>ELECTRIC YOUTH The long form of this eclectic video, gracefully acknowledging the agelessness of such people as George Burns and Bob Hope (not to mention Michael Jackson), is more fun. But even in the shorter version Debbie Gibson (who co-directed) squeezes in her grandpa, along with some contemporary fellow prodigies, such as Michael Jordan.

DRIVE SOUTH John Hiatt gets down in front of a shifting tableau that's part Southern Gothic, part Walker Evans.

NOW YOU'RE IN HEAVEN Julian Lennon revives vaudeville with a surreal ventriloquist act, using a dummy that keeps increasing in size to entertain a sparse, desperate-looking audience.
