Music Video of the Day: Taxi Driver by Lucy Blue (2021, dir by ????)

At first, I thought this might be a tribute to the Scorsese film but apparently, it’s not. Instead, it’s juts a song about someone who either is a taxi drive or who is fantasizing about being a taxi driver. Myself, I like the look of this video. It’s very atmospheric and dream-like.


Music Video of the Day: Only Love Can Save Me Now by The Pretty Reckless (2021, dir by Jon J and Taylor Momsen)

I absolutely love this video and that’s really about all I have to say about it. There are some videos that you just love because they exist and, for me, this is one of those videos. I love the atmosphere, I love the lightning, I love the lyrics, and I even love all the water, even though I’m still morbidly afraid of drowning.


Music Video of the Day: Wrecked by Imagine Dragons (2021, dir by Matt Eastin)

Today’s music video of the day is the latest from Imagine Dragons. He’s wrecked because his relationship didn’t work out. At least he’s got a nice beach to think about it on. I can’t imagine anything worse than being depressed some place that isn’t photogenic.

This video was at least partially filmed at Caesar’s Palace. They even got a special thank you.


Music Video of the Day: Monster by Meg Myers (2011, dir by A.P. Fischer)

Is Meg Myers singing about killing a person or about killing an emotion? I think you can view the song and the video either way. The video is wonderfully atmospheric and, yes, the underwater scenes totally freak me out. Meg Myers is an artist who definitely deserves to be better known.


Music Video of the Day: So May We Start, performed by Sparks, Adam Driver, Marion Cotillard, and Simon Helberg (2021, dir by Leos Carax)

This is from Annette, which made quite a splash at Cannes last week and which will be released on Prime later this year. As for Cannes, it’s got a few more days to go!


Music Video of the Day: Blue Monday, perforemd by Orkestra Obsolete (2016, dir by ????)

This is a cover of the famous New Order song, performed on 1930s instruments by Orkestra Obsolete. It’s mysterious and haunting, as these things should be. One almost gets the feeling that this could have been lifted from a new before seen sequel to Eyes Wide Shut.

Enjoy the mystery!

Music Video of the Day: Piece of Work by Loren Gray (2021, dir by Daniel Duran)

Some people might be tempted to say that this is a somewhat shallow video but I would argue that it’s actually a very clever parody. As soon as I saw that the garage had a disco ball, I understood exactly what I was dealing with. That said, as I watched the video, I also assumed that Loren Gray is actually the head of a secret organization of international car thieves.
