Music Video of the Day: Ex’s and Oh’s by Elle King (2015, dir by Michael Maxxis)

Since I shared the first video for Elle King’s Ex’s and Oh’s yesterday, I figured that I should probably share the second version today.

This is the official version and, while it’s nice to see men getting objectified for once, I have to admit that I still prefer the first version.  That version, after all, had zombies.

Still, enjoy!

Music Video of the Day: Ex’s & Oh’s by Elle King (2014, dir by ????)

To a lot of people, this will always be known as the Lifetime song.  That’s because Lifetime used to always play this song in their commercials and it always fit in perfectly with whatever melodramatic movie was being advertised.  Like the best Lifetime films, Ex’s & Oh’s may sound dramatic but it’s actually very humorous and self-aware.

Just consider some of my favorite lyrics:

Well, I had me a boy, turned him into a man
I showed him all the things that he didn’t understand
Whoa, and then I let him go
Now, there’s one in California who’s been cursing my name
‘Cause I found me a better lover in the UK
Hey, hey, until I made my getaway
One, two, three, they gonna run back to me
‘Cause I’m the best baby that they never gotta keep
One, two, three, they gonna run back to me
They always wanna come, but they never wanna leave

Myself, I loved this song even before it became a Lifetime anthem.  This is one of those songs that it’s fun to sing off-key to while you’re stuck on Central Expressway.

There’s actually two videos for this song.  The video that I shared today is the first version and I like it the best because there’s zombie at the end!
