Happy Halloween, everyone! In honour of the best day of the year, we’re going back into the vaults for one of the greatest videos ever made, and certainly the best Halloween-themed music video of all time: Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”.
If it wasn’t for my trip to Italy this summer, I probably wouldn’t even know who Serebro were, but in Europe, the girls are a big deal. Their video for “Mama Lover,” their biggest hit, and one of the biggest singles to ever come out of Russia, has been seen millions of times on YouTube, and the song is totally fun and infectious.
If you haven’t seen or at least heard of Psy’s “Gangnam Style”, what rock have you been living under? This video might be one of the hottest things on the planet, and it’s also one of the best music videos I’ve ever seen.
Last year turned out pretty well for this little blog series I like to call Video Hits, so I wanted to start 2012 off right with a song that would kick some ass, and I think I found it with The Balconies’ “Kill Count”.
The last five years have suddenly flown by now that Amy Lee–and her latest incarnation of Evanescence–is back with a new album called, appropriately enough, Evanescence. The title suggests this is the real Evanescence, at least until someone leaves again, but the only part I really care about is that the album definitely does not suck.
OK Go have made some kick-ass music videos, but as a fan of the Muppets I think I can safely say this is one of the greatest music videos of all time.
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.
