I was reading the PYF animated music video thread and realized that there's not a more general thread for just music videos in general. Music videos are dope!

Everyone's seen it by now, but it's still probably one of my absolute favorites:

This past year I started using youtube-dl and plex to organize a self-hosted MTV channel that I can run as background during WFH life and it's been great and I'm always looking for new videos to add to the channel. What are some of your favorite music videos?

Feel the glove!

that imperatrice track reminded me of this jernt, which is so got drat repetitive it shouldn't work but paired with the video it's like summer distilled:

batida alegria - their album was all I listened to in 2012, along with camp lo downtown saturday night for some reason

bruiser wolf has a ridiculous rapping style and punchlines:
"I get nothing...
but head, Beavis"
"you could could get life in a jail cell
for steppin on white - that's walkin on egg shells"
"we hustle, hope we don't see the joint
life's a roller coaster hope you ceeda point"
here he is in a bar for like 32 bars

i'm a big fan of music videos directed by Eric Wareheim... he's got some impressive range. they are super loving weird in that Tim and Eric sort of way but some are less worksafe than others.

frankly, might as well treat'em all as degrees of not safe for work.

the bird and the bee - Polite Dance Song

Phantom Planet - Dropped

Tommy Sparks - She's Got Me Dancing

Both Major Lazer's "Keep It Going Louder" ( and "Pon De Floor" (

HEALTH - We Are Water (particularly :nws: for violence and blood)

Tobacco - Streaker :nws: (nudity)


Charli XCX - Famous

there are others, but these are my favourites

I'm not a fascist. I'm a priest. Fascists dress up in black and tell people what to do.

I like this one, not in english though.

Clever Betty

this is a song and music video styled in 80's that a pair of brothers made for their third brother's wedding, unbeknownst to him. I think it's a pretty cool song and a pretty hilarious and spot-on video. the world would be a better place if everyone had siblings who cared as much as these do.
We Are Brothers

Frontier Psychiatrist is a wonderfully surreal 4 minutes and 19 seconds
The Avalanches - Frontier Psychiatrist

edit: I like MelodySheep's stuff, and one of my favorites is Children of Planet Earth, a song made up of the sounds and voices on the Voyager Golden Record. The video is mostly just the Voyager spacecraft drifting along through space set to the song, but I think it's wonderful still.

I don't know why I care but I really wanna know at what point they decided to just use the previz as the final video, pond5/shutterstock watermarks, shot numbers and focal lengths and all. like, it'd be a mad video without all that poo poo so it makes me think it started out as a legit previz/pitch. or maybe given the "artist" it was just pomo "head so far up rear end you make a fake previz video where you go up daniel craig's rear end in POV" from the beginning!
