Week 53 Playlist Video

So this week there are some good videos which are well worth taking the time to watch. The top three in my view are:

  1. Penny Lane, The Beatles
  2. Californication, Red Hot Chili Peppers
  3. Lithium, Evanescence

Penny Lane is a great video as you see the Beatles riding horses. If you watch closely, the ride doesn’t go as smoothly as perhaps the band hoped. In particular, Ringo seems to get caught between two of the horses when he tries to dismount to head to the outside dining table which is quite amusing. The video itself is also interesting visually and rather arty considering how long ago it was made.

Californication is a great little video with the song being performed by the band while the video cuts between the band members and their avatars inside a video game. The video game snowboarding sequence is interesting and fun to watch.

Yet once again Evanescence takes the best video of the week with Lithium. Not sure why but all of Evanescence’s videos are a real gothic work of art with intense imagery that so nicely complements the intense music they consistently produce.
