MY VOTE FOR THE FIRST STEAMPUNK SONG / VIDEO

As it appears to be only about 18 months old (that cgi must have been in the last 5 at the very least), I don't think it can qualify as the first steampunk video. And how does a song about heroin have anything to do with steampunk? It's not impossible of course (in fact The Men Who... could well have done one) but I'm curious where you see it in this one?
I speak in syllabubbles. They rise to the surface by the force of levity and pop out of my mouth unneeded and unheeded.
Cry "Have at!" and let's lick the togs of Waugh!
Arsed not for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for tea.

The original, shorter 1981 version might qualify as Victorian-retro but if we're going on whether there's the odd Pith helmet or two in a video then we might just as well include this from 1979, It's got Fez's as well... :)

I think the whole problem is there is no such thing as steampunk , its just a collection of associations based on a concept that never  was i.e. we are not using steam driven pcs to harness the power of moon .

Unlike Punk there's no definitive sound or groups using it other than what Id call " dark cabaret " that i think of either , even that could easily  fall into other sub genres unless they happen to be wearing costumes ( which kinda defeats the point of the music doesn't it ? )

Anywars.. i was saving this for my SBIG thread.. oh well

.....

The theme written by Ennio Morricone has am old fashioned 1960s orchestral quality that reminds me of Henry Mancini themes.


Speaking of which:
Henry Mancini - Hatari! (Theme from "Hatari!" Original Soundtrack)

And similar:  Henry Mancini - Lujon
https://youtu.be/ecz3LwWOZkI

And really nicely curated sound (probably remastered):
Henry Mancini - Baby Elephant Walk

Henry Mancini - A Shot in the Dark
https://youtu.be/Jjq0WDvapow

Henry Mancini - The Pink Panther Theme  ;D
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OPc7MRm4Y8&feature=kp

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I posted this on another thread... A most interesting Samba/Bossa Nova song, as interpreted by Sami singer Sofia Jannok (indigenous from Lapland region of Norway/Sweden/Russia).  The song is probably most likely Brazilian and some of the lyrics are in Portuguese, but I think she's mixing Sami as well...  Most interesting.

Love Siouxie....   Great artist. And love the way she looks in "Peekabo."  Great 1930's Betty Boop / Weimar Era cabaret vibe.  

Garbage.. Ah, yes.  The girl with the sleepy eyes.

Robert Plant.. post Zep.

zydeco, cajun, mardi gras songs
some real old stuff like this
Cajun Mardi Gras Song
and "iko iko" aka "jockamo"
Iko, Iko - the Dixie Cups

this songs chorus is actually  in  Kreyol Lwizian or "Louisiana Creole" and the singers sang it from memory
having learnt it from theri grandma without realy understanding the "patois"

if you are so inclined, listen carefully to the lyrics of "jockamo" and understand that in the early days
the lyrics referred to literal fights to the death between members of the Mardi Gras "Tribes"
capturing and burning the opposition's flag was a coup, and knife fights over the flags were common
with tragic endings.

little known facts:
"jockamo": 'jester' in the creol patios
spy boy:  a lookout or scout  for a band of "Indians" or "tribe"
flag boy or flagman:  flag carrier for a "tribe"
this song also incorporates (subtley) several elements of voodoo

here is a bit on the New Orleans Mardi Gras "Indians"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mardi_Gras_Indians

here are a few more

Or the team with the most flame-throwers.

Who wins these games? The man with the asbestos flag.

back in the day, it was the biggest, meanest, baddest, fastest man with a bowie knife -
the Red King -
in another version:

Lookat Dat King all dressed in red
iko iko aina
gonna take his knife and kill you dead
jackamo feenane

In voodoo The Red King channeled a murdurous spirit from the vengeful "Petwo realm" - much like a Viking Berserkergang

Terrible Knife fights were the order of the day when rival tribes met on the dark streets, and it was not until
the 1960's when the "Chief of Chiefs" Tootie Montana fought to bring an end to the violence and brought about the change
from masked street combat to a daylight challenge of "best dancer, best singer, and best costume" .

Tootie died June 27, 2005 but had accomplished his mission, and brought the songs and costumes to a new level.
