01. Intro
Chester introduces the playlist of his favorite music videos

02. OK Go - This Too Shall Pass - Rube Goldberg Machine version
No description needed for this piece of art. Just watch the video and smile.

03. Red Hot Chili Peppers - Give It Away [Official Music Video]
Released as the lead single from their album "Blood Sugar Sex Magik", "Give It Away" definitely became one of the classics from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Although Warner Bros did make several proposals with ideas for the music video, the band decided not to choose any of those suggestions. Eventually the music video for "Give It Away" was created by French director Stéphane Sednaoui. He came up with the idea of a "very desolated and very graphic landscape", while heavily focusing on the band members with little to no outside influence. The video was filmed in black and white while the band members were painted with silver acrylic. The overall mood of the video was intended to be upbeat and lively like a personification of the song.

04. Michael Jackson - Thriller
"Thriller" from Michael Jackson is one of those songs that should be on everyone's list of favorite music videos. 30 years ago, this video premiered worldwide on MTV and until today, it remains one of the most legendary music videos ever made. The King of Pop may have left us in 2009, his music will live on forever.

05. Tool - Sober [hq - fullscreen]
Tool is an American rock band from Los Angeles, California. Songs to listen to are Schism, Stinkfist and Vicarious. When it comes to music videos, there's another masterpiece from the band called "Sober". The song was released as the second single from their debut album "Undertow". Chester chose to put that one on his playlist.

The music video for "Sober" was made in 1993 and directed by Fred Stuhr. What makes this music video so special, was the fact that it was all filmed using stop-motion animation, with the characters' models designed by Adam Jones. What we see in the video is a small humanoid being, living in a small room with nothing more than a bed, table and chair. In the beginning of the video, the creature finds a wooden box. Of course he opens it. To see what happens next, I suggest you watch the video.

06. Cage The Elephant - Come A Little Closer (Official Video)
Cage the Elephant is an American rock band that has released three albums so far. Their first self-titled album came out in 2008 and was a great success with several successfull radio singles. Over the years, Cage The Elephants already opened up for bands like Stone Temple Pilots and Muse.
The video that Chester added to his playlist is Cage The Elephants' most recent music video for single "Come a Little Closer". Good choice in

07. Linkin Park x Steve Aoki - A LIGHT THAT NEVER COMES (Official Music Video)
As we're all fans of Linkin Park, we don't need to introduce this song anymore. It all started with Mike getting interested in EDM music and in the end we got a collaboration between LP and Steve Aoki and even more surprisingly, LP's second remix album "RECHARGED".

Now that you've seen Chester's playlist with his favorite music videos, what other song deserves to be on that list?
