MVM – CHRIS CUNNINGHAM

Bjork – All is Full of Love (1999)

First off I want to wish everyone a happy MLK Day. Hope you all have the day off. Secondly, I know we have a lot of new viewers here at Golden Bloggen, so let me reintroduce MUSIC VIDEO MONDAY. Every Monday I strive to bring the greatest music videos to the masses. They always have a running theme, maybe a director,decade, or a genre.

So today I am celebrating Chris Cunningham. He is one of the greatest visionaries of our time. His videos are odd, scary, beautiful, and jaw-dropping. He has been celebrated by Director’s Label, but has never gotten the hype of a Michel Gondry or Spike Jonze. Here’s one of his most ambitious and memorable videos for Aphex Twin. Its guaranteed to freak you out.

Aphex Twin – Windowlicker (1999)

Here’s another freaky video from Aphex and Chris. It must be good to find that person who shares that same strangeness as you. Hype had Busta, Michel had Bjork, and Chris had Aphex Twin. This might be the scariest music video ever made. So watch it late at night with the lights turned off.

Aphex Twin – Come to Daddy (1997)

Madonna’s videos are all over Golden Bloggen. She’s a legend, what can I say? This video is amazing, and its style inspired a lot of commercials and other music videos in the late 90’s.

Madonna – Frozen (1998)

Mr. Cunningham may be the most pivotal person in helping me find one of my favorite bands of all time. This video he did for Portishead was my first introduction to the group. His dark and twisted vision coupled with Portishead’s eerie, moody score make for the perfect video.

Portishead – Only You (1998)

Chris Cunningham has been MIA for a while. This is the ONLY video he has made in the PAST 10 YEARS! But what a hell of a video. It’s really short and Samantha Morton (Minority Report) flashes her naughty bits. Looks like some girl I accidentally brought home when I was drunk. Frightening.

The Horrors – Sheena Is a Parasite (2006)
