I absolutely love finding a video with a favourite actor being all brilliant in it. Below are some songs I love, with music videos made more awesome by actors I love. And I even showed restraint and left out the Passion Pit one with Sophia Bush. But only because I posted that one yesterday.
Let us begin with the obvious. ‘Weapon of Choice‘ by Fatboy Slim. Let’s just say, I am on board for anything Christopher Walken decides to do. I could watch the guy hail a cab. There’s just something about him that I find naturally hilarious.
And now onto some choices that are as much about the music. ‘Lover of the Light‘ by Mumford & Sons is, like any of their songs, absolutely magnificent. Then throw in Idris Elba and, well, I am truly captivated.
And now, a lesser known video, I think. ‘Not About Love’ by Fiona Apple. I am a bit partial to Fiona’s songs. I have all her albums. I think she’s extremely talented. And then add Zach Galifianakis. That clown. Well, it’s a cute video I think. Makes me do that half-laugh, half-smile thing.
And now, some absolute joy. ‘Don’t Worry Be Happy‘ by Bobby McFerrin. Starring Bobby McFerrin, Robin Williams and, um, that… other guy.
And a classic. ‘You Can Call Me Al‘ by Paul Simon. Because, I love Chevy Chase.
And to finish, something kinda whack. Matthew McConaughey in ‘Synthesizers‘ by Butch Walker and the Black Widows.
