I’ll be updating this page periodically to include music that’s piquing my interest at the moment. What’s that you say? Some of this music is old? Well, so am I. 😛
Jay Park‘s “Joah” is one of my all-time favorite songs. Can’t get the melody out of my mind…
I really like this video by K.Will. The first time I saw it, I thought it was going to have a “Sixth Sense” kind of ending. The plot twist surprised me! You don’t have to understand Korean to follow the plot line. If you’ve got about 4 minutes to spare, watch this and let me know if you guessed the ending. But don’t spoil it for the others. 😉 (This video also helped launch Seo In Guk‘s acting career.)
Before Sean O’Pry (the male model in Taylor Swift‘s “Blank Space” video), there was Spanish actor Daniel González, who plays Gwen Stefani‘s (boyfriend and) ex-boyfriend in “Cool.“ This lush music video tells the story of Stefani’s real-life relationship with her No Doubt bandmate Tony Kanal. The two dated, broke up, went on to marry other people and remained the best of friends. Interesting tidbit: González’s girlfriend in the video is played by Erin Lokitz, who at the time was dating Kanal. (The two have since married.)
Natalie Imbruglia‘s “Torn.”
I like Kyuhyun‘s music video moreso than the song itself. Still, “A Million Pieces” is very pretty and I got more than a little invested in the couple’s adorable romance, which has a heartbreaking ending … 🙁 K-Drama fans will recognize the love interest as Go Ara from “Answer Me 1994.”
Taylor Swift‘s “Blank Space” is epic. That is all.
One of my favorite Super Junior songs: “Sorry, Sorry” (performed during their mullet phase) 😛
Taylor’s Swift‘s “Shake It Off.” I can’t stop, won’t stop moving…
I saw a pint-sized band of 9- and 11-year-olds called LiveWire perform “Everybody Talks” recently and they did a great job. Here’s the original by the Neon Trees. I’m not a fan of this video, so I tend to not watch it so much as just listen to the music. Yeah. I’m old:
I remember hearing Marty Casey (of the Lovehammers) do a nice take of “Mr. Brightside.” The original by the Killers is pretty fantastic:
I still like everything about PSY‘s “Gangnam Style“:
I’ve always liked the song “Runaway Train” by Soul Asylum. Dave Pirner never sounded better. This video, which deals with child abuse, is difficult for me to watch at times. Photos of real-life missing children were interspersed throughout the video. Some were found alive. Others had been murdered.
Take That‘s “I Want You Back.” Yeah, I like it.
