Planning is not my thing: except when it comes to travel. I know when and how NOT to miss any opportunities when I have them. Like that time in Paris where I had every whole day planned out included metro stops and packed in as many tourist stops in a few days because precious time is not to be wasted.
But even though I knew that I was going to make a list of my fave Spoof fan video’s shortly after I started this blog, it didn’t occur to me to plan this with a day like today until the wee hours this morning. As usual all credit goes to the vidders; my uttermost gratitude and respect to the entertainment they bring!
Laughter is the best medicine!!
5. You can’t Hurry Love by MissHale78 – Monet is not an evident character to spoof but he’s so adorably funny!!
4. Striking Porter – by Bccmee – this lady has the wickest sense of humor!
3. Spooks (Parody or Disaster) by JulietD001 – it’s tough picking from her Spoofs as she has some priceless Robin Hood one’s too but this song is perfectly interpreted!!
2. F.U.N. Song by GiztheGunslinger – Warning – major SPOOF alert!!
It is difficult to just pick one but it seems many agree it truly is a number ONE!
What makes these fanvids so fabulous is the fact that by pulling and editing clips together to music and the occasional use of audiotrack your perception of the characters portrayed in BBC’s Robin Hood becomes different or enhanced depending on the take of the vidder of each fanvid. The tone of a song sets a mood and if the song doesn’s speak to you there is no way of liking the subject matter. On the other hand sometimes the subject matter makes a song likeable!! LOL It explains a lot of the content on my iPod!!
I don’t think I’m done with my lists; there are too many sexy Guy vids, too many storyline vids; too many unknown vidders who then make this ONE brilliant vid!
Warning!! This might prove to be too romantic for the cynics amongst you …
First off, I might as well link this channel http://www.youtube.com/user/salazarlp i love all her song choices! Her Switchfoot – You – North and South fanvid tops it for me but i love all her Snow patrol choices as well, not to mention “Built to last” and “The Reason” in fact all hers could easily be my number one; mainly for the song choices.
Meanwhile I’ve been laboring over this list and have had to pull out a lot because quite a few would get blocked in other countries. Two of my favorites by Melodia are not even on YT any longer. Avid viewers might remember her “Closer” and “She’s got no Time”
Some of these entered my library not so long ago and I’m curious which one’s are surprises, which one’s you miss on this list. I did have to work HARD to trim it back to 10!! YouTube’s restrictions made it ironically easier …
10. Margaret: into Dust by Mandy; another recent surprise being a fan of Mazzy Star i just love this and her take on the character
Lucas North appeared famously in Season 7 of British spy series Spooks. He hoodwinked us all 3 seasons long. I know for some its even painful to see anything related to Season 9, hence counting down the first 5 vids use S7 &S8 clips; the top 5 have spoilers for Season 9!
As a musicfan and Richard Armitage fan viewing these vids are pure joy. Thanks for all the talent and time put into making these!! Love you guys!!
The music so often speaks for itself, i am curious which ones stand out for others …
10. Spooks (Parody or disaster) by JulietD001: since I’m a huge King of Leon’s fan it wasn’t too hard to love this. I believe this is her first spoof of Spooks and she nailed it! Her Robin Hood’s spoofs are amongst my favorite but I’ll save those for another time.
9. Spies by Lisa – the song says it all
8. Sweet Dreams by Manipenni – (not so sweet .. or is it?)
7. People are strange by DelicateBlossom – super song that covers the tone of Spooks
6. Time is running out by Spikesbint – this song by Muse is muted on YouTube – luckily i found it on Vimeo and aren’t they always running out of time on Spooks 😉
5. Lucas North – Fall Away by KatSw3 – Epic vid from an Epic vidder
4. Lucas North ‘The Water’ by JulietD001 – love this song and very poignant given Richard Armitage’s feelings about water
3. Sorrow by Bccmee – expresses all the fans feelings what happened to Lucas North’s character
2.Spooks – Secrets by utubeacct2008 – Lots of secrets as it turned out and OneRepublic is fantastic!
1. Lucas North – running up that Hill by MissHale78 – this young italian vidder does some great artistic work – check out “Hurricane” as well and love Placebo’s cover of Kate Bush’s song.
6. spikesbint – Too Lost : though “I want Candy” was a DL first, I’m just too much in love with this song besides doesn’t it say why we’re here?
5. vogonfanvids – Your Love is my Drug : So often the past year I come to cRAzy music because of fanvids 🙂
4. DelicateBlossom – Lullaby : showcases Mr. Armitage sweetness he brings to his characters
3. GiztheGunslinger – Filmstar : the song says it all …
2. Behind Blue Eyes – This Night : this song & vid showcases so beautifully the darkness & sadness of some of his characters
1. JamieR’s “all the above” Was my very first download and still a big favorite. Love how that punch hits the beat! (mobile viewer: Sorry! YT changed the settings randomly on this vid as I know Jamie gave permission months ago for mobile viewing!)
