Top Music Videos 2011 – No. 5-1

Here are the final five. Please complement this personal list by leaving a comment.

5. Fair Ohs – »Everything is Dancing« directed by Dave Ma. The truth about Batman and Robin as we have not known it before. Ma definitely established the better looking superhero duo. Perhaps, a little lazy and saving the world is not as important as having a large dinner, but also heroes need time off. Moreover, band and video deserve a lot more attention than they have been getting. Please take note.

4. Panda Bear – »Surfer’s Hymn« directed by Sam Fleischner and the Brooklyn-based creative company m ss ng p eces. This music video is a tribute to all the surfers taken by the sea. Shot in black and white, it follows skeletons who rise from the dead, get their surfboards and make their way towards the sounds of the waves. Pretty neat idea. Don’t miss the other major ghosts video of 2011, Toro y Mois »How I Know«.

3. David Lynch – »Good Day Today« directed by Arnold de Parscau. Great creepiness again. Back in 2010, Lynch announced a music video contest where directors were invited to submit their own music video creations to any of his songs. The master of mystery made the right choice: the winning video was directed by Arnold de Parscau, a reminiscent of Lynch’s own cinematical work. »Crazy Clown Time« marks Lynch’s solo debut as a musical artist.

2. New Romance – »Miles Fisher«. Miles Fisher, cast member of »Final Destination 5« and viral video hit-maker extraordinaire, made this music clip called »New Romance«. The clip is a bloody parody of the american television sitcom »Saved By The Bell«. The short comes from American Psycho producer Jake Avnet and director Dave Green. Highschool is killer!

1. Kyary Pamyu Pamyu – »Ponponpon« directed by Jun Tamukai. As I wrote in July 2011: can not be topped! Flying eyes and toasted bread, a hat made of fruits, candy canes, tons of puppets, over-sized goose, skulls and a consistently charming singer. »Ponponpon« is by definition overloaded as nothing I have seen this year. A nice little trip through the gardens of kitsch. Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is a model, blogger, and, most recently, recording artist from Harajuku. »Ponponpon« is her psychedelic tribute to Kawaisa and Decora culture.
