Jackson Five – Can You Feel It
I can’t believe nobody told me about this. This could very well beat out Thriller for me… I’m serious. Here is the story verbatim from Pitchfork >>
Pre-MTV video genius Bruce Gowers hired F/X don Robert Abel to work on this clip for the Jacksons’ big comeback. CGI pioneer Abel– a key contributor to 2001: A Space Odyssey and Tron– went bananas. Apparently, the Jacksons were so into the idea of themselves as gargantuan cosmic messiahs that they agreed to let the song be nearly inaudible for long stretches of the video. [Peter Macia]
Carl Sagan – ‘A Glorious Dawn’ ft Stephen Hawking (Cosmos Remixed)
Victor sent me this, and I haven’t been able to quit this song. I ended up watching the entire Cosmos series after hearing this a million times. I can’t believe that Carl Sagan’s words not only have validity today, but in some ways seem almost more acceptable now than then.
Grizzly Bear official and unofficial videos for – Two Weeks
To have one exceptional music video for your song is one thing, but to have two superb ones is just a blessing.
Ramona Falls – I Say Fever
My motion graphics guy initially apprenticed under the director of this music video. Thanks for the tip on this one Anthony!
Fleet Foxes – Mykonos
I love the simple elegance on this one, and how well thought out it is.
ELECTRIC 6 – Bodyshot
Just plain bizarre.
Chemical Brothers – Believe
I’ve seen this once or twice before, but it never fails to impress.
The Flaming Lips – Watching the Planets
Lenny Kravitz – Let Love Rule (Justice Remix)
The Postal Service – “We Will Become Silhouettes” Sub Pop Records
And of course you got to have a Postal Service song.
