I actually started writing this post a couple of weeks ago, but I couldn’t remember the names of all the video clips. So I had to go and have good look and do some researching. I was inspirred to write this post after reading: Life lessons around the dinner table – March Music videos – Day 30
I was reminded about how much this video freaked me out and how I feel about it now. Then it got me to thinking about videos that would freak me out and how basically, as I have gotten older, I get them a lot better. I understand them a lot better. So below I’ve posted a few videos that used to freak me out and not much anymore.
How about you? Did you ever come across a video that scared you when you were young, but not so much anymore?
Massive Attack: Teardrop
The baby floating around in there, with little bits floating by…Then it’d start singing! It was released in 1998, so I would have been 13ish. So the thought of a baby floating around singing, crept me out. This is was around the time we were being taught Sex Education. It all felt like “Alien” too me. Obviously as I have gotten older, I can see the beauty in it.
Soundgarden: Black Hole Sun
This one was mainly with the faces that expanded. Still freaks me out actually,lol…But when I was younger it used to really terrify me.
R.E.M – Losing my Religion
I still don’t like how they poke around in the “angel” I cannot watch this video still! I love the song, just don’t like the video.
Marilyn Manson: The Dope Show
Marilyn Manson has to be one of the most interesting artists to have ever existed. My brother was fascinated with Marilyn Manson when we were younger. I didn’t get him, at all, and this video confused me. As I have gotten older, I have “gotten” it…Well, I think I have. I never really did drugs when I was a teenager and now as I have gotten older, still haven’t. So I have no idea if this is what happens on Dope? Marilyn Manson is now one of my favourite artists. His version of “Tainted Love” is probably my favourite, including the original.
