Music Match World Cup 3 Soccer Football Music Videos

Because of the World Cup we’ll have a special edition Music Match where we’ll look at 3 different music videos from the official themes the world cup has had over the decades. Having to listen to every single theme made me realize that there really aren’t many good themes and music videos only appeared in the last few decades. There seems to be more than one official song for each world cup also, some a little more to do with the country itself while others just random. In the same way the lyrics can be very related or only vaguely. Also worth noting that most themes seem to be in Spanish or have some sort of Spanish word at the very least, but enough of that and let’s get to the 3 best music video songs that the World Cup has had to offer.

Adelén – Olé

A Norwegian singer brought this song for the World Cup in Brazil, I have to admit I dont’ remember this song ever playing but I do like that it incorporates th flags of various countries and shows off a little of Brazil while still keeping it a bit generic. The song is not the catchiest but it isn’t bad by any means and the music video really does a fine job making you feel excited about the fact that it’s a world event.

We begin wi Continue reading Music Match World Cup 3 Soccer Football Music Videos

Music Match Christmas – 3 X-Mas Music Videos

I’m a big fan of X-Mas songs but since most of my favorites are the usual suspects that you’ll hear a thousand times in stores by the time the season is over I thought I’d do something a little different. Today we feature three X-Mas songs that were featured in different Christmas specials so at least these are different interpretations from the usual classics and they have cool music videos to along with them as well. So, let’s listen and watch 3 of MiscRave’s X-Mas playlist.

Grace Jones – The Little Drummer Boy – Pee-Wee’s Playhouse Christmas Special

The oddest song in this odd X-Mas special by Pee-Wee Herman, the performance by Grace Jones is absolutely fantastic. You can tell just how much artistic fortitude just oozes out of her every movement even when she’s in Pee-Wee Herman’s flippin’ Playhouse. I especially love it when Pee-Wee starts dancing like an idiot and Grace Jones just goes along with it. Her outfit is not very Christmassy in fact she takes her winter jacker and gloves and dances in this weird plastic body suit that makes you question if it’s even appropriate for the children watching and yet mesmerizing at the same time, a must watch performance every X-Mas at MiscRave.

Music Match Thanksgiving 3 Holiday Music Videos

Thanksgiving is an important holiday and yet there really aren’t many songs about Thanksgiving, when I realized this I did some research to see if I could find anything as it seemed so odd that no one had done some. My search proved mostly futile unless you wanted a crappy parody song but I was able to find a few songs here and there to bring you three classic Thanksgiving songs for your playlist and Music Video to accompany them.

Addams Family Values – Eat Us (A Turkey Named Brotherhood)

The only parody song that I decided to post here since it’s easily the best one, a great movie if you haven’t seen it in a while and the song is short and sweet. Their whole Thanksgiving re-creation is a bit odd since it’s the summer but who cares it gave us this gem. Parody songs are abundant but none of them I would consider classics as this one which is why it was chosen. Continue reading Music Match Thanksgiving 3 Holiday Music Videos

Three Music Video Recommendations Music Match Volume 14

Halloween is here and to celebrate this edition of Music Match we’ll feature 3 spooky music videos to go along with the holidayso enjoy the music recommendations and awesome music videos for a playlist to listen and watch through with your friends at a party.

Moderat – Rusty Nails

A very sensual music video of sorts or scary depending on your view, can’t say it’s a great one but the song is so damn good I had to share it. This is likely an example of when a music video can actually hurt the song since it’s distracting and doesn’t help the video at all with its imagery. Though I’m sure some fan already wrote a whole page of why this music video is perfect for the song, fans write the darnest things.

Music Match Halloween – 3 Halloweeny Music Videos

Halloween is here and to celebrate this edition of Music Match we’ll feature 3 spooky music videos to go along with the holidayso enjoy the music recommendations and awesome music videos for a playlist to listen and watch through with your friends at a party.

Ozzy Osbourne – “Bark at the Moon”

Combining the story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde along with the WOlfman and a bit of Dracula for this music video that only Ozzy himself would be able to pull off without many people questioning the decisions. The music video really is something to behold while the song I don’t find it my style at least for a metal song it is easy for pretty much anyone to listen through as it

Music Match 13: 3 Spooky Music Videos

It’s October and the 13th edition of Music Match we’re in the Halloween mood so we’ll feature 3 spooky music videos to go along with the season so enjoy the music recommendations and awesome music videos for a playlist this season.

Mushroomhead – Solitaire Unraveling

What better music video to start this off with than with a band that uses scary masks, a mix of metal and electronic their sound is different than what you normally find in the genre. The music video is a bit artsy but that’s what’s cool about it even if not the creepiest thing they’ve done it’s a good song with an interesting music video that you can’t go wrong checking it out.

Listen back.. Adema Insomniac’s Dream

Adema is one of those bands that got big at the peak of nu-metal’s popularity but sadly that meant it was all downhill from there. Luckily before all that happened they were a rising success with their nu-metal defining first album but before they ever released a second one we got this EP to tide us over. Mostly consisting of remixes, a cover and a few new tracks this was too little to keep the momentum going as nu-metal began to die but let’s take a quick listen to it and judge it.

The EP begins with Immortal which worked for the revival of the Mortal Kombat franchise even if it was just a continuation it was marketed that way since it was the first game in current gen systems and it had been a while since the last game. This helped the song get a lot of airplay though that didn’t seem to help the band much, mixed with random live footage and in-game footage of Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance you do have some scenes of Marky Chavez singing in a CG Mortal Kombat ring along the band, this is easily the best part of the video though it should’ve tried to use this a little bit better. The song doesn’t fit Mortal Kombat even if the lyrics feature things that happen in the franchise, at least the song is decent even if nothing particularly special about it.

We then get Shattered which was a b-side from their self-titled album released in some international releases. I can see why it didn’t make the original cut since even if not bad it doesn’t fit as well with the rest of the more energetic self-titled album. The Alice in Chains cover of Nutshell is not particularly bad but like a lot of covers they fail to give it a spin of their own and end up sounding inferior to the original.

We then get two remixes, first with Freaking Out” (Chris Vrenna Remix) and “The Way You Like It” (Sam “Sever” Citrin Remix) but neither is particularly good, the first one doesn’t even make that many changes and the few that they do mostly make the song worse with only a few added bits being better, the second one is a little bit better but mostly just an inoffensive remix. We also get a lvie version of “Do What You Want to Do” (Live) which is ok and “Giving In” (Radio Mix) which no one asked for except maybe a completist who wanted that version but it’s barely any different.
