Combining a confident pop-dance entry, with a touching, exciting and diverse visual, this music video is DA BOMB! It wonderfully illustrates the highs, lows and in-betweens of a young couple’s relationship over several years. Hi Paul and Dana. (Dana has a wicked cool shirt on in the beginning too!) Everyone can relate in some capacity, and if not for the emotive factor, watch for some of the scenes including a blackened, burning cake, a massive pile of burgers and half dressed people groping around the walls with a blindfold on. Sweet. 5star.

Number 2 is The Supermen Lovers (feat. Mani Hoffman) – Starlight (Official Video).

A wonderfully creepy, little man loving his music, with a huge set of teeth, that craves so much more from life, whilst watching a dancing, sombrero-sporting skeleton on his animated TV screen. Aw. Don’t worry he makes it! He even has a little boogie…oddly, squashed face though…

Oren Lavie- Her Morning Elegance.

This Youtube video is super awesome, composed from a stop-motion construction. Here are lots of little shots, stitched together to make an interestingly dynamic 4-minute video of slumber-ville. Moral of the story- you can have oodles of fun when you’re dreaming! Watch her sleepwalk over cloud-shaped pillows, instantly change into a maroon scarf and synchronise stride with an animated black suit. What-is-more, the song is rather lovely too!

Everyone’s favourite British band, Coldplay with their Strawberry Swing music video.

Combining illustration with real video creates a lovely little, fantastical narrative. It’s just all a bit of fun really, again with the stop-motion theme and wild ideas, featuring a Superman costume, a giant squirrel and axonometric drawings of cities. This one packs it all in a few minutes.

BOMBAY YOU BEAUTIES! How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep

…features a wide-eyed, dewy-looking man on his quest to the moon- again surrounding a cute tale and wonders of slumber- but this time with a more playdoh model-like character. If you don’t like the song, shame on you, but on the whole, it’s very enchanting. Bombay Bicycle Club are an innovate, enjoyable indie band, with songs possessing potent melodies and quirky lyrics.

At six-OK GO with Here It Goes Again.

A big hit in the first decade of the 2000s, this video was unusual, entertaining and remarkably well-timed. You can’t deny the amount of work that went into perfecting this 3-minute long choreography on running machines. If you’re fairly bored and wouldn’t mind viewing a bunch of colourfully-dressed young men-one with a fabulously bald head and thick, pungent beard- THIS ONE’S FOR YOU!

Pop back in with us for a sequel post soon, the internet is always subscribing us with visual gems so we’re confident this WILL be re-happening. DEN are suckers for weirdness, especially in Youtube video form. We hope you agree. K THANKZ BAI X
