Music Video Of The Day: We Are Warriors, performed by Avril Lavigne, feat. Lindsey Stirling (2020, Tom Law, creative director)


I think this is the second video that I’ve seen that was specifically made for the COIVD-19 era.  The first was the video by the Rolling Stones that Jeff shared here a few days ago.

This video is a tribute to those who are on the front lines, battling the virus. All net proceeds of the sales and streams of We Are Warriors will be donated to help Project HOPE’s relief efforts across the world.

Here’s a full list of credits, taking from the video’s description on YouTube:

Special thank you to Lindsey Stirling for the beautiful violin added to this version!

Music Video of the Day: Sleepwalking by Lindsey Stirling (2020, dir by Lindsey Stirling and Graham Fielder)


Are your dreams your dreams or are they messages from the dead?  It’s something to think about.

Lindsey Stirling is one of my favorite performers and this is another great video from her.  During this stressful time, it’s good to know that Lindsey is out there, creating music.

I should also note that I usually get by on two to three hours of sleep a night.  If I could, I’d get by on absolute zero but I’m not allowed do that anymore.  *le sigh*  Oh well!  I’ve never actually sleepwalked, though I find the phenomena of it to be fascinating.  I do usually have some great dreams, though.  Do people have dreams while they’re sleepwalking?  I would hope so.

Enjoy!

Music Video of the Day: Spider-Man Theme, performed by Lindsey Stirling and Lang Lang (2016, dir by ????)


Okay, confession time: I am exhausted.  Usually, when we have a big day like Oscar Sunday, I write out all my posts like a week ahead of time.  I did not do that this time.  So, I spent a good deal of Sunday just trying to keep up with the site and the day.

So, instead of doing my usual rambling about today’s music video of the day, I’m just going to thank all of our readers and subscribers and visitors.  Your likes and your comments are really what makes this site worthwhile.  We’ve been doing this for 10 years now and I still love writing for the TSL as much as I did my first day.  Thank you for reading.  Thank you for your indulgence.  Thank you for being there.

And now, I invite all of you to …. enjoy!

Music Video Of The Day: Mission Impossible by Lindsey Stirling, feat. Piano Guys (2013, dir by ????)


It’s definitely not easy carrying out a top secret spy mission while playing a violin but if anyone could pull it off, it would be Lindsey Stirling!

Please enjoy this fun little video from 2013!

Music Video of the Day: Celtic Carol by Lindsey Stirling (2011, dir by ????)


Let’s start this holiday weekend off with another music video from Lindsey Stirling!

In Celtic Carol, Lindsey is an elf who has been locked into Santa’s workshop.  Apparently, Santa is a really demanding boss, which I always kind of suspected.  I mean, if you’ve ever seen Santa Claus Conquers The Martians, you now what I’m talking about.

Anyway, Elf Lindsey manages to get in the Christmas spirit despite having to work.

Enjoy!

Music Video of The Day: What Child is This by Lindsey Stirling (2012, dir by ????)


For today’s music video of the day, we continue with the holiday theme that’s run through most of the recent music video posts.  We also continue with the Lindsey Stirling theme.  I wasn’t initially planning on making this Lindsey Stirling week on the Shattered Lens but, now that I think about it, why not?

This video finds Lindsey performing in the snow.  There’s a chance that it might snow in my home state of Texas this weekend.  I certainly hope so.  Of course, when we say “it might snow” in Texas, what we actually mean is that it might sleet.  And, if it does snow, we’ll probably get like an inch at most.  But still …. snow is snow!

Enjoy!
