With the passing of Dave Brubeck on Wednesday, one of the greatest innovators in jazz history is gone. 

 

Fortunately, there are decades of recordings, including this 1966 video of one of his best known hits, Take 5. Whether it's Take 5, Blue Rondo a la Turk, In Your Own Sweet Way and dozens of others, his use of non-traditional time signatures changed jazz forever and challenged all musicans that follow in his footsteps. If your collection is missing the legendary Time Out, you're missing something special.

So if you were one of the many people out there desperate for a remake of a music video that didn't involve Gangnam Style, here's your video.

I've never really liked Jimmy Kimmel, but every once in a while, something he doesn't do that's associated with his show goes viral. 

 

Like this video of parents telling their children that they ate all of their Halloween candy while they were asleep. 

 

If it sounds familiar, it's because it is. Kimmel did it last year.

It's like being there, if you're a camera instead of a person.

Psy's Gangnam Style has been lighting up YouTube for weeks, now it's lighting up a house... Halloween style. 

 

The video credits this 2011 video featuring the Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO as its inspiration.
