Oh boy! The literal version of A-Ha’s Take On Me video is way better than the original

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Music on Wednesday 24 September 2014

The whole literal video movement was doing the rounds a while back, and this clever hack on Take On Me has been well viewed already, but we’ve just found it and, damn, if it isn’t the best thing we’ve seen in a while! The original video from 1986 was an MTV staple, perhaps the most popular and memorable video of that era.

New single from Betty White: Middleman

Sasha Gransjean Reader Find

By Sasha Gransjean in New Music on Wednesday 7 March 2012

Music videos have the capacity to make a statement if done correctly according to lyrics and the music they are accompanying. This one does just that. A song about the ‘middleman’ set to footage of Occupy Wall Street with the gritty underlying screaming, grunting, vocals of Betty White’s lead singer, Robert James. Apart from making […]

El Guincho: Bombay

Aaron Craig Reader Find

By Aaron Craig in New Music on Thursday 23 February 2012

This is easily the best music video I have come across. Comprised of over-sexualised women, implied violence, and strange clips that seem to be taken from early 80s Latino TV shows, it is a visual orgy. Not to mention the killer tune that it accompanies. In the words of El Guincho: ‘The ship will take […]

By Patrick Winfield in Video on Friday 25 November 2011

Tigersushi and Excuse My French released a video for DYE’s new single, Fantasy. The song is pretty cool, but the video is soaked in awesomeness. Directed by animation wunderkind, Jérémie Périn, the video tells a tale of a group of teenagers out for a night of mischief and fun when things get weird. Fast. It’s […]

By Sarah Jaffe in New Music on Tuesday 22 November 2011

I was just introduced to this artist and video through a friend a few days ago. Since watching the video for the first time, I haven’t really been able to stop. The video is perfect. The song says it perfectly for everyone that’s ever been broken up with.

M83: Wait

By Troy Mattison Hicks in New Music on Saturday 29 October 2011

Every once and a while, a video will come along that totally does justice to the song. And then there are those who elevate the song to a whole new level. This does both. M83’s Wait might be one of the best videos I’ve seen in a long time.

Kate Bush: Running Up That Hill video from 1985

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in New Music on Tuesday 27 September 2011

Kate Bush seems to be enjoying a bit of a resurgence in popularity lately, and while this video is probably one of her least bizarre, it’s also one of her best. This song hooks me every time.

Awesome video for Rusko’s Everyday

Roxana Parje Reader Find

By Roxana Parje in New Music on Thursday 11 August 2011

I love the new video for Rusko’s song, Everyday. What’s pretty neat about it is the way in which the happiness of the sound mixes with the sadness conveyed by the video: a deserted world in which even the fish have died on the beach, but the people still live their lives and the sun […]

Peaches’ Billionaire: the hottest music video of 2010?

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Video on Wednesday 11 August 2010

Strap yourself in (literally) and take a ride on this day-glo, cartoon-themed video for the irrepressible Peaches created from the depths of director Cody Critcheloe’s imagination. But be sure to cover your ears in the pre-chorus hook. You might just hear a rather naughty word.
