Today on Music Video Monday: “Weapon of Choice” by Fatboy Slim
I can’t just watch five seconds of this video.
Today on Music Video Monday: “I Fink U Freeky” by Die Antwoord
This is just a masterpiece of a video.
Today on Music Video Monday: “Sledgehammer” by Peter Gabriel
The music video is what sold me on this song as a kid. I can never watch it without trying to grasp how much work must have gone into making it. The “Sledgehammer” video was groundbreaking with its use of stop motion film and various animation media. If I recall correctly, filming the video involved Mister Gabriel lying underneath a glass/plastic pane for most of its production. According to the man himself, the only really unpleasant part was working with the fish, which started to smell. I admire his fortitude, but fortitude was something, I think, he possessed a lot of. What’s art without a little suffering?
Today on Music Video Monday: “A Whiter Shade of Pale” by Procol Harum
I believe this was their second video for this track, and, though some think it is the inferior of the two videos, I beg to differ.
Today on Music Video Monday: “Music Is My Hot Hot Sex” by CSS (Cansei de Ser Sexy)
This video gives me the sense that the band lost the footage to their original video and had to throw another one together last-second using all the outtakes.
