Today is all about music videos. That’s all I have to say. Enjoy.
Daft Punk- ‘Lose Yourself to Dance’
The video for Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” follow-up, “Lose Yourself to Dance”, combines robots with Studio 54. Both, Nile Rodger and Pharrell Williams show up to get down with the Random Access Memories duo, in a video that is sure to keep the keep the funk alive. The whole crew is decked out in suits that could make Micheal Jackson’s glove wince, while fans reach up to touch the hottest hit-makers of the year. This video seems to be following the trend of vintage looking music videos for big pop songs. Bruno Mars recently did the same in the videos for “Treasure” and “When I Was Your Man”
Listen to Random Access Memories on Spotify.
The Knife- ‘Let’s Talk About Gender Baby, Let’s Talk About You and Me’
In what seems to be a sequel to Itunes’ Visualizer, The Knife has released a video for “Let’s Talk About Gender Baby, Let’s Talk About You and Me”, a remix of their own song “Full of Fire”, off of Shaking the Habitual. The song, reminiscent of 90’s house/rave music, flows well over the video, making the viewer feel like they’re floating around in a lava lamp. Lips, covered in various venereal diseases, pop up throughout the video to recite the song title. The song is great, and the video is just weird enough to work.
Hear more from The Knife.
Fiona Apple- ‘Pure Imagination’
What do you get when you combine Fiona Apple, Willy Wonka, and Chipotle? According to this clip, me crying in the corner for a half hour. Chipotle released this short film, entitled The Scarecrow, to warn consumers of genetically mutated foods. Set over Fiona Apple’s rendition of ‘Pure Imagination’, orginaly from the film Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, this video will make you hurt.
