Ten Music Videos with Special Effects Part V

1. Kool A.D. feat. Himanshu - "Gwyneth Paltrow" 2012  I don't mind discovering songs two years too late, it's like finding a buried treasure. This definitely qualifies for a Mask compilation but real people doing amazing things is a special effect in my world. Most overplayed song of the day for many days in a row.

2. Stella - "Friends" 2015  This lady is Carlos Santana's daughter, it may be a lot of pressure to be the offspring of a legend. Plus, no one could write about you without mentioning your famous parent (as shown above). Fortunately, I'm the child of a plumbing contractor and a public health administrator so I don't have this problem. Pretty great song and video though, I'll have to see what she does next to determine my stance on Stella.

3. Gabriel Teodros and Soulchef feat. Sarah MK - "Black Love" 2014 (SEATTLE MUSIC) Gabriel Teodros on Wednesday, January 21 at The Crocodile Back Bar with Dex Amora, Shakiah, and EarDr.Umz The Metrognome.

4. Tool - "Stinkfist" 1996

5. Jehst x Strange U - "Dolph Lundgren" 2014  I would really love to see Jehst and other great UK Hip Hop artists in Seattle more often. I should probably just go there and soak it all in for a few months.

6. Perfume Genius - "Queens" 2014 (SEATTLE MUSIC)  This is an epic music video. The face changing is perfect, it also reminds me of Eight Music Videos with Changing Faces.

7. Betty Ford Boys - "Henny Lean" 2014  I almost didn't even watch this because the band and song names threw me off. I'm glad I did, this Tron business is pretty rad.

8. Maze Koroma + Mat Randol - "That Ain't Fair" 2014  (Portland)  Thank you to Grape God for telling me about the Renaissance Coalition website. I foresee field trips to Portland in my future. Hopefully these two will be some of the RenCo artists that Grape God is bringing with him to The Crocodile Back Bar on February 8.

9. Turquoise Jeep - "Comin Down Ya Chimney" 2014  These dudes are whoa. Definitely looking forward to their show March 21 at The Crocodile.

10. Lauryn Hill - "Ex-Factor" 1998  The special effect is that in most of this video she looks like she's in slow motion but she still manages to make it look like she's getting the words right; skillz.
