MUSIC VIDEOS

Recommended Posts

music videos used to be awesome.

they used to compliment the music.

they used to be a joy to watch.

you used to look forward to seeing what video your favorite band was going to put out next.

 

not anymore.

 

music videos are bland, boring, and for the most part not worth watching. you turn on mtv and what do you see? song after song after song of one of (or all) three things:

 

1. a fashion show

2. a car/jewellery/possesion show

3. softcore porn

 

or at least that's all that finds it's way to the mainstream surface. you may catch the occasion hum dinger at 3 in the morning, but you most definately won't see it at prime time. i'm not going to watch the mtv/vh1 etc channels day and night to try and catch something awesome, so now is the time to share amongst your 12oz peers.

 

please post up any awesome videos, old or new, classic or forgotten, for everyone to enjoy. there are still some great music artists and video directors out there, so let's give em a little shine.

 

*note - please refrain from posting the actual videos in the thread, but post links instead. also try to include some insight into what you like about the video, or a fond memory you have of the video if you can. thanks

 

here's a few that i have enjoyed over the years:

 

bjork has some amazing videos

bachelorette (also a fantastic song. gives me chills)

it's all so quiet

 

 

weezer - buddy holly

 

peter gabriel - sledgehammer

 

a-ha - take on me

 

michael jackson - thriller

 

outkast - B.O.B. great use of color, and conveys the hyperactivity of the song really well.

 

the pharcyde - drop ...mindbending

 

jack johnson - sitting, waiting, wishing more reverse fun

 

beastie boys - sabotage yet another spike jonze masterpiece

 

aphex twin

come to daddy

windowlicker

easily two of the best music videos ever made

 

 

prodigy - smack my bitch up suprise ending

 

 

 

there are so many good ones that i just can't think of right now, so i hope other people remember them. at any rate, i hope everyone joins in cos i know there's a zillion rad videos out there that i haven't seen.

I've decided that this is the most perfect music video ever made:

 

 

 

Michel Gondry (directed a whole bunch of Björks videos) is a fucking genius. It pisses me off that he came up with something so simple and perfect.

"Hurt"

 

Nine Inch Nails

I absolutely love both these videos. But Mark Romanek fucking crushed with Cash's version.

how do you post youtube videos without a youtube account?

 

when the video player screen comes up, scroll down a bit and it has the link to the video
