Music/Video Round-Up

Because we have to let some things be about art (and stop stuffing ourselves with sweet, sweet candy), here's a bunch of videos that have been playing on my favorites and/or I haven't been able to take out of my mind:

Gwen Stefani's 4 in the Morning - All you really need in a video is Gwen Stefani rolling around in bed. Maybe have her walk around in a vest and tie? Or take a bath. She looks chin-y in some shots but I think she's rarely looked better. The song is great too (it's her collaboration with No-Doubter Tony Kanal).

Madonna's Human Nature - I used to not pay too much attention to this song and video when I was younger. But now as a designer I think it's the perfect marriage of medium and message. The choreography is awesome and strangely appropriate, mainly because it's so inappropriate! It's so cool, like she thought "You want to put me in bondage? I'll show you bondage!"

Beyoncé's Deja Vu - Somehow, dance moves that are supposed to look kind of dumb when performed by 90% of the world's population look great when she does them.

Beyoncé's Get Me Bodied - Just lots of fun. Makes me wish I didn't have two left feet. Hey, it was her birthday yesterday!

Lauryn Hill's Ex-Factor - The video is nothing special, but this song is so anguished it has to be here.

Justin Timberlake's Lovestoned/ I Think That She Knows - Eh? What's he doing here? I still think his voice is crap and the lyrics of this song are beyond dumb, but the music is written well and the video... It excites the mathematician in me. Looks very good that I want to steal it for my next design project.
