Pink Me

(no subject)

Okay, on New Year's Day, a video was (quite appropriately) posted to this community, of a New Year's Day video montage thing. Basically, a video comprised of clips from several different New Year's Day performances over the years, set to one audio track.

I decided it was only appropriate that I completely steal the idea, and make a Streets montage. Two evenings of work, one headache, and four program crashes later, it was finished:

That video again

Hi Everyone,
Sorry if there's a better place I should be posting this, but I can't find any more threads anywhere about who's who in the Skies video. I was following along before I headed out of town for the holidays (where I was internetless), and when I got back I couldn't find anything about the video anymore on Interference or atU2 or anything new on U2log. But there are still a lot of unsolved mysteries, no? Does anyone want to weigh in on these (or point me in the right direction for people still talking about this video)?

00:23 Ella Fitzgerald, right?
00:40 Trent Reznor (NIN) (or Dave Grohl?)
00:57 Cozy Powell?? Paul Cook? Topper Headon? (the clash) (drummer)
01:01 Sam Cooke? (fancy dancer)
01:04 Temptations or Four Tops? (line of fancy dancers)
01:13 ??? (blue drummer)
01:55 The Temptations, yeah?
02:29 Shirley Manson (Garbage)?
02:36 Jackie Wilson?
02:38 Smokey Robinson? Sam Cooke? ("oh no" singer)
02:46 Smokey Robinson (Caruso?)
02:55 Ronnie Spector? Dusty Springfield?
03.02 Queen?
03:03 ?? (backlit)
03.11 ??? shirt off, white pants kick (someone wrote P Funk?)
03:16 ??? two guys kicking
03:37 Maybe Pete Seeger? Or Carl Wilson of the Beach Boys? Or The Band?
03:44 Nirvana (Kris Novoselic)? Someone said Pete Townsend but that doesn't seem right...'

Thanks!! Also, I noticed the second video for Skies on YouTube (the U2 clips) wasn't posted by U2official, but it says U2.com in the upper right of the video itself-- so is it in fact an official release from U2 and if so why wasn't it posted by U2official?
