So those of you who talk to me fairly often probably already know that I collect songvids. (And index them. Because I have obsessive organization problems.) I have 8+ hours of songvids. Really.

I just added some stuff to my comedy-favorites playlist. Good comedy vids are harder to make (or so I understand) than good drama, and a lot of the thing on this playlist are dramatic too -- constructed reality vids, for example, or vids where the song choice is underlying snark at characters or the concept of the show. So subtle funny, which is the best kind. A comic song does not a funny vid make, but sometimes it really works.

Anyway, I thought I'd post the contents of said playlist here in case anyone is interested. This playlist starts with broader humor and heads subtle as it goes -- 22 vids for a total of about an hour and ten minutes. The lj cuts are there for people who might only be interested in a few fandoms; if all them lj-cuts irritate you, you can just click through and read all the way down.

I start off nice and meta with Jackie K.'s "If You Were In My Movie," song by Suzanne Vega. Read more... )

And the I go through a whole bunch of vignette-type vids, which can use one-shot jokes because they only last for fifteen seconds. One Sick Fuck Production's "Cheap Shots" and "Highlander - Cheap Shots" are a bunch of songs cut together, so a bunch of artists. Read more... )

The other vignette vid I particularly like is Waldo's "Polka Party," song by Weird Al. Read more... )

Alasen's "Istanbul (Not Constantinople)" is a single-vignette vid, about forty seconds long. Read more... )

Karoli's Smallville vid to "I Can Change" from the South Park Movie is one of the ultimate comedy vids. Read more... )

The vidder here probably didn't mean this vid to be funny. It's supposed to be a heartfelt mix of song and clips and emotions. But it is so hilarious. Because Phoenix vidded Mulder/Krycek. To Britney Spears. "... Baby One More Time." Read more... )

Then a vid where the song choice really makes the vid funny, although this one is intentional. Vyra did a Buffy season six vid to... "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life." Read more... )

Songs without lyrics are often difficult to vid to, but Fangirl pulls it off with a Firefly vid to "Go Go Cactusman," the Cowboy Bebop theme. Read more... )

Wendy came up with a perfect, perfect song choice for a vid about the Mayor: "You're Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile." Read more... )

Lithium Doll did a vid about the Firefly crew pulling their stunts to "Good Ol' Boys," the Dukes of Hazard theme. Read more... )

Then a multi-fandom vid by Diana Williams to "RESPECT" by Pink. This is also probably not supposed to be a comedy vid. Read more... )

Sisabet's "Cowboy," to the Kid Rock song, is both a serious character study and a good comic vid at the same time. Read more... )

Crazygrrl did an excellent Angel/Buffy vid to Prozzak's "Strange Disease." Read more... )

Then I do two constructed reality vids. Constructed realities aren't always funny -- Killa and T. Jonesy's "Closer" is the best constructed reality vid I've ever seen and isn't funny at all. Wrenching and horrible and really wonderfully done. /tangent.

The first is Soappocrates' "If I Were a Drinker," song by Travis Tritt. Read more... )

Killa and Carol S. did a Highlander constructed reality to "Opportunities," song by the Pet Shop Boys. Read more... )

Then another Killa vid, this time with T. Jonesy and Hafital: a Captain Kirk character study to "Razzle Dazzle," performed by Richard Gere. Read more... )

Then a Highlander vid by Luminosity to "Not a Virgin Anymore," song by Poe. Read more... )

Pamela J. Smith did a wonderful SG-1 vid to "Dead" by TMBG. Read more... )

And look, it's another Killa vid, this time with Melina. Amanda-themed to Rockapella's "Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?" Read more... )

Well, you can beat it with [livejournal.com profile] sineala's wonderful, wonderful "Sorry," an X-Files vid to the Nerf Herder song. Read more... )

And that's it, finally. Those of you who were wondering if I was ever going to post about fandom again are probably very sorry now. *g*
