I’ve done a few blog posts now on music videos that absolutely rocked my socks [is that phrase still in use?]. Anyway, I thought it might be handy to have all those video clips in one neat pile in case anyone is looking for a particular song. So I’m relocating them here.
The first one I’m adding is a new one that Bluebird featured on her blog not long ago. It’s by a Korean pop [Kpop] boy band. I think it’s called Exo -K and the song is Mama. I love the song itself but I’m seriously mesmerized by these young guys. All of them are beautiful and look like real, live manga characters. Oh and they can dance too.
The first minute or so of the clip features a CG sequence that could easily have come straight from a game. About 3/4 of the way through one of the guys does an eye-popping leap that is just amazing. Enjoy
From K-pop to Puccini! This aria is the death of Liu and features Barbara Hendricks as Liu. Glorious voice.
But wait! It gets even more eclectic! This next one is of the Piano Guys doing Pachabel’s Canon at a wedding. It starts traditional and then turns into something…else.
More Piano Guys with a very -cough- serious Star Wars theme.
And now for a couple of dips into nostalgia. First up is my all time favourite musical comedy star Fred Astaire doing the classic ‘Putting on the Ritz.
And this one is a slightly off key Frankenstein’s Monster stealing my heart as he too puts on the ritz!
Back to the modern world and I give you Archangel by Two Steps from Hell.
And now for the video clip that began my flirtation with music posts – Charlotte and Jonathon singing The Prayer.
This is the music I bought for Nanowrimo. I can hardly wait to start!
This is a single track from Elysium, the music I bought for nano. Of all the tracks, this is the one that inspires me the most.
