OT: Best music vid you've seen
I laughed, I cried... from that hernia I popped for laughing so hard. The best satire video I can recall seeing.
That was satire, right?
"Wild in the Streets" by Garland Jeffreys. The song itself is from the early 70's, though I'm assuming the video was made fairly recently. Garland was known for his sound, blending rock, soul, blues and reggae. The video is a montage of street scenes from the mid 70's in New York, presumably The South Bronx. If you've ever wondered what the Hip-Hop culture looked like in its infancy check the video out, it gives you a pretty good idea of what was going on during the Pre-Bling Era of Hip-Hop.
Gets me everytime.
This is a video from my childhood that I haven't outgrown. Even if you don't like the music, the video is still pretty sweet.
DA BOOM NA DA MMM DUM NA EMA!
You can't give it away!
I'm talking the clown in "Poltergeist" creepy. I've seen a cut of that before, but never the source.
I'll file that under 'best of creepy videos that can claim to be music"
This is the first post of the "OMG GREAT MUSIC!" variety that I didn't do a face palm over. Call me over cautious, but I'm sure we all still remember the horror of "Woe, is me". Good find +1.
And one of my favorites will always be Ok Go and their treadmills
I heard Jon Bon Jovi interviewed on 'Fresh Air' kinda recently and he mentioned how he didn't care for making videos. I don't remember any Bon Jovi videos because I don't have to or want to, but clearly he never tried this sort of approach.
is the greatest music video of all time. However, it's extremely NSFW, so I don't think I'll be posting that one. Feel free to check it out on YouTube though....It's worth it.
Late night BET is where it's at.
I noticed the new comment editor, but is embedding videos broken?
plain text editor.
This is a great scene and a pretty kick ass song.
The nihilists must have made this video
either that or mozilla isn't letting me see your imbed.
I do love me some NOFX. It always has amazed me how much Fat Mike's voice has improved over the years. Compare S&M Airlines to this one:
damn you, you beat me to it! good call though, it doesn't get better than this
Bray Bray beat me as well. Sober blew away(and forever warped) my mind when I was a kid. This is my only 'remember where you were at the first time you saw it' video.
All their videos are great, but Sabotage is by far the best:
didnt even bother to read yours before putting up the samething. +1 to you.
spike jonze has done some of the best. example-beastie boys, sabotage (among several others). also daft punk.
U.N.K.L.E. - Rabbit in your headlights
I can't believe nobody has mentioned this one yet. Easily in my top 5 videos of all time:
Pearl Jam - Do The Evolution: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDaOgu2CQtI
To the OP, thanks for sharing that video. I absolutely love it. Great song too.
how about green jello/green jelly, "little pig, little pig"
I completely forgot about that one, +1 for bringing it back into my life.
Spaceman by The Killers is really good, though a bit odd.
I always liked Soundgarden - Black Hole Sun, but it kinda creeped me out.
gold plated tanks on a basketball court, how can you top that?
Recent favorite of mine...Ciara - "Ride"...make sure you watch it when youre alone
That almost made me a braves fan, +1 to you.
The lazy need to see this too-
none of these are really my favorite, but i feel like it's my duty to post some k-pop.
Here's Hyori back in her glory days, the pink sweats are nice.
This song has the honor of being the one most likely to stick in your head.
And this is just a commercial, but it's nice. =)
Primus is one of my all time favorites
Isis also has a few great vids, but I think In Fiction is the bestAnd finally Maynard bleats at the plebes
Ding ding ding!! Winner... I used to watch the first two videos on loop. First one was the "Whoa, i can't believe she's doing that in the mud." The second video, she's walking across a table with her butt. God bless her.
And they spin!
And since we're talking videos, I have to post this (NSFW due to gay slur used in a verse about 2:00-2:10).
Pretty amazing cover of YYZ. O_O
