Some Music Videos to Accompany Snow. And More Snow. And Yet More Snow. (Enjoy the summer, Southern Hemisphere!)

Just to get things started (and clean out some files,) here are some music videos that contain great tunes and interesting video experiences.

First up is folk singer Shawn James, who decided to cover the A.A. Bondy song “American Hearts” in a wolf sanctuary near Fort Collins, Colorado. Some of the wolves came to check out the musicians, as hoped, but to their surprise, the wolves in the area also joined in for part of the song. You can check out the wolf sanctuary, which also takes donations, at:

Next is the video from alt rock Franco-American band Hold Your Horses! for their single “70 Million.” In it, the band members and some pals re-create famous works of art. You can check out their music at iTunes and here:

This additional video takes you through it with the paintings they copied:

 

And lastly, alt rock band OK Go, the king of creative silly music videos, had to come up with a doozy to top previous efforts. So they decided to go weightless for their new single, “Upside Down & Inside Out” from the new album Hungry Ghosts. You can check out their music at: http://okgo.net/

Bonus, a previous music video for their song “Needing/Getting,” which added a car to their Rube Goldberg machine style videos and is quite funny:
