[VIDEO] Music Video Roundup – 3.3.13

Last night my buddy Sam was asking where the Music Video Roundups went so this is my answer to him. Nowhere! Get on this latest batch of eye-goodies. Dancing, decomposing, dreaming, driving, and a dab of demented depression. Get into it!

Workout – “Life is a Nightmare”

Years & Years – “Real”

Nicky Blitz – “Alex” (lyric video)

Turn up the volume on “Blast Off” high enough and the correctness gets up and dances a jig with a toothpick in its mouth and a switchblade in its hand. Steel drums, kazoo, and razor sharp whistling decorate the main course of guitar and drums for the perfect summer meal.
