MP3: The Flaming Lips – “Mr. Ambulance Driver”

Something I realized lately is that music videos, with the “perversion” “corruption” of MTV, the value of a music video is totally overlooked. So every once in a while I’m going to post some videos with the intent that you, the reader, look not only at the pretty moving pictures but analyze it as an entity itself. There are some amazing creators and artists that are missing the credit they deserve. It is a humble community that begs to receive credit long overdue. I’m not going to give my input out just yet, but I’d love to know how these move you. The underground of the music video business is exploding with creativity and character. Click below to read this installment of Rediscovering the Video.

    Oooh yea, I remember that F Lips video! I watched it on their “Void” DVD. But my boyfriend took it. XP Wow, I really like that Vampire Weekend video. For some reason it reminds me of the “1234” video by Feist. . .even though they don’t look anything a like. Haha. Thanks for posting these great videos!
