For this week’s music videos, we time-traveled (hello, David Hasselhoff and Natalie Imbruglia!), crinkled our noses at colorful whimsy (looking at you, Fur Voice and Cold Mailman), and tilted our heads in wonder (what’s up, Arca?). We tried to pick out a theme, spot a trend, but it turns out that much like the recent signing of Tim Tebow to the Philadelphia Eagles, these videos are just something that happened. So why not celebrate? Let the weird week in audio visuals commence!
“True Survivor”—David Hasselhoff (Above)
No words. None at all. Except thanks, David Hasselhoff!!
It’s tough to figure out how and where and why this video embodies the term “sad bitch” … but we’re feeling it.
Well that was a colorful journey!
“Don’t Dream It’s Over”—Kawehi
Hey, man. Sometimes you’ve just gotta respect an artist and their vibe. Get lost in some Crowded House with Kawehi.
“Guest List”—Alvaro & Jetfire
Cause when you’re up in the club—or wishing you were—who better to be than a sexy woman?
“Something You Do”—Cold Mailman
This is one of those irrepressible, endearing slice of life videos that you just can’t quit, and we sure do love those. Especially when they have just the right amount of nudity and light choreography.
So, John Carpenter made a music video for a horror-soundtrack-inspired song that isn’t actually from a horror soundtrack and he used a VR headset to control a robot avatar? Cool!
“Claire Huxtable”—Louis York
Can we get a “hell yeah!” for subverting gender stereotypes?! OK, so Louis York may have used a bundle of video vixens to sing about how he’s tired all these video vixens, but the message is still right. And it’s pretty funny, too.
“Instant Crush”—Natalie Imbruglia
Our nostalgia is too strong not to include Natalie Imbruglia’s newest video in this round up! And high five to Ms. Natalie for staying fine, sounding sweet, covering Daft Punk, and pining for a man statue in this comeback track video. We love the 1990s, and we love you.
