Show us your favourite music video......

Recommended Posts

We all have different tastes and flavours but music is close to our hearts so why not share...

 

One rule though..... And there's always rules but in this case explain why the video means something to you?

 

Robbie Williams - No Regrets

Offers me a station to think about my beloved wife and if i served all her needs? The hate stated in the recording is.... In my mind the fact she left me and i feel bitter and robbed. It concludes some anger but also brings a tear to my eye and i suppose that's what music "messages" are meant to do?

interesting thread and I hope I dont kill the mood with my post.

 

basically teen suicide is on the increase. and the pressure on younger men is growing and its amazing what support is out there for depressed young adults.

 

I unfortunately lost a dear friend of mine just over a year ago. he was an awsome lad with a smile on his face when with the lads.. at home he was a different person... unfortunately he stopped being social and took a very slippery slope down the path of deep depression until he ended up hanging himself :-(.

 

we did all we could but depression is a horrible black hole which we where unable to rescue him from. depression almost consumed me in my late teens and now as a parent i can see how vunerable young people are.

 

so here is my video

That bought tears to my eyes because i know many young people do get close to the edge and the reason i know that is i was one of them :o Living my childhood with and alcoholic mother and a wife beating father i lived in fear everyday. At the age of 14 i thought life was worthless and i decided to end it, just couldn't see the point of being an adult? Ironically i took my mothers pills designed to make her sick if she drinks. Some time later i collapsed and a day or two later woke up in hospital, seemingly i was one pill away from being successful in my suicide.

 

This is not the sort of confession normally displayed in a public forum but we all have a past however tainted, my one sadly was tarnished but it wasn't my fault, however at the time i was made to feel responsible and it was that responsibility that tipped me over the edge.

Ah crap - remind me how to embed video please?

 

The links don't always embed so don't worry......

 

I watched that video recently and thought it was very well done for an amateur attempt.

Really sorry to hear that, we had a friend of the family kill himself at 19 just over a year ago and the effect on his family has been horrendous.

I had no idea your childhood was like that, I'm genuinely impressed how far you've come having faced so much so young.

 

It's sad these days that this sort of thing is getting more common - sound like an old man saying it but I think things like facebook really are to blame. Facebook in particular is something that makes it so easy to give the impression that your life is amazing, it's like a highlights reel.

 

I know even I've sometimes looked on there and thought it looks like others are having so much more interesting lives than I am. But the reality of it is that I just can't be bothered, if I put all the highlights (and only the highlights) of my life on facebook, there would be people out there who'd think I was living an amazingly exciting life.

 

I don't really have a solution, but it's a sad state of affairs.

Social media is as much as a front as you want to make it, or allow it?. It's a powerful force and those susceptible could and have been taken down by it and i kind of understand that.

 

Emotion is in my opinion the most powerful thing we feel so a negative emotion exasperates depression to a limit? At what point can anyone decide a limit?........ For myself my limit was a lack of guidance, to some extend this paid me a life vision because i had to find my own..... Alone. and i did.

 

My honest view on this is visibility. If the parents fail due to ignorance, abuse or simply don't care, then the authorities can only pick up on this once the risk is visible. After i woke up in the hospital the doctor simply asked if i would do it again...... A no seemingly meant i didn't need any care or watching?

Tony. I am mighty impressed that you where able to put your childhood behind you and make sure a good job of your life. you should be an inspiration to others.

 

I don't think its just social media that is to blame for the massive rise in young people ending their lives. personally i think society is to blame.

so many people idolise the girls in lads mags, girls feel like they should live up to this and show men everything and give them what 'they want'.

i also think it goes for lads too, seeing young men with amazing chiseled abs and great muscular definition makes some feel insignificant if their lady wants that look.

 

Social media, facebook etc play a big part. Its so easy for some little sh*t halfway across the world to make someones life utter misery and its not exactly hard to do.... 'Trolling' i think they cause it. some find it funny whilst others take it to heart. 

I think the whole computer age has to take a major direction change if things are to get better.

