NOMI: The Second Greatest Music Video of All Time

I put a couple of new songs on my iPod in the last few weeks.

First up is something I heard from a Verizon commercial featuring Apollo Ohno. The song is called Intro and is in fact the intro song to the self titled album from The xx. The song in the commercial is a little sped up compared to the original and actually sounds better that way. The only other good song on the album is a tune called Crystalized.

Up next is a song I heard at Starbucks called Grand Guignol by the ElectroTango group Bajofondo. ElectroTango is pretty much what it sounds like. The tune is monotonous and repetitive (like any electronic tune) but still catchy nonetheless. This is probably what they'd play if there was ever a rave at Starlight.

The next song is from the best music video that you'll see all year. OK Go, the genius band behind Here It Goes Again, just released what might be the most viewed youtube clip ever when it's all said and done. Don't forget to watch this video in full screen and in 1080p.

Not too shabby. But this right here is the greatest music video of all time.
