Weird Music Videos!

Thu May 17, 2012 3:56 pm

Hi!

Thought I'd try a post about weird music videos you've seen. This may well be a very unpopular post but thought I'd try. Here are a couple I saw recently on Youtube:

1. Hall and Oats "She's Gone". Many people on Youtube think they're on drugs in this video but it might just be a very cheap video. Great song though.

2. Maroon 5 "She will be loved". I really really like this song at the moment and have it repeating on my Mp3 player a lot. But the video is pretty strange. I think he's going out with a young girl his age but is secretly in love with her mother. Pretty subversive stuff for what is essentially a very innocent pop tune!

Would love to hear if anyone else has come across any music videos which are just weird or different!

Many thanks,

Pierre

I think two songs I absolutely love have two very odd music videos:

First, M83 - Midnight City: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dX3k_QDnzHE

and Foster the people - Helena Beat: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABzh6hTYpb8&ob=av2n

Nothing is as odd as Total Eclipse of the Heart by Bonnie Tyler:

Although, this also sprung to mind. Take On Me by A-Ha:

I love this song! Not heard it before, but thanks for posting it because a) it's a good song (catchy) and b) that blond guy & the bloke with the long hair and beats are fit

Typical low production value found in what looks like what may be a performance done for some sort of local music show. A lot of early videos were films either on film or video and the quality ran the gamut. Some artists had friends that would "borrow" video cameras and other such equipment from the schools they were going to as colleges had that sort of equipment on hand.

Now we can't have a weird music video thread without this entry from the 1970s from the then USSR:

This is one of the most confusing music videos.
It starts off bad but at 2:00 it gets really disturbing and this Olympic Gold medalist bangs a pensioner at the end.

Don't get me wrong I like the song! And weird can be good imo :p
It is just a bit bizarre from your typical music video with the drawing effects etc.
Just my personal opinion though!

Not necessarily weird, but I do believe Family Guy referred to it as the Gayest Music Video Ever. And I can't disagree:

I'm watching Jeopardy. The category is worst Madonna songs. "This one from 1987 is terrible".

Every time I watch this, I have to take a few minutes to contemplate what just happened to me.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ehHOwmQRxU

Surprised that no one's mentioned this gem, to me, it takes the cake!

LOL! I almost needed therapy after watching that video. It's so awful on so many levels.

I was 12 years old when that came out. I rushed home from school to see that too. I was really confused after watching it. Seeing two grown men shaking their booties together in a back alley.

The rat scene was unnecessary too.


Now this is a terrible video but I love it!

I absolutely adore this track, but the video gets a bit strange towards the end. Kind of hard to figure out what is going on. It probalby needs to be toned down a bit for TV.

Surprised that no-one has mentioned True Faith yet.

Weird and Wonderful

But, if you have the time, Aphex Twin is a good place to get weirded out.

(NB : opens with 4 mins or rather...fruity...language.)

Another one I'd recommend is from Sigur Ros.

Still unsure if it's distirbing and exploitative or just astonishing and beautiful.

Comments appreciated
