La La La La La
In late September, Fergie Ferg returned to the music scene with her new single LA Love (La La) which has been released in lyric video form and remix featuring YG form. Today we get to see the just-released music video for LA Love (La La) (Remix Featuring YG) that was shot on the streets of Los Angeles last month. I’m actually very pleased that the video features the remix version of the song because I really dig the slightly different sound from the original single version … as well as YG‘s contributions to the song. Check out the video above and see if you LA Love it.
Watch the vid before it gets yanked offline
Taylor Swift was planning to release the music video for her new single Blank Space at a later date, apparently, but Yahoo! accidentally (on purpose?) jumped the gun and released the video early … before it realized it’s mistake and pulled the video off their site … but not before the video was able to be repopulated elsewhere online. The video is out so watch it above while you can. The video was directed by superstar director Joseph Kahn and takes aim at all of the rumors about Taylor that call her hopeless romantic-turned-psychopathic man-eater. It’s a clever video for a great song. Enjoy.
UPDATE: The video has now officially been released, so let’s cut some cake and enjoy the video over and over and over again.

From the soundtrack to 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1'
In late September, we got our first listen of Lorde‘s new song Yellow Flicker Beat, which is featured on the soundtrack that she curated for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. With the movie opening in theaters in just a few weeks, the time has come for Lorde to release the music video for the song. Click above to watch the video for Yellow Flicker Beat in full. I, personally, love the song very much and really enjoy this video. Lorde busts out her trademark dance moves, as you can see, and looks stylishly slick. It’s a great video for an amazing song.
"If you want to keep me ..."
Last month we got to check out the lyric video for Ariana Grande‘s collaborative song with The Weeknd Love Me Harder and today we get to check out the just released music video for the song. I think Ariana is at her best when she’s collaborating with another artist (like, for example, her song Break Free with Zedd) because Love Me Harder, I feel, is one of her better songs. The moody video, shot in a surprisingly well-lit abandoned warehouse, isn’t all that spectacular but I love the song and I love seeing these two artists together on screen. I like the video, I love the song. What do you think?
Brought to you by PITNB Intern Iris!
We announced recently that PITNBr Iris is now (and henceforth forever more/until she gets too fancy for us) The PITNB intern Iris. Lemme tell you about Iris. She’s kind of a big deal, and she has been saving my life over the past couple of weeks, helping out with #TBT, awesome galleries (like the Celebrity Hallowe’en Costumes, which I love), and now handling much of our Facebook stuff. Last week I asked her to help me find some creepy Throwback music videos for Hallowe’en, and she came up with some great stuff. Click inside for more!
New music from his upcoming new album
Back in July we got our first look at singer-turned-actor Marilyn Manson in the final season of Sons of Anarchy (where he plays an incarcerated white supremacist gangster) but today we get to see MM back in his role as rock star. Manson has released for free a new song titled Third Day of a Seven Day Binge that will be included on his as-yet untitled new album, due out in 2015. Click the embed above to hear the song in full then head over to the official MM website HERE to download the track, if it tickles your fancy. Marilyn Manson is playing a string of intimate Hallowe’en concerts here in SoCal this week and I’ll be seeing his show in Santa Ana tomorrow night. It looks like MM is trying to get his music career going again so … we’ll see how well that goes for him.
Back in June we got to check out the brilliant Ok Go music video for their song The Writing’s On The Wall and today we learn that they are back with another brilliantly brilliant music video for their new single I Won’t Let You Down. As you may know, Ok Go have made a reputation out of making really impressively inventive music videos and this newest video is proof that they’ve still got it. If you enjoy perfectly synchronized choreography timed perfectly with the opening and closing of umbrellas, filmed in one long shot, then this is the music video for you. The song’s not so bad either ;)
"Head up, head up Keep holding, holding"
Chvrches released their debut album The Bones of What You Believe last year but it is proving to be the album that keeps on giving. The group has just released the official music video for Under The Tide, the latest single from their album, which you can watch in full above. This clip may remind some of you fans of ’90s alternative rock of Matthew Sweet‘s music video for Girlfriend which also incorporated anime scenes in his video … an effect that I greatly approve of. Honestly, my favorite Chvrches songs are the ones with Lauren on lead vocals but Under The Tide is a great song, now with a great video.
And it's really not all that good
For weeks now, One Direction has been teasing the release of their music video for their new single Steal My Girl and at long last … it has been released. Honestly, I’m not crazy about the song and I really don’t like the video. The best thing about this video is Danny DeVito being Danny DeVito. The worst thing about the video is, well, everything else. Have a look, see what you think.
