Ten Music Videos with Cars or Driving Part III

1. David Lynch and Lykke Li - "I'm Waiting Here" 2013  It's like a mini road trip in the desert, but, you don't have to spend any money on gas.

2. Cyne - "Haze" 2005  I discovered Cyne earlier this year when they played Barboza. I was nine years late.

3. Blood Orange feat. Robert Owens - "Uncle ACE (Kindness remix)" 2014  Dev Hynes AKA Blood Orange brings some much needed 80's flavor to 2014.

4. Grynch - "Carry On" 2014 (SEATTLE MUSIC)  This is the first video from Grynch's Street Lights Album, buy it, you need it. He had an amazing SOLD OUT Album Release Party at The Crocodile with The Bar (Prometheus Brown + Bambu), Dave B, and Jake One.

5. Depeche Mode - "Everything Counts" 1983  Depeche Mode sounds fresh every time. They use a xylophone, a melodica, and a shawm in this magical video.

6. Dean Blunt feat. Inga Copeland - "The Narcissist" 2012  This New York showcase has Sped-Up City Scenes like these other ten. It's a thing, you'll see.

7. The System - "Don't Disturb This Groove" 1983  Dope Mercedes chain.

8. MC Breed and DFC - "Ain't No Future In Yo Frontin" 1991  This is another classic in the Rapping Behind Fences category.

9. Billie Black - "I Waited For You" 2014  She just became the Queen of Sped-Up City Scenes.

10. Ra Scion + Vox Mod feat. Blake Lewis - "Venus In Transit" 2014 (SEATTLE MUSIC) They scored a Lotus for their music video because Blake Lewis needed a super styley ride to pull up to Q in.

Ten Music Videos featuring Fringe

1. Salt 'N Pepa - "Expression" 1989  *This is one of the best Salt 'N Pepa songs, it is from their Blacks' Magic album.

2. Goldfrapp - "Ooh La La" 2005  *Fringed bell bottoms and a mirrored horse, pretty epic.

3. En Vogue - "Hold On" 1990  *It's En Vogue dude, they are the height of awesomeness.

4. Beastie Boys - "No Sleep Til Brooklyn" 1986  *Hard to believe that this song is 28 years old.

5. Poor Righteous Teachers - "Easy Star" 1991  *From their Pure Poverty album.

6. Ssion - "Luvvbazaar" 2013  *This guy really knows how to work the fringe.

7. Nancy Sinatra - "Bang Bang" 1966  *Such a downer, especially with the Kill Bill memories in there. She is killin' it with her 60's pink fringed dress superstardom though.

8. Counting Crows - "Mr. Jones" 1993  *Oh come on, you know it's a great song. It's just really, really overplayed.

9. Was Not Was - "Walk The Dinosaur" 1987  *This song was NEVER cool, but , it was definitely memorable. I love that we get to time warp back 40 million years in this music video. I'm 99% sure the keyboard player is wearing a fringe tie. You can really see it during his solo starting at 1:57.

10. Marley Marl feat. Craig G, Masta Ace, Kool G. Rap, and Big Daddy Kane - "The Symphony" 1988  *Juice Crew busts out the gold chains in the Old West.

Ten More Music Videos w/ Backwards Scenes

1. Until The Ribbon Breaks feat. Homeboy Sandman - "Perspective" 2013  *This song is a masterpiece. My latest favorite Homeboy Sandman song is "Mind Vs. Matter" on L'Orange's The Orchid Days album.

2. Cris Prolific feat. Illa J - "Voyage" 2010  *I freakin' love this song. Cris Prolific is a Belgian producer and Illa J is is one of the good ones.

3. Cory Jreamz - "Alive" 2013  *I think this song is interesting, but, kind of a mess.

4. Jypsy Jeyfree - "Jypsy Train" 2013  *Whoa, her feather looks crazy when the wind is blowing.

5. Kingdom Crumbs - "Pick Both Sides Of My Brain" 2013  *I can't wait to see what Tay Sean, Mikey Nice, Jerm D, and Jarv Dee do next. Here's the link to one of their great Live on KEXP performances.

6. Marsha Ambrosius - "Stronger Than Pride" 2014  *Jeru sample with a Sade name, that's a bold maneuver. This is one of the Floetry ladies.

7. Kyla La Grange - "The Knife" 2014  *I can't hate this song, it's just so poppin' fresh.

8. After The Fire - "Der Kommissar" 1982  *She takes her lipstick off with her lipstick; it's either a cool trick or backwards scene.

9. Porter Ray - "Float" 2014  *This has a car driving backwards AND smoking in reverse. Porter Ray is part of the New Era of Seattle Hip Hop.

10. DJ Krush feat. Deborah Anderson - "Skin Against Skin" 1997  *This is definitely NOT the real music video, but, the song is great. "Skin Against Skin" is on DJ Krush's Milight album.
