First 140 Music Video

2141 Views 9 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  W126fahrer
If anybody is interested, there is an unmarked w140 SEL in Lenny Kravitz's "IS THERE ANY LOVE IN YOUR HEART " music video. I remember this video from MTV when I was 13. It stands out in my mind because there is this creepy looking vampire that hides in the trunk of a dark blue 140 SEL- its pretty cool. The song and video is from 1993, so the w140 was just a year old at the time in the U.S. You can find the video at www.lennykravitz.com. When you click in the video section, it will show all the albums- pick the 'Are Ya Gonna Go My Way' album and it will list it.

S-class Music Videos

That is an interesting video, with quite a nice W140. I've found a truly bizarre music video from a group called Massive Töne. I first discovered it when I saw a girl leaning against the hood of a 300SEL 6.3 for a promotion of the song. I just had to see the video, though I didn't see a 300SEL 6.3 There is a nice W220 featured however. The video is in German, and called "Cruisen". I always laugh when I see it, it just seems kind of pathetic. I think the first few words mean "we are the coolest, when we cruise, when we go through the city, we are the coolest, when the sweet ladies greet us with kisses, we are the coolest never the losers, becuase we rule when we cruse"

You can find it here http://www.massivetoene.de then click on "Hitsingles videos" to the left, scroll down and click cruisen.

Here's what caught my attention

This was the poster that caught my attention. I was disapointed to not see this car in the video however. Ibrahim83, are you talking about the Massive Töne video? How do you know about it? I think I can do without the song, as it's not really my kind of music. I did however download a higher quality version of the video off Kazzaa.

i bought a german CD compilation mix from europe, and my friend is half german half jordanian, and i'm used to the euro music scene from back home in jordan, the compilation is called bravo hits V38 among several other where you can get really good music. i usually go to eurpean charts and download almost everything off of them, the ketchup song? i had it since september, waaaaay before the states got a hold of them, tatu? same thing.

i tend to listen to european music rather than the music played here in the states which is a single song every month that is 99.9% rap and which i hear everywhere speakers are installed.

The music in europe.

I know exactley what you are talking about Ibrahim83. Most music is generally relased in europe quite a while before it reaches North America. A few years ago, I started listening to a radio station on the internet from Hamburg. I was quite surprised as some of the songs played over there started making it in north america six months later. I've also watched Viva and Viva Plus TV from Germany, though the streams were just stopped a few months ago. By the way someone has re done the ketchup song, and called it "Las Kanzler" making fun of Gehard Schröder, the chancellor of Germany. There is a lot more music availible in Europe compared to North America. As they have everything from europe availible as well as North America. One thing I dislike is how here in North America, most people aren't open to listening to music in other languages. However I find european and regular pop to be quite irritating. I do like the lesser known German rock and alternative. Have you heard of Sportfreunde-Stiller, Tocotronic or Blumfeld? I've also watched Onyx tv, and within an hour of watching it, I saw several music video with some very nice Mercedes, including a W111 Heckflosse.

well, i listen to lots of so called "unknown" artists like alize, kosheen, tiziano ferro, paola e chiara, sophie ellis baxtor, morcheeba. and many many more than i don't even know who sings them. and i do notice that european videos as well as commercials are much more open to nudity and profanity than over here, which depending on whom you ask, is good or bad.

yeah, when i used to live in jordan three years ago, i used to watch viva, 123sat, worldmusic, musica europa, and a much more music stations. and i keep refreshing my supplies every year or so when i go back visiting jordan and some parts of europe.

even american artists have some songs released over there before the states, like for example jennifer lopez's ain't it funny, which also took 6 monthes to make it here, and a new music video from nelly and justin timberlake which i heard was banned to play and it was export only being shot in europe only.

later.

Musik von Europa.

I like the fact that virtually no one knows of the bands I listen to. You're right they do show a lot more nudity than North American tv, yet it isn't degrading or offensive. Sure they may show things that would have to be covered up here, but it isn't degrading like a video from Christina Agiulera. Did you ever see Stereophonics' "Have a nice day", the european version? They had to redo their video for North America.

But anyways on the subject of Mercedes, did you ever see the video for a song called Kumba yo? It was with Michael Mittemeiere and the Guano Apes. They feature two old beatup Mercedes, and they run a W126 off a ramp, if I remember correctly.

acctually its artful tasty nudity, not offensive at all! well, maybe to people over here. christina aquilera? u mean slutty, right?
my opinion is that videos here portray women as sex objects, while the europeans view them as objects of lust and desire. again depending on teh video, sometimes they don't stand for anything, they're just like everyone else dancing there.

it's sad seeing sex selling music too, even sex is dictating what we "hear" these days.


and no, i haven't seen the video, although i'd like to see it, i'll look it up in kazaa.

i noticed a W126 that seemed ok in te movie rat race, where goldberg and her daughter drive down the mountain, then it shows the car crashing, there's a W126 between the wrecked cars down there if you look fast enough. thought it was cool.

later.

You are quite right about the videos, there nudity is quite different. It isn't what is shown, it is how it is shown.

I downloaded Kumba Yo just a few minutes after seeing your post. Though you may want to try looking for Guano Babes, rather than Guano Apes. Although they are called the Guano Apes, they are called the babes for this video. They really torture the W126. It has quite a hard landing after they jump over another car. The W126 is also in flames in some sections of the video.

Yes, I remember that W126 quite well in Rat Race. I saw that movie just after my parents bought their 560SEL, so I remember seeing remember seeing that car quite vividly.
