4 / 7

Dead Man's Bones' "In The Room Where You Sleep" live with Silverlake Conservatory of Music Children's Choir

Context (via YouTube summary): "We shot this at the wrap party for our album. All the kids wore costumes, we had a taco truck and a bouncy house and face painting." The whole self-titled debut album, released in 2009, was a collaboration with these kiddos.

And the "Dead Man's Bones" music video

Context: The music video for Gosling's band's self-titled song from their self-titled 2009 album.

Swoon factor: Not abnormally high, as he doesn't actually appear. Great to see a skeleton dancing so vigorously to Gosling's musical stylings, though.
