Best kinetic typography video ever! See how many logos you can spot. It's sort of the suburban counterpart of DVNO!

I remember this one from when I was a wee one. Saw it on a show called Liquid Television.

I like this one, and if I could find the original in an uncut version that would make my day-- or even the song itself too.

It's fascinating how much kinetic typography has evolved though. :)

I remember that too! And yeah, Amore Baciami wasn't very kinetic... but it certainly was stylish!

I recognized maybe five logos; the rest were new to me.

Then of course there were a few more generic styles, such as the pavement stencil and freeway sign appearances in the first two lines (and they used Highway Gothic for the freeway sign! Whoever put this video together did their homework.)

But man, there's one that's driving me crazy... the line "We hung a flag above the door" (at 1:02). It looks tantalizingly familiar!

According to Identifont it's in Americana Bold. Maybe the font is just common.
