I was watching this music video and am curious about the original source of the footage. Some kind of promotional film? Any ideas where it's from or what search terms to use would be most appreciated!
I am looking for a music video that created a kind of 3D Zoetrope ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5khDGKGv088#t=77 ) effect with a timefreeze camera array ( https://vimeo.com/65979997 ) [more inside]
Psy just blows it out of the park with the really young female crowd apparently, or is it a selection bias of sorts? You know what I'm sayin'! [more inside]
I'm looking for a music video from the era just before or at the dawn of youtube. It was an expensive, professional-looking vanity project that featured a man with long blonde hair singing a song in the sentimental style of Michael Bolton while being featured in a number of romantic, CGI landscapes.

In the music video for Camera Obscura's song "Lloyd, I'm Ready to Be Heartbroken", a film clip is shown from about 2:01 to 2:25. What film is it from? [more inside]

I'm trying to remember the name of a rock song that was released perhaps as long as eight years ago. In the video are several high school males who lose their tempers; I don't think that the song is by Andrew WK, but as I recall it'd be classified in the same genre. Please help.
I'm trying to compile a list of music videos from the 80s (early 90s is fine too) that reference communism, with, for example, use of hammer and sickle imagery, or the like. The more the direct the reference the better. Bonus points for synth-pop. [more inside]
I'm trying to find a trippy music video featuring a train. The whole video follows the train for the most part. As the music gets more elaborate, the train gets a bunch of effects including changing its color and brightness. Another music video by the same band involved a fake PSA or television broadcast that devolves into a song. Does any of this ring a bell? I think the band was electronic, but don't quote me on that.
I need more cheesy, overblown, post-apocalyptic music videos from the '80s! [more inside]
I want to make a music video for my band, and invite people to send us their own home video of a certain kind of public event for us to include. Are there any legal issues here? Please explain them to me like I'm a clueless idiot because, when it comes to film licencing, I am. [more inside]
Who is the woman dancing in the film clip of Berlin Chair, by You Am I? There's plenty of info about PJ the boxer (in the spangly suit), but I can't find anything about the woman. I recall this was the case even when the song came out (almost 20 years ago, gah). Who is she? What has she been up to since 1994? [more inside]
I recently watched a music video with someone, and am trying to locate it. It features a highly photogenic man and a woman in their 20s/30s wandering around sunlit fields, looking at various objects. At one point something happens involving the woman in front of car headlights, and perhaps a horse head(?). I think it was probably filmed relatively recently, less than 5 years ago, and the music is probably from a smaller independent band. The band name was probably two words, and the song title was one word, if that helps.
I would like to watch some music videos where it appears that everyone is just having a stupid good time. [more inside]
I can remember the man had a mustache and long brown hair, maybe sunglasses. Very robotic voice. Playing the keyboard and singing about going into space. Trying to be quite serious but obviously a very silly act. At some point he counts down dramatically and then the woman starts singing. Terrible green screening with some hilariously bad video delaying. VHS quality. I've been trying to find this for ages! Sound familiar?
While settling a disagreement over whether Total Eclipse of the Heart was a duet, I just saw the music video and it blew my mind. I grew up without cable, and am pretty much ignorant of everything but the "classic" music videos from the 80's; please let me know what I'm missing. [more inside]
There was a video I loved on YouTube that featured Prince's I would die 4 u song, but was made up of clips from Final Fantasy. I loved it, was telling a coworker about it, and now I can't find it. Looking for leads... HOPE ME!
Hi! First post and I'm not sure if this is the right place for it but this is driving me crazy. I'm trying to find a music video from a few years ago. I can't remember the name of the artist or the song. There's a guy in it and he runs around New York tagging his name all over the place and there's a chase scene set in a revolving door. He steals stuff from everyone. A glove, a flower. I think he gives the flower to a homeless guy. He has curly hair and he's wearing a scarf over his mouth at the beginning. He meditates in Central Park and levitates for a little while and then he goes back to running around.
I'm looking for a bizarre animated music video, possibly originating from Korea or Japan, which I've spent an hour googling fruitlessly. [more inside]
What is this scene from a music video? It's driving us crazy ... it was a little skit that (we think) happened at the beginning of a video. It was set in a grocery store, was funny, and the only line we can remember is "you're the (something)est green grocer I ever did see" ... which we think was punctuated by a loud, "Honey!" Thought it was David Lee Roth, but might be misremembering the opening of the "Yankee Rose" video, which is not it.
Ever since I saw the video for Cabaret Voltaire's Sensoria a gazillion and nine years ago, I've wondered how they accomplished that freaky, vertiginous camera move. You see it at the beginning of the video, with lots of quick little inserted shots to break it up, but then it turns up again a few times later without any cuts. It seems like the camera is on an overhead track, but you never see a track as the camera is swooping around. Was it on some sort of a crane? The shot's wide enough that it would seem like you would see the crane off on one side or the other. (If you've never heard the song, plan to spend a good part of your work day tomorrow muttering, "Do right... Always work... Go to church.")

I really want to share this video I saw a while ago with a friend, for injoke purposes. But I dunno how to find it! Help! I believe it to be either Korean or Japanese pop music. I have little to no memory of the actual song, just the video. 3, maybe 4 East-Asian ladies. Strolling along a sidewalk, holding shopping bags, walking past upscale store windows. The sidewalk moves underneath them, kind of like an omnidirectional conveyor belt. I can remember no other details, really. Other than it was filmed in a studio (obviously), yet gives the impression of being filmed outside via lighting, and there were a lot of pastel shades going on. Oh, and the women are wearing heels.

Couple years ago I saw a music video. It was taken in a single shot, one guy dancing/singing with a microphone stand on a stage/sound set, ended with light bulbs exploding in slow mo, still part of the single shot. It kind of reminded me of Talking Heads/Stop Making Sense, both musically and visually. This was probably around 2008. Any ideas what I saw?
I'm almost positive that when Wolf Like Me, by TV on The Radio, was first released as a single it had a video that featured a Little Red Riding Hood motif where the parts of red and the wolf were inverted, and is entirely different from the current video. I can't find this, although I'm pretty sure I didn't imagine it. Did it exist? Was it a fan edit? Did it infringe on some copyright and get expunged from the Internet? Help!
I love this new Mika music video, Elle Me Dit. Really almost an obsession for some reason. Anyway, I feel like I recognize several of the actors/actresses in the video from other things but can't figure out what or find a list of their names. Can anyone tell me who these people are? Particularly the mom, the grandmother, the dad, and the blonde daughter. Thanks! [more inside]

Recently I saw a music video, and can't for the life of me find it again. It was by a current indie band. A man was driving in a car at night, with projections of someone else's face on his face. There might have been explosions too. Any ideas?
Tell me about/provide links to your favorite low-budget music videos.

Does anyone know the name of this music video that was very popular in Turkey the last few months: the artist is a woman singing in Hindi (I think); the song is about 'different colors' (we are all different) and has diverse characters - with a lot of diverse styles. It is a real catchy song and a the video is full of beautiful colors.

Music video filter: Relatively recent video with a youngish, light-skinned black woman who seems to have a 70s-esque flair (hair, clothes, etc, at least to this uninformed viewer), trying to organizing some dancing and partying in what seems to be a mental institution. Video and song have a fun and funky vibe but I know nothing about the artist other than that she's got an amazing voice. Driving me crazy that I can't find it, help plz?
