Week 68 Video Playlist Summary

So this week there are some great videos in my music list. Ones which are really worth checking out are:

  1. I send a message, INXS
  2. Come as you are, Nirvana
  3. And she was, Talking Heads
  4. Call me when you’re sober, Evanescence

All the videos are great for different reasons. The INXS video has a cute little black toy robot juxtaposed into a Japanese Geisha girl’s hangout, the Nirvana song has the iconic baby in the water with the dollar bill which of course was the album cover to Never Mind. The Talking Heads video is classic Talking Heads with surreal cartoon paper cut out images in the same genre as the Monty Python animated sequences and, as usual, the Evanescence “Call me when you’re sober” song is just completely intense both musically and visually.

Yet when you have finished looking at this list, you might as well also check out the Cold Chisel video “Forever now” and Australian Crawl’s “Reckless” as these two videos are also very visually appealing: the former with the drummer keeping time on café cutlery while the latter has car indicators in time with the strong beat of the song. I guess if I had to choose one video that was the best out of this strong set, I would probably go with “I Send a message” (mainly because of the robot) although “Call me when you’re sober” is also at the top of this list.
