The Year In Music Videos – September
September brought a nice mix of favorites both new and old. I relied heavily on ‘classic’ clips, but more out of a genuine love for the music as opposed to cheap sentimentality. Still, there were some new faces mixed in with old, and some new clips from artists who take waaaaay too long to put out new material.
Golden Dogs – Never Meant Any Harm: What a great introduction to a great band. The Fritz Lang office thing works exceedingly well, and the art direction just slays me.
Gil Mantera’s Party Dream – Elmo’s Wish: I love the fact that there are still people out there who realize that rock n’ roll should be, above all things, fun. A bizarrely endearing video from an equally bizarre artist.
Badly Drawn Boy – Nothing’s Going to Change Your Mind: I’m a big fan of Badly Drawn Boy, and videos like this only solidify my adoration. I want a piano driven car so badly.
Camera Obscura – Let’s Get Out of This Country
Prince – BatdanceGreat song? Not hardly? Great video? Well, no, but it’s a great reminder that Prince is capable of weirding out with the best of them.
The Kinks – Victoria: I adore this version so. Looking through September’s music posts, I just couldn’t pass this one by. A fantastic tune by an equally fantastic band.
T. Rex – Jeepster: Another song so kickass I included it in my wedding program. It’s T. Rex, people. That’s all the justification I need to include it here.
George Harrison & Paul Simon – Here Comes the Sun / Homeward Bound
