If Colin Farrell doesn't freak you out as the creepy vampire in the movie Fright Night, then Kid Cudi might just do the trick in his video "No One Believes Me," which is the first single from the film's soundtrack.
A video like Adele's "Rolling In The Deep" barely needs an introduction because it's just too damn good to describe. The woman is one of the most soulful singers around--someone I would actually buy tickets to see in concert, which I can't say of many artists right now...
Remember when Saturday Night Live was funny? Unless you're over the age of 30, you probably don't remember SNL being all that hilarious, but every so often the show has a moment of genius. Tina Fey was certainly a most excellent host this past weekend, but it was clearly the guys from The Lonely Island, with a little help from Michael Bolton, who stole the show.
"Blow" has the odd distinction of being one of the few music videos I've enjoyed in a long time. No "I'm so cool it hurts" schtick and no rap monologues--it's tongue-in-cheek, the song is acceptably enjoyable top 40, and oh yeah, it has James frikkin' Van Der Beek in it.
If you're feeling a little bit of Déjà vu, it's for a good reason. Yes, Video Hits already ran this week, but I'm so addicted to Royal Wood's "Do You Recall" that I decided I had to proclaim my rampant adoration with a second feature.
South of the border, down America way, you folks may not have heard of k-os, and I think that's a bleeding shame. The Canadian rapper and songwriter has four studio albums to his name, including 2009's Yes! which included the track below, "4 3 2 1," and one of k-os' all-time best tracks, the very addictive "I Wish I Knew Natalie Portman".
There are possibly only three good things about this video: Avril, Avril in her underwear, and oh, I don't know, Avril's vampire fangs (what can I say, they're kind of cute). The point is, this is one of those weeks where I feel more inclined to spotlight a new train wreck of a video that's worth at least watching for kicks than taking the time to hunt for something older and obviously far superior.
