This one is probably my favorite of all times.
Foo Fighers - Everlong
I was going to link a bunch but it wouldn't let me. It's better this way though.

Everlong is such a great song, which makes the video even more epic.

I have a lot of favorite videos over the years, all great songs, but also man great narrative devices and/ or aesthetic presentations visually. but if I have to start with one, what shall it be???

This'll work, since it's more of a long form video https://youtu.be/PcoIbdT6n9I

I like it. I liked the surprise the way it transitioned from budget to pro. Sounded like Queen there for a second too hehe.

Ok, I'm going to just start posting like one a day and take all the good ones.

If you're going to keep it up I'll alternate days with you. Laughing

Bjork is a goldmine no matter what video you pick.

I was a fan of Greg Kurstin back when he was in Geggy Tah, and was a late comer to the Bird and The Bee because I was a little butthurt that there would be no more Geggy Tah records, but they are great together, and Inara George's solo stuff and with Merrick is also very good.


Blah Blah Blah, for today's video... Charlatans UK Forever https://vimeo.com/90003101

Being the gentleman and allowing for another post has yielded a lull, so I will go forward, with a Bjork influenced selection visually, mixed with Portishead style vibes. Lamb - B Line https://vimeo.com/76766181

Ha, just noticed how these two songs are related after I decided to pick The PrizeFighter by The Velvet Teen, a song I was introduced to at the same time I was introduced to Marvelous Things. https://youtu.be/V8VtTlixITg

Not sure if I heard this on the radio first, or saw the video. But when I did see the video, I lit up. Grizzly Bear - Two Weeks https://youtu.be/tjecYugTbIQ

Oh yeah I love that song. They've got some weird videos. The first time I heard of them was from the video for Knife. Probably from someone on this forum back in the day.

Two Weeks is the only Grizzly Bear video I'd ever seen. There were so many Bear bands at one point (Bear vs. Shark, Minus the Bear, Polar Bears) that I just kind of tuned them all out until later. I backed tracked and now the only one of those bands I don't haven't heard and liked is Bear vs. Shark.

This video makes me think of the twisted MGMT videos that were really well done too. But rather than mine the same well, I'm going to do a 180 musically, but I guess thematically the video is equally out there. I feel like I need to post two actually. One closer to recent, and another from back in the day...
