Music Videos are a very big part of our culture as humans. I'm sure that not everyone will agree with me on that, but when you stop to think about it, it's true! There can be so much emotion and passion in one music video. Music alone is powerful, but when you add faces and stories behind it you get a whole new aspect on the song. And thats what music videos do! I've made a list of my personal favorite music videos, and I'm sure that you will love them as much as I do!
1. Made in America
I am proud to stand and say that I'm an American citizen and my prayer is that every American can say that! This is one of my favorite music videos because it is powerful and has a strong meaning behind it! Every country in this world has beauty and is different in its own way but America is the land of opportunity. I encourage each American citizen to watch this music video!
2. Who Are You when I'm Not Looking
We all love a good love song, and this is one song that you can relate to as a woman. Whether you are the women who burned the toast, bit off your nails, or soaked in the tub after a long hard day, this song can speak to you on a personal level. I believe this music video shows that men look for those imperfect qualities in us, and love us for them.
3. Mama's Song
I love this song so much that I actually had it at my wedding! This is one of the few music videos that can make me cry nearly every time I see it. Just watch it and you will know exactly what I mean, especially if you have a close relationship with your mother.
4. I Pray for You
This music video has a humorous take on breaking up, but in reality we can all relate! I know I've had my fair share of moments that I have wanted to dedicate this song to "friends" i've had over the years. Watch it for a good laugh if nothing more!
5. You're Gonna Miss This
No matter how anxious, ready or exciting it is to move out on your own and constantly be looking to the future, this music video is a great reminder to remember to enjoy each phase of your life as it comes. Time goes by so quickly, and it's not something you can get back so enjoy it while it's on your side. Warning: Keep tissues handy on this one! Don't you love music videos that make you cry?
6. American Soldier
This music video is very personal and real to me in more ways than one. My husband is in the military, and these are realities that we deal with every day. However, nothing can make you more prouder than to serve your country! This music video is a tender, yet harsh reminder of the good, bad and ugly that comes with serving one's country, and the pride that goes with it!
7. Back to December
I'm sure that everyone has that moment in their life they wish they could go back to and do differently. I think that's what this music video is all about. Regrets and wishes, second chances that never happened. It's a sad song, but sung with closure, which is something that some of us never do get, making it one of my favorite music videos.
These Music Videos are just a few of MY personal favorites, but I know you will love them too! Music videos can help you to better understand a songs meaning while bringing you to a personal level with the singer and songwriter. What are some of your own favorite music videos?
