The Weird Side of You Tube - Music Edition

If you watch YouTube videos late at night (or early in the morning, rather) and you are lucky, you may have experienced what I like to call "entering the weird side of You Tube".  This is a wonderful and happy place where nobody wants to leave ever. This phenomenon occurs after about an hour of watching video after video.  Here is how it works:

It may start out as watching a music video or a clip of your favorite show.  You Tube sucks you in further and further as it suggests related videos for you to watch.  These videos are exciting and interesting so you click on them.   You can't help yourself. Soon it feels as though the videos are clicking on you.  You can't click on enough videos.  Sometimes you click on a video promising yourself you will hit the back button and watch a different one you passed up once you are done but you can't because the newly suggested videos at the end of the ones you clicked on are even more glorious.  Inevitably you will cross into the Weird Side of YouTube.  Some stay a while, some leave quickly but once you cross over, it doesn't matter.  Time doesn't exist in this dimension.  some have never left...

--- Anyway, here are some music related videos that I brought back.  I am an experienced traveler:
