lip sync

Why is lip syncing so funny? Here are two of my favorite music videos essentially because of the lip-syncing. They also happen to both be great songs.

Fiona Apple, "Not About Love". I laugh out loud every time I see Zack in the water.

Paul Simon, "You Can Call Me Al".


 I recently watched a documentary about the making of the album Graceland, and Paul Simon walked through the development of each song. He talked about the meaning behind "You Can Call Me Al," the superficial yet newly significant concerns of modern man and the importance of having someone looking out for you. He thought the above video was too light for the weight of the song. I'm still glad it exists though (despite my dislike of Chevy Chase).
