You know how MTV used to run music video marathons over the course of a weekend just because they had nothing else to air? You remember, back before they had re-runs of shrill teen based reality-TV like the Hills and Sweet Sixteen. Well, I’m bringing back the idea of a music video marathon (that is, if you can call 4 video posts in a row a music marathon). After all, by my estimation that means I’ll have hosted 4 more full-length music videos than MTV will all month.
First up we have the very normal, not-at-all-weird, video for Yeasayer’s awesome Musical Pairings approved single “O.N.E.” Well, its normal if you think that shape-shifting lowlifes hanging out with hipsters in neon-colored clothes at a night-club/casino modeled after a 1980’s conception of “futuristic” and listening to a band playing bright-neon colored pseudo-instruments is normal. If that isn’t your idea of normal, it may actually be one of the strangest video you’ll see all year.
My favorite part is definitely the light-up keyboard that looks like it could have been an advanced prototype for a new version of Simon Says. I’d love to hear about your favorite part.
Don’t forget to “heart” our songs on hypem if you like what you hear! And check back later today and tomorrow to watch more great new music videos!
