Recently, I stumbled upon Bedazzled! via a Boing Boing link and now I can't quit going back. Cookie's got the hook-up for rare music footage from the Sixties and Seventies.

Bedazzled! features a healthy assortment of Scopitones (French-developed precursors to music videos that played on coin-operated "film jukeboxes" in bars), as well as bizarre TV appearances like The Beach Boys on The Mike Douglas Show singing "Never Learn Not To Love," which infamously began its life as a Charlie Manson composition called "Cease To Exist."

There's even a song from the ever-elusive Peppermint Trolley Company, best known as singers of The Brady Bunch theme during the first season before the kids started singing it themselves.

With a good broadband connection, you could easily piss away the whole weekend here.
