Is there a porn category for that?

Hot male musicians/artists making lots of sexy eye contact with the camera while they do their thing. This is my porn, but I don't have luck finding much of it. Point me to more?

Examples: Stray Cat Strut. Need You Tonight. Fortress Around Your Heart. This commercial. Bonus points for arm-vein porn and lean/slender pretty boys in eyeliner (Dave Navarro, Billie Joe Armstrong, Brian Setzer, Johnny Depp, etc... but not a fan of emo, k-pop, Pete Wentz or Adam Lambert). Thanks Metafilter!

nirvana unplugged in new york is chock full of tortured, smoldering kurt cobain eyes. he'll have them clenched tight through most of a song, then reach the climax of the chorus and stare straight into the camera.

Does Chris Isaak's 'Wicked Game' count?

One of the several videos for U2's "One" has Bono smoldering into the camera.

This is probably completely not what you're going for, but White Lion's "Wait" technically fits the bill.

D'Angelo "Untitled (How Does it Feel)." Bonus points for booty groove.

I think Il Divo is hot.

Response by poster: I knew I could count on MeFi - thank you all! Keep 'em coming! (Heh.)

@komara, Chris Isaak is one of my favorites. Wicked Game is pretty good but Baby Did a Bad Bad Thing is better. Thanks for the reminder.

@milk white peacock, that reminds me of Beautiful Agony. And that is awesome.

Bloodbuzz Ohio by The National.
Freaks and Geeks by Childish Gambino (aw man, the last 20 seconds of that video- his confidence is so sexy!).

This popped into my head the second I read your question.

Response by poster: @pseudostrabismus, the cockiness in the Freaks and Geeks video is kinda right on target - I hate that kind of attitude with a passion in real life, and yet it makes me horny in play. Thanks! ;)

@lucia_engel, that was a surprise - very good choice, thank you!

@HotPatatta, she's portraying wounded instead of sexy, she's a she, and I find her annoying - but I definitely do understand why it popped into your head!

I suspect Michael Hutchins will give you some choices in this category.

I'm Too Sexy For My Shirt?

Neither is solid camera-gazing, but maybe it'll help.

Faith No More's Mike Patton singing "Easy"

No one mentioned Gotye???

Also here's the video that made me realize that Sam Roberts is really hot. However, he's not looking at the camera. You do get a good view of his blue eyes tho.

Also, if there's anyone who knows how to smoulder, it's Rufus Wainwright.

there should be a porn category for this :)

I got a bit excited, and forgot to link the Sam Roberts.

Oh, and here's a really weirdly nerdy suggestion: I've always found the Venezuelan conductor Gustavo Dudamel really hot.

Depeche Mode - Shake The Disease
The Wallflowers - One Headlight (included since extreme close-ups of Jakob Dylan's pretty eyes make up for the sad lyrics)
Darren Hayes - So Beautiful

I dimly remember the video for Glycerine by the band Bush being like this, but can't find it to confirm. Plus don't know if whatisface fits your requirements.

Would the original video for Mad World by Tears for Fears count? It has a lot of soulful gazing into the middle distance, and skinny guys dancing.

A lot of Billy Idol videos have him staring at the camera:
Billy Idol - Eyes without a Face
Billy Idol - Flesh for Fantasy
Billy Idol - Rebel Yell

(ah, that sneer!)

Bob Dylan - "Subterranean Homesick Blues"

Skinny, tight jeans, legs spread, disdainful expression, long take, lyrical brilliance.

Basically I want to have all of Andrew Bird's babies, anatomical problems not-with-standing.

Just came in to mention the Afghan Whigs videos research monkey mentioned (I love the Gentlemen video so much; it's like a deliriously fucked up episode of Beverly Hills 90210), although it might depend on how you feel about Greg Dulli's self-loathing lothario schtick.

More Dulli, if you like those:

Afghan Whigs: Honky's Ladder
Afghan Whigs: Something Hot

Possibly of interest:

the Whigs in their first TV appearance, looking young and adorable: Debonair on Conan O'Brien

This is what Tim Wheeler of Ash was put on this earth for. Start with Girl from Mars. Thanks for the question!

The music video for Elton John's "I Want Love" consists entirely of four minutes of Robert Downey Jr staring into a camera and lip-syncing. IT IS THE GREATEST MUSIC VIDEO EVER.

Bonus: all RDJ singing in Ally McBeal.
(dear Avengers movie franchise, needs more Iron Man musical numbers plz KTHX)

Also, i hate Damien Rice but this video is pretty erotic

I love, love, love this video of Al Green on Soul Train from 1973, although it's criminally cut short when they cut to commercial. It just jumps with joyful, celebratory sexuality.
