Since we have a Short-Film Club, maybe we can also have a thread discussing music videos?

Share exceptional music videos (or any other video connecting visual art with music) that left a notable impression on you!

Please make sure you don't share a video just because you enjoyed the music, use this thread then instead >>594

This one is pretty well known. The music itself is utter crap, but the video is Lovecraftian goodness.

>Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner - Lauren O'Connell

Although I don't have any strong political views and certainly don't support colonialism, the superb editing and haunting scenes of this video made a very strong impression on me. It's Lauren O'Connell's cover of the ballad 'Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner' by Warren Zevon set to footage of western mercenaries fighting for the Congolese government against the rebels during the Simba Mutiny (this part is ironic, because of course the song is about a Norwegian mercenary fighting against the western backed Congolese government). The mercenaries are equal parts charming and sinister: you can see them posing with the skulls of what are presumably dispatched enemies and wiring one to the hood of their vehicle as an ornament. One mercenary plays with his dentures for the camera, and another playacts being executed by one of his local comrades as a joke. Clearly these are hard men, and while they may very well be criminals, it's hard to deny they have a certain charisma.

The lyrics of the song itself are also memorable. "Land of the midnight sun" is a really colorful way of referring to Norway imo.

Anyway sorry for posting this in both the music thread and the music video thread but I thought this video was really well put together and wanted to share it with Ernst.

it's meta as fuck.

first, obvious cover/homage of trollololol
afterwards you see a few metaphors.

phone - communication, long distance share of information
guitar - music, enjoyment. (double Humpink!)

"Der Humpink" is a creation, not a metaphor.

No, I know very little about it.

Not really, Marty Robbins had his 'Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs' album which you might like. Quite a different style to Zevon but quite nice, particularly Big Iron and Mister Shorty.
You also might like Corb Lund's album 'Horse Soldier, Horse Soldier', particularly the song 'Student Visas'.
Some Neo-Nazi type bands such as Übermensch and Sleipnir might fit, the song 'In Anerkennung' by the former is one of my favourite German songs. Sabaton may also be an option.

I didn't know this and really enjoyed it, thank you for sharing this.

The music of The Chemical Brothers never worked for me and while interesting the other videos I've seen from them weren't impressive. This one, though, is impressive. Towards the end you can see some artifacts of either occlusion culling or z-buffer ordering, depending on how they created the video. The water towers are flickering infront and behind the power cables if you look closely, but that's okay.

Nice, I wish I could have seen that on the big screen at the ZKM. Invoked some nice associations and thoughts.
At times I was reminded of the scenes in Koyaanisqatsi where the electron microscope images of microchips are interleaved with images of US cities at night; and in the scenes in Baraka where the handling of chicks in meat plants is compared to packaging meat and constructing electronics at assemnly lines which is then compared to how humans behave in vehicular traffic and then in foot traffic at tram stations.
Certainly a video I will archive, thank you very much.

The only video from Rammstein I found somewhat impressive was Mann Gegen Mann. It was a good combination of boldness, execution and making a statement. (I assume it is related to how they were treated on their first tour in the US when they were detained for public nudity during a concert).
Oh, and the video to the piano version of Mein Herz Brennt is quite something: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dv6Th7kJ64Q

The videos from LINDEMANN however are on a whole nother level:
Praise Abort: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWE_M0CX9So

>Hadn't expected anyone to still remember them, let alone someone from outside Germany.
Huh? I'm pretty sure that anyone at least a little bit familiar with the industrial scene knows about them. It's just that the industrial scene itself isn't exactly mainstream and popular. And also, their name is quite difficult to pronounce for someone who doesn't speak German. That may have caused people forgetting about them.

This song is, dare I say, redpilled.
Back when it came out the internet largely consisted of smug reddit type intellectuals who "fucking love science", if you know what I mean, and they made fun of this song relentlessly, for it dared to question the culture of scientism. It's actually quite philosophical.

ESPECIALLY the part about fucking magnets. The smug pseuds in the comments latched on to that line, but I fucking guarantee you, nobody fucking knows how magnets work. And any physicist worth his salt will confirm that magnets are pretty much fucking magic.

I am not being ironic, by the way.

>dancing bear & gûdulka player - 1991
Not exactly a music video but the whole clip is extremely captivating. You see all those people having a great day in post-soviet bulgaria and the old gypsy walkig around with his chained dancing bear, playing a gadulka. The gadulka sounds give the whole happening a very eerie and weird atmosphere, almost to underscore the tragic suffering of the bear. Then later you suddenly have a group of people happily dancing on the street together while busses and cars are trying to pass. I wish I would have been there at this day.

Can Ernsts help me to remember a music video by description? I saw it in early 00's, if I'm not mistaken, it was a hip-hop or a trip-hop song, I think. There was a white dude walking in some slums in the evening/night reading the first verse. Then he tore the skin on his face to reveal a black dude underneath. The black dude read the second verse (or chorus?), then he tore the skin on his face too, revealing the white dude again, who proceeded to read the next verse and so on.

I don't even know why am I looking for that video. I didn't even like the song much. Still, would be nice to remember it. Pic unrealted.

You know it from the Sopranos. They play the Chosen Mix in the intro. The original has a nice spoken word intro. There are some very weird (I wouldn't say good) techno mixes on Exhiole from Cold Harbour Lane.

>ESPECIALLY the part about fucking magnets.

I decided to look this up on Reddit briefly and picked the imo best answer.

"Physics cannot answer "why" questions on a fundamental level. We live in a universe that works according to some (not necessarily known) laws of physics. We could also live in a universe where the laws of physics are different.

Magnetism can be tracked down to quantum electrodynamics (QED), the most fundamental description of electromagnetism we have. On that level, it is well understood - the calculations based on QED are in incredibly precise agreement with all measurements done so far, with a precision of up to 13 decimal digits."

The first part is standard (maybe little bit pretentious) wisdom. I don't believe the author has a PhD or is close to it, but the whole answer is rather decent.
But wait, there is more
