History Music Videos

Last week, while trolling through the video section of Consimworld Social Network, I stumbled across this Napoleon music video.  I thought it was cute and fun, along with providing a decent thumbnail synopsis of the Napoleonic Era.
My curiosity quickly led me to the Historyteachers Channel on YouTube.  I'm certainly not the first to take notice of this.  The teacher/performing duo, Amy Burvall and Herb Mahelona, have been shooting history music videos since 2008.  Here's some details in Gawker, while ArtTrav interviewed Amy, the lead singer early last year.
While watching these videos doesn't replace in-depth study of a topic, they're fun to watch and are more than just your average internet distraction.

Cool! Thanks for the post, Ted. I sort of like the retro-sound. Also, the upcoming release of Black Powder's Albion supplement has rekindled an interest in Nap's. Best, Dean

You're welcome Dean. I'm a big 80s music fan myself. I've been reading the message traffic about the Albion supplement. I'll have to get Black Powder first! :)
