Smashing Conf Barcelona 2016

60 Beautiful Music Videos

Imagine if three minutes of video could save your career. That’s what happened to OK Go when the group produced its own film clip after its label threatened to let them go. Gone are the days of multi-million dollar music videos; today they are all produced with love on small budgets by a committed group of creative people.

Below are 60+ original music videos to inspire you and get you excited about the medium again. Some old, some new, but I guarantee you haven’t seen all of them before. Note: these are presented in random order. Just something to relax on a rainy sunday. Please be patient: the page may need some time to load.

    its a really nice option to spend a sunday with music-videos. and yes you are totally right with your writings above, about ok go and the rest. but honestly you are wrong, maybe im the first who writes this, but i really have seen all videos and the most i have on my psp

    again a great list, you made me very happy. but a question to you, did you like all vidoes in your list, could you enjoy them and is that your music style?

  7. 7

    I love this post, It is not only Out of the box thinking, it took some time and thought to compile! And you had to watch them to make sure they were great! I love most all of the videos in this collection already! Aphex twins are AWESOME! I am glad that you decided to put them in the list, since they don’t usually get mainstream listening, along with some of the others you placed in the list. Great Job!

    And the list goes on and on. All cinematic masterpieces. She’s also partly responsible for discovering and making big new music video talent, as she’s worked with all the greats from Fincher to Romanek to Cunnoingham and Traktor…
