Funtime

You may well be aware of this, but I've only stumbled upon it comparatively recently. It's a short video comprising extracts from David Bowie & Mick Jagger's 'Dancing in the Street' clip.....minus the music. The uploader removed the song, then added various incidental noises for comic effect - and it's a hoot. Apparently Bowie himself even thought so. This is Ben Monder, who played guitar on 'Blackstar', recalling the atmosphere during the recording sessions. 'I remember us watching this thing...somebody did a series of music videos without the music. Somebody did one of those for the video he (Bowie) did with Mick Jagger for "Dancing In The Streets." But there's no music, just footsteps and grunts and burps and stuff like that. He thought that was hilarious and would just have us watch the whole thing.'

Bowie's entrance gets me every time.

I have seen this before along with the others that were doing the rounds. This was one of my faves: https://youtu.be/CDXNfe2W8c8 although you can't beat Jagger burpng and Bowie's Tarzan impression.....

Inspired.

That's really funny. Just an average night of two of the all-time greatest rock legends acting like idiots and drinking beer they found on the street.

On the upside, we're not subjected to the song!

Possibly the worst cover version ever, redeemed.

Swede, I know how hard this loss has been for you. Posting this means you're smiling again. That makes me smile too.

I'm glad everyone enjoyed this as much as I did. It's worth checking out the rest of Mario Wienerroither's similar videos. I don't know the respective originals as well as I do the Bowie/Jagger clip, but the ones I've watched so far are all pretty funny.
