  1. So I can’t watch these now but I think an hour or two of tomorrow has suddenly become free so I can watch all of these.
    This is making me feel much better about getting out of bed in the morning.

    Also, fyeah Shiny Toy Guns!!

  2. Um, that Ellektra video is really something. I’m not sure I’ve ever been to a party like that… heh.

  3. woah, very interesting way to wake up seeing your own video posted on auto straddle top of the page first thing in the morning.. :)

    • also just realized that this vid was used for the article’s little icon thing. #thingsnotnoticedonmymobile

  4. so many studs in the jessie j video, but the make-out was between two long haired blonds..

    missed opportunity

  5. I WAS GONNA GO TO THE POST OFFICE. And now, i’m lying around watching these. you guys are terrible for my postal needs

  6. oh tatu… good times, i especially loved “not gonna get us” and their newish song, but all i can think of them now every time i hear their name is this: http://i.imgur.com/G89Rn.jpg (the black-haired girl julia volkova then, and now)

    src and background story: http://www.reddit.com/r/pics/comments/im79c/dear_god_what_has_she_done_to_herself_anybody/

    oh and another FINE song featuring two HOT ladies making out to a david lynch song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rWzy7Wk_6ZU

  7. I know there’s only bits and pieces of lesbian action, but I really like Kylie Minogue’s “All The Lovers” video. It’s all sorts of sexy…I could just be looking at Kylie though, so I don’t know.

  8. Once upon a time little adolescent me was completely fascinated by the “Whiskey in the Jar” video. Thank you for reminding me

  9. So, Whiskey in the jar had been my favourite song ever since hearing it in Ireland during my summer vacation after 7th grade – but I had no idea there was a video with girl-on-girl action.

    Also, “She” by Groove Coverage. Granted, there could be much more making out in this video, and the man is kind of superfluous, but still. http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMjMyOTEyOTI0.html

  10. guys…..i was supposted to go running like 1 hour ago…….shit on a stick these videos bring back memories.

    also you should have added the megan rapinoe song because i mean what more could you want

  11. I can just picture Madonna and her video producer having heated conversations and Madonna getting all frustrated and going “MORE GREYSCALE LESBIAN SCENES. MORE.”

    • I just read the new George R.R. Martin book in which greyscale is a debilitating disease, so when I saw “greyscale lesbian scenes” I got very confused and was like “infection porn?”

  12. When I was a young ‘un who still hadn’t figured out I liked the ladies, I would watch the video for “All The Things She Said” aaaall the time. It somehow took me a few more years to figure things out.

  13. I have such mixed feelings about Tatu. I hate the fake lesbian thing, but they do believe in lgbt rights I think and have faced death threats because of that, etc. Hmmm.

  14. As someone who watched a whole lot of Babylon 5 as a teenager, WHAT IS GOING ON IN THAT CLAUDIA CHRISTIAN VIDEO. WHAT. IS. GOING. ON.

  15. huww fake lesbian thing, but they do believe in lgbt rights I think and have faced death threats because of that, etc
