I promised the students in my unit this semester that I’d shove up the links to the YouTube clips I show during class each week. So here goes. If someone wants to create a Spotify or YouTube playlist, that would be lush.

Week 1: Defining Critical Moments in Popular Music

The first three were to help set the mood and pace, as I gathered breath after another truncated night’s sleep.

Kid Koala – Basin Street Blues

Kraftwerk – The Robots

Devo – Satisfaction

The next one was where I launched the lecture proper: pop music is never just about music.

Iceage – Ecstasy

The next one was my planned original start: one of my favourite songs of the past decade – with the additional fillip of the recent sexism shown towards the lady in certain sections of the media.

Beyoncé – Crazy In Love (live)

Lecture, part one.

The Clash – London Calling

Lady Gaga and Christopher Walken – Poker Face

Dexys Midnight Runners – Come On Eileen

Jefferson Airplane – White Rabbit

Lecture, part two.

Lana Del Rey – Video Games

PS22 – Price Tag

Thanks to Scott Creney, Brigette Adair Herron, Lisa Carver and Steve Dillon, whose words I quoted.
