Ten More House Party Music Videos

1. GoldLink - "Sober Thoughts" 2015  This Kaytranada produced song is straight fire. My team at ReignCity got to curate a show with Red Bull Sound Select and we scored Goldlink with Porter Ray and Dave B at Barboza on August 5th; wicked.

2. Angus + Julia Stone - "A Heartbreak" 2014  This well lit and cray house party video is one of my most overplayed songs of all time.

3. Cheddar Dust - "Live Raw Dope Phat" 2013 (SEATTLE MUSIC) Wizdumb and Madshroom's (of Black Magic Noize/FFU) short-lived side project. I'd love to hear more of them as a duo.

4. Schoolboy Q - "Hell Of A Night" 2014  Seattle's own Lace Cadence and Parker Joe cameo this video reminiscent of "Earl" but with a more powerful drugshake.

5. Nite Jewel - "One Second Of Love" 2012  I found this on Grimes' Tumblr, it's perfectly Grime-y.

6. ScienZe + King I Divine - "Enjoy Tonight" 2012  Good ol' red cups. My favorite ScienZe project remains to be "Happiness Is."

7. Beastie Boys - "(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party)" 1986  This no-brainer may be the King Of House Party Videos.

8. Quincy Vidal - "Pillow" 2014  Can't decide if I like this Brooklyn artist, the party looks fun though.

9. Seinabo Sey - "Hard Time" 2014  The Swedes are killing it. I had to work the night of her recent show at the Showbox Sodo Lounge, low key tragedy. It would have been better at The Crocodile anyway.

10. Glenn - "Cannonblaster" 2015  (TACOMA MUSIC) I wish ILLFIGHTYOU played in Seattle more.

Ten Music Videos with Horses Part Deux

Here's a link to a YouTube playlist with 21 Horse Videos for your viewing pleasure.

 1. Intelligent Hoodlum - "The Posse (Shoot 'Em Up)" 1993  This is the first track on the Posse Soundtrack. I have a VHS tape with Intelligent Hoodlum performing this song Live on BET (and many other early 90's music videos), it's one of my most prized possessions.

2. Future Islands - "Seasons (Waiting On You)" 2014  This song rules. I can't wait to hear the Madlib/Future Islands dude (Samuel Herring) collaboration.

3. Laid Back - "White Horse" 1983  There isn't a horse in this video, but, I figure the name is good enough. The chick in this video is probably trying to cross her eyes because she can't believe how much the singer of Laid Back looks like a cat.

4. The Good Sin - "Promise Me" 2014 (with Additional Vox by Tay Sean)  (SEATTLE MUSIC) Another gem of the Seattle music scene, this city is rad.

5. Londonbeat - "I've Been Thinking About You" 1990  The version of this video that contains horses is "blocked in your country on copyright grounds." (Le Sigh) This is a rad song though so I'm leaving it here dammit.

6. Ra Scion and Vox Mod - "Fixed" 2014  (SEATTLE MUSIC) They have a ton of music video skill points.

7.  TĀLĀ - "Serbia" 2014 This chick is kind of a badass. FYI, she's from London, not Serbia.

8. Dark Time Sunshine feat. Child Actor - "Valiant" 2012  (SEATTLE MUSIC) A falcon and a horse for the win.

9. Falco - "Rock Me Amadeus" 1985  Eighties perfection.

10. M.I.A. - "Broader Than A Border" 2015 In a disturbing turn of events, M.I.A. has released her new video exclusively on Apple Music so I can't embed it. Bummer dude, but naturally since M.I.A. is so f***ing amazing, it's worth linking to.  "Broader Than A Border" via Apple Music
