So this thread is pretty self explanatory. What are some of your favorite music videos on the web? Who are some of your favorite musical artists? I will kick this thread off with three (3) of my absolute favorites. One is a video of Luciano Pavarotti singing Ave Maria, and that is the one song that is always guaranteed to make me cry. The second video I’ll post is a music video by one of my favorite solo artists who goes by the name of Everlast. The last one I will post is a homemade Eucharistic music video that I found on youtube thats really cool. I hope you all enjoy these, and I hope there are many more that follow these.
10 Commandments of Chivalry
The Making of a Soldier of Christ
Okay, my picks are not nearly so sublime.
Here is a cover of the song “Mr. Sandman” by the German power metal band, Blind Guardian:
I’m sure it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but I find the video to be quite amusing. It’s that German sense of humor.
I also enjoy the song “The Islander” by Nightwish:
The video sort of reminds me of the movie “Up”, but I’m not sure what it is all supposed to mean. :shrug:
I guess if you’re looking for music videos with a Christian message, this would be a good one.
The song is “Everything” by Lifehouse. The skit is one of the typical “Turn Around” type of skits that seem to be a popular part of the Youth Ministry repertoire. This one is done pretty well.
I remember Everlast from when he was just a kid: youtube.com/watch?v=DwQbPgouUYo

HOUSE OF PAIN ROCKS!!! Thanks for posting that.
They definitely don’t take themselves too seriously. One of their albums is based on Tolkien’s “The Silmarillion.” They’re lyrics are generally pretty Christian-friendly.
My tastes seem to have gotten heavier as I’ve gotten older. It is interesting how our tastes change. :o
Yeah, but after his outfit went south he did some soul-searching, renounced the drunk-a** bad boy image and lifestyle, and converted to Islam. Now he raps about injustice. Oh well, we all find our own paths.
Well heres a couple for you. The first one is a Prong video, and its pretty damn heavy, and the second one is Blues Traveler performing live on Letterman with their heaviest song that they ever made. Its a song called Crash Burn. I would love to go see Blues Traveler live, and I do think the next time they’re anywhere in the Chicagoland area, I’m going to see them.
I wasn’t aware that he converted to Islam. I think thats one of the reasons I like his music so much though, (Not because of the Islam thing.lol!!!) because he is singing about injustice in the world.
I’m not a real big fan of rap anymore. I went through my little gangster rap phase, but I got over that. I pretty much draw the line with Everlast. I also really like how he incorporates different musical instruments like acoustic guitar, violins and things like that. I think that I also appreciate the fact that he’s not dropping f bombs every ten seconds and singing degrading things about women, which seems to be the norm as far as rap goes. He actually brings class to rap, if thats possible for everyone to believe.
That one actually made me cry the first time I watched it. It never gets old.
And from Spain, where I’m posting, some gypsy flamenco because it makes me happy
Prong… classic. I can never think of them without thinking of “Snap your fingers, snap your neck.” Quite a peculiar song title. I never got into them for some reason. I think the aforementioned song scared me a bit.
You’re right, I don’t think I’ve ever seen Blues Traveler rock that hard.
FIRST TEAM! HOOAH!
This next one is a recruitment video: WARNING it does show a terrorist with an RPG being taken out; it is not graphic but he is killed.
You want to join the military this is what’s it’s about baby. Well partly.
I like both.
How about some Metallica? youtube.com/watch?v=H7csvgL-G3E
Thats pretty cool, Iv’e never heard that version before. Thanks for posting that.
Now, heres some real Metallica. I’m also posting a couple of old school videos. One is a band called Thin Lizzy doing a song called Bad Reputation, and the other one is a song called Wild Dogs by Tommy Bolin. The Tommy Bolin video isn’t actually a video, just the song with a bunch of pictures, but the song itself really rocks.
