Music Thursdays: 2013 Year In Review; Top Music / Songs


Geek Alabama Music Thursdays Geek Alabama New Year

In the first of several posts to come.  Geek Alabama will come out with the top things that happened in the year 2013.  First up, the top music in 2013!  From the funny “What Does The Fox Say” to the weird “Wrecking Ball” video, 2013 has given us some interesting music videos and songs.  Here is a list of our top music videos of the year!

What Does The Fox Say – Ylvis

What started out as a joke has become one of the top songs for 2013!  I just love how they describe the sounds of a fox!

Wrecking Ball – Miley Cyrus

In what is the weirdest music video of the year, you will get to see Miley Cyrus riding a real wrecking ball, while naked.

Treasure – Bruno Mars

I loved the song plus the music video!  The music video takes you back to a time when you saw many variety shows on TV.  The video is in 1970’s technology!  Can’t wait to see Bruno Mars in the Super Bowl halftime show!

Safe and Sound – Capital Cities

I love the music video because it takes you back in time with some great classic clips!  Then these people come to life in today’s world.  I like the dancing!

Like a Rolling Stone – Bob Dylan

In what has to be the best music video ever, Interlude made a music video with 16 surfable channels with everyone saying the lyrics to the song!  Below is a video clip, to view and play with this music video go to: http://video.bobdylan.com/desktop.html

Rock N Roll – Avril Lavigne

This is a very interesting music video from Avril Lavigne.  The entire music video is based like a comic book with plenty of cool comic book graphics!

Blurred Lines – Robin Thicke

This is another very interesting music video where everything was shot behind a white wall.  Those hashtags taking up the whole screen were annoying!

Mirrors – Justin Timberlake

I like the song plus the music video is interesting.  At least this music artist is staying out of trouble and not glorying sex, drugs, and violence.

Yeah Yeah – Willy Moon

I have not heard of this artist until now.  But you probably heard this song on TV.  The music video features a lot of dancers!

Just A Reflektor – Arcade Fire

Arcade Fire amazed all of us with an interactive music video!  This is an open-source Google Chrome experiment that lets viewers use a computer, phone, or tablet to manipulate their video’s graphics or even incorporate their own faces into the clip!  To play, go to: https://www.justareflektor.com/

Hopeless Wanderer – Mumford & Sons

This is a great music video where four celebrities play the roles of the band members.  I love the classic stuff and the dancing!

Bad Dancer – Yoko Ono

Yep, this music video does feature some bad dancing, like the title says.  But you also get some artwork and some animation.

The Next Day – David Bowie

Looking for a Game of Thrones inspired music video, this is the one!  There are some very interesting scenes in this music video.

Royals – Lorde

The music in this song is great!  The music video features some people who just stare at things.

Get Lucky – Daft Punk

This is an interesting music video showing everyone wearing these metal masks from the 1980’s.  Then these two people with plastic faces show up.

Started From The Bottom – Drake

In this music video where fake snow is blowing onto Drake.  He provides a great message!  Everyone starts from the bottom and works up!

Black Skinhead – Kanye West

Good song that I enjoy hearing.  Some of the lyrics could be cleaner.  This is the version from Saturday Night Live.

Roar – Katy Perry

In this spoof disaster music video, you see Katy Perry trying to get to safety.  The lyrics are perfect for a song!

Alive – Empire of the Sun

This music video is perfect for any cosplayers out there!  You get plenty of people dressed in interesting costumes!

You Can’t Be My Girl – Darwin Deez

In this interesting music video, you see Darwin Deez photo-bombing in every scene doing something funny!

Summertime Sadness – Lana Del Rey

In one of the few cases where the remix does better than the original, I love this song and it gets me in a good mood!