 

Also we live in a times where house prices are rising faster than wages, inflation is rising faster than wages, people are loosing their jobs and the whole country is in a state... its pretty easy to get lost in the gloom and forget that people actually care about you and your not alone.

 

I found when Matt my friend was depressed, he really thought that he had no friends and no one cared about him... come to think of it now its so sad that me and all of his other friends and family could not stop him ending his life, such a waste of what i would class as a very hansom, intelligent and wonderful lad.

I agree the pressure of life currently is huge and personal media attacks can diminish peoples confidence sometimes to a critical point. It's so cruel that having the ability now to communicate makes it easy to degrade another human.

 

There's a big issue about depression and that's that other people can't see it? As a young adult and just married i was hit with depression and then anxiety and then just to top it off panic attacks. Doctors offered all manor of pills but i was scared to go down that route, maybe it was the memory of my OD? anyway it was taking control of my life to the point i was nearly housebound. At this point i took counselling and paid for a private hypnotist which i did in desperation because up until then i thought it was bollocks.

 

I was wrong! The hypnotist unlocked pent up fear and anxiety from my youth and seemingly my new settled life needed to make sense of the past. I went to meetings with people who "had" depression but managed to find their way out, i listened and i learnt that i'm not ill or odd or a lesser person but i had to face my past rather than let it envelope my future. It took time but the days where i felt better lasted longer and more frequent and here i am today.

 

The really scary point is you don't see it coming. It's like standing at the kerb, looking left "all clear" looking right "all clear" stepping off and then getting hit by a car, then all of a sudden your in a whole world of hurt but since your arms and legs aren't in plaster no one can see how much it hurts....... :crying_anim02:

This version of this song for me will be for ever my favourite, both track and video.

 

It had quit an impact on my teenage years, but much more of a strong impact on me more recently.

 

When I first started talking with Miriam through the internet we would send each other the odd music video that we liked, or had some impact on us. On one very very late night chatting away online we threw countless videos back and forth, the videos became ones I hadn't heard of but instantly liked and vice versa.

 

After a while I thought I would drop my favourite track into the messages, but a different version she might actually like. At the same time Miriam sent me a link to a track, a completely different version of the exact same track. If that wasn't a coincidence enough, when I said the video I had posted was a version of my favourite track and would send her my actual favourite, Miriam sent me her favourite track at the same time......... we both received this

3 years later and with a baby on the way, we still know we are two parts of the same big puzzle and love every moment together

A very poignant song for me since this was the entrance song my girls chose for their mums funeral. My wife died in my arms just over two years ago at the young age of 49, a victim of the human nemesis "cancer!".

 

The words would mean many things to different people but in this event the words left the crematorium in tears......

Fleetwood Mac - Albatross.......

Ready to go back in time? Just when everything was Motown and punk Fleetwood Mac launched this sound. Excellent vision in my opinion and a classic to-boot.

It must seem like i'm stuck in a loop after losing my wife, well i am and i'm not but some sounds we shared meant something to us and now it means something to me..... The thought, nay want to turn back time would insight most and for many reasons albeit a wish that things were done differently or just the chance to do it all again...... Nevertheless here is my reminder sung by R. Kelly

Oh, that always brings back good memories of a scout camp down on the South coast. Remember going into a chippy that had a juke box and we played it over and over and drove everyone else nuts!

As most know my life is moving on somewhat so certain sounds bring back memories and some add to them unexpectedly.

 

This one by Teddy Pendergrass - Somewhere i Belong tugs at the forelocks since i'm in a transition and holding an uncertain future.

Anyone remember this.... Crocodile Dundee, the end credits. A brilliant feel good movie finishing with a cultural sound fitting to the environment embedded into the structure of the film.... The sound takes me back to happier times when i didn't have a care in the world and it's soothing to go back there now and then.

Eminem - Lose Yourself

 

I was inspired by this song when it was released. I'm not an Eminem or rap fan but the construction of words made me think....

 

One shot, one opportunity

 

Seize everything in one moment, would you capture it

 

Snap back to reality

 

Success is my only option, failures not
