1. Long Road to Ruin by the Foo Fighters,
http://youtube.com/watch?v=68qqyM-_K4w

2. It is a very funny, over dramatic video. This video has a whole story line that is shown throughout the song, it's engaging and interesting throughout the whole video. The video connects with me, because i like the song, and it is a decent, entertaining video.

1.Our Song by Taylor Swift,
http://youtube.com/watch?v=G6s5cxBN8mA

2. This video is cool because it has a lot of colorful, fresh outfits and backgrounds and props used in it. It is a very girly video, but it's fun i guess. It's a light hearted, airy video. The whole concept, is that this girl is in love, and she's talking about her and her boyfriend's song and relationship. The video connects because it's a girly video, and well, i'm a girl.

1. Hero/Heroine by Boys like Girls

2. This is a good video because it's cute, and it has some really good shots, and different backgrounds. The main concept is that the guy loves the relationship he is in. It's serious and mostly light hearted, but also deals with the heavy concept of love i guess.

1) OK Go - Here It Goes Again http://youtube.com/watch?v=pv5zWaTEVkI

2) Everyone has probably already seen this movie, but it is really lighthearted and it is really fun to watch. It also matches with the music perfectly and it is really creative.

1) Snow Patrol - Chasing Cars
http://youtube.com/watch?v=Ajy0w1XPJk8

2) This music video is more sad, and it shows a guy laying in places. It is good because it matches the mood and tone of the song.

1. Morris Brown By: Outkast http://youtube.com/watch?v=QzSNc3IH1eQ
2. The video is good because its a break from the normal rap video, there is lots of bright color no girls dancing in booty shorts. It depicts a alternate universe with pink dogs and talking walls without being comedic. There isnt really a stryline to follow but it still draws in the eyes with lots of dramatic visuals.

1. Eleanor Rigby by the Beatles http://youtube.com/watch?v=boc7rnhkLAk
2. I like this video becuase its way differnt then current videos. It is intresting becuase it mixes animated and reall visuals seamlessly. It is somber and just generally good the music goes with the sequence of the video I like the song so i definateley like the video.

1. Sensual Seduction Snoop Dogg http://youtube.com/watch?v=pKz-RXSeIYA
2. The video is like a mock 80's video its not really serious at all but it is funny it has like purposefully bad camera quality. The video connects because it is something familiar and tacky but its still a goo video.

1. The Freshmen by The Verve Pipe http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVNAp1C8LIw
2. The video was fine, I can appreciate the music more then the video though. The concept is semi-related to the lyrics, but it's about love. It's a dramatic, artsy video, and it connects with me because I like the song.

1. Ocean Breathes Salty by Modest Mouse http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZE-ML-BAAfY
2. It has a variety of shots, and has multiple layers of depth. The story that is accompaning the music, makes the video interesting. I believe that the concept of the video is one of friendship. The video, is sad on many levels, it makes you feel sorry for the young boy in it whilst countering that saddness with the positive imagery of sunflowers. This fact, makes the video resonate, the video moves you the music haunts you, to an extent.

1. Tribute by Tenacious D http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcJwz7wu8_s&NR=1
2. the video is catchy and the video tells a story. The main concept is telling the story through the lyrics, the lyrics form the basis of the video. It's light hearted and funny. It connects on a comedic level, a mood booster if you will.

2 The movie was interesting and fun to watch. It used some animation and had good visuals. The movie was more funny then serious. The movie was good but it didn't connect with me. The movie was about some girls going on a limo drive and they were parting and having fun.The movie had a story.

Its funny and entertaining. It has a good warning message. The main concept is that illegally downloading music leads to more serious crimes like murder. The video was funny. It used a lot of good animation. The video connects with me because it was funny.It takes everything to extremes. A kid downloads a song and then he's being shot at.

1 Weird All "The Night Santa went Crazy,"
The video is good because its very funny. Santa goes and kills his elves and reindeer. He blows up his shop. He goes to prison. All the survivors are having problems. The video connects with me because it was funny. Weird All is a good singer. The animation was good.

THe video was good. The video was funny and had a story. The doctor was operating on a patient. It was funny. I liked how their was a lion in the hospital. They pulled a lot of interesting things out of the guy including a rabit. Their were a lot of good camera shots. The movie was serious. IT connected with me because it was funny. Their was a full medical staff and the movie was shot in a hospital.

Colors by Flow

http://youtube.com/watch?v=fQbocrcHBjA

What I like about this video and Flow in general is that their music videos are not expensive. What I mean by that is that they do not have lamborghinis or have diamonds on their hands. They keep it neat and simple.

Video Period 4 Music Video Time!!!
March 20. 2008

1) http://youtube.com/watch?v=m9nsxKFqjFw&feature=related
2) 50 Cent - P.I.M.P.
I think this is a good video because its an example of a classic rap video. Has the cars, the girls and the ego boosting atmosphere. The various places of shooting are what make this video really good and interesting. It is a serious video about how 50 is a (P.I.M.P) and how he is rich and the best..basically.

1) http://youtube.com/watch?v=pv5zWaTEVkI
2) ok go - here it goes again
I think that this is a very interesting video because the scene is the same the whole time. Honestly they took 6 tred mills - like at a gym, for free probably and then they danced on them. It was cheap to make, good music and bizarre dancing and use of scene. By far one of the best music videos ever.

Days by Flow

http://youtube.com/watch?v=uWdWpFeBh0c

Reason why I like this video is because it isn't sad yet it isn't happy. The mood of the video is in between of happy and sad. This video shows the future where robots take care of civil servant jobs. Then he becomes a member of Flow. After awhile his fame dies out and meets a girl that he met earlier in the video.

1. OK GO, here it goes again. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pv5zWaTEVkI
2. The camera never moves and all the action is happening inside the shot. It is a very unique type of music video where the band is moving almost the whole time.

RATM had a lot of good cut away shots, the insert shots of destruction and then him yelling testify were cool.

2. It's catchy/quick. Not quite sure of concept. More serious than funny. Involved. It's been one of my favorites for a while.

ALENA OWEN, per.4

1. apologize, by one republic
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fm0T7_SGee4
its a verry classy video with a lot of abstract shots.

2. move along, by all american rejects
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSbGur1dz9k
the video fits the song perfectly because everything around him is moving but he never does! its clever and creative.

3. eyes, by rogue wave
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-xTzMjBpxGE
this video is nice because the song is really expressive and amazing, but the video itself is pretty simple. its not as abstract as other videos, its more just real life, which creates an interesting story line that is entertaining to the audience.

2. this video is so cool because they play the whole thing in reverse of him singing and all these random disasters happening to him in a white room. the tome of the video is humorous even though jack johnson is being hit with a fire hose and bouncy balls.

Every Heart by BoA

http://youtube.com/watch?v=SiGWWgBx6qY

This video tells a story of how life should keep going on, from the beginning to the end. Most of the video is a CGI back-round and shows the same scene over and over, still the video is interesting in different perspective.
