If you’ve got some spare time on your hands, a fun internet rabbit hole to fall down is the YouTube channel of Mario Wienerroither, who creates Musicless Musicvideos. This ingenious web user does … pretty much what the name implies: Removes the music from music videos.
The results are hilarious and sometimes terrifying, as is the case with the latest viral video from the user, David Bowie and Mick Jagger’s 1985 cover of Martha and the Vandellas’ classic “Dancing in the Street.”
The music video is scary enough with music, but without music it’s like Bowie and Jagger did some drugs and just acted crazy for 60 seconds — though, come to think of it, that’s probably what they did do to make this music video.
Other faves from Mr. Wienerroither include Michael Jackson’s “The Way You Make Me Feel” and Jamiroquai’s “Virtual Insanity.” You should definitely check them out.
