MUSIC VIDEOS I HAVE BEEN TRULY TRANSFIXED BY, CHRONOLOGICALLY
I'm talking songs I didn't like that much until I saw the video, late for school/work because they're on TV, repeated streaming when I was supposed to be productive, sitting through YouTube commercials because I keep refreshing the screen, can tell you the whole plot and all the scandals from Making Of on MTV.
- •Jeremy - Pearl JamI was a somewhat morbid child.
- •Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm - Crash Test DummiesOk v morbid maybe.
- •Cryin' - AerosmithI could not get over the fact that she hooked the damn bungee cord to her belly button ring zomg I still can't owwwwwwwwww
- •Criminal - Fiona AppleEven 11 year-old me understood that this video was the sexiest thing I'd ever seen.
- •She Will Be Loved - Maroon 5For the sole reason that the girl in this went to my high school and that fascinated me. She was voted celebrity look-a-like to Avril Lavigne #lol.
- •Toxic - Britney SpearsThe online premiere of this video and it's sputtering display on my computer was the first time I realized that my slow internet MIGHT be ruining my life (gimme a break I was a teen) (also I was having a mini sexual awakening to Britney's kiss with that guy I mean YOWZA amirite?)
- •I Believe In A Thing Called Love - The DarknessYou guys, I don't think I should have to explain this, but this was not a particularly sober part of my life.
- •Everytime - Britney Spears¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I know I have a Britney problem.
- •Move Along - All American RejectsI love me a montage.
- •Hung Up - MadonnaDat ass.
- •Confessions of a Broken Heart - Lindsay LohanIt's like a damn telenovela, I can't stop watching.
- •Glamorous - FergieG-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S
- •Ayo Technology - 50 Cent ft Timbaland and JTI had a very specific use for this video.
- •Second Chance - ShinedownI'm a sucker for a good story based video. Also I could never figure out why she was doing ballet half naked in the garage and it captivated me.
- •Jar of Hearts - Christina PerriOmg ok so one of my friends from college was in a relationship with a cop who was like really handsome and wonderful and was so perfect he seemed like a Lifetime movie character AND THEN HE WAS because he was actually having a torrid affair with one of her childhood best friends and telling INSANE lies about it and they all found out because this girl's fiancé found the nude photos she had been sexting on CHRISTMAS! Anyway, she's a dancer in this video.
- •We Found Love - RihannaSaid it once (tbh said it a ton of times, including as a medical student to my attending while we were both scrubbed in on a major surgery 😁), I'll say it again. THIS MY JAM.
- •Blank Space - Taylor SwiftI love this whole video, but I am especially into the part where she's standing ON the horse. Will watch it every time for that part.
- •Sorry - Justin BieberI blame the 2015 Thanksgiving Drink Off. This video is incredible.
