Sometimes it is the music video that I love almost more than the song itself. Or sometimes the video is what gets me to like the song better. It does depend sometimes, as the video can make me not like the song. Case in point, I love “Bad Liar” by Selena Gomez, and the video is really creative, but parts of it irk me enough that I probably will avoid the video if I can help it.
Here is a random sampling of music videos I love as much as the song, or vise versa.
Song, violins, 50+ girls playing violins…Train. It’s all good.
Nick Jonas isn’t one of my more favorite artists, but this song is killer.
The original “You Don’t Own Me” by Leslie Gore is a classic woman’s empowerment song. The new version by Grace featuring G-Eazy is exceptionally sexy.
Fun’s ‘Carry On’ is cool because of that underground subway-esque restaurant.
Maroon 5, What can I say, I LOVE LOVE LOVE this band. This song, well, it goes without saying that I love this song, and video, and surprise wedding receptions.
Mumford & Sons is my second band, and when “I Will Wait” came out, fans just screamed. Me included. It didn’t hurt that it was filmed at Red Rocks, my ultimate place to see a concert.
I could go on. The Piano Guys have some of the best videos ever. I love sexy Enrique Iglesias songs. Oooh, Pitbul! His are fun. Oh, and before I go, I’m going to leave you with one of the best videos I ever saw. It’s probably still a favorite being that it’s a Paul Simon song. Chevy Chase makes it perfect. Yes, I am a child of the 80s. Try and tell me this isn’t a great song and video though. Just try.
So, what are some of your favorite music videos and songs? Share. I’m always on the lookout.
