YouTube has tons of videos. Some stay forever, and others come and go, including some of my favorites.
Anyway, these animated music videos have stayed for many years. I discovered them a while ago, and still enjoy them today.
Let the reviews begin…
1: The Ultimate Showdown
If you grew up in the 2000’s or 90’s, you probably remember this specific music video. It was especially hot in 2008.
It starts off with Godzilla hopping around Tokyo, and then Batman trying to defeat him. Then other characters join and try to defeat one another.
The plot of this music video is about a battle between various fictional characters, and that only one will survive it. The song is catchy and the lyrics and happenings crack me up.
If you love slapstick humor, I would recommend this video.
2: If Disney Movies Were Historically Accurate
Made by the YouTube channel, “Cracked,” the video begins with a princess leaving a castle and singing a song about depressing and insane things that happen as she wanders through the village.
Some of the moments include that the reason the village remains quiet was because of the plague that killed everybody, caused by envious “witches,” a 10-year-old girl pregnant with her brother/son, and when the princess talks to some Jews. Unfortunately, they are depicted in an offensive manner. Many people have commented on that.
Nevertheless, the music video remains engaging. It also includes some twists and turns.
3: Eddie’s Teddy
This video was created by the channel, “EddsWorld,” back in the 00’s. I actually discovered this clip from my brothers.
The characters have munchkin-like voices, narrating how a boy called Eddie caused trouble growing up. But once his mother was gone, his mood and motivations improved, yet not in a good way.
The chorus states that Eddie disliking his Teddy bear meant that he wasn’t a good kid. One memorable moment was when a girl who loved him told him to stay inside for safety. Then he locked the door, but ate the key. Of course, in real life, you would have to go to the ER for that (and you may not survive).
Anyway, the tempo is also quick and fun to listen to.
4: The Hamster Dance
This song is older than the other songs. It came out in 2000, and it sounds as if hamsters sang. The chorus has no words, but the verses do. They tell you how to do the hamster dance.
In this music video, a few hamsters travel around the world on a flying surface (I’m not sure what it is), and perform their special dance. That lightens up those in tough situations, such as cacti sweating (cacti do retain water – but only for up to 2 years) and a snake yawning to a guy playing the flute.
It is cute and fun at the same time.
While only some videos stay on YoutTube forever, it’s still worth it to check out these videos. Maybe they will appeal to you, too.
