I haven't paid attention to music videos in probably twenty years. Growing up our cable company didn't carry MTV so the only exposure I had to videos was Night Tracks on TBS. That just totally dated me. Videos have never really been an influence on music for me, that is until I saw the video for Chandelier.
My daughter alerted me to it because she knows I love to watch any kind of dancing. She was right, I loved the video. I've watched it several times since then. Yes, I'm aware it's Maddie from Dance Mom's, but that's not why I like it, even though I think she's a phenomenal dancer. The stark, minimalist setting spotlights the dancer wonderfully. I envy the freedom of dancing through the house like the girl in the video has. I vicariously live that feeling when I watch the video and it's so liberating.
