Favourite Music Videos of 2011

10. Kanye West – All of the Lights

Even though I love this video, the concept was pretty much taken from Gaspar Noé’s award-winning psycho-thriller, Enter the Void‘s opening credits. I guess to Hype Williams, copying is a form of flattery.

9. Lana Del Rey – Born to Die

8. Metronomy – The Bay

7. The Strokes – Taken for a Fool

There’s nothing to love when you see a constant clip of 5 different Julian Casablancas and Nick Valensi.

6. Rihanna Feat. Calvin Harris – We Found Love

Directed by Melina Matsoukas, who was also sued by David LaChapelle for her S&M video. I was really surprised that Rihanna went back to her for ‘We Found Love’. This video was well done in my opinion because I honestly haven’t seen this much emotion and action from Rihanna in a while. But the downside is.. I’m pretty much tired of seeing female musicians kissing some guy on top/inside/outside a car. Overdone.

5. Lady Gaga – Judas

Epic music video. Definitely my favourite one by Gaga. What’s more surprising is that her choreographer, Laurieann Gibson (Torontonian!), was also the director of this video. There was a lot of biblical/religious references, but this is nothing new to her fans. I was mostly drawn to the cast and the huge amount of work that went into the sets and wardrobe. Definitely her best one in my opinion.

4. Foster the People – Call it What You Want

This music video and song title matches each other perfectly. The reason why I probably like this video so much is because of the pan in and out shots.. and the randomness.

Directed by Ace Norton – who also worked with Death Cab for Cutie (Crooked Teeth), Steve Aoki & Armand Van Helden (BRRRAT) and Felix Cartel.

3. The Black Keys – Howlin’ for You

I couldn’t believe that the director for this music video (Chris Marrs Piliero) also directed Britney Spears’ – ‘I Wanna Go’ single. Concept and screenwriters are ESSENTIAL.

The Black Keys blew up so quickly throughout 2011, mainly because of their creative music videos. Such as Tighten Up and their most recent single off their new album, Lonely Boy. From what I know, I don’t see many music videos set as a false movie trailer with full narration of the story line. Which, in my opinion, seems to be pretty damn creative and it gets the attention easily.

2. Matt and Kim – Cameras

Directed by Jonathan Del Gatto, who also directed Block After Block for Matt and Kim.. when or even how OFTEN do you see two band members beat the shit out of each other on ‘camera’? Fun, hilarious and entertaining. Love this music video.

1. Make Some Noise – Beastie Boys

What a smart and GREAT way to get back to their fans with an ENDLESS list cameos in a 30 minute short film as their music video. I was just completely speechless when I first watched it. In a way, they took the Kanye West approach to make a film, but in this case, they made it into one big parody of themselves.

Honorable Mentions:

Robyn – Call Your Girlfriend

Major Lazer – Original Don Ft. The Partysquad

Chromeo – When The Night Falls

Sleigh Bells – Rill Rill

Mash-Up Mondays – Culture Shock – Titus Jones

0

“Culture Shock will feature roughly over 50 artists mashed up into about an hour’s worth of Titus Jones mashups. Every single one of the tracks, with the exception of the first Culture Shock track I’ve already released – Hold Your Sexy Arms Against Me – will be brand new, never before heard.

It’s heavy on the Britney, heavy on the 80′s, and heavy on the hits. It’s also got a few good 90′s tracks in there as well, plus some good early 2000s tracks too! It’s VERY dance-able. I’ve stirred in a few country artists, some classic rock, some rap and hip-hop, some electro, and it’s chock full of shameless POP.” – Titus Jones

Today marks the release of Titus Jones’ first full mash-up album Culture Shock. With a total of 14 new mash-ups, I hope all the listeners here on Room-Noise will enjoy this brand new album. I have always been a huge supporter of Titus Jones and so far, this album sounds fantastic.
