Favorite Music Videos or What are You Watching?

Sure we all (well those of us in this group at least for sure) like to listen to our favorite music, but have you stopped to appreciate the music videos that go with much of this music.. well since they came into prominence in the 80's  thanks to MTV  when we could all watch our favorite musicians and the great productions began.

 

There are so many fabuous music videos out there that you should really take a look at.  Which ones are your favorites?

Just watched "All you need is love", which was a global tv video, released on June 25, 1967. Which is why every June 25th is World Beatles Day. (I celebrate it every year, wearing my Fab 4️⃣ t shirt and only playing their music all day) This is my favorite song of theirs, as everyone knows, and it always helps me make it through the day. And fyi, at the end when Paul rips into "She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah" I am reminded of why I still love him lol 💜

Great timely topic now that we are trying so hard to find new ways to entertain ourselves at home.  Looking forward to seeing some new vids to try out.   My faves are lconcert vidsove when several generations do them.    One of my faves:. Dead Flowers, performed by Keith Richardd, Willie Nelson, Ryan Adams, and Hank Williams III.   Best version I have ever heard.

After a few years apart, DP's Mark II line-up came back together and really delivered the goods with the album, Perfect Strangers. It was their second most commercially successful album behind Machine Head in 1972. The band seemed happy to be working together once again, and the tour that followed was a huge success. Here is the video from the title track, in happier times, the way I remember them.

 

Perfect Strangers - Deep Purple

I was going back through the postings of the past and came across this one. Thought it would be nice to bring it back to life and see more of our favorite music videos.

 

My first thoughts go to Pink Floyd who have a number of creative videos out there, and in my book are the ultimate art-rock band of all time. So here is -

 

Another Brick in the Wall -  Pink Floyd

Currently my favorite music video is "Can't stop the feeling" by Justin Timberlake. It's very fun. "Swish Swish" by Katy Perry is a fun one too!   Lately I've been watching The Bee Gees and Andy Gibb. I love love love their music and they ain't too bad to look at either.

I have a million favorites and I hope you do too!

 

Starting with 

 5:21

Music video by Soundgarden performing Black Hole Sun. (C) 1994 A&M Records.

The surreal and apocalyptic music video for "Black Hole Sun" was directed by Howard Greenhalgh,[23] produced by Megan Hollister for Why Not Films (London, England), shot by Ivan Bartos, and features post-production work by 525 Post Production (Hollywood, California) and Soho 601 Effects (London). The video follows a suburban neighborhood and its vain inhabitants with comically exaggerated grins, which are eventually swallowed up when the Sun suddenly turns into a black hole, while the band performs the song somewhere in an open field. In the video, Cornell can be seen wearing a fork necklace given to him by Shannon Hoon of Blind Melon.[3] In an online chat, the band stated that the video "was entirely the director's idea", and added, "Our take on it was that at that point in making videos, we just wanted to pretend to play and not look that excited about it."[24] Thayil said that the video was one of the few Soundgarden videos the band was satisfied with.[25]

Aerosmith - Cryin'
AerosmithVEVO
  

1994 MTV Video Music Awards
Video of The Year: Cryin'
Viewer's Choice Award: Cryin'
Best Group Video: Cryin'

 

 

The music video for the song, directed by Marty Callner, features the first appearance of Alicia Silverstone in the band's videos, as well as the band performing in the Central Congregational Church in Fall River, Massachusetts. The song flashes back and forth between the band and Alicia Silverstone, who plays a teen who has a falling out with her boyfriend (played by Stephen Dorff) after catching him cheating. She feigns an attempt to kiss him, but instead leans away annoying him. She then punches him and shoves him out of the car leaving him in the dust. She begins a phase of rebellion and individuality and gets a navel piercing, which has largely been credited as introducing navel piercing to mainstream culture.[15] After having her purse stolen by another young man (played by then-unknown Josh Holloway of Lost), she chases him down and knocks him to the ground. The video then cuts to her standing on the edge of an overpass bridge, contemplating jumping. Her ex-boyfriend arrives on the scene, along with numerous police officers, encouraging her to come down from the overpass. She jumps, but a rope is revealed, arresting her fall and leaving her dangling over the freeway, laughing at Dorff's character. The video ends with the dangling Silverstone looking up at Dorff and giving him the finger.

The video was a smash success on MTV, becoming one of the most requested videos in 1993, and earning the band several awards at the Video Music Awards.
