The Music Video Thread

Post by Munki » Thu Aug 30, 2007 8:45 am

Figured... there are lots of good creative Music Videos out there... we should have a thread for em!

This is one of the best videos I have ever seen, and to make it even cooler I'm sure it also is one of the cheapest ever made lol



I've never been a big fan of this song, but I thought the video was pretty awesome... I particularly liked the 'Bruce Lee' section :)



Fatboy + Christopher Walken = Win :)



Another one of my favorites. Best Part? The Couch being 'dead'.

I consider this a music video :D

/edit - I can't BELIEVE noone posted the greatest music video ever!!! (not really, but it's still catchy)

Dog carcass in alley this morning, tire tread on burst stomach. This city is afraid of me. I have seen it's true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"...

...and I'll look down, and whisper "no."

I wanted to reply to Skuppy, but I also didn't feel it would be right to ever post here without a contribution. So here's a fun Aphex Twin video. This video which is NOT SAFE FOR WORK includes

1) A lot of swearing
2) An awesome dance number
3) The creepiest "women" I've ever seen

Thread Revival!

I was looking up (randomly) youtube videos of Elite Beat Agents, which lead me to this video. The song is ok (it's catchy in an alternapop sorta way) but I thought the video was clever and quite cool

Because I'm a little on the bored side right now, I thought I'd link another couple videos I liked:

Ok Go - This video was just so simple yet awesome:

It's long. It 'loves' kids. It is quite possibly one of his best songs. It is almost definitely one of his top videos. And he turns in to a freakin Robot (although not in this upload it appears /sadface).
It can only be... the glory of Moonwalker.

I just got to say. Watching this truly made me sad MJ self destructed the way he has. His music was truly good for it's time and he was seriously a fantastic dancer.

Another one in the vein of Daft Punks Around the World... also superbly done.
Avalanche - Frontier Psychiatrist


I'm posting this more because seeing Big Willie as a snot nosed 'geek hip hop' star again makes me smile.


I've actually never seen this. But I'm posting it so I can have not 1, but TWO 10 minute music videos in this post!
Weird Al - Trapped in the Drive-Thru


I could post so many Gorrilaz videos, as they are almost all really awesome. Instead I'll just hit up my two favorites:

I chose the soulchild remix version of the song, as I like it more than the original. But it is still the same video (just a little sped up)

For some reason some of the ones Tamayo linked made me think of another cool one I always enjoyed:

Everything but the Girl: The Future of the Future. Reminds me a lot of the Come in to my World video.



Another brilliant video: Cibo Matto's Sugar Water. It takes a little while to figure out what is happening, but once you 'get' it, it is really cool.

Maybe that only happens when you try to have more than one vid running at the same time but that's only a guess. I've not experienced that issue. Try playing a vid and then making sure it's stopped completly before starting another.
