List of weird or interesting music videos

I put together a list of music videos for my niece and I watch. My criteria was simple: weird and/or interesting music videos. You see? Not much to it. I wanted to find videos that were either completely strange, had unique editing elements, or totally engaging. So here is a short list of the videos we watched.

Bishop Briggs – “Wild Horses”… This video pretty much has everything we were looking for and a sweet bonus, the song is very memorable for it’s catchy chorus. Take a look at the wild content, timely editing, and engaging singer.

Next up is Caroline Jones “The Difference”¬†and this video is by no means strange, but the song tells a story that’s entertaining to follow. Editing is well-done and, well, the cars are so nice. Take a look and the bonus in this one is that it is “to be continued…” so there’s a follow up music video.

My niece and I really like the music videos from Jain, so third on the list is “Dynabeat” …which falls right in line with the creativity she shows off in previous music videos like “Makeba” and “Come.” She’s so talented with her music, and although we didn’t love this video, we liked it a lot and it’s still the best-edited video and most creative on our list.

This next one is, hmm, how to describe it? It’s the one we talked about the most afterwards and you’ll see why. Like us, you may only be able to watch it once because of sensory overload and when I say sensory overload, I mean sensory overload on steroids. There’s so much going on in this video that you almost have to watch it more than once just to catch everything that’s happening, but it might make give you motion sickness, be warned. It’s “PONPONPON” by Kyary Pamyu Pamyu.

Last video on the list is one I was excited to show my niece. Actually it’s not a music video, but a live performance of “Purple Rain” by Prince. I fell in love with the video the first time I watched it, and that’s after writing it off as what I thought would be a cheesy performance from the 80s. Prince performed at the 1985 American Music Awards and while the set was kind of bland and forgettable by today’s standards, it’s Prince. When has he ever needed an actual stage to keep people’s attention? I go into more detail about why I like this performance here so for now, here’s a video that has simple editing, but incredible emotion and a great build-up to the climatic ending…

Thanks for stopping by! If you have any suggestions for this list, chime in by commenting below.

Jain in Nashville, Tennessee

This will most likely go down as my biggest regret of 2017… Jain played in Nashville last night and I wasn’t there! Very disappointed. I’ll admit I don’t know much about her as an artist/person yet but I really like her music, her stage presence, her¬†charisma.


Instead of staring for an uncomfortable amount of time at Jain on stage, I was in my car delivering packages to my lovely neighbors in Nashville. That’s right, I drive for Amazon Prime Now. So as luck would have it, Lightning 100 broadcasted Jain’s concert live on-air. Major silver lining there. I listened to what I could of her set and it was awesome! I already knew I liked her song “Come,” but now I’ve found a list of others that I like. You need to delight yourself by taking 15 minutes to listen to and watch the following, in this order:

1. “Come”


2. “Makeba” (the editor in me thinks this video is incredible with the effects, timing, and choices of how they put it together. “Come” is a lot like this one, too.)

3. “Hope” (tops the list of my favorite songs at the moment, and in this video you’ll get to see her free and charismatic style.)

Regretful in Nashville,
