Music Video Of The Day: Adore You by Harry Styles (2019, dir by Dave Meyers)

Today’s music video of the day is the video for Harry Styles’s Adore You and you know what?  It’s kind of brilliant.

It takes place in the fishing village of Eroda where everyone suffers from “resting fish face,” which is another way of saying that no one there ever smiles.  But then Harry Styles is born and he has a smile so bright that it literally blinds people!  It all goes on from there and it’s a really cute, clever, and kind of touching video.

This video was directed by Dave Meyers, who has done videos for just about everyone in the world.  He did the video for Katy Perry’s Fireworks for instance.  (Remember when you couldn’t go anywhere without hearing that song being played?  That was …. well, that torture, to be honest.  It’s a good song but not one that benefits from being overplayed.)  Meyers has also done videos from Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Justin Timberlake, Kelly Clarkson, Avril Lavingne, P!nk …. like I said, just about everyone.


Music Video of the Day: Live Forever by Liam Payne feat. Cheat Codes (2019, dir by Similar But Different)

One good thing about being rich is that whenever you’re coming out of a relationship or you’ve been stricken by ennui or if you’re just not sure about the meaning of life, you can jump off an isolated cliff into the ocean and you can somehow survive and, to quote the title of today’s music video of the day, “live forever.”

Of course, it helps if you look like Liam Payne.  I mean, those abs can do anything.


Music Video of the Day: Blue Monday, covered by Orgy (1998, dir by ????)

Since yesterday’s music video of the day was New Order’s first video for Blue Monday, it seems only appropriate that today’s video should be for Orgy’s cover of the same song.  I’m usually not a huge fan of covers but Orgy brings their own unique interpretation to the song.


Music Video of the Day: Blue Monday by New Order (1983, dir by ????)

With Sunday’s release of the trailer for Wonder Woman 1984, the choice for today’s music video of the day is an obvious one.  The trailer is memorably scored to New Order’s Blue Monday and the song even trended on twitter as a result.  It’s a good song so here’s the video.

This is apparently the first of four different videos that were released, over the years, for Blue Monday.  Val previously wrote about the 1988 version.  This version is from 1983 and it’s definitely very much a product of the 80s.  The song’s timeless, though.

I know there’s several interpretation as to what this song is about.  I assume it’s about death but then again, that’s kind of my default interpretation as far as lyrics go.
