Posts Tagged "Music Video"
There were no good TV shows on Monday night. My usual shows, Chuck, How I Met Your Mother and The Chicago Code were all reruns.
Anyway, I decided to watch a bunch of music videos tonight and figured, hell, why not list ‘em so you guys could see what I watched?
Anyway, here they are:)
- Kanye West - Can’t Tell Me Nothing This is the video directed by and starring Zach Galifianakis. Will Oldham (aka Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy) is also in the video. The story I’ve heard is that Kanye saw Galifianakis’ video with Fiona Apple (below) and wanted Galifianakis to make a video for him. So Galifianakis went to his farm and made a video. Whether this is apocryphal or not, this is what I want to have happened so it is what I believe.
- Fiona Apple - Not About Love — Again, most likely apocryphal, but the two were friends and lived near each other and she wanted Galifianakis to star in a video with her, so they created this in one day with the help of another one of their friends. Must be nice to have friends who are so talented.
- Arcade Fire - The Suburbs — And now, as Monty Python said, for something completely different. This features scenes from a short film that Spike Jonze, music video legend and feature film director, directed called “Scenes From the Suburbs.” It is pretty disturbing and… yeah. Definitely worth watching, though.
- LCD Soundsystem - Drunk Girls — In a word? Anarchic. That’s about the best way I can describe it.
- LCD Soundsystem - Daft Punk is Playing At My House — Another fun video, this one isn’t as crazy as Drunk Girls, but is still a fun little video.
- John Tesh - Roundball Rock — This is the theme for the NBA on NBC. Blame Bill Simmons for this one.
- Black Keys - Tighten Up — I like the Black Keys. And I like this video which involves puppy love on a playground. And some other stuff.
- Matt and Kim - Cameras — What happens whenrecording a song isn’t going very well for Matt and Kim? Well, get in a Celebrity-Deathmatch-style fight, of course. Oh, and there is a Making Of video!
