Some song videos to waste time in a nice way (or because I don’t watch MTVanymore and need to see some music videos on-line):
Adult: In My Nerves. Adult is an electronic group from Detroit that sounds so much 80’s, looks like a mix of Devo/Clash/Siouxsie, and that is it why sounds so cool. (via cliptip)
Air: Cherry Blossom Girl (X-Rated Version).X-Rated? Well, has some scenes NSFW but it’s okay for me. Anyway, best part of this video is the song. I’m not a huge fan of Air, but I love that song and that is why I’m posting this.
Alizée: J’en ai marre. Since her official site is sleeping, this is the best that I found. What does she sing? French pop music, good to dance, with Mylène Farmer lyrics. She is a kind of Lolita that has a provocative way to look and a sexy way to dance, but not on that video version. Try this TV presentation to see what I’m saying.
Björk: Cocoon. I always admired her songs and this one is very touching. About this video, well… it’s as strange as all her other videos, but they are very artistic and that one was made by the visual Japanese artist Eiko Ishioka. (via cliptip)
Depeche Mode: Precious (sorry for the ads before the video). Depeche is one of my favourite bands and their last album is great, and darker, that’s why I loved it so much. It reminds me a lot of Songs of Faith and Devotion. I had a pleasure to watch one show of that the tour of that album. That was awesome and I hope that they come back to more show. Want more? Check out this archives with many of their videos.
Emilie Simon: Désert. A dark video, or should I say, bizarre video of a French singer and composer with a soft-beautiful-lovely voice. Her first album (Emilie Simon) has a collection of beautiful songs, almost all like Désert. Her second album is a soundtrack of a film that I can’t wait to see, La marche de l’empereur.
Franz Ferdinand: Do You Want To. It’s a video of the last single of this British pop/rock band, with many references to artists, from Duchamp to Warhol. (via Superette). More Franz Ferdinand videos: Take Me Out (my favourite) This Fire and the Walk Away, full of references to Hitchcock and British films from the 40’s. Or try this link. (via Superette)
Günther: Tutti Frutti Summerlove. Another fantastic video from Günther… you won’t be able to resist when he says “tutti frutti summerlove” in that sexy way that only he does. But can someone answer me, what kind of tutti frutti is that with jumping bananas and watermelons? Or is that another video with double entendre? Anyway, if you missed it, he has a video with Samantha Fox called Touch me. Yes, one more interesting video, with the same quality and theme. You can try and watch the videos through Günthernet, but the links don’t work on my computer.
Kate Bush: King of the Mountain. She is back after 12 years of silence with a masterpiece double album. Listen to her new album “Aerial” on NME. (via Little Plastic Castle)
Keane: Somewhere only we know or try this link with “save link as” and open with windows media or this other video version of the song. The song “Somewhere only we know” of the British pop band Keane has two versions, the first is the original (my favourite) and the second is the US version. This one of the few bands that I can say that I liked of all of their songs in an album. I found also a Videography list.
Marianne Faithfull: as Tears Go By. Did you know that Marianne Faithfull was a shy young singer in 1965? I didn’t before watching that video. BTW, the Blowupdoll post isn’t new, but the link is still working.
Michel Polnareff: La Poupée Qui Fait Non. That post of Spiked Candy has a vintage video of Michel Polnareff and the American version of that song, singed by The Birds.
Mylène Farmer: Fuck Them All. I searched for a long time for her videos and that is the best complete video that I found. That song is from her last album, but I’m still searching for her old videos.
New Order: Waiting For The Sirens. New Order is always good and need no introduction, do they? (via cliptip)
OK Go is a band from Chicago with very nice songs, but that’s not why I’m posting this. It seems that those guys have a lot of sense of humour and free time to do things like this video of their song “A Million Ways”. I ask myself how much time they spent practiciing that complex choreography. You must see that video, and if you don’t have Quick Time just choose another format and size on their site. More videos from OK Go here. (Thanks André!)
Röyksopp: what else is there. My newest cool discovery is this Norwegian group called Röyksopp. This is my favourite song of their last album, maybe because the melancholic and eccentric vocal performance is wonderful. (via cliptip)
