"Thief" by Our Lady Peace - Music Video Tribute

This is one of those songs that not many people know about but it is one of my all time favorites. The music video itself isn't anything tremendous but the song is something to be treasured. The video basically just shows the band members getting drenched by a downpour. They don't seem phased and they have some pretty cool slow motion shots of the water falling on their faces. The song itself is actually about a young girl they knew that had a brain tumor. The "Thief" inside her head refers to the tumor itself.

The video does a good job to portray the mood of the song and you can almost see the helplessness in the band member's eyes. The rain doesn't seem to bother them because they are too concerned for the young girl's life and feel that they can do nothing to help her. The song starts out with such powerful lyrics, that if you listen carefully to the words, it almost gives you the chills. "I don't want to understand this horror / There's a weight in your eyes that I can't admit...". It is such powerful song and the video does a good job of capturing the essence of the song. Without further explanation, here it is... Hope you find it as moving as I did.

Semisonic - Singing In My Sleep Music Video Tribute

After a brief hiatus, I figured it would be fun to kick off this return with a great music video that you probably have never seen, "Singing In My Sleep" by Semisonic. This video has that classic 90s music video feel and shows them just rocking out. The song may not be my favorite song on the album, that would have to go to "Gone To The Movies", but it is my favorite single. The album Feeling Strangely Fine is underrated as a whole and this song flew under the radar as well. You might know Semisonic best for their song "Closing Time", which was a big radio hit in 1998. While Semisonic hasn't released anything recently, Dan Wilson, front man of Semisonic, recently won the Song of the Year Grammy for his work with the Dixie Chicks, co-writing the song, "Not Ready To Make Nice". It is nice to see that they still have a voice in the industry today.

Here's the video for "Singing In My Sleep". Enjoy it.

Heavy by Collective Soul Music Video

So apparently they never made a music video for this single, or its just not easily found on the internet. In any case here is a live session of the song.
