (Sorry, couldn't resist.)

What with the thorns and the itching and all, I think we can agree that love hurts.

What a horrible song.
And that first link is some of the most whitey white whitiest singing ever.

The Imperials were wonderful

Well, they were before Little Anthony left and somebody replaced the rest of the band with white folks.

Love is like a butterfly -- a rare and gentle thing.
