Unusual or Awesome Music Videos
 
I just happened upon the music video for Threshold's Staring at the Sun when showing their music off to a friend and it gave me an idea for a thread.

Know any music videos that are unusual, funny, bizarre or just plain awesome? Real standouts is what I'm hoping for. Post them here, and we can share tastes and see some videos that challenge us or maybe just make us laugh.

I'll start: like I said up top, Staring at the Sun by Threshold, a prog rock band kinda like Porcupine Tree mixed with Symphony X with some Dream Theater sprinkled on top. The way the vocalist walks into view and stares straight into the camera, only when he needs to sing his lines just looks so silly it gets me every time.

Cool thread.
I think the video that I posted yesterday qualifies for this.

Ylvis - Stonehenge
http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/s...d.php?t=110078
...or the direct YouTube link

Here's another one - our member Anthony Amodeo has been the drummer of this band.

LOL, loved the Stonehenge video, especially with the lyrics.

Whatever happened to Anthony? He gave such great advice on here.

Admittedly a parody.

Applicable to our British members that like to take the piss...

Ghost Walking by Lamb of God is pretty cool. I don't understand it, but its cool none the less.

This to me screams YES, only with a very modern twist. For that reason, I love it!!!! Brits too :)

You've gotta spend 4:06 watching the sub-titled video of Joe Cocker's Woodstock performance of With a Little Help from My Friends.

Absolutely hilarious.

Still mesmerizing is A-ha's "Take on Me" from the mid-1980s.

And The Beatles' promotional film for "Strawberry Fields" is still pretty haunting.

My favorites are probably...

Radiohead's Just: http://youtu.be/-_qMagfZtv8

And Johnny Cash's Hurt: http://youtu.be/3aF9AJm0RFc

This one falls into the unusual category. Might be a contender for worst production value of any music video ever. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3uvf0cn0jo

And this one I love because of how cool the set is. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RDN4awrpPQQ

Very much so.

I've heard hard prog like this by Opeth before.

These are probably a bit old sounding for some but ...

Pavlov's Dog had a few wicked arrangements http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ib23kaz5GWU

Early Tull too http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Kmq9uM4Mq0

I laughed so hard that my stomach hurt the first time I saw that. Probably because the song always had special significance for me. I think it's been updated from the version I saw years ago.

What's really amazing though is to listen to the original Beatle's version, and then to listen to the masterpiece Joe Cocker made of it (without the goofy sub-titles) - pure genius.

A thread that mentions Stonehenge and British...and no one has posted this yet?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTZXp0dSzTw

A video that is both unusual AND awesome. Granted, it comes from a feature length video but still...

This is one of the weirdest videos I've ever seen.

The Melvins - The Talking Horse

No explanation necessary.

One of my favorite videos AND favorite Bowie songs - "Ashes to Ashes"....

http://youtu.be/CMThz7eQ6K0

This video, or "promotional film", was released a few years before MTV. It still holds up IMHO.

The music video for Hurt's song "Rapture" is really neat, I think. In fact, I don't think I like the song quite as much as I do the video.

Duck Sauce "The Big Bad Wolf" http://vimeo.com/60088176

Joe Cocker was hilarious.

Bonnie Tyler as well.

Re: Unusual or Awesome Music Videos
 
"Duck" made me think of this for some reason.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IgPgavmY99U

This would fall more in to the "unusual" category rather than "awesome"...

Re: Unusual or Awesome Music Videos
 
Bob Dylan and Pharrell have both released interesting videos recently.

Here's Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone":

http://video.bobdylan.com/desktop.html

Here's Pharrell's "Happy":

http://24hoursofhappy.com/

Both are gimmicky but interesting uses of the form. I assumed the Dylan vid has been mentioned elsewhere on the forum, so apologies in that case, but a quick search didn't turn up anything.

Oh so bloody clever, but musical too. These guys continue to impress me, even though I generally don't like over complication. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OY0OA...subs_digest-ot

... "awesome" is an understatement in this case :)

Indeed! Hiromi's "torture" of Simon still makes me smile - & Simon ;)

It's amazing what someone can say or do under torture, isn't it? :)
